This is first Gephi workshop dedicated to Gephi Plugins developers! Come and learn how to write your first Gephi plugins and ask questions.
The workshop will start with a 1-hour presentation of Gephi's architecture and the different types of plugins that can be written with examples. Details about Gephi's API, code examples and best practices will be presented in an interactive "live coding" way. The Gephi Toolkit will also be covered in details. The second part of the workshop will be dedicated to help individuals with their projects and answer questions. Depending on the audience's needs we can discuss plugin design, how to code UI, databases, toolkit, data sources or any plug-in idea you have.
Gephi is a modular software and can be extended with plug-ins. Plug-ins can add new features like layout, filters, metrics, data sources, etc. or modify existing features. Gephi is written in Java so anything that can be used in Java can be packaged as a Gephi plug-in! Visit the Plugins Portal on the wiki and follow the tutorials.
