Having just wrapped up a two-month spree of Islandora Camps in the US (two camps is a spree, right?), Islandora has set its sights across the Atlantic and has officially opened up registration for our next camp: Islandora Camp UK 2014, to be held on the campus of King's College London with sponsorship from the Freshwater Biological Association (and seriously, a big thank-you to our sponsors for making this one possible).
Camp will take place over three days: Days One and Three will be filled with regular sessions about what's new in Islandora and the Islandora Community. Day Two will be a full day, hands-on workshop where you can either build and configure a new Islandora site (Admin Track) or learn how to build a custom Islandora module (Developers Track). We have a great team of instructors ready to lead these workshops:
Kirsta Stapelfeldt, once the Repository Manager of the Islandora Project, Kirsta is now the Digital Scholarship Unit Coordinator and the University of Toronto Scarborough. She is also an active member of the Roadmap Committee, a frequent guest-blogger on this site, and your maven of all things Islandora admin-interface.
Donald Moses is the Digitization Initiatives & Systems Librarian at UPEI, a printer of 3D objects, and a Formbuilder guru. Ask him about microservices.
Alan Stanley is a programmer with discoverygarden Inc. Alan's past exploits include being the Lead Programmer for the Islandora Project, running a bike shop, and being an honest-to-goodness blacksmith. Ask him about kayaking. Or cooking. Or running. Really, just ask Alan anything, he probably has a story.
Nick Ruest is the Digital Assets Librarian at York University. He is also a member of the Islandora Roadmap Committee, a prolific committer and contributor of new modules to the community, and the first Islandora contributor to get their face in little pink hearts. Nick blogs at ruebot.net.
These four fine people will also be giving regular sessions, but we want to hear your voices at Islandora Camp UK as well. Our Call for Proposals is open until March 15th. We hope to see you in London!
