What will be happening at #iCampGTA? Check out the full schedule of events.
Our instructors have prepared a curriculum which blends discussion, hands-on experience, collaboration, and community presentations.
Day One and Three will focus on developments, initiatives and of course, you, 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).
Having a hard time deciding on which track to attend?
For repository and collection managers, librarians, archivists, and anyone else who deals primarily with the front-end experience of Islandora and would like to learn how to get the most out of it, or developers who would like to learn more about the front-end experience.
For developers, systems people, and anyone dealing with Islandora at the code-level, or any front-end Islandora users who are interested in learning more about the developer side.
We will be posting slides after the camp for those wanting to check out discussions and material from the other track.
#iCampGTA will begin in just 19 days, and we are so excited to see participation from over a dozen institutions in this summer camp!
We are pleased to introduce the team ready to lead these workshops:
