Islandora Camp is going to Fort Myers, FL from May 4 - 6. We'll be holding our traditional three day camp, with two days of sessions sandwiching a day of hands-on training from experienced Islandora instructors. We are very pleased to announce that those instructors will be:
Nick Ruest is the Digital Assets Librarian at York University, a cornerstone of the Islandora community, and one of its most experienced instructors, with five camps and the Islandora Conference under his belt. Nick has also been Release Manager for four Islandora releases, is the author of two solutions packs and several tools, and is Project Director of the Islandora CLAW project.
Diego Pino is an experienced Islandora developer and an official Committer. Although this is his inaugural Islandora Camp as an instructor, he has been helping folks learn how to get the most out of Islandora on our community listserv since he joined up. Diego started with Islandora in the context of handling biodiversity data for REUNA Chile and has transitioned over to develop and support the many Islandora sites of the Metropolitan New York Library Council.
Melissa Anez has been working with Islandora since 2012 and has been the Community and Project Manager of the Islandora Foundation since it was founded in 2013. She has been a frequent instructor in the Admin Track and developed much of the curriculum, refining it with each new Camp.
Melissa VandeBurgt is the Head of Archives, Special Collections, and Digital Initiatives at Florida Gulf Coast University. She cut her teeth as an instructor during the Islandora Conference, co-leading a workshop on Building Collections.
