Back to the Conference Site

Islandora's May 19th post-conference includes things that didn't fit into the main conference schedule, such as long and more specific workshops, interest group meetings, and other community gatherings. Post-conference events will take place at Hamilton Public Library Central Library, a short walk from the regular conference venue.

Move to Islandora Kit: For all your migration and batch loading preparation needs

Instructors: Mark Jordan (SFU) and Marcus Barnes (UoTSC)

MIK, the Move to Islandora Kit, has evolved from a tool for migrating from CONTENTdm to Islandora to a comprehensive framework for preparing Islandora objects for batch ingest. Two of MIK’s key features are its extensibility and its configurability. This three-hour workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to get hands-on experience with MIK and to explore ways of using it to support local workflows, both for migration and for ongoing content production.

Participants should come prepared with access to an environment that has PHP 5.5.0 or higher command-line interface installed and working, including bare-metal Linux, Mac, or Windows laptops or an instance of the Islandora Vagrant. If they want, participants can also bring some metadata (in CSV format) and accompanying images if they want to generate Islandora ingest packages for them during the workshop.

Fedora 4 Workshop

Instructor: David Wilcox (Duraspace)

This half-day workshop will demonstrate Fedora 4's capabilities through hands-on instruction, including data modelling, linked data best practices, and integrations with search applications and triplestores.  No prior Fedora 4 experience is required. 

Islandora IR Interest Group Meeting

Organizer: Bryan Brown (FSU)

This Post Conference session will provide members of the Islandora Institutional Repository Interest Group to meet each other IRL and discuss a variety of topics face-to-face. Topics of discussion will involve CLAW IR planning, IG leadership, and codebase stewardship.

CLAW Meet-up

Organizers: Danny Lamb (Islandora Foundation) and Nick Ruest (York University)

An in-person meeting of those working on Islandora CLAW, or interested in working on Islandora CLAW. Focus will be on development and how to contribute. A preliminary document to brainstrm topics and activities is here and all are welcome to make suggestions.
