Thursday, October 13th: Workshop Tracks for Repository Administrators and Islandora Developers 

This is a full day of workshops/tutorials where you can get your hands on Islandora and gain some practical experience, either via the user interface (admins) or by digging into the underlying code (devs). The Dev track tends to be fairly loose and will be tailored to what the audience wants to do, so the schedule below is just a rough outline. Admins, your track is a lot more structured and will cover all of these topics plus whatever individual requests we have time for.
