Welcome to the Summer of Islandora

Today we are officially announcing a summer-long series of specialized Open Meetings we are calling “The Summer of Islandora”. Each month we will be giving our regularly scheduled Open Meetings a theme and bringing together demos & presentations from community members all centered around said theme.

As COVID travel restrictions are still making travel difficult in some areas, and in light of the time of year, we have decided to postpone Islandora Online or IslandoraCon until we are more confident in our ability to host an event at the caliber we as Islandorians have come to expect. The Summer of Islandora will replace these events for this year and we hope that showcasing our progress over the past year will get people excited for our next in-person event!

What to Expect:

Open Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month from 10:00 - 2:00pm Eastern online. The dates for the Summer of Islandora sessions will be:

  • June 29

  • July 27

  • August 31

Registration is not required to attend, we just ask that you email community@islandora.ca for a calendar invite or password for the zoom session as we do not want it publicly available for privacy reasons.

The theme for June will be: Intro to Islandora

Subsequent themes for July and August will follow as we iron out speak we details and agendas, so stay tuned!

As always, there will be time to bring your questions and specific use cases to the Open Meetings. We encourage you to join us for any or all parts of the session as part of what makes our community strong is our willingness to help one another! See you all there.
