JOIN Fedora at ELAG2017 Athens

Austin, TX  The 41th European Library Automation Group (ELAG) Systems Seminar will be held at the National Technical University of Athens, in Athens, Greece from June 6 to 9 2017. If you will be traveling to ELAG2017 (http://elag2017.org) please join us at the Fedora Bootcamp, “Automating Digital Curation Workflows with Fedora,” on June 6.

Bootcamp attendees will be given pre-configured virtual machines that include Fedora bundled with the Solr search application and a triplestore that they can install on their laptops and continue using after the bootcamp. These virtual machines will be used to participate in hands-on exercises that will give attendees a chance to experience Fedora by following step-by-step instructions. After an introduction to the features and benefits of Fedora, participants will learn how to create and manage content in Fedora in accordance with linked data best practices. Participants will also have a chance to import and export resources to and from Fedora as part of a digital curation workflow. Finally, participants will learn how to automate workflows for indexing, data transformations, and derivative generation.

The ELAG2017 Fedora Bootcamp costs 50EUR to attend. Please contact Fedora product Manager David Wilcox with questions <dwilcox@duraspace.org>.
