About Islandora Camp

Come learn, work, and play at this year’s Islandora camp. Held between July 20-22, the second Islandora camp provides introductory and intermediate sessions conducted by the Islandora specialists. In the morning, sessions will be held for special Islandora topics. Beginners can learn the basics of building and configuring collections in Islandora and seasoned developers can participate in advanced sessions. In the afternoon, folks will have the opportunity either to work on the development of a collection in Islandora (from data they bring with them or can access remotely) or to work on an Islandora challenge. Throughout the camp, Islandora developers and librarians will be available to help you learn to customize Drupal at your home institution.  You will also have the opportunity to learn about our roadmap and become a part of the project. As part of the camp's 'unconference' atmosphere, sessions and the structure of the day will be partly chosen by you.
