The Islandora community wrapped up our first Nova Scotian iCamp last week, having spent three days learning and sharing with this amazing Mount Saint Vincent University view as a backdrop:
We opened bit with an update about the state of Islandora CLAW and all of the features it already has in place as it races towards a first release:
Followed by a day of hands-on workshop training. The Admin Track spent most of their day building an Islandora 7.x site from scratch, and we ended the track by debuting the first Islandora CLAW workshop and switching to build mode in the latest software, making objects and collections with CLAW's more Drupal-y interface. The Developer Track did their workshop Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style, building the lesson through questions and requests from the group.
The last day of camp was turned over to session from attendees, including gems like:
- Branching Out: Diversifying Islandora at the Mount
- Islandora-as-IR: It's not just Scholar!
- Modelling Herbarium Data in CLAW (a real, live Islandora 6.x to Islandora CLAW migration!)
- The Ins and Outs of Migrations: Practical Tips from Lessons Learned
You can see slides from all of the iCampHRM sessions in the camp schedule.
Many thanks to our instrutors, our attendees, and to Mount Saint Vincent University for hosting us on their beautiful campus. Stay tuned for news about where Islandora Camp will go next...
