Instructors Announced for Fedora Camp at NASA

From David Wilcox, Fedora Product Manager
The Fedora team will offer a Camp from Wednesday May 16 - Friday May 18, 2018 at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland just outside of Washington, D.C.  The instructors include Esmé Cowles, Princeton University; Josh Westgard, University of Maryland, and the DuraSpace Fedora team; David Wilcox, Andrew Woods and Danny Bernstein. Training will begin with the basics and move toward more advanced concepts – no prior Fedora experience is required. Participants can expect to come away with a deep dive Fedora learning experience coupled with multiple opportunities for applying hands-on techniques working with experienced trainers from the Fedora community. 
Previous Fedora Camps include the inaugural camp held at Duke University, the West Coast camp at CalTech, NYC camp held at Columbia University, and the most recent, Texas camp, co-hosted by by Texas Digital Library and the University of Texas Libraries.  The camp curriculum will provide a comprehensive overview of Fedora by exploring such topics as:
  • Core & Integrated features

  • Samvera and Islandora
  • Migrating to Fedora 4
  • Deploying Fedora 4 in production
