Apologies for cross-posting:
Register now for the 2009 Red Island Repository Institute on Prince
Edward Island - July 20-24.
Reserve your spot at the Fedora-focused Repository Institute on Prince
Edward Island, one of Canada’s premiere travel destinations known for
its sandy beaches, golfing, seafood and iconic red dirt roads. The 1-
week hands-on workshop will be led by Chris Wilper and Thorny Staples
(Fedora Commons), Matt Zumwault (MediaShelf) and Mark Leggott
(Islandora, UPEI). Register soon, as the seats are limited to 20
participants and they tend to go fast. If you plan on attending you
should also book a room as soon as you can, as the summer is premiere
time on the Island.
The Institute is hands-on and is targeted at individuals from
institutions planning or running a repository program and is intended
for users with a wide range of experience, from managers to
programmers. Based on last year's feedback, we have added a number of
break-out sessions tailored for either managers or developers.
Attendees will be provided all the information and tools needed to
implement and maintain a flexible repository program using Fedora.
Since the Institute is a combination of lecture and hands-on
experience, we encourage all participants to bring their own laptops.
This will allow participants to return to their place of work with a
fully-functional Fedora installation for further development and
testing. Those participants who are not able to bring a laptop will be
provided with one to use for the duration of the Institute.
Registration includes meals (except dinners for Tuesday to Thursday),
special events and all materials. The workshop agenda and
registration form are now available at http://vre.upei.ca/riri/.
