On Wednesday, November 3rd of the upcoming DLF Fall Forum, there will be a workshop on Hydra, an open source framework for quickly minting Fedora-backed digital library applications. Immediately following DLF, there will be a Hydra Partners meeting on November 4, 5 & 6th  at Stanford University; these meetings are open to the Hydra community, and both current and prospective members are encouraged to participate.

Thursday, November 4th will be dedicated to a one day Hydra Camp, introducing the concepts, technology stack, and development environment for the project . This day will build upon this month's successful & energetic Hydra Camp in Minneapolis, and will be tailored to those curious about or new to Hydra, and wanting to come up to speed or accelerate their adoption.

Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th will be the regular quarterly meeting for Hydra partners, with collaborative specification, planning and development for the open source project. Participation in these discussions is open to those who are actively developing and working towards adopting Hydra, and will contribute to advancing the project core. The Hydra Steering Group will also have a closed meeting on Saturday, November 6th.
