Fedora is the robust, modular, open source repository platform for the management and dissemination of digital content. Fedora 4, the latest production version of Fedora, features vast improvements in scalability, linked data capabilities, research data support, modularity, ease of use and more. Fedora Camp offers everyone a chance to dive in and learn all about Fedora.

Training will begin with the basics and build 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 and Fedora gurus. 

Previous Fedora Camps include the inaugural camp held at Duke University, the West Coast camp at CalTech, and the most recent, NYC camp held at Columbia University. Co-hosted by by Texas Digital Library and the University of Texas Libraries, the camp curriculum will provide a comprehensive overview of Fedora 4 by exploring such topics as:

  • Core & Integrated features
  • Data modeling and linked data
  • Hydra and Islandora
  • Migrating to Fedora 4
  • Deploying Fedora 4 in production
  • Preservation Services

The curriculum will be delivered by a knowledgable team of instructors from the Fedora community: David Wilcox - Fedora Product Manager, Andrew Woods - Fedora Technical Lead, Bethany Seeger - Amherst College,  Aaron Birkland - Johns Hopkins University,  Mike Durbin - University of Virginia
