Spring Hydra Camp 2015 – Yale University Library

We’ve just finalized details for the Spring 2015 Hydra Camp and registration is now open. As usual, the class provides an introduction to Ruby, Rails, the Hydra technology stack, metadata management using both XML and RDF data models, test driven development, and collaboration on open source software projects. With the production release of Fedora 4, we’ll also be showing off Sufia running on Fedora 4. This intensive four day course provides an overview of the skills and tools necessary to develop successful Hydra solutions once you return to your home institution.
