Announcing an Omeka S workshop
- UPDATE: To help us plan, we ask that you register by JUNE 8 2018
We are happy to announce a day of workshops and activities for developers and users of Omeka S on June 22, 2018. The event will include an overview of the design of Omeka S, as well as introductions to resources (mostly items, but other things as well), module, and site development from the Omeka team. The morning will give a high-level conceptual overview of Omeka S, and the afternoon will involve hands-on exploration of site building and module development. It’s a Friday, so we expect to wrap up around 3pm.
Omeka S is a next-generation web publishing platform for institutions interested in connecting digital cultural heritage collections with other resources online. First released out of beta versions in November 2017, it has already enjoyed widespread adoption and community contributions.
If you haven’t yet explored it, please dive in to the latest release in our sandbox.
The workshop will be held on the Arlington, VA campus of George Mason University in Founders Hall. It is conveniently located a ten minute walk from the DC Metro Virginia Square-GMU station, and lodging is just a stop (or a healthy walk) away at the Ballston Holiday Inn.
Please register to attend. There is no fee to attend, but space is limited to about 70 participants. Along with the registration, we will ask about your interests and desired outcomes for the day for our planning. Participants might want to create an Omeka S installation to work from, but it is not necessary.
We will be posting a schedule and other details soon. It will reflect the initial feedback we receive from the registration form about what will be most useful to you. Many thanks for your interest and contributions.
Questions about the event should be directed to the Omeka Director of Developer Outreach, Patrick Murray-John, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
