Trinity College Dublin and the Digital Repository of Ireland host HydraCamp 2013

Trinity College Dublin, as part of the Digital Repository of Ireland, will be hosting HydraCamp 2013, on April 8th -12th, 2013.  The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is the national digital repository for the humanities and social sciences and uses the Hydra framework. This will be a week-long training course aimed at developers who are building, or are interested in building, repositories for preservation and archiving. This training course will be delivered by Data Curation Experts.

DRI and TCD are bringing HydraCamp to Europe to provide developers and engineers with an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the Hydra framework. Participants will be introduced to elements of agile development processes, Ruby on Rails and the Hydra stack. Developers planning to use Fedora for archiving and preservation needs will benefit from the comprehensive Hydra training provided by the camp.

Hydra is a repository solution that is being used by institutions on both sides of the North Atlantic to provide access to their digital content.  Hydra provides a versatile and feature-rich environment for end-users and repository administrators alike. Hydra is a community, a technical framework and an open source software solution.

Information about the camp will be released regularly on the camp’s website at:
