Islandora Camp is going to Madrid at the end of May and we could not be more excited. The schedule is up, a logo contest is finishing up, and now we want to introduce you to the four instructors who will be leading workshops at camp:
Melissa Anez has been working with Islandora since 2012 and has been the Community and Project Manager of the Islandora Foundation since it was founded in 2013. She spends her time arranging Islandora events, doing what she can to keep the Islandora community ticking along, and writing about herself in the third person in blog posts. Melissa taught in the Admin Track at several previous camps.
Luis Martinez-Uribe is a data wrangler with experience in research data management and curation in scientific environments and cultural heritage organizations. Currently he is working as a Data Scientist within the Library of the Fundación Juan March (FJM) supporting knowledge insights requests from departments as well as integrating the large and heterogeneous corpus data of the FJM. Islandora “converted” since 2010!
Nick Ruest is the Digital Assets Librarian at York University. He oversees the development of data curation, asset management and preservation initiatives, along with creating and implementing systems that support the capture, description, delivery, and preservation of digital objects having significant content of enduring values. He is also active in the Islandora community, serving as the Release Manager, Project Director for the Islandora and Fedora 4 integration project, member of the Islandora Foundation's Roadmap Committee, and contributes code to the project.
Alan Stanley is one of the original Islandora programmers, starting at the UPEI Robertson Library when the project was still in its infancy. He has since moved to discoverygarden. He still codes when he can, but he's also involved in business development and training these days. He has a special interest in Digital Humanities.
