Where Can Developers Get Training?

The Community offers multi-day public Samvera Camps at least once a year in Europe and North America. Additional single and half-day workshops are frequently offered in conjunction with other major Library and Library Technology Conferences. Because of the pandemic, our current training plans are on hold and we are working to replace them with Developers Congresses and virtual training opportunities. If you are looking for training please contact the Samvera Community Manager, to be connected to resources.
