What is Samvera Connect?

Samvera Connect (hashtag #samvera2018) is a chance for Samvera community to gather in one place at one time, with an emphasis on synchronizing efforts, technical development, plans, and community links. The meeting program is aimed at existing users, managers and developers and at new folks who may be just "kicking the tires" on Samvera and who want to know more. Samvera advertises this yearly conference with the slogan "as a Samvera Partner or user, if you can only make it to one Samvera meeting this academic year,  this is the one to attend! "

¿Qué es Samvera Connect?

Samvera Connect (#samvera2018 en Twitter) es una oportunidad para todos aquellos que participan en el Proyecto Samvera de reunirse y sincronizar nuestros planes de desarrollo y trabajo técnico, asi como establecer enlaces con el resto de la comunidad.

La agenda durante esta reunión incluye temas de interés tanto para instituciones que ya usan Samvera y están familiarizados con la tecnología, como para aquellos que apenas lo están evaluando y desean conocer más acerca del proyecto, la gente que lo usa, y los programadores involucrados en su desarrollo. Samvera patrocina esta conferencia anual con el eslogan "no importa si eres un usuario nuevo o alguien que ya contribuye al Proyecto Samvera , si so solo vas atender una conferencia este año   ¡Samvera Connect es la que debes atender!  "
