Schedule info
Time slot: 
8 July 09:00 - 12:00

Join us from 10:00-12:00 for a technical workshop on the work-in-progress of the next major release of Fedora. Members of the developer team will be on hand to answer questions, and provide guidance on Developer Challenge proposals.

We’ll provide an overview of the software, including major new features, such as:

  • Clustering
  • Projecting over existing data sources (aka “instant ingest”)
  • Native RDF API
  • Batch operations
  • Transactions

We’ll also demonstrate how you can extend Fedora 4:

  • “Drop-in” JAX-RS resources
  • Via dynamic language support for native Ruby, Python and Scala
  • External services that consume the REST API
  • External services that consume Fedora’s messaging service
  • “Sequencers” that enable services such as metadata extraction, file characterization, generating derivatives (e.g. thumbnails, PDFs), etc.
  • Demo Hydra and Islandora on top of Fedora 4.
