The Islandora community is comprised of implementers, developers, service companies, and users working as transparently as possible toward better documentation and a better, always open-source, code base. We operate under a Code of Conduct. Membership formalizes involvement in the community and provides financial support for the project. Users get together across many channels, including:
Code of Conduct
The Islandora Community operates under a Code of Conduct which guides our interactions whether via text, voice, or face-to-face, and includes a reporting process for anyone who feels that they have been a part of an interaction that violates these guidelines.
We hold regular Islandora 8 Tech Calls and Islandora 8 User Calls, and monthly Islandora 7 Committers Calls. Developers, testers, and other interested parties come together to review tickets, issues, and development goals for Islandora.
The Islandora Foundation has four important Governance Committees that help to strategically shape and support the growth of our community.
Islandora Interest Groups are gatherings of Islandora community members who come together around a particular topic relevant to the Islandora ecosystem. The purpose of the interest group is to provide a forum for information exchange, mentorship and development within a limited area of interest and to report findings, submit code, documentation, recommendations as appropriate to the Islandora Coordinating Committee on matters of wider interest relating to the area of expertise.
