Hydra in Dublin

Last week saw two very successful Hydra events in Dublin, Ireland.

The first event was the Hydra Europe Symposium held on 7/8 April. Some 35 people attended, primarily from the UK and Ireland, but with several delegates from mainland Europe too. The event provided a full introduction to Hydra, stressing how the technology and the community interact to provide a well rounded repository solution. Some very positive feedback has been received and we look forward to doing other similar events elsewhere in the future. The presentations from the event can be found on our Events, presentations and articles page on the wiki.

Following on from the symposium, running 8-11 April, was a Hydra Camp where an enthusiastic group of individuals got to grips with Hydra “under the hood”. The next Hydra Camp is 6-9 May in Minneapolis and there are still some places left (as at 19th April).

Thanks to our friends at Trinity College, Dublin for providing the facilities and support (and for guiding us to some excellent local hostelries…), and thanks to our speakers and tutors.
