Dear DSpace community,
The schedule is now posted for the upcoming JASIG open source software
conference which will feature DSpace 1.5 training, presentations and
panels. There are technical tracks as well as deployment tracks that
cover not only DSpace, but open source software programming and
deployment in general. I think this is really going to be a great
conference and a chance to network with other java developers and
implementors of open source solutions in higher ed. Software projects
represented are DSpace, Sakai, UPortal, CAS, Kuali, Internet2 and
