COSA User Conference – extra day training this year!

The 2014 COSA User conference will take place in Melbourne (William Angliss Institute) from Tuesday 21st October to Friday 24th October 2014. This year the conference will comprise 2 days training (Tuesday-Wednesday) and 2 days conference sessions (Thursday-Friday). Staff can attend the training even if they do not attend the conference sessions, so it may be an opportunity for sites to send extra staff.

Some of the potential training topics currently being discussed with SirsiDynix include: Enterprise Development Workshop (1.5 days); Perl for Symphony API; Symphony Reports Bootcamp; Blue Cloud Admin/PAC; Blue Cloud Cataloguing; Blue Cloud eRC; Horizon System Admin (2 days); Symphony System Admin Essentials and Tips and Tricks.
