We’ve uploaded presentations/slides/notes for every event from Tech Day on the NEKLS blog, as of this morning. Check it out. Watch a few of Dr. Wesch’s videos. I even posted my ‘raw’ notes for the kete presentation I gave. Dan wrote a nice wrap-up post, too. Can you tell he had fun playing with the featured image? I did not live-blog the keynote. I was too busy listening. I did blog Janet’s podcasting session and Brenda’s Google Fiber discussion.
Evaluations of Tech Day have been overwhelmingly positive and affirming. Dr. Wesch was a huge hit and the breakout sessions were well-received, too. Teri worked with catering to get a second lunch line set up, so even that part of the day got good reviews! (Usually we have a slew of food complaints, but not this year!) Thanks to Brenda for playing emcee for the day, so I could just stand there and try not to slouch 😉
This week, we also had an unexpected upgrade to Koha 3.5.006 (or whatever master is at now)…and I scrambled today to put together an overview. One our librarians called in a panic about the missing “clear screen” button…which had been replaced by Mr. Owen Leonard with a much nicer “X” button box thingy. Good work, Owen. Mickey and I got to the bottom of it and hopefully, future upgrades won’t catch us by surprise! Proud to say that three of the bug fixes/new features came straight from Liz and Heather reviewing and improving the Cataloging module. I’m quite lucky to work with such a smart team.
