Onboarding Community Developers

Event: Onboarding Community FOLIO Developers
Time: Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at
11:00AM EST / 1600 GMT

In this recording, Matt Connolly from Cornell University follows a path to installing FOLIO components that is now deprecated and the new process is much simpler.  We recommend new developers follow the FOLIO Developers Curriculum if they intend to see how all of the pieces fit together and start developing new modules.  Alternatively, developers can use the pre-built Vagrant boxes to see the current state of FOLIO development without needing to build all of the individual components.

Recording Available Here (Note: Session already in progress when recording starts)
