KohaCon 2010 now underway

KohaCon10,  marking the 10th anniversary of the Koha Library Management System, kicked off today in Wellington (give or take a pretty big time difference). There will be 3 days of conference followed by a three-day developer hackfest. They’ve also planned a trip to Levin in the Horowhenua, birthplace of Koha.  All in all, it runs from 25 October to 1 November.

If you weren’t lucky enough to be in New Zealand for the conference, you can keep up with it via the live channel – #KohaCon10. Nicole Engard has already blogged some of the presentations.

Coinciding with this nicely is the release of Koha 3.2.0, the latest major release of the Koha software. You can read all about the latest features and enhancements on the announcement page.
