koha-US Conference: Day 3, Bug-a-Palooza!

Day 3 of the koha-US Online Together conference (a.k.a. Bug-a-Palooza) starts Thursday, September 24th at 8:00 AM PDT / 11:00 AM ET / 3:00 PM UTC.

Today is a little different in that we’re all gathering together in a Zoom room to talk bugs, sandboxes, and all things Koha. If you registered for the event, you should already have the Zoom link.

The day begins with a sandbox demo by Lisette, then is loosely structured by topic based on our special interest groups. You can find the rundown for today here: http://koha-us.org/learn/conferences/onlinetogether2020#ot_day3

If you haven’t yet registered and would like access to the Zoom room, the form is still active here http://bit.ly/koha-us2020c_reg, though there will likely be a delay between when you register and when the link is sent.
