  3. Additions/changes to agenda

  4. Updates
    1. Sessionizer 
      1. Status check - at
    2. Rooming
      1. After internal debate, our events office didn't want us to book Guastivino if we could avoid it. This is due to a desire to have a "common open space" and due to the acustics apparently not being that great in that room. So can set up something for it but they would rather us just use the front of Rabb for some of these sessions.
      2. Room assignments added to the orange blocks above each session in a duplicate copy of Wed / Thurs schedule:
      3. Don't see the workshops spreadsheet so those rooms are:
        1. McKim Lower Level A: Testing with RSpec and Hydra, Applied Linked Data, Dive Into GeoConcerns
        2. McKim Lower Level B: Technical on-boarding, In-depth PCDM
        3. Rabb Lecture Hall: Data modeling 101, Touring the design patterns in Hydra
        4. Orientation Room: Docker and Vagrant, Hands-on Ansible for Hydra
