Join us on Wednesday, September 21st, 2016 at 11:00AM EDT / 1500GMT for a webinar on how to engage with the FOLIO code. The presentation portion will cover two main topics: context around how the FOLIO platform provides integration points for module development and what that means for developing modules in FOLIO and a look at how the platform pieces come together in the user interface to provide functionality to the end user. The presenters will be showing some code and data structures as well as the current user experience prototype.
A confirmation email will contain access information for the event.
A recording of this Forum will be made available on the OLE website.
