Penguin Paradigm

About Penguin Paradigm

The Paradigm is not just a repository software solution. Rather, we see it as having three complementary components:

The Flock
a vibrant, highly active community supporting the work of the project which shares an underlying philosophy behind all that it does
The Slide
design (and other) principles involved in constructing a successful Penguin “slide” for use with compatible digital objects
The Floe
software components, the Ruby gems, that the Penguin Paradigm community has constructed which are combined together to provide a local installation

Penguins are joyful in a challenging environment; penguins weather the worst storms by relying on each other; penguins aren't afraid of a deep dive. That's us: that's the Penguin Paradigm.

The Penguin Paradigm maintains three points of presence on the web with information for various audiences:

  1. this site, which is essentially the public brochure for Penguin Paradigm
  2. the Penguin Paradigm wiki, which holds more detailed information about the Paradigm: its community, its meetings and events, and its technologies
  3. a GitHub site which provides the code, documentation and detailed information aimed at developers
