Fall 2017 Workshops

dSHARP offers a series of workshops through the University Libraries. Our Fall 2017 workshops will be 
Sept: Nuts and Bolts of Project Management
Whether you’re working by yourself or part of a larger team, managing an academic project can take a lot of time and effort, especially when that project involves digital scholarship.  This workshop will introduce you to the basics of formal project management including requirements and scoping projects, risk assessment and data management, team communications, managing time and budgets, reviews and exit criteria, and project preservation.
Oct: Network Analysis for Humanists
Networks are simple formal representations for how the world intermingles with itself. The humanities can make good use of this formalization to study anything from social interactions, to similarities between literary genres, to the trade routes between ancient cities. This workshop will cover the conceptual foundations of network analysis, and the steps to prepare data for, analyze, and visualize humanities networks. Participants will learn on Google Sheets, Palladio, and potentially Gephi.

Nov: Introduction to Basic Web Design

 
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the the standard markup language used to create web pages and web-based applications. This workshop will cover the basics of creating web pages and simple websites using HTML syntax to structure pages, format content, add lists, tables, links, images, and media, and style their presentation using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). This workshop will also include an overview of client-server interaction, HTTP, and touch on JavaScript for interactivity.
