Digital Mitford Coding School, May 20-24, 2019
For more information and how to apply, please visit http://bit.ly/DigMitCoding-2019
The Coding School is an unusual learning opportunity because it is part of an annual face-to-face summit for the Digital Mitford editing team to brush up on project methods and make major decisions (see http://digitalmitford.org ). Participants thus have a window into ongoing project operations, and each year we are learning something new to share. Join us if you want to learn text encoding methods and their applications in the Digital Humanities–in the unusual context of an active digital archive project. We welcome past coding school participants and new coders alike. Some participants in the coding school with interests in women's writing in "the long 18th- and 19th-centuries" apply to join our editing team. Others find it useful for gaining perspective on launching and developing their own investigative projects.
This year we're excited to feature a special guest instructor, Prof. Jeffrey C. Witt, developer of the Scholastic Commentaries and Texts Archive who will teach us how to work with the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) to connect our TEI manuscript encoding with archival images in the semantic web of linked data. We are planning some significant site upgrades to support IIIF ahead of the Coding School to help use our project data as a teaching model.
