Here is the merry band of Dickinson students who came back to campus a week early to participate in the second annual Digital Boot Camp.
Led by Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow Patrick Belk, the eleven students completed online tutorials at home the week of January 5, and convened on campus for further instruction and to work on their own projects. Other instructors included Michael D’Aprix, Daniel Plehkov, Leah Orr, and Don Sailer. Topics included ArcGIS, Drupal, XML, and discussions of metadata and other DH principles (full schedule here). Most of the projects they are working on represent collaborations with faculty, departments, or student organizations on campus.
Make sure to stop by the digital poster session, at which the students will show off what they have accomplished in this intense period of work and discovery.
