end/line Week 3 — Diary and Biography

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 The last week for me has been about two things: provisioning the PostgreSQL database and making strides towards implementing the EJS back-end infrastructure that Greg will need for the front-end. For those that don’t know, EJS is a templating language built on top of JavaScript. It’s very simple to use and works similarly to how PHP handles templating and dynamic rendering.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 I also provisioned the database on Heroku, wrote the build queries, and set up the environment to connect to it on Heroku and the development environment. Everything tests out perfectly so far. I’m at the point now where I can start writing queries and binding them to REST (GET/POST) requests.

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at cuny.is/dps17.
