endline week 8(?)

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 We’re slowly entering the final stretch and even though it’s nerve-wracking, it’s great to see how far we’ve come with developing this thing. We got past our beta test, had a couple of meetings with consultants and now are figuring out what’s left to develop between me and Brian for the next week or two before our deadline arrives.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 The most recent changes right before the beta test included first, a 404 page and 500 page. For these I went with a more minimalist approach and a witty pun to at least entertain users if they happen upon them. If you want to see them, go to http://www.endlineproject.org/404 or /500 depending on which you’d like to see. After that was a separate page for user profiles (to happen upon other user profiles), a page for individual encodings, and a couple of aesthetic changes. We also cleaned up the validation notification and some of the error messages.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 One of the main things I had a slight issue with was cleaning up my code and conforming it to a certain standard. I kept two spaces in mind as per BH’s suggestion but weirdly enough after I changed all 40+ files and made the commit to the repository, the code changed back to the four-space default. Obviously, this isn’t the most pressing thing, but I’m still going to consider it.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 The goal now is to take what we learned from the beta test, keep clicking away and refine the prototype we’ve created at this point. I need to go in and clean up a few more errors, some item placements, and some copy. After that is just the grant proposal that we need to put together to also hopefully get this thing funded. It would be great to continue working on this in the future.

  • 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.
