end/line — Week 12 Journal

Today’s the final day. I’ve been putting the finishing touches on things and figuring out exactly what I’m going to say at the presentation tonight. I still want to go through the code and put in some comments to make parsing it easier in the future, but there’s still time for that. Along with some […]

end/line: the last weeks

The choice to separate community management and technical developement of end/line has been very useful: in this way, these two aspects – both fundamental – worked in parallel, reaching their goals. The technical developement team did an excellent job in the last weeks: both Brian and Greg contributed to build an app that could now […]

end/line Weekly Diary: 14 May

Currently, I’m focused on preparing everything for our presentation on Wednesday. This past week, I built out a Google Slides template that incorporates our visual identity—it uses our color scheme, typography, and logo—and scaffolds the presentation by discussing its humanistic origins, providing a demo, and explaining the process of technology decisions and community building that […]

end/line Group Post: 14 May

Welp, next Wednesday is it. We’re getting excited to present our work to a larger audience, but we still have some last-minute items to address. Presentation. This week’s in-class rehearsal went slightly better than the previous week’s. We have a well-defined deck that incorporates our visual identity (color scheme, typography, and logo) and clearly delineates […]

With just over one week until our presentation, we’ve had to prioritize our work and trim our wishlist to have the best possible product. See below for a rundown of where everything stands. Development. We finally have our SSL certificate and our upgraded Heroku hosting configured—thanks Lisa and the Graduate Center! This small, but necessary, […]

end/line — Week 10 Journal

Greg mostly covered what I’ve been working on in the last week. My main goal has been getting the inner workings of the site up and running. Most of it is tedious work at this point, to be honest. Do you ever think about how websites implement resetting passwords and sending account verification emails? It’s […]

end/line week 10

We are approaching to the end of the semester, so – as it is logical – we are starting to think about the requirements we have to complete for the class. This class, being a kind of unicum, will allow us – for this semester – not only to work together for all the semester, […]

ZUC In Review

The Zine Union Catalog has been coming along relatively well. However, the Spring break caused some sluggish progress in development because co-working in person became difficult. The reason this caused issues is because my work relied heavily on cooperative work with Lauren on the creation of maps, data imports, and other metadata-specific objectives. Once the […]

end/line: week 9

Spring Break was necessary to put together our thoughts about end/line development and to better define the technical features and the graphical aspect of our app. Indeed, on April 20th we hosted our first beta test, so it was necessary to set up a beta version of end/line that works at its best. The test was […]

end/line — Week 6 Journal

This week saw the website finally starting to come together. Most of what came before was just Greg building the front-end skeletons and EJS views, but now the real meat of the project is being implemented. It ended up going pretty well. I didn’t have any issues with the coding or anything, and things worked […]

  • 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.
