Hands-on workshops for researchers and students!

1st and 2nd of November 2018

Introducing Research Practices and Tools for Digital Humanities.

Is technology going fast for you, would you like to be able to use a tool and visualise your research or manage your meta-data?

Join us

NTNU UB extends an invitation to scholars to join us in a Hands-on workshop 1.11.2018 13.30-15.30 with A.Rockenberger from the National Library of Norway

Writing And Publishing On The Web Together Using Github : a workshop on GitHub as a source of software, scripts, and programs. The workshop will concentrate on the various aspects as such:

*   GitHub can also be used to work on text documents?

*   GitHub enables collaboration on documents and software entirely through the web interface?

*   you can create a simple webpage with a few clicks through GitHub?

*   you don’t need any knowledge of the command-line version control tool ‘git’ to do all this?

This course will teach you how to do all these things, and more. The seminar is aimed at graduate students, researchers and librarians, and tailored towards those with very little to no experience in the subjects taught. Experience with git or GitHub or similar services is not necessary. Time permitting, at the end of the workshop those interested can learn how to do the same operations using command line ‘git’.

Participants: max. 15

Requirements: Bring your own laptop
