Thursday Feb. 20
Building Code Literacy: Using Jupyter Notebook as a DH Sandbox, Digital Humanities Workshop Series
1 to 2:30 p.m.
Perry-Castañeda Library

Location: PCL Learning Lab 2

Coding can often be intimidating for arts and humanities folks. To alleviate that, this workshop will introduce you to Jupyter Notebook, an open source application that facilitates the writing and sharing of live code through manageable parts. Jupyter Notebook helps users break out of memorizing procedures and focus on developing code literacy, or the understanding of syntax, conventions and narrative surrounding the code. The application also serves as a great environment to play around with writing code in a contained “sandbox” environment. In this workshop, we will go over what Jupyter Notebooks are and how they work, read, execute and write Python code in a notebook and review applications of Jupyter Notebooks in digital humanities work. 

Instructor: Adriana Cásarez
