Introduction to Minimal Computing
February 8, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST| Free
In this workshop we will introduce you to minimal computing concepts in general, and Jekyll and GitHub Pages in particular. Given our political & economic vulnerabilities, and the imminence of the anthropocene, several scholars/technologists have begun to design different workflows and tech for producing several genres of digital humanities that seek the essentials in a time of precarity, offering tentative answers to the question “What do we really need?” In this workshop, I will introduce you to the concepts with some hands on exercises. At the end of the workshop you will be exposed to the Alpha version of Jekyll Wax—a workflow and set of tools for static minimal exhibitions.
