As you know, THATCamp Canberra will run over three days — from Friday 31 October to Sunday 2 November. On the Friday there’ll be a series of introductory workshops to get you primed for the unconference that’ll run across Saturday and Sunday.
The schedule for the workshops is now online and you’ll see it’s an exciting and varied mix – everything from a crash course in regular expressions to a discussion of the poetics of online collections:
The morning sessions are shorter and will provide an overview of particular technologies, concepts or issues. In the afternoon we’ll get our hands dirty, trying out some tools and examples.
During the lunch break there’ll also be a collection visualisation showcase from the Digital Treasures Program at the University of Canberra.
Bring a laptop if you can, particularly for the afternoon sessions – although the ‘Wikipedia and Trove’ workshop will be held in a computer lab. Wifi will be available.
Places are limited and we’ll need to juggle the available rooms based on interest, so please sign up now! At the bottom of each session description you’ll see a ‘Sign up’ link – just click on this and submit your details to register your interest in that session. No need to sign up for the lunchtime showcase.
