Inspired by the success of last year’s THATCamp@Penn, along with the great energy from the newly-formed PhillyDH group, a group of folks doing DH* work decided to get together to plan an event that will bring together interested parties from across the Delaware Valley (and beyond – we have registrants from as far away as Buffalo, NY!). The day is going to be jam-packed with both formal and informal learning opportunities. It will also be one of the first big events in the brand new Special Collections Center on the sixth floor of Van Pelt, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to show off our new space.
All of the details are on the event website, but some of the highlights of the day include:
- workshops, including some taught by WIC staff on WordPress, Social Media and Free Image/Photo Editing Tools
- unconference sessions that attendees will get to vote into existence on the day of the event
- our keynote speaker Michael Edson, who is Director of Web and New Media Strategy at the Smithsonian Institution
- a “lightning round” featuring two-minute talks on exciting projects
Sign up NOW to reserve your spot, and join us on the sixth floor on June 4th!
