All the best, Francesco ----- Building a Humanities information system for your project without coding (Heurist workshop) Dr Ian Johnson Wed 15th Jan, 10am - 4pm, Rm 323 Brennan Heurist is a flexible Humanities information system developed at and run as a free service at the University of Sydney. It allows researchers to develop and manage rich, heterogeneous databases and accompanying websites without dependence on technical support. It is accessed through a web browser, requiring no installation and providing medium to long-term maintenance (some databases already date back 15 years) through shared infrastructure. This will be a freeform drop-in session to which new users can bring information about their project with the aim of creating a 'starter' database and website which they can develop further as their needs and skills evolve. Existing users are welcome to bring specific questions or to learn new skills. No prior knowledge, programming skills or Heurist experience required. The first hour will provide some initial orientation for new users, but you are welcome to come at any time. Some existing Heurist projects at the University includeDigitalHarlem.org (http://DigitalHarlem.org),ExpertNation.org (https://ExpertNation.org),BaliPaintings.org (http://BaliPaintings.org),Beyond1914.sydney.edu.au (https://Beyond1914.sydney.edu.au).
