Workshop: The digital edition as a computational pipeline

March 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Scholarly Innovation Lab, Charles E. Young Research Library + Google Map

A computational pipeline is a way of modeling the flow of information through a sequence of programs or operations, so that the output of each step becomes the input to the next. The decomposition of complex operations into discrete individual steps, each of which does only one thing, and none of which depends on knowing how the others operate, supports distributed, modular development; enhances maintenance and sustainability; and enables reusability. In this workshop we will examine how the concept of computational pipelines can be extended to model the planning, development, and deployment of digital textual editions. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to discuss their own digital edition plans and projects.
