Welcome to Greensburg, Digital Mitfordians! We’ve updated our site’s page of training materials for our coding school and editors’ workshops. We’re excited to be orienting over 30 people to the TEI and related coding methods this week!
Followers of our project should bookmark our new site address: http://digitalmitford.org ! We are transitioning our project to new server space hosted by the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), and the Digital Mitford project has joined the PSC’s Data Exacell program, a pilot project that deploys supercomputing equipment and processing power to support data analysis projects across disciplines […]
