Doc-a-thon for better docs!

On 27, Feb 2017 | In Events of Interest | By Javier Otero Peña

Doc-a-thon
March 6th, 5:00-10:00 PM
Room 3317

The Digital Fellows, part of the Graduate Center Digital Initiatives at The Graduate Center, CUNY, will be hosting a Doc-a-thon to generate better docs!

When learning a new software tool, programming language or library, we all go straight to the tutorials and other documentation. As the first point of entry for almost everyone, documentation is an often overlooked but critical part of any software project, so we’re providing space and resources to contribute. Participants of all skill-levels are encouraged to join.

We’ll provide you with an introduction to the projects, a discussion of good documentation practices, and help setting up your development environment. You can work on your own personal project or help out on a participating project, such as DH Box, Omeka, Matplotlib, Pandas, and Clawpack.

The first day (Monday March 6) will be focused on tutorials and getting people started. We will then have support throughout the week at the GC Digital Lab on Room 7414, via our GC Digital Fellows office hours (Tuesday 2:00pm – 4:00pm) and the Python User’s Group (Wednesday 12:00pm – 2:00pm).

If you are interested in participating, please RSVP here.

For questions or accessibility accommodations, write us to gc.digitalfellows@gmail.com.
