The paper The Giles Ecosystem – Storage, Text Extraction, and OCR of Documents was published in the Journal of Open Research Software on September 28, 2017 (check it out here). The paper describes the Giles Ecosystem developed by the Digital Innovation Group.
From September 7 to 8, 2017, the second Research Software Engineer conference was held in Manchester, UK. Julia Damerow attended the conference and presented a poster. The two days were packed with interesting talks about topics such as software reusability, container infrastructures, or open source projects.
On 7 August 2017, the Digital Innovation Group together with the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science hosted a pre-conference workshop at the Digital Humanities Conference 2017 in Montréal. The workshop called “Let’s Develop an Infrastructure for Historical Research Tools” focused on collaboration and integration of digital humanities software and tools.
The Digital Innovation Group (DigInG) hosted a 4-day workshop at ASU. The workshop covered an introduction to Spring and Kafka, working with GitHub, some lectures on best practices and software development, and a lot of coding. Attendees received a highly interactive, hands-on development experience using Java and the Spring Framework.
Join us for the workshop “Let’s Develop an Infrastructure for Historical Research Tools” at the Digital Humanities Conference 2017! We would like to gather developers and programming-literate scholars to share their tool-building experiences and to present our first practical steps to create a system integrating multiple tools to work with historical documents from scan to analysis.
Apply by July 1st, 2017!
DigInG has grown! As of June, 2016, the Digital Innovation Group at ASU has merged with software development activities within Department I of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, Germany to form an efficient and agile software development and innovation unit for computational history of knowledge.
