Using jQuery Plugins to Make Omeka Do MoreThis workshop will cover the basic steps of installing a jQuery plugin into an Omeka theme, using Omeka PHP functions to dynamically pull your content and metadata into the plugins, and show some examples of these plugins live in action on an Omeka site. The presentation is geared toward users who have a basic understanding of HTML and are able to access and edit files on their website server.Adrienne Serra3080 Torgersen

HTML and CSS for BeginnersA gentle introduction to the basics of web design, focusing on HTML and CSS. We will learn how the various components of a website work together, then we will modify preexisting templates to develop a simple site that could be used to showcase a digital humanities project. No previous experience is expected; in fact, those who already know how to build websites will likely be bored by this workshop.Quinn Warnick@warnick1120 Torgersen

Event Crawling, Archiving, and ExploringThis workshop will cover using a Hadoop cluster for big data, including collecting tweets and webpages about important world events, collaborating with Internet Archive, and information retrieval support for large corpora of tweets and many terabytes of webpages (with clustering, classification, and other machine learning).
