Digital Projects for Arts and Culture Webinar
Wednesday, November 16, 3-4 PM ET
Are you getting started with a website redesign, mobile app, or new interactive exhibit? Or are you hoping to start a digital project in the future? Join Interactive Mechanics’ Creative Lead Mike Tedeschi to increase your understanding of digital projects from concept to completion. In this digital primer, you’ll learn how to define key elements of your project, conduct relevant research, draft a request for proposals, select a vendor, and maintain your project once it’s built. We’ll also discuss common project types and key terminology, so you can feel confident talking to partners, funders, external stakeholders, and your team.
Interactive Mechanics is a digital design firm that partners with cultural and educational organizations on design, development, user experience, and strategy. We’ve learned a lot from our client projects, and we love sharing information about our process, tools, tips and tricks.
Molly Des Jardin is convening a study group at the University of Pennsylvania library dedicated to learning algorithms in programming. The group is using a really accessible text with some exercises at the end of each chapter. It will be starting by discussing and doing exercises from the first chapter on Wednesday, July 15. The plan, since everyone in the group has some Python experience, is to work on implementing the solutions in Python to give a concrete example of how it would work in practice.
The group meets every Wednesday from 1:30-3 pm in 623 Van Pelt (Vitale II). We are quite small right now and welcome everyone. Some basic programming experience is recommended but not required to understand the material in theory.
If you are interested in participating and wish to get copies of the material, contact Molly at the Penn Library.
