The “Research Software Engineering for Digital Humanities” workshop, held at King’s Digital Lab (KDL) in July 2019, is now available as a ‘captured event’ on DARIAH-Campus. The four-day event, which ran as part of the MaDiH (Mapping Digital Heritage in Jordan) project, focused on best practices in research software engineering adopted by KDL, from project idea to archiving and sustainability.
DARIAH-Campus offers a means to ‘capture’ training events such as workshops and webinars in a way that has previously not been available. By presenting not only presentation slides, but also videos of speakers, PDFs of the programme and any handouts and any images from the event, it aims to present as much information as possible that enables any future users to get a good sense of what was discussed at the event.
The “Research Software Engineering for Digital Humanities” workshop will be of interest to academics wishing to start a software-intensive research project with an established DH team; to software developers, project managers, analysts and designers wishing to join or set up a DH team; and to students interested in workflows and processes adopted in established Research Software Engineering labs.
King’s Digital Lab is more than a group of software developers and designers working in the field of Digital Humanities; it is a team of Research Software Engineers (RSEs) with decades of collective experience working with researchers from a variety of disciplines to achieve their goals. KDL develops research solutions iteratively, using a range of tools and processes that can handle common as well as innovative challenges of digital research in the humanities and social sciences. The team builds resources designed to answer questions, store content, publish results, and push the boundaries of computationally-intensive research, while working closely with project partners from higher education institutions and the GLAM sector (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) to understand their intellectual focus as well as their technical requirements.
