The Digital Project Working Groups are part of a new program designed to bring together and support communities of CUNY students, faculty, and staff who are interested in or working on similar projects. Our goal is to create collaborative communities of Digital Fellows, CUNY graduate students, and faculty to meet regularly and to share their areas of interest. The Working Groups provide a sustained, supportive environment to learn new skills, share old skills, and collaborate with both the Digital Fellows and the CUNY digital community.
The following Working Groups are currently planned:
- Python Learners Working Group: This working group is designed to bring together people who use the Python programming language and who would like to improve their coding skills, explore using different Python libraries and tools, and share skills around using Python for data analysis.
- Text Analysis Working Group: This working group is designed to bring together people who would like to focus on tools and techniques that can be used to analyze text, and provides space for more theoretical discussions on how terms surrounding text analysis vary depending on one’s field of research.
- GIS Working Group: This working group is designed to bring together people of all levels who are interested in mapping using GIS software. This will be a space to collaborate and learn from each other in order to represent and interpret data using mapping and GIS tools. Expertise on different open-source or proprietary platforms is welcome.
The Digital Projects Working Groups are open to all CUNY graduate students and faculty who are interested in attending! All Working Groups follow the same operating style and format, ensuring that the participants who attend each working group have an opportunity to voice things they would like to learn, to discuss, or to teach in that particular session. Additional Working Groups will be added as different interest groups emerge.
