The Paideia Institute is thrilled to announce an additional special course offering, Coding for Classicists, to its spring semester of Telepaideia, our series of online courses. Paul Hudson, inventor of the well-known Latin app, "SPQR," will be the course instructor.
This unique course is designed to bring together two very different disciplines in one place, with the goal of helping you get a working confidence with coding in as short a time as possible. As a classicist, you will already be familiar with both close reading of texts and the need to correlate data across many sources, but without the aid of computers it's difficult to do both well. In this course you'll be taught simple techniques for reading, parsing, analyzing, and filtering large amounts of classical text using code, then slowly expanding your skills to add a user interface. No coding knowledge is required to begin -- you'll be taught everything you need.
Classes begin on March 19th, and take place on Sundays at 3 pm EST.
