I made it to Texas about three hours late for the start of class but all is well.
The topic: Open Source Digital Library Tools!
We started with some lecture, software installation and basic command line practice. I am using my Mac for this class — running OS 10.3.7 — and guess what : I have all the tools built in to my system. I open the terminal mode and it is there! I was tickled.
This semester we will code in Python, discuss issues in Open Source software and write a paper about an open source topic.
It’s good to be back with the group! More later.
