Coding for Classicists

Course Description: 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.
Level: This course is intended for those who know at least the basics of Latin grammar.
Textbook: Instructor will provide materials. 
Schedule: Section 1: Sundays at 3pm EST (FULL). Section 2: Sundays at 4:20pm EST. NB: This course begins on March 19th.
