=== Workshop Descriptions ===
==== Web/Usability Testing on a budget! ====
With Cynthia Ng
If you take care of even a small part of the website, you want to have some kind of feedback from your users. However, you're just one person, and you have a budget of $100. What do you do? This session will give you some hands on practice using a few methods to help you do some usability testing on a low budget.
Please bring a laptop, multiple sheets of paper, and at least one pen.
Cynthia Ng is currently on contract as an Accessibility Librarian at the Centre for Accessible Post-secondary Education Resources BC (CAPER-BC) housed at Langara College. She takes a holistic approach with focus on users to improve library websites. She also frequently volunteers as a mentor at technology events.
==== Introduction to Designing for the Web Today: HTML5, CSS3, and JQuery ====
With Schuyler Lindberg
==== Intro to Python ====
With Alex Garnett
Alex Garnett works on Data Curation and Digital Preservation at SFU Library. Most of his coding is self-taught, which is a good thing when it isn't a bad thing. He doesn't always like it when he hears people start evangelizing about how everyone should learn to code, but he's caught himself talking about how some people really ought to learn really useful and fun things like string functions on occasion. He has strong feelings and a bad back.
==== Intro to Archivematica ====
With Mark Jordan
Mark Jordan is Head of Library Systems at Simon Fraser University. His current obsession is automating digital preservation processes but he is also interested in a lot of other things.
