Incorporating #minicomp best practices into DH

Digital Humanities projects are fantastic and quite versatile but they are often severely limited due to being inaccessible and/or from requiring far too much computing power. I would like all of to take time to consider the GO::DH minimal computing (#minicomp) guidelines and how they can be implemented and integrated into existing and future digital humanities projects along with the guidelines of the #a11y project. Ensuring that our digital humanities projects and assignments are accessible to all is to me a critical aspect of digital humanities. Along with GO::DH #minicomp and #a11y project if there is time I think it would be great to discuss ways to begin DH projects with the end in mind and how to keep them online after the project has concluded or the researcher(s) have moved institutions and/or platforms.

 

PS If anyone would like to practice/play making a minicomp site that would also be wonderful.
