Scalar Webinars: Announcing Our Fall Schedule
To follow up on our recent Beta release, the Scalar development team will be offering a series of free online webinars this Fall.
Our “Introduction to Scalar” webinars will cover basic features of the platform: a review of existing Scalar books and a hands-on introduction to paths, tags, annotations and importing media. Our “Intermediate Scalar” webinars will delve into more advanced topics including the effective use of visualizations, annotating with media and a primer on customizing appearances in Scalar. Finally, one advanced webinar will cover Scalar’s RDF-based API as well as Scalar’s theme engine for programmers who wish to utilize the platform’s internal components when creating interfaces.
Our Fall schedule will include five dates:
- Introduction to Scalar – September 26, 10am-12pm (PST)
- Intermediate Scalar – October 17, 10am-12pm (PST)
- Introduction to Scalar – November 14, 4pm-6pm (PST)
- Advanced Scalar/API – November 21, 10am-12pm (PST)
- Intermediate Scalar – December 12, 4pm-6pm (PST)
