Over my many years in IT and academia, I have developed a huge variety of online research projects, from websites to repositories, e-books to cutting edge data visualisations. In particular, I offer:
Traditional media, such as books, can all be augmented through technology and I can develop new versions of old texts that demonstrate the possibilities afforded. My work on Saint Patrick's Confessio (http://www.confessio.ie) demonstrates some of the possibilities.
Consultancy and Development
If you have an idea and need an experienced developer to realise your vision, I can advise on the appropriate technologies and/or use them to achieve your goals.
Websites and Software as a Service
As well as the Digital Humanities, I am very comfortable in traditional web development. I am an experienced web developer having worked over 12 years at Dublin City University as Web Development Specialist, and have particular strengths in Drupal development.
A wide variety of online content is currently available in the Public Domain. I have developed software that allows me to harvest and generate e-books dynamically based on these resources. However, given specific content I can create new digital publications effectively and economically.
Linked Open Data
Linked Open Data is a new technology that allows developers to use online resources effectively as databases. I can make LOD work to augment a transform traditional websites and digital editions.
Coming from over twelve years online development at Dublin City University, and three years as DHO Project Manager (IT) with the Digital Humanities Observatory, I have a vast range of IT and academic skills. At DCU, I lectured on several programmes, and have subsequently presented several workshops on a range of subjects. I offer workshops and training on a multitude of topics, including:
- Web development;
- Digital encoding and metadata standards;
- Digital curation and digitisation;
- Data Visualisation and Mapping;
- XML, TEI and Data formats.
