Information Jigs

Process and flow is only half of our tactical tool kit. A jig is a type of custom-made tool or device that is used to control the location and/or motion of parts or other tools. A jig's purpose is to provide repeatability, accuracy, and interchangeability. The other half of our computational thinking arsenal is creative ways to structure information so that it is easier to operate on. In this workshop and the next we will meet a whole menagerie of useful "data structures." We will see that having your information in the right form is well over half the battle. Maybe big data? digital humanities? Names, nomenclature. Structures. Classes. Info hiding. Encapsulation.
