Over the course of the last few months, those of us in the development team have been hard at work writing the code to make the Ivanhoe game function. I thought I’d give a (very) brief look into our development workflow. 1.) Each week, sometimes several times a week, check Github for issues assigned to…. More.
Recently, Bethany shared a twitter conversation about why “Praxis Program Team” has been listed among the authors of publications and presentations on Prism. As a member of the 2013-14 Praxis cohort, I can attest to the fact that we haven’t yet given as much thought to the question of publication and presentation as previous years…. More.
In the past week, Scott and I have been chipping away at the various issues Stephanie has uncovered in her testing of proto-Ivanhoe. There are a LOT of issues, and there are still a handful of core features we have left to build by our April 1 deadline. Specifically, we need to work through some…. More.
So last week Francesca and I each pitched design for our informational website. While the bulk of our pitches focused on the look of the website, I formulated my website design (ps, as this was just a mock up it isn’t cross browser tested, sorry) to be as transferable as possible (or desired). Had we gone…. More.
So this is a git network graph. Specifically, it is the network graph for Ivanhoe from c. 20 February to 1 March. The blue line is our Develop branch and the various branches are features, projects, etc. The first little pink dot is my first branch. While programming development is far from complete, I forked….

Eight years ago, I sat staring at my Latin prose composition homework. The assignment was to translate a few sentences and a couple of short, not-particularly-complex paragraphs from English into Latin. In that precise moment, however, it would have been equally effective to ask me to go find and slay a fire-breathing dragon, since the…. More.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working hard on building my own website. I actually began this work last summer, in the midst of a code camp for humanities graduate students being run at U.Va. with the great help of Scholars’ Lab staff. There, I had gotten an intro to git, found out…. More.
For the first time in all my years as a graduate student, I decided to take some of Christmas break as an actual break from school work. So, for the first two weeks of break, I refused to read school related emails, read mostly neuroscience instead of theology or philosophy, only thought about my dissertation…. More.
Just before we departed for the break, Stephanie and I met with Jeremy to talk over some of our wireframes for Ivanhoe. (Stephanie discussed our wireframing process in her post.) “Right,” Jeremy told us. “You’re going to want to clone the files that I’ve already created and start from there.” We blinked at him. “Cloning?”….

It has been over a month (!) since my last post, but the long delay is certainly not due to lack of activity in the Praxis-Ivanhoe world. Our PM, Stephanie, has written a great post summing up the progress we’ve made as a group towards defining and building Ivanhoe. I’d like to underscore her point…. More.
