Programming Languages: An Overview for Librarians

On Thursday, April 30, Joanna DiPasquale, Digital Initiatives Librarian at Vassar College, taught a class on the basics of coding and programming at Southeastern NY Library Resources Council. Rather than go into the details of language syntax and specifics, she taught students how to break down common library problems into coding-based solutions rather than using onerous workarounds.

DiPasquale repeatedly assured the students that good programming is a product of "practice, practice, practice," and showed how one can write "psedocode" to think through solutions.
