Session Title

Accio Data: Managing collaborative projects with free tools

Description

What happens when your collaboration is more complicated than a shared document? Using a project named Alternity (a Harry Potter collaborative transformative work) as our case study, we will explore free and open tools to help answer that question, including Google Docs, databases, timelines, family trees, and more. We’ll also cover best practices for group projects, managing data over multiple years, and how not to lose that one piece of information everybody keeps dropping behind the couch.
