Throughout my two years as a Mellon Fellow in the Digital Humanities, I gained valuable technical skills via training and hands-on experience.
The formal training took two forms: either a group training session led by a member of the University of Rochester's Digital Scholarship Lab, or an individual, online training in the form of the courses offered by Treehouse.
