In this lab course students will build tools to explore and apply theories of information organization and retrieval. Students will implement various concepts covered in the concurrent 202 course through small projects on topics like controlled vocabularies, the semantic web and corpus analysis. We will also experiment with topics suggested by students during the course. Students will develop skills in rapid prototyping of web-based projects using Python, XML and jQuery. No particular programming language is required, though students should be comfortable using or learning a scripting language like JavaScript, Python or PHP.

It's suggested that students take Info 202 concurrently, or have taken it in the past. Non-iSchool students are welcome.

You should be signed up for both the i290-iolab@ischool mailing list and the piazza area for this class (see Resources)
