The Programming Historian en español ha establecido una comunidad diversa en la que publicamos tutoriales revisados por pares dirigidos a humanistas que quieran aprender a utilizar herramientas digitales para sus propósitos de investigación y/o enseñanza. Hasta hoy, el equipo en español se ha centrado en la traducción de lecciones escritas en inglés, adaptándolas en la medida de lo posible a su uso en español.

This post outlines a few tips for how to sculpt that idea into a manageable and sustainable lesson, while also giving a sense of the level of work involved. We hope that this will help our authors at those early stages of the process, and encourage them to sculpt project ideas that will result in valuable finished lessons that our readers can benefit from.

However, no set of technical solutions can address every sustainability problem faced by lessons about the fast-developing world of software.
