One of the most popular mini workshops at last year's Data Day Texas was Matthew Russell's session on mining the social web. It was based on his O'Reilly book with the same name (Mining the Social Web). We asked Matthew if he would extend it to a full day class, and fortunately he agreed.
This is a rare opportunity. Because Matthew spends his days as CTO for Digital Reasoning, don't expect to see this class on the road. No telling if/when it will be offered again.
This is a standalone workshop to be held on the day before Data Day Texas 2015. Accommodations at the AT&T Conference Hotel are available.
Attendees should just be curious about data mining and have the desire to dig-in on social web data. The workshop is tailored for a beginner to slightly intermediate audience and is a little more broad than it is deep since there's a lot of landscape to sample across.
No software required. Mathew will be providing everything that's needed on cloud machines and will reveal that to everyone during the first few minutes of the workshop. You'l just need a computer that can connect to the Internet. No large downloads. Just connectivity through the web browser to work in IPython Notebook.
