The workshop will aim at teaching basic use of the Python language features to obtain data from social media, what initial steps can be taken to curate it for analytical use, and how to analyze them in a variety of ways of interest to the social sciences and humanities (e.g., statistical analysis, content analysis, natural language processing, machine learning). Participants who have not been exposed to Python are encouraged to complete the Data Carpentry Workshop Using Python (see above) prior to this workshop.
