Python is increasingly used by social scientists to collect, process and analyse new types of unstructured or semi-structured data, such as online text and social media data. It is a an accessible, yet versatile programming language which is also broadly used for data science and machine learning tasks, combining multiple types of data, simulation and visualization. This workshop provides an introduction to basic programming notions in Python, and introduces some of the most useful packages used in social science research. No previous programming experience is required. NOTE: This workshop is a prerequisite for the following Q-Step workshops (to be offered this and next term): Collecting Social Media Data, Data Analysis in Python, Text Analysis.

This workshop is free but registration is required. You can register here
