The objective of this workshop is to introduce students to the Python programming language and several libraries particularly useful for the humanities and social sciences. In learning basic Python syntax, we'll also learn to scrape information from the web and parse it for varied uses.
Preparation: Please consult this page to prepare your computer for the workshop: https://github.com/sul-cidr/python_workshops/blob/master/setup.ipynb  If you need help with the installation, please arrive 20 minutes early and we're happy to help you.
This workshop is offered by Stanford Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Research as part of its mission to provide training in technical academic research practices and applied research methods.  The workshop will be led by Scott Bailey and Javier de la Rosa.
