The Community Data Workshops (CDSW) are a series of sessions designed to introduce some of the basic tools of programming and analysis of data from online communities to absolute beginners.
The first CDSW were held in Spring 2014 at the University of Washington, Seattle and a second round is planned for Fall 2014 This wiki includes links to the curriculum we used so thats other can build on and learn from our curriculum.
- Community Data Science Workshops (Spring 2014) along with many subpages
- Community Data Science Workshops (Fall 2014) along with many subpages (currently accepting applicants!)
Put on your own CDSW
A number of people have expressed interest in putting on their own CDSW or using our curriculum. For example, the Python Workshops for Beginners organized in Waterloo use a very similar curriculum.
If you are interested in doing something like this, we've put together some reflections and resources that might be of interest to you:
