Community Data Science Workshops (Spring 2014)/Saturday May 31st projects

From OpenHatch wiki
Page Moved
All material related to the Community Data Science Workshops have been moved from the OpenHatch wiki to a new dedicated wiki and this page is no longer being updated here. Please visit the new version of the page on the Community Data Science Collective wiki.

In the afternoon sessions, there will once again be three options:

  • Option 1: More advanced data munging and visualization using Python and Google Docs — This talk will continue directly from lecture and we will use the same dataset of the metadata from all the Wikipedia articles about Harry Potter.
  • Option 2: Data visualization with Matplotlib — In this session we will focus on making beautiful and nuanced plots using a powerful graphing library within Python. We'll be using a dataset with examples from analysis using the gender of subjects of 180,000 biography articles on Wikipedia
  • Option 3: Self-directed project room — If you have an idea for a project to build or analyze a dataset and you think you can work 70-80% indepedently on it, this is the room for you. Mentors will be around to help you as you get stuck and to give you advice!
