Community Data Science Workshops (Fall 2014): Difference between revisions

(Corrected the room number for the Savery Hall location)
Come to [http://www.washington.edu/maps/#!/sav Savery Hall (SAV)] 260 by '''9:45am'''. You will need time to get settled and setup. We want to start lecturing promptly at 10am.
 
Please come prepared to start working in your Python interpreter during the lesson. If you are going to be bringing a different computer than the one you brought and setup last time, you will need to go through the setup section of the [[Community Data Science Workshops (Fall 2014)/Day 0 setup and tutorial|setup and tutorial session from the first Friday session]]. You don't need to do the tutorial or CodeAcademy lessons again unless you think that you could use a refresher. You can also skip the sections about installing ''ShakespeareBaby Names'' and ''Wordplay''. We won't be looking at those in this session.
 
To participate in the [[Community Data Science Workshops (Fall 2014)/Day 2 Twitter project|Twitter afternoon session]], you ''must'' have registered with Twitter as a developer before the session by following the [[Twitter authentication setup|Twitter authentication setup instructions]]. If you did not do this, or if you tried but did not succeed, please attend one of the other two sessions instead.
Come to [http://uw.edu/maps/?cmu CMU] 104 by '''9:45am'''. You will need time to get settled and setup. We want to start lecturing promptly at 10am.

In the lecture, we're going to be doing building some simple visualizations online in [http://docs.google.com Google Docs]. Please make sure you have a Google Account you can use for the session and poke around at and create a new Google Spreadsheet. I suspect that most of you are going to use Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice, Gnumeric, etc., in your work after the class but using Google Docs means that we'll all be using the same software during the lecture.
