Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies to Host a Library Data Carpentry Workshop

Events Faculty

Library Carpentry at Purdue will feature the fundamentals of Tidy Data, including the best practices for creating data that is easily analyzed and shared. There will be an introduction to Python designed to give learners a start in the programming language. Attendees will build on the Python skills they develop in this workshop through an introduction to web scrapping. This is a relatively new Carpentries lesson that will use specialized tools like Python to automate the extraction of information from websites. All lessons are designed for beginners. The web scrapping module assumes some understanding of HTML and how webpages are structured, but no other prior knowledge is necessary.

This is a free workshop but registration is required. Registration is currently open to only Purdue faculty and staff. Please register by January 21. After January 21 this invitation will be open to others. Limited space is available.
