This hands-on workshop introduces the basic elements of Python by working through an example of how to analyze text data. Python is a general purpose programming language commonly used for data cleaning, analysis, visualization, and other applications. Note that the focus of the workshop is on how to use Python rather than why you might want to use Python over other software. This workshop is appropriate for those with little or no prior experience with Python.
This workshop will be delivered by the HBS Research Computing Services group in partnership with the Data Science Services group at IQSS.
