Join the Social Computing Working Group for the first in a series of related workshops. This workshop will feature two topics and will allow for discussion and coworking time. 

Brooks Ambrose will discuss his experiences studying network clustering, cohesion, and visualization. He will present his work in progress working with citation network data in R. He asks: can I parallelize my code if I use I Python? With what tools should I implement my novel ideas for visualizing network data on the web? 

Sebastian Benthall will discuss "Managing your research project like a boss." He will present how he has organized the technical part of his dissertation as an open source project, BigBang, and how that has opened up opportunities for collaboration with other grad students and attracted undergraduate apprentices. Will present strategies for project management with GitHub and project promotion. We'll also discuss the challenges of adapting software project management best practices to an academic setting.
