CANCELED: Python Machine Learning Fundamentals: Parts 1-2

November 14, 2022, 4:00pm
This workshop introduces students to scikit-learn, the popular machine learning library in Python, as well as the auto-ML library built on top of scikit-learn, TPOT. The focus will be on scikit-learn syntax and available tools to apply machine learning algorithms to datasets. No theory instruction will be provided.
Registration is unavailable.

CANCELED: R Geospatial Fundamentals: Vector Data, Parts 1-2

November 14, 2022, 10:00am
Geospatial data are an important component of data visualization and analysis in the social sciences, humanities, and elsewhere. The R programming language is a great platform for exploring these data and integrating them into your research. This workshop focuses on fundamental operations for reading, writing, manipulating and mapping vector data, which encodes location as points, lines and polygons.
Registration is unavailable.

R Data Visualization

November 7, 2022, 2:00pm
This workshop will provide an introduction to graphics in R with ggplot2. Participants will learn how to construct, customize, and export a variety of plot types in order to visualize relationships in data. We will also explore the basic grammar of graphics, including the aesthetics and geometry layers, adding statistics, transforming scales, and coloring or panelling by groups. You will learn how to make histograms, boxplots, scatterplots, lineplots, and heatmaps as well as how to make compound figures.

Python Fundamentals: Parts 1-4

November 7, 2022, 11:00am
This four-part, interactive workshop series is your complete introduction to programming Python for people with little or no previous programming experience. By the end of the series, you will be able to apply your knowledge of basic principles of programming and data manipulation to a real-world social science application.

R Data Wrangling and Manipulation: Parts 1-2

November 1, 2022, 2:00pm
It is said that 80% of data analysis is spent on the process of cleaning and preparing the data for exploration, visualization, and analysis. This R workshop will introduce the dplyr and tidyr packages to make data wrangling and manipulation easier. Participants will learn how to use these packages to subset and reshape data sets, do calculations across groups of data, clean data, and other useful tasks.

Python Text Analysis Fundamentals: Parts 1-2

November 1, 2022, 12:00pm
This two-part workshop series will prepare participants to move forward with research that uses text analysis, with a special focus on humanities and social science applications.

Python Web Scraping & APIs

November 2, 2022, 3:00pm
In this workshop, we cover how to extract data from the web using Python. We focus on two approaches to extracting data from the web: leveraging application programming interfaces (APIs) and web scraping.

Stata Fundamentals: Parts 1-3

October 26, 2022, 9:00am
This workshop is a three-part introductory series that will teach you Stata from scratch with clear introductions, concise examples, and support documents. You will learn how to download and install the Stata software, understand data and basic manipulations, import and subset data, explore and visualize data, and understand the basics of automation in the form of loops and functions. After completion of this workshop you will have a foundational understanding to create, organize, and utilize workflows for your personal research.

Python Visualization

October 26, 2022, 3:00pm
For this workshop, we'll provide an introduction to visualization with Python. We'll cover visualization theory and plotting with Matplotlib and Seaborn, working through examples in a Jupyter notebook.
