Location: University of Edinburgh, venue TBC
Requirements: no prior knowledge of programming
Scope and level of training: The workshops cater both for advanced participants and those with no coding experience by aiming to demonstrate open-source, cross-platform tools and code. The introductory lecture is to give an overview of the range of methods available for digital research. Areas to be covered in the workshops include basic text processing, geolocation and mapping, network analysis and machine learning. By writing their own code or focussing on the demos, participants are expected to engage with the conceptual work around quantitative humanities research that will allow them to confidently pursue further learning.
