Text Data Workshop
Presenter(s): Lewys Brace
The resource is broken down into three videos. Each video has a Jupyter notebook to accompany it and is aimed it at programming novices. The first video is a very brief intro to Python that covers the parts of the language you need to know to scrape and analyse text data, the second video cover how to build a basic web scraper and save textual data into a file, and the third video covers some very basic textual data analysis; i.e. bi-grams.
Text data workshop part 1
Dr Lewys Brace of the University of Exeter introduces Python in the first of three videos, providing a brief overview and explaining key elements of the software. Then, you can test your understanding by completing the tasks discussed in videos two and three of the series.
Text data workshop part 2
In the second of three videos, Dr Lewys Brace builds upon a basic introduction to Python, looking at how to use knowledge to build a web scraper to scrape simple text data from a website.
Text data workshop part 3
In this third and final part of the series on text data workshops, Dr Lewys Brace of the University of Exeter looks at how to carry out some basic text data analysis.
