Slides from my Strata / Hadoop World 2013 (NYC) hands-on workshop.
Workshop Description from http://strataconf.com/stratany2013/public/schedule/detail/30863
Social web properties such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ have vast amounts of valuable insights lurking just beneath the surface, and this workshop minimizes the barriers to exploring and mining this valuable data by presenting turn-key examples from Mining the Social Web (2nd Edition) with IPython Notebook.
Each module consists of a brief period in which each attendee will customize the corresponding notebook for the module with their own account credentials with the remainder of the module devoted to learning what data is available from the API and exercises demonstrating analysis of the data—all from a pre-populated IPython Notebook. Even attendees with minimal programming experience should be able to walk away from this workshop with a working knowledge of the material and be equipped with sample code that can be easily repurposed given the design of this tutorial.
Time will be set aside at the end of each module’s follow-along presentation for attendees to hack on the code, discuss examples, and ask any lingering questions.
