Python is an extremely useful, general purpose, human readable programming language, and it's great for tabular data gathering, cleaning, analysis and visualization! In this introductory workshop, you'll get a glimpse of how to use Jupyter notebooks and Python to transform and explore a couple of different data sets using online tools. You'll need a laptop to do the hands-on activities, but no previous experience or any Python installation is necessary!

The R programming language is a flexible and extensible environment for data manipulation and supports multiple data import methods. Application Programming Interfaces (API) support the harvesting of web-accessible data to create customized datasets. This session will discuss and demonstrate the ingestion and manipulation of JSON formatted data from a publicly accessible API. Techniques learned in this session can be transferred to harvesting from other data APIs.

Steal this data: Using R and Github for Open, Collaborative Research

GitHub is a website where you can share data and code publicly or within a small group of collaborators. Sharing data projects on GitHub can be a great back-up solution and can also help you build a portfolio of data projects. "Stealing" and improving projects that have been shared on GitHub is also a great opportunity to contribute to a larger effort or to learn new skills from more experienced coders and analysts. If you already use RStudio to work on data projects, you can easily use the built-in "projects" to connect straight to an existing GitHub repository. In this workshop, we will use RStudio to connect to a GitHub repository, and then we will walk through basic data analysis and visualization tasks with packages from Hadley Wickham's tidyverse (e.g., dplyr, tidyr, ggplot2). You should only need to bring a laptop with a web browser for this workshop, but we recommend that you try out the RStudio Container available at the OIT Docker Containers site before you arrive. Email askdata@duke.edu if you have any trouble accessing RStudio from the link above.

Film Screening: "Censored Voices" (Mor Loushy, 2015, 84 min, Israel/Germany, in Hebrew and English w/ English Subtitles, Color, Digital)/ On June 5, 1967, the armies of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan amass on Israel's borders, threatening annihilation. Six days later, the war ends with Israel's decisive victory - conquests of Gaza, Sinai, and the West Bank, tripling the tiny country's size. Streets brim with joy, but behind the euphoria and a proud new national narrative of invincibility, are other voices. One week after the war, author Amos Oz audio-records intimate conversations with Israeli soldiers fresh from the battlefield. These provocative tapes, censored until now, are the core of a startling film about the tragic paradox of Zionism and the contradictions that arise when a people seeking freedom turn occupier, when David becomes Goliath. The soldiers' harrowing confessions, combined with rare archival footage and evocative sound design, create a sense of stunning immediacy. As they wrestle with the systemic excision of Palestinians, the dehumanizing nature of war, and echoes of the Holocaust, we listen as these men, now almost 50 years older, hear the recordings for the first time, and the past erupts, presciently, into the present./-- Winner for Best Documentary at Awards of the Israeli Film Academy (2015)! / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oB8EFlf4-M

This workshop will introduce researchers to the basics of NVivo 11 Pro for Mac, a qualitative data analysis software. Participants will learn strategies for analyzing text-based data in NVivo, such as transcribed interviews and focus groups, documents, and literature. Topics will include how to import data, create nodes and code, tips for formatting transcriptions, and basic queries and visualizations. Although Windows users are welcome to attend, this workshop will not address using NVivo in the Windows environment -- we hope to schedule a Windows-centered workshop in the future. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.
