Practical Web Technologies for Social Scientists
Date: Thursday, April 8, 2021
Time: 1:00pm – 2:30pm
Instructor: Neal Fultz
This workshop will introduce the alphabet soup of technologies powering the modern web; TCP/IP, HTTP, HTML, XML, JSON, REST APIs, OAUTH, SSL, AWS, among others. Attendees will build up enough background knowledge to begin scraping data from the web. R/Python/JS will be demonstrated, but the concepts are reasonably generic.
