This month, Montréal-Python (in conjunction with McGill's Network Dynamics lab) will let you discover your obsessions on Twitter (or others' obsessions) by reading and analysing Twitter feeds with Python. This second workshop of our Winter 2012 session will be the occasion to discover new Python goodies while playing with data from Twitter.

Our workshops are open to all and absolutely free. No need to have attended the previous one to attend this workshop. Only minimal knowledge of Python is required (e.g: basic types).

Bring your laptop and try to have Python installed before the workshop. If you have trouble with the installation, the Montréal-Python team will be able to help at the very beginning of the workshop.

Installation procedures and all the information on this workshop are on the workshop's wiki page : Workshop 2012-02-23 : Python : more advanced notions and use of Twitter API.
