OLAC 2017 Preconference
There’s More Than One Way to Groom a Cat(alog): Technologies for Data Manipulation and Analysis
Annie Glerum and Kathryn Lybarger are leading the preconference on: There’s More Than One Way to Groom a Cat(alog): Technologies for Data Manipulation and Analysis.
Here’s the preconference summary:
Regex, Refine, and Python, oh my! This preconference demonstrates how the same data manipulation or analysis processes can be performed using different technologies. The session begins with instructions and activities on Regular Expressions, or Regex, which is a key skill for many of the technologies demonstrated. Armed with this understanding of Regex, real-world examples for data manipulation and analysis processes will then be shown using different technologies, such as OpenRefine, Excel, MarcEdit, XSLT, Python, and unix command line tools. The session concludes with an overview of resources for learning these technologies in more depth.
The preconference will be 1:00-5:00 on the afternoon of Thursday, October 26th. The workshops will be on Friday and Saturday.
