Tasks for the week 1/2 – 1/6

There is less than a week before teaching starts again, so I will be putting in as much time as possible to learn more Python in the next four days. Here are my sources:

Michael Allen‘s blog: meant for data science beginners in healthcare, but it is absolutely necessary for all Python novices in any knowledge domain

Paul Barry’s Head First Python (O’Reilly): fun to read, relatively easy introduction to Python, but things get pretty complicated starting with the web development chapter

Ryan Mitchell‘s Web Scraping with Python: Collecting Data from the Modern Web (O’Reilly): essential web scraping for a social scientist like myself

For more information on Python’s BeautifulSoup library, I recommend this video by Corey Schafer
