ACENET: HSS Working with Data Series: Regular Expressions

Wed, Nov 16, 2022 @ 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Status: Completed

This is a hands-on introductory workshop that provides an introduction to using Regular Expressions.

The session is the second of our Humanities and Social Sciences: Working with Data Series.

This is an introductory lesson adapted from the Library Carpentry workshop on Introduction to working with Data that introduces people with library- and information-related roles, or those in the Humanities & Social Sciences professions that work with data, to using regular expressions. Regular expressions are a concept and an implementation used in many different programming environments for sophisticated pattern matching. They are an incredibly powerful tool that can amplify your capacity to find, manage, and transform data and files. The lesson provides background on the regular expression language and how it can be used to match and extract text and to clean data. No previous experience with programming is required.

This session will be delivered online.

Participants must register using their institutional / organizational email address (not a personal email, ie. gmail).

Connections details for the session as well as further preparation information will be sent out prior to the session.
