Reading Data from APIs with Python, JSON, and Web Services In-Person

In this workshop, we'll use Python to read data directly from Web APIs. This will also provide our first opportunity in this workshop series to start investigating real world data that may be relevant to your research or analysis. We will use the Internet Archive API to search the tobacco archives and other UCSF collections, and the National Library of Medicine's JSON based web service to investigate drug interactions. For more information on syllabus and topics, please see the course web page at:

Prerequisites:

This workshop will involve lots of hands on coding wtih JSON and Python. To follow along with the coding exercises, you should be familiar with core Python at the level covered in the DSI Intro to Python series.  

If you haven't enrolled in these introductory workshops, you can access the coursework and self-study options on the main DSI Programming web page at:
