- Community Data Science Workshops — The Community Data Science Workshops (CDSW) are a series of workshops designed to introduce some of the basic tools of programming and analysis of data from online communities to absolute beginners. The CDSW have been held twice in Seattle in Spring and Fall 2014. So far, more than 30 people have volunteered their weekends to teach more than 130 people to program in Python, to build datasets from Web APIs, and to ask and answer questions using these data. We are currently planning the third installment for Spring 2015.
- Community Data Science Course (Spring 2015) (COM597 "Programming and Data Science for Social Media") — A semester long course taughted by Benjamin Mako Hill that adapts and builds upon the CDSW curriculum to teach introductory programming and data science to absolute beginners in the context of the University of Washington's Communication Leadership program
