I’m researching contemporary political events in the Middle East using data scraped from social media. I needed to identify how to develop my own coding skills to enable me to capture data effectively. I went along to one of the CDCS clinics, and the research technologist was able to help me sort out my python scripts: it was extremely useful and in a short time, with his help, I was able to make a huge step forward with my research. I’ve since successfully applied for a CDCS bursary to develop my skills at a Social Media Methods summer school, from which my project will also benefit enormously.
