There are interesting things going on in the world of Communication Science. More and more people are working with huge datasets, and more and more students are eager to learn automated approaches to content analysis. And accordingly, this is slowly but steadily becoming a bigger part of my teaching. One option for these tasks is using the programming language Python. I’m still busy designing a course on this for the future, but right now, for the thesis students I supervise, we can use this Etherpad for sharing some useful code-snippets.
