Thinking like a computer: The Fundamentals of Programming https://dresa.org.au/materials/thinking-like-a-computer-the-fundamentals-of-programming Human brains are extremely good at evaluating a small amount of information simultaneously, ignoring anomalies and coming up with an answer to a problem without much in the way of conscious thought. Computers on the other hand are extremely good at performing individual calculations, one at a time, and can keep the results in a large bank of short-term memory for quick recall. These two approaches are fundamentally different. Humans can only reasonably retain seven plus or minus two pieces of information in short-term memory, and new items push older items out, whereas a computer is hopeless when given multiple pieces of information simultaneously. Understanding this fact is key to being able to write instructions for computers - also known as programs – in a way that takes advantage of their strengths, and overcomes their drawbacks. Suitable for the programming novice, this webinar is good preparation for researchers wanting to learn how to program. #### You'll learn: - How a human solves tasks - How a computer solves tasks - Overview of programming concepts: - Variables - Loops - Conditionals - Functions - Data types #### Prerequisites: The webinar has no prerequisites. **For more information, please click [here](https://intersect.org.au/training/course/coding003).** training@intersect.org.au Programming

Collecting Web Data https://dresa.org.au/materials/collecting-web-data Web scraping is a technique for extracting information from websites. This can be done manually but it is usually faster, more efficient and less error-prone if it can be automated. Web scraping allows you to convert non-tabular or poorly structured data into a usable, structured format, such as a .csv file or spreadsheet. But scraping is about more than just acquiring data: it can help you track changes to data online, and help you archive data. In short, it's a skill worth learning. So join us for this web scraping workshop to learn web scraping, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation. #### You'll learn: - The concept of structured data - The use of XPath queries on HTML document - How to scrape data using browser extensions - How to scrape using Python and Scrapy - How to automate the scraping of multiple web pages #### Prerequisites: A good knowledge of the basic concepts and techniques in Python.

  • Databases and SQL at UC Online

    9 September 2022

    Databases and SQL at UC Online https://dresa.org.au/events/databases-and-sql-at-uc-online A relational database is an extremely efficient, fast and widespread means of storing structured data, and Structured Query Language (SQL) is the standard means for reading from and writing to databases. Databases use multiple tables, linked by well-defined relationships, to store large amounts of data without needless repetition while maintaining the integrity of your data. Moving from spreadsheets and text documents to a structured relational database can be a steep learning curve, but one that will reward you many times over in speed, efficiency and power. Developed using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation. #### You'll learn: - Understand and compose a query using SQL - Use the SQL syntax to select, sort and filter data - Calculate new values from existing data - Aggregate data into sums, averages, and other operations - Combine data from multiple tables - Design and build your own relational databases #### Prerequisites: The course has no prerequisites. **For more information, please click [here](https://intersect.org.au/training/course/sql101).** 2022-09-09 09:30:00 UTC 2022-09-09 12:30:00 UTC Intersect Australia Australia Australia UC training@intersect.org.au [] [] [] host_institution []
