The training school will be hosted by the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University. It is open to scholars of all academic stages, ranging from bachelor students to established researchers, who need to get started with programming.

It is part of the Training Digital Scholars: Knowledge Exchange between V4 and Austria Series financed by the Visegrad Fund Project No. 21820079 and organized by partners of the DARIAH Central European Hub, in coordination with the DigiLing Summer school.

In this training school, you will familiarize yourself with the basic programming concepts while using Python NLTK, the leading Python library suite for human language data. For more information about the lectures, see the teaser.

This class is supported by DataCamp, the most intuitive learning platform for data science. Learn R, Python and SQL the way you learn best through a combination of short expert videos and hands-on-the-keyboard exercises. Take over 100+ courses by expert instructors on topics such as importing data, data visualization or machine learning and learn faster through immediate and personalised feedback on every exercise.
