From the Publisher

Who is this book intended for?

This book is primarily written with researchers in mind, which I will broadly define as social scientists, lawyers, linguists, academics, educators, activists, and journalists. People who have more commercial applications for this kind of research in mind, like marketers or publicists, may also find value in understanding the social web. In terms of skill sets, this book is targeted at people who come with little to no previous programming experience and aims to bring a conceptual understanding of programming to practical exercises for people who are excited to dive into coding for the first time.

What do you want readers to take away from the book?

I want them to feel empowered. Technology and in particular social media plays a huge role in people's lives but few are provided the tools or resources to learn how to better understand it. Learning how to code and how to analyze data, in particular, can seem like a daunting task and I wanted to create a resource that complete novices can use to learn the skills they need to make more sense of social media. Through this book, I hope to show that coding is not just a way to build a bot or to build an app but that it can be a means for exploring one’s curiosity in a world that is increasingly dependent on technology.
