Data Meetup: Sentiment Analysis on Your Facebook Data with NLTK


This venue is no longer open for business.

208 SW 5th Ave
Portland, Oregon 97204, US (map)



This workshop will cover natural language processing in general and using NLTK for sentiment analysis in particular.

Some Python experience is recommended, but workshop will be targeted at the absolute beginner.

We anticipate the first hour to consist of an overview of NLTK's functionality, the next half hour or so will be spent in small groups working on several small assignments and eventually implementing a simple sentiment analysis tool.

We are going to be performing sentiment analysis on my Facebook message data. In order to perform the same analysis on YOUR Facebook message data follow the following instructions prior to coming to the meetup (as it takes Facebook a few hours to email you back your information)
