Next Steps in Python Workshop Series is a seven-part series covering intermediate Python skills, tips, and tricks guaranteed to make your coding life easier. You do not need to attend each session to participate - there is a new lesson each week. 

Each one-hour session meets via Zoom on Wednesdays at noon, CDT.  

Parsing text with NLTK
NLTK is one of Python's main libraries for natural language processing (NLP). This workshop introduces the library by focusing on how to parse text to create bags of words. In other words, this workshop teaches how to go from raw text (a string) to a list of words that can be used for different NLP methods. 

Prerequisites: Participants should be familiar with Python at an introductory level.
