Data in the Wild: Transforming Excel, Text & Other Stuff into Data You Can Use

Trouble slicing data just the way you want? Survey data got you down? Trouble slicing data just the way you want? Why is it that sometimes data is easy to analyze and other times it seems nearly impossible? This session will explore the wide variety of data out there in the world. We'll look at:

·Excel files with odd "shapes"
·Working with multiple flat files that contain separate 'chunks' of the same (or similar) data
·Free tools that can help you collect, scrape, reformat, and edit data from the web and other sources, all with the idea that all data should have the same chance to express itself!
