Exploring Companies data with Companies House API and Python - Rory Gianni
A Python-based introduction to the Companies House API. This covers making requests and trying to gather data while overcoming the idiosyncrasies of the CH API.
Rory is a technology trainer and consultant into all things creative and civic tech. Rory is co-founder of conversational AI company, inChat (https://inchat.design). He recently started a blog and channel called Creating with Data which covers various data and visualisation topics.
The talk will be followed by a challenge which attendees can work on in small groups or solo.
If you don’t already have Python set up, we can help you with that too. Coding in pairs or small groups (especially mixing beginner and more experiences coders) is strongly encouraged, though you can also code solo.
This event is orgnanised by a charity - Code The City. CTC suggests a small donation to help with charity admin costs, but if this is a barrier please just change the ticket price to what you can afford.
We're now back to planning physical events backed up with an online option.
If you select a physical ticket and it happens that we can not meet physically you will have to attend the Zoom session. If you choose a physical ticket and it goes ahead you will have to comply with any conditions of attendance (eg masks or social distancing) that the venue operators demand at the time.
Those attending the physical space meetup should attend at 6pm for pizza and drinks. The coding session (for online attendees) will be from 6.30pm. Doors will be locked from 6.30pm.
**If tickets are sold out please do not attend as you will be refused entry without a ticket. **
Our booking system is provided by Tito. Their platform is integrated with payment processing by Stripe
Our physical session starts at 6pm with pizza and drinks.
