Learn how to gather plane and ship data from public resources, get access to API plane transponder data, figure out plane and ship ownership, and analyze your data using SQL and Python.

This is a hands-on workshop. The only program you'll need is DB Browser for SQLite: It's available for macOS, Linux and Windows.

NOTE: Before the session, please create a free account.

Important Advisory: Hands-on classes are limited to 30 seats. Please sign up only if you are serious about taking the class. Signing up does not ensure you will get in. The first 20 attendees will get in and be able to use the conference laptops, which are PCs pre-loaded with software and data. The next 10 attendees will need their own laptops and software noted in the course description. If you see online that a class already has 30 sign-ups do not hesitate to still sign up, as seats often open up. We will try to repeat popular classes later in the conference. Thanks for your understanding.
