#Getting started with voevent-parse
This tutorial should get you up and running with voevent-parse, so that you can work effectively with the VOEvent data format. It also covers some of the basics on XML and lxml.objectify.
This tutorial is intended to accompany the Notes on VOEvent. If you're new to VOEvents, I suggest you read those pages first. Both this tutorial, and the notes, were originally written to support the hands-on session at the Hotwired Universe IV conference, but should be accessible to anyone familiar with Python.
- IPython (IPython notebook strongly recommended, but not essential.)
##Running the code
Run IPython Notebook from this directory and load up the notebooks.
Or, if you prefer a regular (I)Python terminal, you can read through the
.py versions and copy-paste the code snippets as you go along.
##Ready-made versions Can't be bothered to download this repo? Just want a quick reference? Here's some I made earlier:
