The teammate that I got for my Data Mining course was not that interested in the data analysis that I was doing, so I asked her what she wanted to do. She said that she wants to analyse the StackOverflow data.
So in order for us to do this, I tried to find an API that we could use. I ended up doing a small example of how to use the API, to get her started. The code can be found here.
We did not end up using the API, but it was still nice found out that it is possible.
