The community developing text analysis software tools (libraries and packages aimed at programmers) has grown a lot in recent years, some of it coordinated, some of it not. The text analysis eco-system has become richer but also more difficult to integrate. This workshop is designed to bring together the text package developers' community, to share experiences and knowledge, and hopefully foster cooperation. To ensure a safe, enjoyable, and friendly experience for everyone who participates, we have a strict code of conduct.
Formed in 2017 as an rOpenSci "SIG" (special interest group), the Text SIG was created to form an ongoing dialogue between members of the text analysis software developers' community, leading to future, similar events.
This is an invitation-only event. All participants are active members of the text analysis software developers' community, working on packages that involve text analysis, natural language processing, and other aspects of text mining and text data handling. In 2017, this had a heavy R focus, but has expanded to other development frameworks in 2018.
