Coffee and Code: Introduction to Bookworm

August 18 from 2:00-3:30pm in Bass Library, L06

Visualize word frequencies at the DHLab's Coffee and Code. During the workshop, participants learned how to deploy Bookworm, a tool for analyzing trends in word or phrase frequencies over a designated time span. Sample text files were provided, but participants were encouraged to bring their own data for discussion. No prior programming experience was required.

Couldn't make it to the workshop?

See our GitHub page for what we covered.

For the cloud-based version of Bookworm, visit Culturomics.

To see one deployment of Bookworm in action, check out the n-gram search on Yale's "Robots Reading Vogue" project site.
