At PyCon Finland

Yesterday, I attended PyCon Finland as a speaker. Kiran and I gave a talk on using networkx to visualize interactions on Twitter. The talk was aimed at beginner / intermediate-level programmers and we described, essentially, how we produced the plots that appear in our work¹ on polarization on social media.

The Jupyter notebook for our slides is here.

Update: The video of our talk is posted on YouTube.

In a parallel session, Clemens also presented coding material from his masters thesis on text classification.
