Katharina_Pabst But seriously, very impressed with the organizers for making the conference happen entirely online at such short notice. Really hope the rest of the field will start considering similar approaches in the future to make conferences more accessible!

dimalezhnev "What is Software Design?"
A sip of wisdom. This paper has been written 30 years since the exponential growth of programming. And now another ~30 years passed. Not much changed.

lenakmeth @gchrupala Also, canned chickpeas are ridiculously versatile, put them in curries, bake them until crispy, chickpea "meatballs", even use them for brownies. And, the water from the chickpea can is aquafaba = vegan substitute for egg.

liekegelderloos @gchrupala if onions, garlic & chili pepper are considered non-perishable - red dried lentilles, tinned tomatoes, & tomato paste + the above make a great pasta sauce (i apologize in advance to any Italians that have the misfortune to read this)

lenakmeth @gchrupala Sealed tofu is shelf-stable (refrigerate after opening), marinate it with soy sauce & spices, crumble/cube it & sauté it, and you have a good substitute for meat, e.g. in bolognese sauce.
Also, frozen vegetables have the same nutritional value as fresh: stock on onion & gralic.

@EnglishGibson It could be an accidental mixing of "im Kontext von" and "im Zusammenhang mit".

spacy_io Transfer learning has been the big topic in NLP for 2018 and 2019. @seb_ruder opened the conference with how the field has been changing, what it means for OSS, and what could be improved. youtube.com/watch?v=hNPwRP…

spacy_io Without lemmatization you can't even build a decent word cloud. And spaCy's lemmatizer is pretty lacking. @_guadiromero describes a practical hybrid approach: a statistical system will predict rich morphological features enabling precise rule-engineering. youtube.com/watch?v=88zcQO…

spacy_io Instead of defining words with other words, Entity Linking gives you grounded knowledge. @OxyKodit presents her ongoing work to bring this key NLP technology to spaCy. There are few production-ready EL systems, so this will have a big impact. youtube.com/watch?v=PW3RJM…

spacy_io When we invited @pmbaumgartner, we knew he'd steal the show. In the most tweeted talk of the conference, Peter discusses NLP's distinct project management problems, and how to give your applied NLP projects the best chance of success. youtube.com/watch?v=QRGMJW…

seanjtaylor This presentation by @joelgrus on writing research code is chock full of great lessons. It's about NLP but the strategies are general:

I would add one important lesson: don't start writing research code w/o settling on 1-2 (at most) evaluation metrics.

DRileyamusing This was my commute to work in London this morning @BorisJohnson. This is what you get on London underground when you reduce the service but people still have to go to work. There was a lot of coughing too.

How do we stay safe in this environment?

sim_kern To all the folks trying to recreate school at home, with highly structured schedules & worksheets: we teach that way in schools because of CROWD CONTROL, not because it's the best way to learn. Kids have a rare opportunity here to engage in deep, authentic learning instead. 1/

tallinzen A real challenge for an intentional virtual conferences is coordinating schedules across time zones (Japan, Europe, Americas). But is staying up all night really that much worse than flying for 16 hours THEN staying up all night [according to your biological clock]?
