Report for April 2019

Report Date
April 2019

Achievements

  • Justin Ho started work on April 4
  • Induction taken place and project plan drawn up
  • Justin  has already managed to generate some impressive programmatic summaries for the first use case (gender)
  • First project meeting with Hannah, Kirsty and Sarah has taken place- they were very impressed with this work, and we thought about additional use cases and the platform if there is time.

Issues

  • Justin has discovered that he is limited to 100000 API calls per month to genderize. For $9 per month he can get 1000000, so we will pay for this.
  • Justin has also discovered that he is limited to 1000 API calls to Google Books for more author information. There is no payable increment, so he must simply change the way he works.
  • We cannot quite make the 9 hours per week in one day,  so we are looking at working in the annual leave (8 hours per week)/ working up the backlog.

Next Steps

  • Meeting between Justin and Melissa Terras 28/5
  • Pay for genderize subscription through company credit card. Remember to cancel when project finishes!
  • First visualisations to appear this month.

Budget Information

  • Spend to date: £550.87
  • Projected spend: £2224.27
  • This is slightly higher because the genderize api projection was for 1 month at £9. I've put in 3 months at £7 (based on exchange rate 0.77). We may not need all 3 months though.
