Topic Modeling of Python Conversations on Tumblr

I had presented a lightning talk on May Python Meetup.

What I did was take all the Python tagged posts from Tumblr. Then I topic analysed them and tried to figure out some interesting things.

Here are the interesting things:

  1. Python is connected to three big topics: nature (the dark night with a dog barking one), startups and coding.

  2. When ignoring the nature one, the trends show that from 2013 to 2016 there was a lot of interest in learning python. But then the interest shifted to startups. (Not sure why. Would be interested in finding out...)

  1. There are people posting python code with comments in Japanese. So, a Japanese python community? (not sure, why it is on Tumblr...)

  2. People really like to create chat apps. (again Why???)

My slides and code are also available.
