2021 Talk: Scaling and maintaining OpenRefine
OpenRefine is a data wrangling tool that celebrated its 10th birthday this year. Cleaning and importing data in knowledge graphs is its core use case since it was originally designed to help populate Freebase. In this talk, I want to give a broad overview of the latest developments in the tool and our efforts to consolidate it as a mature open source project. Please come along and tell us where you would like to see the tool in a few years!
