In 2013 I spent a few months working as junior django backend developer at the Digital Humanities research center of King’s College London. Under the supervision of expert programmers, I was tasked to design an efficient data-entry system for the EU-funded project DigiPal, a huge portal where medieval manuscripts were digitalised and annotated, glyph by glyph and letter by letter, by hand (Machine learning wasn’t really a thing just yet). In these few months, I familiarised with the framework and built a multiple-inputs system that was used to speed up the annotation process.

More information about the project can be found at the following link: digipal.eu.
