To create Logos 6, developers, scholars, and linguists all pitched in to solve problems, leverage data, and prepare the software for other cultures. And many of them will be presenting their most innovative work at this year’s BibleTech conference.
Here are four speakers you’ll hear from at BibleTech:
- Factbook is one of Logos 6′s most popular tools. Software developer Tom Philpot will talk about some of the critical challenges our development team faced in implementing it, and he’ll discuss the future of this exciting feature.
- Sean Boisen’s talk, “Seeing the Big Picture: Visualizing the Bible Data,” will discuss the ways that Logos datasets can be visually explored. He describes it like this:
For many people, Bible study is about closely and carefully reading small portions of the biblical text. But growing quantities of Bible data, together with data visualization techniques, are creating new opportunities to literally ‘see the big picture’ of the Bible. These approaches uncover larger patterns that can both provide insight and direct personal study. This presentation will review the many datasets that Logos has developed and demonstrate how they offer new ways to visualize the Bible.
- Dr. Steve Runge, scholar-in-residence of High Definition Commentary fame, will discuss low-tech tools and strategies that can improve and simplify grammatical analysis and prevent Bible scholars from being overwhelmed by too much detail from advanced original-language databases.
- Rick Brannan made a tremendous contribution to the datasets in Logos 6. He’ll be speaking on the localization of these datasets—you’ll get a unique perspective on the information you use daily in your software.
