Today is exactly a year since we presented our R package, dexter, for the first time at the 2017 Psychoco workshop in Vienna. Having partaken of the birthday cake , I (Ivailo) now concentrate on this year’s edition of Psychoco, where I will present a talk on item-total regressions in dexter. The slides, or a short informal paper, will be posted here after the workshop.
I wish to close, once and for all, the topic of the package’s name. dexter is named after my ex-neighbours’ dog . I was searching for an acronym, preferably not mirt (there are at least three programs under that name already), I looked out of the window, and the name was found. Unfortunately, I could not take a better picture before they moved out, but yes, this is the Real Dexter.
A sweet, caring, out going guy that is a good friend. Dexters are good boyfriends. Probably the best anyone could ever have (…) Everything about them is perfect.
a sexually attractive male specimen. (damn, that guy is so dexter)
When something is killer (Baby, you’re looking Dexter today.)
Anyway – killer or not, we hope that dexter might be useful to you, and we are working hard to bring it up to version 1.0.0.
