Real Python: The Ultimate List of Python YouTube Channels

Comments Off on Real Python: The Ultimate List of Python YouTube Channels, Python, by admin.

We couldn’t find a good, up-to-date list of Python developer or Python programming YouTube channels online.

Learning Python on YouTube is a viable option these days, and we’re excited about what this new medium can do for programming education.

There are some really good YouTube channels that focus on Python development out there, but we just couldn’t find a list that was both comprehensive and up-to-date. So we created our own with the best and most Pythonic YouTubers.

We initially … Read the rest

Marcos Dione: identity-countries-languages-and-currencies

Comments Off on Marcos Dione: identity-countries-languages-and-currencies, Python, by admin.

I started watching PyCon’s videos.
One of the first ones I saw is Amber Brown’s “How we do identity wrong”.
I think she[1] is right in raising not only the notion of not assuming things
related to names, addresses and ID numbers,
but also that you shouldn’t be collecting information that you don’t need; at
some point, it becomes a liability.

In the same vein about assuming, I have more examples. One of them is deciding

Continuum Analytics Blog: Introducing Dask for Scalable Machine Learning

Comments Off on Continuum Analytics Blog: Introducing Dask for Scalable Machine Learning, Python, by admin.

Although Python contains several powerful libraries for machine learning, unfortunately, they don’t always scale well to large datasets. This has forced data scientists to use tools outside of the Python ecosystem (e.g., Spark) when they need to process data that can’t fit on a single machine. But thanks to Dask, data scientists can now use …
