Go was initially very attractive to us. The language felt very natural coming from Python backgrounds, and the performance approaches C levels. The goroutine model and channels are very easy to work and immensely powerful to manage concurrency.
Google (GOOG) Chairman Eric Schmidt’s April 13 tweet was bold, ambitious, and a bit inexplicable. “For every person online, there are two that are not,” wrote the co-author of the book The New Digital Age. “By the end of the decade, everyone on Earth will be connected.”
Tumblr took the best of what Projectionist and anarchaia had to offer and combined it in one platform: anarchaia’s simplicity met Projectionist’s design appeal.
How many component parts are required to construct the universe? The standard model has so many component parts that it is difficult to state a specific number. String theory has vibrating strings, branes, exchange particles and 11 dimensions. This book makes the case that everything in the universe can be formed from the single building block of 4 dimensional spacetime. However, this is not the quiet, smoothly curving spacetime envisioned by Albert Einstein. Instead, it is the composite of Einstein’s spacetime and the quantum mechanical spacetime filled with a tremendous energy density of quantum fluctuations. This book shows how all fundamental particles, forces and cosmology can be derived from this energetic 4 dimensional spacetime.
Pattern is a web mining module for the Python programming language. It bundles tools for data retrieval (Google Twitter Wikipedia API, web spider, HTML DOM parser), text analysis (rule-based shallow parser, WordNet interface, syntactical semantical n-gram search algorithm, tf-idf cosine similarity LSA metrics), clustering and classification (k-means, k-NN, SVM), and data visualization (graph networks).
Theano is a Python library that allows you to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays efficiently.

watchdog is a Python API and shell utilities to monitor file system events. This means you can watch some directory and define a “push-based” system. Watchdog supports all kinds of problems. A solid piece of engineering that does it much better than the 5 or so libraries I tried before finding out about it.
Challenge: provide the best explanation, to a software engineer with little understanding of HTTP, for Polling, Long Polling, Comet, Server-sent Events (SSE), and WebSockets.
In a nutshell heaptrasher is an application which is used to generate a lot of garbage to GC operate on. In addition it contains some code to generate histogram with latency statistics. Mentioned statistics data can be collected in two different ways. Worth mentioning is that the first one (array) allocate a lot of memory in Old Generation space and the second does not. I was later to find, it has a considerable impact on GC performance.
“Music is fundamentally math and physics. It’s waves and frequencies,” says Katzin, whose landmark piece, Schrödinger’s Cat, tells the story of a famous thought experiment devised in 1935 by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger.
CRYPTOGRAPHY is an arms race between Alice and Bob, and Eve. These are the names cryptographers give to two people who are trying to communicate privily, and to a third who is trying to intercept and decrypt their conversation. Currently, Alice and Bob are ahead—just. But Eve is catching up. Alice and Bob are therefore looking for a whole new way of keeping things secret. And they may soon have one, courtesy of quantum mechanics.
Results of the team’s latest research, which shows that the unique properties of a TI can be modified by intrinsic defects present in Bi2Se3 films when grown on graphene/silicon carbide (SiC), were featured on the front cover of a recent issue of the journal Physical Review Letters.
