Peekaboo: Machine Learning Cheat Sheet (for scikit-learn)

Peekaboo: Machine Learning Cheat Sheet (for scikit-learn): "As you hopefully have heard, we at scikit-learn are doing a user survey (which is still open by the way).
One of the requests there was to provide some sort of flow chart on how to do machine learning.

ongoing by Tim Bray · How to Think About OAuth: "For ex­am­ple, Google has an au­tho­riza­tion pro­to­col for ac­cess­ing its APIs that’s to­tally OAu­th2. It meets our se­cu­rity needs and it’s been easy for us (and any­one else) to ship li­braries for app builders to use, be­cause there are start­ing to be com­mon bits and pieces of frame­work im­ple­men­ta­tion to use. And also be­cause OAu­th2 just isn’t that hard."

Ben Alman » A Bit of Advice for the JavaScript Semicolon Haters

Ben Alman » A Bit of Advice for the JavaScript Semicolon Haters: "Earlier today, one of my coworkers was contributing to a cool new JavaScript lib, and complained that while he loves contributing to open source projects (who doesn’t, right?) he finds it annoying to read JavaScript code without semicolons.

Not just that, but he mentioned that he finds it amusing when, amidst hundreds of lines of otherwise pristine semicolon-less code, there is a single line that starts with a semicolon.

This is not easy… try hard to figure this out before looking at the answer."

bpostlethwaite/colormap · GitHub

bpostlethwaite/colormap · GitHub: "Super simple just do,

options = {
colormap: "jet" // pick your colormap
, nshades: 72 // how many divisions
, format: "hex" // "hex" or "rgb"
}
cg = colormap(options)
where leaving options = {} or undefined results in the defaults given above. There is a minimum number of nshades divisions you can select since the algorithms for each colormap have different requirements. colormap throws an error if there are too few divisions for the chosen colormap and gives the minimum number required. You should be safe with n > 10 for all the colormaps, though some require much less (much simpler to implemenent)."
