Published Mon, Nov 7, 2016, recorded Mon, Nov 7, 2016
Welcome to Python Bytes. Python headlines delivered directly to your earbuds. In this first episode we cover PyData videos, safety-db project, and more!
- 64 videos (30 hours)
- Some standout videos
- ElasticSearch and Redis How and When to Use Them
- Renee Teate | Becoming a Data Scientist Advice From My Podcast Guests (becoming a data scientist podcast)
- Visual diagnostics for more informed machine learning
- You got your engineering in my Data Science: Addressing the reproducibility crisis
- A python module to make handling command line arguments easy
- There are many ways to create a command line parser in python: argparse, docopt, click. These are all great options, but require quite a lot of configuration and sometimes you just need a function to be called. Enter easyargs. Define the function that you want to be called, decorate it and let easyargs work out the command line.
- A curated database of insecure Python packages
- What is this? This is an effort to collect all known security vulnerabilities in Python packages and make them available to consume for humans and automated tools.
- What is this not? This is not a hall of shame, or a list of packages to avoid. The package maintainers show a great responsibility by documenting and fixing security issues in such a way that they can be listed here. That's extremely valuable when considering using a package in production.
- Since A-Ha's take on me video, I've loved the idea of short video done in stylized art format.
- Uses Tenserflow, which I've never used before. No practical use I can think of, but would be fun.
- New: Add a pip check command to check installed packages dependencies
- pip show is less verbose by default.
- Add --not-required option to pip list, which lists packages that are not dependencies of other packages.
- Many more, including fixes
- 9.0.1 (4 days later with 5 fixes)
- I'd never even heard of sentiment analysis before. This is cool that it's topical, interesting, and short.
