This new blog series aims to help DevOps leaders in organization get stakeholder buy-in. It covers approaches to talking about why, as well as specific things you can do to sell your ideas.

In this article, let us discuss briefly about two interesting features of NumPy viz. mutation by slicing and broadcasting.

What started as a twitter disagreement carries over into this civil discussion of software testing. Brian and Paul discuss testing practices such as the testing pyramid, TDD, unit testing, system testing, and balancing test effort.

htmldate provides a simple and convenient way to extract the creation or modification date of web pages, within Python or on the command-line. Based on HTML parsing and scraping functions:

Deploying nginx in a dynamic container environment takes a little work, especially if you don’t want to pay the big bucks for NGINX Plus. I wrote a low-tech python script for learning how things work under the hood; find it on my Github. There are open-source reverse-proxy solutions that are built specifically for container environments, like traefik. Traefik obviates the need for nginx altogether, but if you still want to run nginx, consider nginx-proxy.

Never worry about balancing a new integration against a new feature.

In this article I will show you how to build simple restful api with flask and SQLite that have capabilities to create, read, update, and delete data from database.

This post is the first of many to come on Apache Arrow, pandas, pandas2, and the general trajectory of my work in recent times and into the foreseeable future. This is a bit of a read and overall fairly technical, but if interested I encourage you to take the time to work through it.

Embed docs directly on your website with a few lines of code. Test the API for free.


Most people who want to simulate logic ICs will use Verilog, VHDL, or System Verilog. Not [hsoft]. He wanted to use Python, and wrote a simple Python framework for doing just that. You can find the code on GitHub, and there is an ASCII video that won’t embed here at Hackaday, but which you can view at ASCIInema.

Python is a great language for data analysis. pandas is a Python package providing fast, flexible, and expressive data structures designed to make working with “relational” or “labeled” data both easy and intuitive. It aims to be the fundamental high-level building block for doing practical, real world data analysis in Python. In this post we’ll get to know more about doing data analysis using pandas.


Serpent.AI is a simple yet powerful, novel framework to assist developers in the creation of game agents. Turn ANY video game you own into a sandbox environment ripe for experimentation, all with familiar Python code. The framework's raison d'être is first and foremost to provide a valuable tool for Machine Learning & AI research. It also turns out to be ridiculously fun to use as a hobbyist (and dangerously addictive; a fair warning)!

The Django Rest Framework (DRF), has a lot of built in functionality that supports CRUD operations, but building an RPC endpoint requires hand-rolling much of that. Ultimately, if we’re adding an RPC endpoint to an existing API with mostly REST endpoints, we want to match the design of our new endpoint to match that of the DRF, so we need to understand what each piece does.

This post will show and explain how to build a simple tool for Sentiment Analysis of Twitter posts using Python and a few other libraries on top. Full code is available on GitHub.

Google’s gRPC provides a framework for implementing RPC (Remote Procedure Call) workflows. By layering on top of HTTP/2 and using protocol buffers, gRPC promises a lot of benefits over conventional REST+JSON APIs.

Those iterables are more powerful than you can possibly imagine.


I need a strong, experienced python 2.7 backend developer to make some changes to a new release. the app is complex and has some documentation (limited on the technical side), but code is very readable.
