Real-time notifications on Django using gevent-socketio and RabbitMQ

This time we’ll be replacing Node.js with a 100% Python implementation using gevent-socketio and Redis with RabbitMQ, but we also didn’t want to bore you with the same vanilla notifications site, so we’re going to build something different. Something useful. This time we’re going to build a complete GeoDjango-based site to report geo-located incidents in real-time using Google Maps. The Application The application is a Django 1.7 site that uses GeoDjango (backed by PostGIS) to track and report in real-time geo-located incidents that occur in certain areas of interest around the world.

Introduction to Machine Learning with Python and Scikit-Learn

Hello, %username%! My name is Alex. I deal with machine learning and web graphs analysis (mostly in theory). I also work on the development of Big Data products for one of the mobile operators in Russia. It’s the first time I write a post, so please, don’t judge me too harshly. Nowadays, a lot of people want to develop efficient algorithms and take part in machine learning competitions. So they come to me and ask: “Where to start?

A Little Lisp Interpreter in Python

When reading the “Binary trees” chapter in Programming Interviews Exposed by John Mongan, I thought about the ways recursion is explained to beginners. For example, via sorts, traversing binary trees, building Fibonacci sequence and so on and so forth. But is it really that difficult to find a more interesting example? That’s when Lisp came to my mind, as it is inseparable from the notion of recursion. Moreover, a little Lisp interpreter is a great example to study recursion.
