So you want to learn (or brush up on) #python ? We've rounded up the books, online tutorials, coding challenges and more to get you started: http://skimbox.co/blog/python-resources
By David Wihl Python is the language of choice for many applications that collect and analyze text data, including Skimbox's email classifier. Since python was not, for me, a native tongue, I signed up for an EdX course, Introduction to Computer Science Using Python. The following list contains books, tutorials, tools, and other resources my classmates and I have found useful. If you have any to add, please do so in the comments!

Retrotech is a new interview series/exercise in tech nostalgia. Kicking it off is Yuri Broze, data scientist at Nomi: http://skimbox.co/truth-in-tech/retrotech-vol-1-yuri-broze-datasciencehead-at-nomi
By Claire Willett & Elise Kovi To kick of the series, we turned to Yuri Broze. Yuri is a number of things, including: maestro of the right and left brains, unicyclist, pianist, and world-class whistler. He may not be the only data scientist with a PhD in Music Psychology, but he is the only one we know.

The psychology of deferring email: 
The snooze button is over half a century old, but it didn’t make a big splash in our inboxes until 2010, when a small startup baked it into a Gmail plugin they called Boomerang. Boomerang has since added a slew of other features (including some fun game-based ones) but their core value remains the same: allow you, the recipient, to decide when an incoming email should return to your inbox.

And it really is a value: it played a big role in Mailbox’s initial success, and now, the ability to defer has become almost de rigueur for new mail apps, Skimbox included.

Why? Well, because people like it, and they like it because it either gives them more control over their inbox or gives them the perception of having more control over their inbox.

You can now control much of your home via smart phone. Christina Nguyen takes a look at internet-enabled domesticity http://skimbox.co/truth-in-tech/smarter-homes-and-gardens
By Christina Nguyen It is now relatively simple to create internet-enabled devices with either WiFi or a cellular network, and we’ve entered the era of the smartphone-as-universal-controller; small wonder entrepreneurs and larger manufacturers alike are taking notice of the potential of so-called “smart” devices.

Given its rate of success, it's easy to see why "spear-phishing... is the contemporary corporation hacker’s bff." The question is: what can corporations do about it? http://skimbox.co/blog/teach-a-man-to-phish
