Data Science for Good
Introduction
I had my postgraduate degree in Data Mining and Information Retrieval at the University of East Anglia. I am trying to challenge the old saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none". I have about 10 years experience in Software Development. In previous lives I used to work as an Information Security Consultant and Presales Manager. I also have been volunteering in Global Voices Online (GVO) since 2007, and currently I am local ambassador of the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN) in Egypt. Words like Open Data, Government 2.0, Data Visualisation, Data Journalism and Social Startups are like music to my ears.

News of the public "slaughtering" of a dog in Cairo as on-lookers watched has sent shock waves around the world, with many questioning how people have become this violent.

There are tons of Python packages out there. So many that no one man or woman could possibly catch them all. PyPi alone has over 47,000 packages listed! Recently, with so many data scientists making the switch to Python, I couldn't help but think that while they're getting some of the great benefits of pandas, scikit-learn, and numpy, they're missing out on some older yet equally helpful Python libraries. In this post, I'm going to ...
