Smart coders wanted for short, intermittent, one-off projects.

Think "i need you to write me a few classes to do task X for $1000".

I want several smart, reliable guys with clean code and great communication skills on-call.

Respond here or PM me with email address.

Thanks ;)

Are you signed up with coder's clan?

Can you send me a resume?

A buddy of mine is making some pickups for me. They are SO SWEET looking, and hand-wired to my specs. They can make anything you can dream up no matter how extreme. Check out it out. WIP, but I'm so excited:

I told him I'd spread the word, so:

Why does this group exist when there's a much larger (125k users) group also called "Python"?

I vote that we destroy this group and consolidate under the other to strengthen it.

A quick search of communities gives 8 other groups (additional to the first 2) that are also just called "Python"

Python 3.5 to have "@" operator for matrix multiplication.

I hate it. Why not "x"??

I literally hate the use of the shorthand character "@" to represent matrix multiplication in Python. Yes.

Hedgehog Inadvertently Plays a Respectable Measure of Jazz Just by Walking Atop Piano Keys
Marutaro, the adorable hedgehog who poses for silly pictures and loves to be tickled, inadvertently plays a respectable measure of jazz whenever he walks on the keys of the family piano.

I wonder what sort of harmony they're attracted to
 
Spiders tune the silk threads of their webs like guitar strings! 

They use the different vibration frequencies for location purposes, to find their mate or a meal.

The default behavior of pandas to_csv is to add a new index - a brand new column of on-the-spot generated indices - to the csv.

You can deactivate this by setting index=False

However, I believe it should be False by default; why should an alteration to the structure of your data be the "default" option?

You might as well also append a time-series clip of the neigh of a shetland pony by default.

Also, with the default settings - if you repeatedly load and save a csv, it will add column after column of index.

This is obviously not ideal behavior.

index=False by default - who's with me?!

Interesting talk, an analysis which I haven't heard before
 
Good talk on the basic properties of deep learning: Signal and Image Classification - Stephane Mallat Technion lecture
The interesting message is that you would not easily get the results of Deep Networks by approaching the problem theoretically only. These results are 10+ years old and have been obtained by studying neuroscience, and other disciplines, and applying the most promising and evident models.

How can these guys justify this to their constituents? This is a direct choice between putting money in millionaires' pockets and putting it in the hands of the average college student. Republicans have made their choice - how can they legitimately claim to be champions of the working class?
 
Senate Republicans have blocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren's student loan refinancing bill that would have helped 40 million borrowers because it would have raised taxes on millionaires.
