Galvanize recently attended the Dato Data Science Summit in San Francisco, a gathering of more than 1,000 data scientists and researchers from industry and academia to discuss and learn about the most recent advances in data science, applied machine learning, and predictive applications.

8 Tools That Show What's on the Horizon for Python

Here are eight Python tools that our instructors think data scientists will be using in the coming months and years: SFrame and SGraph One of the biggest announcements out of the Dato Data Science Summit was that SFrame and SGraph will be going open source, available for anyone with a BSD license. Multivariate Techniques in Python: EcoPy Alpha Launch! I’m announcing the alpha launch of EcoPy: Ecological Data Analysis in Python.

Multivariate Techniques in Python: EcoPy Alpha Launch!

EcoPy is a Python module that contains a number of techniques (PCA, CA, CCorA, nMDS, MDS, RDA, etc.) for exploring complex multivariate data. For those of you familiar with R, think of this as the Python equivalent to the ‘vegan‘ package. However, I’m not done! This is the alpha launch, which means you should exercise caution before using this package for research.

I’ve stress-tested a couple of simple examples to ensure I get equivalent output in numerous programs, but I haven’t tested it out with real, messy data yet. That said, I need help! Related. Meet Jiphy, the Python-to-JavaScript and JavaScript-to-Python Code Converter. Developer Timothy Crosley has put together a tiny Python module that can go over Python files and convert the code into their analogue JavaScript syntax and vice versa.

Meet Jiphy, the Python-to-JavaScript and JavaScript-to-Python Code Converter

The module, codenamed Jiphy, is not a fully functional Python-to-JavaScript and JavaScript-to-Python compiler that can take fully working applications and migrate them to another platform. As Mr. Crosley puts it, "Jiphy enables Python programmers to more easily write JavaScript code by allowing them to use more familiar syntax, and even JavaScript developers to more easily write Python code. " This allows developers familiar with one language syntax more than with the other to write the code in the syntax they have a better grasp of, and then convert it into the other after they're done.

Python and QRCodes. Few days ago, I decided to try to generate QRCodes.

Python and QRCodes

This article just shows a possibility using Python. Googling for QRCodes generation I found some websites proposing to generate QRCodes for you. The ZXing Generator and the Kaywa Generator seem really powerful and complete, but I was looking for a way of integring QRCode-generation in an piece of software without requiring an Internet access.

Continuing its quest to make Microsoft Azure comfy for the non-Windows world, Microsoft just launched a preview of its Hadoop-based cloud tool (HDInsight) that runs on Linux.

Microsoft embraces Python, Linux in new big data tools

It’s also making its Azure ML machine learning service widely available now with new support for Python as well as the already-planned support for the popular R language. Microsoft bought Revolution Analytics, the company behind a commercial version of R, last month. Azure HDInsight is thus “Microsoft’s first fully Linux-based service for big data,” Joseph Sirosh, Microsoft’s corporate VP of machine learning, said in an interview. Microsoft says 20 percent of all VMs running on Azure run Linux. Asked if he sees any open-source oriented developers still wary of using Microsoft’s cloud, Sirosh said the perception of Microsoft as a Windows-only company is fading.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Microsoft. VIPER Python Internet Of Things Arduino Shield And Design Suite (video) Python-to-C++ compiler promises speedier execution. The more popular the language, the more varied its implementations.

Python-to-C++ compiler promises speedier execution

Python is a classic example, with most of the replacements for its default interpreter written to speed up execution of the language. Among the latest and most intriguing is Nuika. Nuika (open source on GitHub) compiles Python to C++ code, which can then be executed in-place or packaged up as a stand-alone file for redistribution. Unlike some other replacements for existing Python interpreters, it claims full compatibility with all the language constructs in Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, and 3.3. According to the project's lead, Kay Hayen, Nuitka's first milestone -- feature parity with the language -- has already been met. To work its magic, Nuitka requires both a current version of the Python interpreter (2.x or 3.x branch) and a C++ compiler. Another drawback is the creation of stand-alone executables.

Sublime Text is a very powerful programmer’s text editor and popular among web and dynamic language developers (Python, Ruby, JavaScript). The editor is commercial (59 USD), though this is enforced through a nagging dialog only.

Plenty of Sublime Text’s power comes from the fact that Sublime has vibrant community-maintained plugin ecosystem. This blog post is revised from an old Sublime Text 2 blog post how to tune your Sublime Text to be a powerful platform. As the writing of this (March 2014) Sublime Text 3 is in public beta and the plugin development for the older Sublime Text 2 is slowly stalling. The most popular plugins have been ported to Sublime Text 3, so if you are a ST2 user should start considering migration to the new version. Serge-sans-paille/pythran. IPython founder details road map for interactive computing platform.

IPython, for "interactive Python," has been gathering steam as a mechanism for interactive computing and data analysis and visualization. It features the IPython Notebook, which provides a Web-based computational environment that combines code execution, text, mathematics, plots, and rich media. The open source IPython project was invented by Fernando Perez while at the University of Colorado in 2001, and a formal version 1.0 was released last year. Perez, who is a now a research scientist in the Brain Imaging Center at the University of California, Berkeley, sat down with InfoWorld Editor at Large Paul Krill at the recent Strata conference in Silicon Valley to talk about IPython, including its genesis, applications, and a for its future. InfoWorld: What exactly is IPython and what's the main use of it?
