Creating a great data science resume I hear a familiar story from a lot of aspiring data scientists: “I have sent out my resume to 25 companies, and I haven’t heard back from any of them! I have pretty good skills, and I think I have a pretty good resume. I don’t know what’s going on!” How to write a CV/Resume - Think Scholarships? Think EastChance.com How to write a Curriculum Vitae (CV) Print the CV on plain-white A4 paper, save some of the same type for the cover letter - did we say that you should never, but never! send a CV without a cover letter - and find matching A4 envelopes.

How to Produce Professional Documents with LaTeX – Michael Elliot King A simple guide to learning LaTeX for formatting your professional documents If you’ve seen a university level math or science assignment, or read something published in an academic journal, then you’ve seen the results of LaTeX and would recognize its fonts and formatting. What is LaTeX (pronounced lay-tek, NOT lay-teks) is a free, digital typesetting system used by professionals to produce beautiful, high-quality, publishable documents, typically in .pdf format. Rather than typing your document into a word processor, like Microsoft Word, your content is written in plain text in a text editor along with code to provide instructions.
Writing An Hadoop MapReduce Program In Python In this tutorial I will describe how to write a simple MapReduce program for Hadoop in the Python programming language. Even though the Hadoop framework is written in Java, programs for Hadoop need not to be coded in Java but can also be developed in other languages like Python or C++ (the latter since version 0.14.1). However, Hadoop’s documentation and the most prominent Python example on the Hadoop website could make you think that you must translate your Python code using Jython into a Java jar file. Obviously, this is not very convenient and can even be problematic if you depend on Python features not provided by Jython. Extracting metadata from pdfs - comparing EndNote,Mendeley,Zotero & WizFolio Note :This was blogged in July 2010, since then most of the reference managers have improved substantially so the information here can be considered outdated. Interest in reference managers is increasing due to the increased competition in the area. Martin Fenner is pretty well known for among many things his reference manager overview , while Owen Stephens over in the UK has organized two conferences so far with the title "Innovations in Reference Management"
Side-by-side content in beamer presentations « LaTeX Matters There are two ways (and possibly more) to place content side-by-side in a beamer presentation, the columns and the minipage environments. The first is a beamer-specific environment and is therefore only available in a beamer presentation. Whereas the latter has other applications and is available in all document-classes.
Machine Learning vs. Natural Language Processing, part 1 - Lexalytics (Note: Updated July 2, 2015) What is Machine Learning?

Organizing and pre-writing Writing series Seven stages of writing assignments Prewriting exercises provide key words, meaning, and structureto your research before you write your first draft, and may help you overcome "writers block."

Top four LaTeX mistakes Here are four of the most common typesetting errors I see in books and articles created with LaTeX. 1) Quotes Quotation marks in LaTeX files begin with two back ticks, ``, and end with two single quotes, ''. The first “Yes” was written as ``Yes.'' in LaTeX while the one with the backward opening quote was written as
A Guide to Python Frameworks for Hadoop - Cloudera Engineering Blog I recently joined Cloudera after working in computational biology/genomics for close to a decade. My analytical work is primarily performed in Python, along with its fantastic scientific stack. It was quite jarring to find out that the Apache Hadoop ecosystem is primarily written in/for Java. So my first order of business was to investigate some of the options that exist for working with Hadoop from Python. In this post, I will provide an unscientific, ad hoc review of my experiences with some of the Python frameworks that exist for working with Hadoop, including: Hadoop Streamingmrjobdumbohadoopypydoopand others
The 10 Types of Writers’ Block (and How to Overcome Them) #4 was a really common event in my undergrad screenwriting classes (where it was commonly called the Page 70 Problem or the Act 2 Dead Zone or some other ridiculous name). It is really where outlining-as-you-go can prevent problems. For instance, I might have a ten point outline for the whole story and as I catch up to various points I may go back over the outline and flesh out points with another outline. If a scene is really tricky, my outline might be as specific as three points for five pages.
