It's not just you.

This is the norm, not the exception

There are a number of reasons why this happens.

Here are some of them…
You may be learning a topic a bit too early.

Ok, Ok, Ok, you've all convinced me. Now I just need to stop playing the game, and start writing the article.

A quick introduction: I used to be a physicist, which is where I learnt coding.

As a university academic, coding and teaching were both things I enjoyed.

#coding #python
I always felt that explaining abstract and complex concepts in an accessible way was something I'm good at.

My undergrad students agreed…

And now, so do my coding students, young and, er, not so young…

#teaching #learning
Now I spend my time:
—> running @codetoday_
—> teaching coding to kids & adults
—> writing articles and books on #coding and #Python
—> creating and running Python courses and workshops (coming soon…)

Here's The White Room analogy in brief:

I call the computer program Monty.

Monty is the one who’s busy doing things, performing all the actions required in your computer program.
But Monty/the computer program needs some infrastructure to be able to operate.

This infrastructure is the White Room: an empty room with white walls and white ceilings–a blank canvas.

In Python, you can visualize images with the Plotly IMshow function.


#Python #pythonlearning #datascience #datavisualization

You can use Plotly IMshow for a few uses.

You can use it to plot heatmaps ...

But you can also use it to plot images.

The syntax for Plotly IMshow is pretty simple.

You call the function as px.imshow and then provide the name of the image file you want to visualize.

(This assumes you've imported Plotly express as px)
