@NellyTadi @Jayydubby @Patrick01_Codes So sorry for the delay guys;

So, today i am going to be talking about regexs or regular expressions and how formulate them in 2 programming languages. We are going to start with the basics and from there we will look at the meta syntax combinations that come together to make... possible to perform matches on strings (matching sequences) using patterns (formed by meta characters / meta syntax).

Regular Expressions are sequence of characters that define a pattern that is always finite, unambiguous or unaffected by context.

Why You Should Start Learning Python.

If you like process automation, researching, machine learning, AI, modelling etc...!

You don't need to be a "programmer" before you learn python. You can start today.

What is #Python Programming Language?

Python is a general purpose programming language. Released in 1991.

Python's design philosophy emphasizes code readability with its notable use of significant whitespace.

Its popularity is particularly important in the data science and AI/machine learning fields.
1. Python is easy to learn.

It is good for beginner and you don't really need to worry about functions, datatype and syntax like C/Java etc.

Python is English-like in nature, in fact if you can speak English Language you can write Python 😝😝

Vamos a ver. ¿Cómo se hace un hilo? Estudié física en México hasta la maestría. De ahí crucé el charco para hacer el doctorado en la Universidad de Valencia, España, especializándome en astrofísica. Ahora mismo me encuentro en #Purdue para hacer un posdoc en astrofísica.
Llegué aquí con la beca de @Conacyt_MX para estancias posdoctorales en el extranjero. Tuve un primer año muy productivo. Escribí un código en #fortran e interfaz en #python para evolucionar una distribución de partículas relativistas y monitorear la radiación que estas producían
La finalidad de este código era simular #blazars y #GRB afterglows…

Del modelo para los #blazars se escribió un proyecto con el que se consiguió apoyo del telescopio #FermiLAT de la #NASA. Del de #GRB hay un artículo en camino.

A thread about @AcademicChatter and how it works (1/14)
This account exists to facilitate communication, friendship, & support for those working in academia (particularly PhD students and ECR's). Most retweets are automated, though an increasing amount of activity is me @waterlego (Jonathan) (2/14)
The account searches for tweets containing certain academic hashtags and if it finds one, it shares it. After each search the app goes to sleep for approx 10 mins (no activity). When it wakes up it searches again. It does this non-stop (3/14)

Hey all, I’m doing a weekly twitter standup, mostly for myself. But if you or anyone else would like to join, feel free to ping me. I’m thinking a weekly basis won’t be too time consuming. Pick a day of the week, and I’ll @ you to remind you. #weeklytwitterstandup
Did last week:
✅ finally built script to track usage of my servers. It’s a python script uploaded to AWS lambda. The script pings my half-dozen servers for data usage and writes the data onto 1) a MySQL server hosted on AWS RDS, 2) BigQuery database, and 3) google sheets
✅ built a dashboard on server usage data using Tableau public. I now have the dashboard scrolling on my Life Flips app.

Hi #development Twitter & #GCDigital. I'm thinking of creating a gentle #Python-based learning session on how applications work for senior executives. I need your help. Yellow sign -
My hypothesis == w/ hands-on practice of some simple programming fundamentals, senior folks can better understand modern applications, how they are developed & work + the value of #opensource. Maybe some agile.
This, in turn, leads to understanding the art of the possible, better questions on work being done, potentially practical support for building broader #programming & #DataScience capacity in their organizations & more open access to #opensource tools.

#neuroimaging folks, we really need a high-quality #python package or Class to read and work with volumetric and surface atlases. Atlases are central to our work and are still not first class objects!!

I proposed aspects of this few years ago for nilearn:…
I’m trying to deal with different atlases for #graynet :

And it’s not as clean and beautiful as I’d like it to be so far.

Happy to collaborate and work with others to achieve niatlas package.
Atlases shouldn’t be handled on a per-tool or per-ecosystem basis, and we really need a nibabel-like tool dedicated to atlases, with high interoperability across various popular tools.

#Jupyter & #Python people of Twitter, let me know what you think of this:
- Using Jupytext to have my notebooks in percent format, and still be able to work on them as normal notebooks.
- In the code, I have defined classes and functions I might want to import somewhere else

I'm deeply disappointed in @DataCamp leadership, and cannot, in good conscience, recommend it to my students. Questionable ethics at tech companies are sadly common, but it hits especially close to home when it happens at an education company that I worked with & promoted. (1/5)
This means:
1. My @Coursera course no longer offers option for #rstats labs via @DataCamp.This years-long collaboration represents hard work by @DukeLearning+DataCamp staff to provide browser-based R access for thousands of learners,fruits of this effort will now go unused(2/5)
2. I'm working w/ @jo_hardin47+@BaumerBen+Andrew Bray to make our course content available elsewhere.Meanwhile, don’t take these courses on DataCamp. As @noamross put it so well “We can't change behavior without incentives, and for companies those incentives are financial."(3/5)

Little story about biases in technologies. Before I joined @wavesplatform, I thought that #scala is a very complex, non-obvious and little supported programming language, there is too much magic and you can draw ascii emojis with special characters in your code.
I heard and read a lot about troubles with #scala, and it looked reasonable. But as I dived in it (thanks to @wavesplatform deva and scala courses by @BinaryDistrict), I began to realize that these "troubles" are only my (and people in my bubble) biases.
In fact, scala is like any other popular languages with its own advantages and disadvantages. Same like #Java, #Javascript, #TypeScript, #Python in which I wrote before.

#Java's death will be due to SEO mess, lack of centralized docs, outdated tutorials & no one-stop-shop place to find it all


This site was supposed to be the answer, but it only raises even more questions. The information here is mostly marketing-related, and has pointers to other online locations, outside

Potential: very high.
Reality: waste of TLD.

The Java source, no doubt. Yet, devs who want to just learn/code Java apps will only find binaries downloads. Nothing else serves the average Java software developer. "Developer's Guide" is for contributors.

Potential: high.
Reality: confusion.

(1/n) Excited that final version of work led by @D4N__ studying evolutionary repeatability and collateral sensitivity is out. #mathevo #clecliniccancer… @CCLRI @NatureComms @CWRUSOM
(2/n) This collab between @CompSciOxford @CCLRI @CWRUSOM & @MoffittPSOC is an extension of @D4N__ ‘s initial theory paper that proposed ‘steering evolution’ as a method of extending the use of existing drugs to control infection. #AntibioticResistance…
(3/n) using the fitness landscape metaphor, we reasoned that instances of collateral sensitivity need not be repeatable, as evolutionary branch points could lead to multiple peaks - which could have different sensitivity profiles.

I’ve had a lovely few days of doing NOTHING work related! I hope you have had some relaxation too.

BUT I do want to tell you about the “full stack” requirements of this AWESOME job that you should apply for to work with me & @AutisticaUK at @turinginst!…
Here are some screen grabs from the job ad that talk about what you need.... the essential requirements.
I was nervous writing this ad. It’s asking for A LOT to have someone join an academic project for a salary of between £34,000 and £40,000 if they can do ALL the #FullStack development! There are lots of jobs that would pay you a lot more!!

I found this story buried on pages 110-111 of Save the Children's annual 990 filing with the IRS.…
I had a little bit of help from #Python and IRS data. The IRS is now making electronically filed 990s available in electronic form.…
So I wrote a program a while ago to download all the 990s and flag ones that reported a major "diversion of assets."

✨🧠 The ecosystem that has grown up around @TensorFlow in the last few years blows my mind. There's just so much functionality, compared to some of the other, newer frameworks.

👉Consider this an ever-expanding thread for me to take notes + wrap my brain around products. Ready?
1) @TensorFlow Extended (TFX)

It's no secret that I 💕 #TFX and all of its tooling for deploying machine learning models into production. If you care about keeping your models up-to-date and monitoring them, you should check out the product + its paper.
2) @TensorFlow Hub

If you want to train your model on a small data set, or improve generalization, you'll need to use something called transfer learning. #TFHub modules make it easy—and are available in an #OSS marketplace:

Let's try something interesting ...I call it #socialLearning. I post a #DataScience topic and you tell me interesting things you know about it.!!
In python we are able to unpack sequences (think lists, tuples etc..) into variables

👋 Hi, friends! A couple of folks DM-ed asking about the difference between @GoogleColab and @GoogleCloud #DataLab.

📒 Both services are built with @ProjectJupyter, and look kinda similar; and both are useful for data exploration! - but that is the extent of the overlap. (1/n)
✨📒 @GoogleColab doesn’t require any setup or other @Google products to be used; though notebooks are stored on @GoogleDrive.

It’s intended primarily for interactive use- which means some long-running background processes may be stopped. It currently only supports Python. (2/n)
✨👩‍🔬#DataLab is also free to use; but allows you to analyze data using @GoogleCloud resources. You can take full advantage of scalable services such as #BigQuery and Cloud ML Engine to analyze, manipulate and visualize data.

📊 Python, SQL, and JavaScript are supported. (3/n)

Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.

THREAD - How about a bunch of blog posts on #Space and #Astronomy? Yes, I have more than you can imagine - especially since these are really just #physics topics. Hold on - because this is going to be a bit large.
2/ Here is an answer to my fav astronomy question EVER - "What would the phases of the moon look like if the moon was a cube?"…
3/ The great thing about the cube moon question is that it really tests if students understand phases of the moon rather than just recalling factual stuff. Here is my python model of a cube and spherical moon
