#challenge"Code a Kickflip!"

  • TLDR; Some lessons I learned from Tony Hawk on how to grow and inspire the programming community around you in a fun and organic way!
  • I am always looking for inspiration about how to do this, and I wanted to share my insights from this video series about how we can create a positive atmosphere for other developers to grow in fun ways!
  • Challenges can be made in a way that they inspire individuals to grow personally and in a community regardless of whether they succeed or not.
  • I recently met a developer at a Meetup in Berlin who felt so bad about failing a coding challenge that she stopped applying for jobs.
  • Tony's actions of challenging skaters, giving them high fives, and riding with younger skaters helped grow the skating community much more than just giving autographs.

TypeScript is more than you think

  • When we think about any language, we consider values, variables, expressions, operators, functions.
  • Note issue with saying that these are local variables is in a fact that we can ruin our type behavior from outside by setting those arguments like AreEqual<1, 1, 1, false, false>.
  • Function is checking if the value of the property has given type, if yes, its saying true, if not, it does the recursive call to itself if the property is also an object.
  • The language is capable of conditions, looping recursion, lets try to use those tools in order to transform types.
  • TypeScript type system TSts is something which should be considered as fully flavored language, it has all the things any language should have, we have variables, functions, conditions, iterations, recursion, we can compose, we can write sophisticated transformations.

Quick and easy model evaluation with Yellowbrick

  • For instance, I have my own code for visualizing feature importances or producing a color-scaled confusion matrix that I copy from project to project, but Yellowbrick lets me quickly and easily produce an attractive plot in fewer lines of code.
  • For this little case study, I’m going to fit a Random Forest classifier to the UCI wine dataset, then use a barplot to visualize the importance of each feature for prediction.
  • Note that I instantiated the model with the same number of estimators and random state as the one above, so the feature importance values should be exactly the same.
  • Now if I really wanted to duplicate the Yellowbrick plot in Matplotlib, I would also need to supply the colors and the x-tick labels, as well as remove the horizontal grid lines.
  • Example 1: A color-coded confusion matrix (using the same wine data and Random Forest model as above).

Fraidycat is a fantastic new app for keeping tabs on your favorite internet gems

  • It often involves using RSS readers, Twitter lists, YouTube and Twitch channel notifications, and all-too-frequent email inbox refreshing, among dozens of other methods for staying on top of your favorite internet oddities and sifting through all the junk to find them.
  • I also like a lot of specific Instagram accounts related to the hobby, but there’s no easy way to gather a custom Instagram feed on the web in a way similar to a Twitter list that makes it easy to jump to new posts and check in your favorite accounts.
  • It’s really neat, and I’m already finding it a much more deliberate and less distracting way of surfing the modern web that doesn’t just involve me mindlessly refreshing social feeds and closing and opening various browser tabs like a rat in a maze.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea shares how his rocky, 'unconventional' childhood shaped his career

  • In our conversation, Flea shares how the relationship he had with his mom affected future relationships, why his stepfather was a blessing and a curse, why he views his friends as his family, how vulnerability has been his strength, and his best career advice.
  • I looked for love in romantic relationships in a way that came from a place of not feeling affectionate and close to my mother.
  • We're all yearning for connection, whether it's an intimate one-on-one relationship or a sense of community or just that feeling of togetherness and people being there for each other.
  • The willingness to be vulnerable and still express yourself and open yourself up to being hurt in a romantic relationship, a friendship relationship, a creative relationship, any collaborative effort of any kind takes courage, but it's where all love is.

The internet melted down over Yorkshire Tea because of Brexit

  • Stearns writes in his book Shame: A Brief History: “An impressive variety of regions, from ancient Egypt onward, displayed people who had misbehaved—from mischievous students who had not done their lessons to adults accused of adultery—in some form of public stocks, where for a few hours, even a few days, the general public could walk past and express their disgust.” (Remind you of anything?) Even so, he writes, because of shame’s power, some people either figured out ways to be welcomed back into their communities or to avoid it in the first place.
  • Last weekend, Yorkshire Tea found itself at the center of a thoroughly modern phenomenon: its brand was inadvertently associated with politics that a large number of people dislike; a group of people formed on Twitter who might not normally band together but shared the same feelings about Brexit; angry posts were tweeted as a way to shame the brand into saying something in line with the group’s views; the conflict went viral; and here you are now.

8 ways to give your grandkids money without sacrificing your retirement savings

  • And since the whole point of paying into a life insurance policy is to make sure loved ones are financially provided for in your absence, setting a grandchild as your policy's beneficiary is a no-brainer.
  • As Amorello noted, changes like this one affect income and estate planning across the board, so keeping abreast of them now can help your family avoid a scramble of research and fact-finding during what will already be a traumatic time.
  • Establishing a trust fund is a legal way to avoid — or at least defer — taxes, and it can be stocked with a whole range of assets, including real estate, business interests, and even life insurance policies.
  • Amorello specifically recommends a trust for situations where a gradual payout over time might be more ideal than a lump-sum inheritance, like to a grandchild who has struggled with money management in the past.
