By request of Julia Evans (tweet) to the world, I am writing about what I’m working on right now.
As the tweets were posted I was in the middle of facilitating Py-CU‘s weekly open hours. The discussion threads were:
- Attempting to help someone get Python 2.7 going within Anaconda3 so he could use computer vision packages in Jupyter Notebooks. Windows. Pain. Unresolved.
- Chatting with a programming newbie about resources and common problems humanities students having when first learning how to code.
- Awesome nerd out over text and code editors.
- Listening to a BB-8 build group yell at a robot to test voice commands.
- Listening to a 3D printer choke to death on Darth Vader printer.
- Me ranting about the crazy train that chapter 11 of R for Everyone went on.
I was working on:
- Writing a tool to auto-generate a bunch of CSVs with fake data.
- In order to have test data to build an auto-documentation tool.
- And attempting to figure out how to slam this JSON file into a sqlite3 database.
- I just wrote data[‘files’][data[‘files’].keys()].keys().
- Rethinking life choices.
- Musing over my book review notes for R for Everyone.
- Resisting the urge to get R for Everyone out of my bag because I need to finish this class project.
Things near the top of my stack:
- Finishing an XPath tutorial.
- Finishing R for Everyone.
- Planning how I would code up some data for a analytics project for work.
- Thinking about my summer learning stack once I GRADUATE in May and am FREE.
