Want to learn how to setup a programming environment for Python using open source tools? Then read on! Over the last 20 years or so I have drifted in and out of different Python programming fads. In hindsight, it is clear there is no "default" setup. Folks stumble accidentally into different configurations, post about it, … Continue reading Setting Up a Python Programming Environment

Running Scripts at Startup


And other Linux delights. Often there is a need to configure processes to start on startup and to restart on failure. On Linux systems this process is controlled via the systemd init system and system manager. Now, as with most things Linux, there are a lot of sources of information out there.

Understanding Convolution in Tensorflow

This is a quick post intended to help those trying to understand convolution as applied in Tensorflow. There are many good blog posts on the Internet explaining convolution as applied in convolutional neural networks (CNNs), e.g. see this one by Denny Britz. However, understanding the theory in one thing, knowing how to implement it is … Continue reading Understanding Convolution in Tensorflow
