PyCon SK 2019

Last time I've written about PyCon was in in 2016, when it came to Slovakia for the first time. I have attended every year since, and if I was impressed then, I have to say each subsequent year was better than the one before it. It always covers a bevy of topics, from Python to machine learning, various projects people are working on, best practices in architecture, social and societal impacts of technology (people from slovensko.digital always make an appearance) and more. I especially appreciate the tracks about teaching and education, since that topic interests me a lot and,...

csv-to-sqlite - copying from CSV files to a SQLite database

I’m not exactly an avid tweeter, but I couldn’t resist: It was obvious immediately after entering #PyConSK that I hadn't seen this many nerds in one place in quite a while. I've missed it. — zblesk (@zblesk) March 11, 2016 That was prompted by...

WinPython doesn't start?

I ran across PyBrain, a “modular machine learning library for Python.” It needs the whole Scientific Python stack and since setting it up manually seemed like a pain, I decided to try one of the pre-packaged distributions. I tried more of them with little success. WinPython looked the best, but didn’t work on the two computers I tried it on, regardless of version or bitness. When I tried running the WinPython Control Panel, Spyder or IPython, the program either just didn’t start (the first one) or briefly flashed a console window without anything useful in it and died...
