  • 2019-03-02 @AdamChainz: #python tip: taking the first item of a list comprehension is better done as next() on its generator version, to avoid creating the whole list In [1]: [x for x in range(100) if x > 10][0] # okay Out[1]: 11 In [2]: next(x for x in range(100) if x > 10) # better Out[2]: 11

  • 2019-03-07 @_wilfredh: The thing about memory ownership is that it’s intrinsic (not incidental) complexity on a physical computer. If you don’t want GC, you need ownership. Not all languages provide ownership tooling though (e.g. C). Following Rust’s success I suspect we’ll see more ownership tools. https://t.co/CCmCnX381M

  • 2019-03-09 @randomjohn: @abmathewks Part of it is legacy systems, part is the mystique surrounding “validated systems”, and part is the fact that SAS instituted certification a long time ago and enabled people to build careers around this one piece of software.
  • 2019-03-09 @kjhealy: BTW if you’re scatterplotting two scaled variables, then you can use ggforce’s geom_circle() to e.g. draw circles to show which observations are within 1 and 2 standard deviations of the mean. Use coord_fixed() to make sure the circles stay circular when drawn. https://t.co/R8mKU2tx7p

  • 2019-03-19 @f2harrell: Wonder how a #machinelearning algorithm can cross-validate (CV) when the sample size can’t support the number of candidate predictive features?
