Optimizing TensorFlow for your laptop

If you don’t have access to a server with a cutting-edge GPU, it’s worth building TensorFlow from scratch on your laptop or desktop Mac, to squeeze more performance out of its CPU.


Kale: timeseries data mining at Etsy

Etsy loves metrics. Everything that happens in our data centres gets recorded, graphed and stored. But with over a million metrics flowing in constantly, it’s hard for any team to keep on top of all that information. Graphing and alerting don’t scale well, so we’ve started the Kale project, to help make sense of all those time series.


All your Bayes are belong to us! PyMC, PyStan and emcee in Snake Charmer

PyMC is the most widely-used Python package for Bayesian modelling, learning and inference. But there are loads of other tools out there that may be better fitted to your particular task. I’ve added two of them to Snake Charmer so you can try them for yourself.


Snake Charmer: the all-in-one data science toolbox for Python 3

Wouldn’t it be great if you could magic up an IPython Notebook server, complete with SciPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, PyMC, scikit-learn, R and Octave integration, and much much more, just by typing one command? And wouldn’t it be even better if you could do that from pretty much any Windows, Mac or Linux machine, and know that you’d get the exact same environment every time? That’s Snake Charmer — a virtual data workbench that’s reproducible, portable, shareable and up-to-date.
