  • PyCon ES 2019 Alicante Highlights

    Last weekend it was Pycon time again, my 6th one so far. This time closer to home: Alicante.

    I had an awesome time, meeting a lot of nice people, watching interesting talks and getting inspired overall to keep learning more Python.

  • Python for NLP: Neural Machine Translation with Seq2Seq in Keras

    This is the 22nd article in my series of articles on Python for NLP. In one of my previous articles on solving sequence problems with Keras, I explained how to solve many to many sequence problems where both inputs and outputs are divided over multiple time-steps. The seq2seq architecture is a type of many-to-many sequence modeling, and is commonly used for a variety of tasks such as Text-Summarization, chatbot development, conversational modeling, and neural machine translation, etc.

    In this article, we will see how to create a language translation model which is also a very famous application of neural machine translation. We will use seq2seq architecture to create our language translation model using Python's Keras library.

    It is assumed that you have good knowledge of recurrent neural networks, particularly LSTM. The code in this article is written in Python with the Keras library. Therefore, it is assumed that you have good knowledge of the Python language, as well as the Keras library. So, without any further ado, let's begin.

  • Find the position of the only odd number within a list with Python

    In this example, we will write a python function that will return the position of the only odd number within the number list. If there is no odd number within that list then the function will return -1 instead.

How GNOME uses Git

“What’s your GitLab?” is one of the first questions I was asked on my first day working for the GNOME Foundation—the nonprofit that supports GNOME projects, including the desktop environment, GTK, and GStreamer. The person was referring to my username on GNOME’s GitLab instance. In my time with GNOME, I’ve been asked for my GitLab a lot. We use GitLab for basically everything. In a typical day, I get several issues and reference bug reports, and I occasionally need to modify a file. I don’t do this in the capacity of being a developer or a sysadmin. I’m involved with the Engagement and Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) teams. I write newsletters for Friends of GNOME and interview contributors to the project. I work on sponsorships for GNOME events. I don’t write code, and I use GitLab every day. Read more

NordPy: An Open-Source Linux Client for NordVPN

NordVPN is a personal VPN software with the main focus on protecting user privacy and granting them access to regionally restricted content. It features a strong encryption protocol with a no-log policy and works with north of 5700 servers in at least 60 countries. It is available for Linux, Windows, macOS, AndroidTV, Android, iOS and NAS platforms. It can also be manually set up on WiFi routers. NordVPN is one of the most recommended VPN services and while it continues to receive positive reviews from customers, developers are beginning to dedicate some time to it and this is how NordPy has come to be. NordPy is an open-source GUI client for Linux users who like NordVPN and it inherits all the features in the official NordVPN applications. Its feature list includes connection to OpenVPN or NetworkManager-OpenVPN via TCP and UDP, no DNS leak when using OpenVPN, Read more
