Sci/Tech

And Julia is a big deal — it’s a free alternative to proprietary tools for doing data science, like MathWorks’ MATLAB and Wolfram’s Mathematica, and it’s more contemporary than open-source languages R and Python.

  • Minimap coming to the gedit text editor

  • Bitacora: personas

    When designing a product/service, it is hard to agree on what a user is, specially in engineering environments. In marketing/product environments, in general is in the DNA of those involved in product design to differentiate buyers from consumers (users). Market segmentation is understood by default. In my experience, this is not always the case in engineering environments.

Critical Apps Missing From Linux

Linux
Software

Most people believe that moving from Windows to Linux isn't possible because it lacks critical software and tools they need. Perhaps in some limited instances they're right, but I believe the bigger challenge is making sure critical workflows remain intact.

  • A Small Python Project (coursera-dl) Activites

    Lately, I have been dedicating a lot of my time (well, at least compared to what I used to) to Free Software projects. In particular, I have spent a moderate amount of time with two projects written in Python.

Technology, the law and you: Open-source software

But “free as in beer” isn’t really the point – huge numbers of corporate open-source users opt for paid commercial versions of open-source projects, for simplicity and support.
