If you are a developer or a Data Scientist or someone who uses GitHub for different projects, here is something very interesting for you. As we all know, first impression counts, so why not build an attractive GitHub profile that summarises your technical experience and expertise.

What makes this article special is, not just it guides you creating the GitHub profile but also it includes the four very special lessons that I learnt while working on it. …

What is a Virtual Environment?

A virtual environment is a tool that helps to keep dependencies required by different projects separate by creating isolated Python virtual environments for them

Why is it important?

Python “Virtual Environments” allow Python packages to be installed in an isolated location for a particular application, rather than being installed globally.

When do we need a Virtual Environment?

Imagine you have an application that needs version 1 of LibFoo, but another application requires version 2. How can you use both these applications? If you install everything into /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages …

Working on a project entirely remote on a browser is liberating. Virtual Studio (VS) Code, one of the best open-source code editors (managed by Microsoft) facilitates running it on a remote server directly through a browser. Here you will find, how?


1. You need to have wget

wget is used for downloading content from URLs. It’s a quick and simple non-interactive tool for downloading files from any publicly accessible URL.

wget takes a remote resource from a URL and saves it to a specified location on your computer

  • In case if you do not have a preinstalled wget, you will need to first install homebrew (missing…

Track the flow of COVID-19

The world has stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the global economy has crumbled and people after some mental struggle, have adopted the new normal. Meanwhile, I wanted to explore the COVID-19 data. Therefore, I thought why not try to plot the COVID-19 data in a map and see how it has progressed.

Here I have shown how we can make an interactive map using the Plotly in python. With this article, you can learn how to use Plotly for creating an interactive plot, and you can also see how the new COVID-19 cases changed every day by country.

— How will the market recover from the COVID-19 recession?

The current situation of the Coronavirus effect can be understood with the analogy of flood. The current situation is no different than a flood. When it comes, it takes away whatever comes in its way. The immediate casualties happen in the form of human life and life gets stuck within the flood effected region (Here you can argue about the rescue plan but I am not going into that yet). …

Today is Saturday and it’s the fourteenth day of my self-quarantine. I woke up a bit late and I got the news that the IMF has declared, we are in a recession now. I open my Mac. As I open it, the first thing that came in my mind is to watch the latest updates of the financial market and related news. I was being lazy and there comes the father of all evil, an idea. An idea to automate the process of (1) opening youtube, (2) start typing (worst thing for a morning mood) and (3) Click on Search…

Google Colab is a recent tool by Google, released in order to make Deep Learning dedicated computation highly accessible. It is free and continuously developing.

Since I like to work at a time and place of my preference, therefore, I prefer to have all the import things of my life available in cloud. And, I must say, Cloud is…

If you are an Indian citizen with one of the European Economic Area Country’s resident permit and if you are travelling to one of the European (Union) Airports to India but transiting through Heathrow airport, you might get confused about the transit visa.

There is a good news for you.

Here are three main points you need to check:

  1. If you hold an European Resident Permit
  2. If you will not collect your bags and check them in to your onward flight
  3. If your onward flight leaves on the same calendar day when you arrive at the airport.

If you fulfil…

This article is kind of a note of Deep Learning Course by Andrew Ng, lecture 3. This has been written mainly for personal use but also considering could be useful to others. Since the lecture is 1 hour and 18 minutes long, I decided to make a note of it rather than going back to the video again and again. It is highly recommended that you watch the video in case if you feel you need clarification over any point.

The problem setup:

Let’s say you want to build a Voice Activated Device that gets activated when you call a…
