I’m thinking about putting another bathroom in my basement.

I currently live in a nice but relatively modest house. Four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a mostly finished basement. Three of the bedrooms and both full bathrooms reside in the second floor of the house, and the fourth bedroom (which we use as a guest bedroom) is two levels below in the basement. As you can guess, this is less than convenient for guests who want to shower at their convenience and privacy. Fortunately, there is a rough-in for a full bathroom in the basement, which would totally…

RASPBERRY PI + IPAD

Installing tools on your Raspberry Pi ranging from Docker to Git to JupyterHub

Welcome back, folks! We’re back again with our third and possibly final post in enabling a Raspberry Pi to work with an iPad Pro for data science work. If you’ve been following along so far, then you will already be able to connect the Raspberry Pi to your iPad Pro with a direct USB-C to USB-C connection. In case you missed those first two posts that have gotten us tho this point, here they are again:

In this post, we’re going to cover getting all our data…

Raspberry Pi + iPad

Walking you through the set up to have the iPad Pro and Raspberry Pi talk to each other via a hardline USB-C connection

Hello again, friends! We’re back again with the next post in our series in using a Raspberry Pi as a “computational DS accessory” for use with the iPad Pro. In case you missed the first post, please check it out via the link below as this post will build on top of that first one:

At the end of our first post, we had just gotten the Raspberry Pi’s OS initialized and working with a hardwired monitor/keyboard/mouse. You setup might currently look something like this:

Raspberry Pi + iPad

Getting you going for iPad + Pi work from unboxing to OS initialization!

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the state of being able to perform data science activities on an iPad Pro. While I was truly surprised to see how far Apple has come in recent years, we still aren’t 100% to the point that somebody can ditch their laptop to solely do things on an iPad. I personally would love this to happen just because I love using my iPad for literally everything else, from graphic design to using the screen for my piano sheet music.

As I quote from my last post:

Because iOS isn’t a traditional…

Using the MLflow server client to programmatically interact with your content in MLflow

Hello there all! Long time, no see, right? My previous post in this series was published all the way back in October 2020, which is coincidentally the time when a ton of new video games rolled out. Because I write these posts in my free time, I clearly was using my free time for other things. 😂

This will be the fourth and likely final post in our MLflow 101 series. It’s been a great ride, but all good things must come to an end. …

Office Hours

Helping you optimize your workflow by organizing your everyday practices

In my day job as a machine learning engineer (MLE), I juggle quite a few balls. I support several models in production, actively work on many new modeling efforts, participate as an admin for our area’s regular “skills team meeting”, and serve as my MLE team’s scrum master. I’m always the guy to say “yes” to any request and am more than glad to help a teammate stuck on something.

What might surprise you is that I would not consider myself a very busy person.

Don’t get me wrong, I keep busy all the time. (If my manager is reading…

Checking out some apps to support your data science learning path on an iPad

I. Love. My iPad. Ever since its launch in 2010, I had to have one. Back then, I was still a poor college student, so I had to save a hefty penny to save up for my first one. And I did not regret getting it, even though you really couldn’t do much on it.

In my opinion, the iPad is unquestionably the best consumption machine. Whether it be watching your favorite show on Netflix or browsing the web, the iPad is the best personal large screen experience that isn’t a full blown laptop. …

Yes, folks, I am back! I’ve been away from blogging for some time, and item #4 on this list will explain why. As we wind down an undoubtedly difficult year, I thought it would be good to share one final post to focus on some positivity I personally experienced in 2020.

Of course, I do not want to diminish how difficult this year was for many people, including myself. I personally had a very difficult time adjusting to the whole “work from home” thing, and my grandmother also passed away just a few short weeks ago. So I’m not going…

Hello there, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve written a more business-oriented post given that I’ve been focused on more data science / machine learning-related stuff. But as I begin to type this, it’s 2:00am on a Thursday, and I woke up randomly inspired to write this post. (Can’t remember what I was dreaming about, but it must have been along these lines!)

One of the areas of life in which I’m most passionate is this idea of persuasion psychology. In my own words, persuasion psychology is the idea that humans are deeply irrational beings and thus behave in…
