In this post we’re going to study the third-grade algorithm to compute the product of two numbers, and we’re going to compare it with a much more efficient algorithm: The Karatsuba multiplication algorithm.
Did you know that these two algorithms are the ones used in the built in Python multiplication?
We will talk about the Order of both algorithms and give you Python implementations of both of them.
In this post we’ll talk about the Atom editor which is, as they say, A hackable text editor for the 21st Century.
It’s a really nice, open source and modern editor, with a broad community that provides different and new packages and functionalities. Have you tried it yet?
Here, you’ll learn how to install it and how to configure it to write Python code. Let’s start! 🙂
Imagine what would you do if you could automate all the repetitive and boring activities you perform using internet, like checking every day the first results of Google for a given keyword, or download a bunch of files from different websites.
In this post you’ll learn to use Selenium with Python, a Web Scraping tool that simulates a user surfing the Internet. For example, you can use it to automatically look for Google queries and read the results, log in to your social accounts, simulate a user to test your web application, and anything you find in your daily live that it’s repetitive. The possibilities are infinite! 🙂
When running a complex Python program that takes quite a long time to execute, you might want to improve its execution time. But how?
First of all, you need the tools to detect the bottlenecks of your code, i.e. which parts take longer to execute. This way, you can concentrate in speeding these parts first.
And also, you should also control the memory and CPU usage, as it can point you towards new portions of code that could be improved.
Therefore, in this post I’ll comment on 7 different Python tools that give you some insight about the execution time of your functions and the Memory and CPU usage.
Google Analytics is a powerful tool that gives you useful insight about the traffic that arrives in your website. But together with Django, you will be able to retrieve data of your Analytics account and display it to the user, on demand.
In this post you’ll learn how to put together Django, the oauth2 protocol and the Google Analytics API.
Do you want to share a Python script to a friend that doesn’t have Python installed? In this post you’ll learn how 🙂
With the py2app package you can compile a Python script and create a portable Mac application. If you’re using windows, you can check py2exe.
To manage this website, I changed from Blogger to WordPress because I wanted to convert my Blog into a Website. I liked the idea to have structured pages where people could navigate through, and at the same time, maintain the Blog in a subfolder.
In this post, I want to share some WordPress plugins I installed for the website, and that helped me obtain the look and feel that I wanted. For example, a plugin for security aspects, like attempts to enter to your admin site, or a plugin for Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which gives you some tips that improve how search engines see your content.
When you remove a Django Model or a full app in Django, you have to be careful in how you do it, and how the database will be affected.
Thus, in this short post I’ll explain what I do when deleting a model or an app.
In this post you will learn to create a Python script that allows users to enter its Google Analytics account and get information from there.
In order to do that, we will create a Project in the Google Developers Console and authorize it to use the Analytics API.
Next, we will use the Oauth 2.0 protocol to allow users to connect to their Analytics account through our Project.
And finally, we will retrieve the number of sessions of our view, segmented by traffic source.
In this post, you will learn how to set up WordPress in your computer, so that you can develop and test your new features locally, before updating them into your live website.
You will also learn how to clone your live WordPress website into your local server, and how to clone the local WordPress to your live server. All this thanks to the Duplicator plugin.
After reading this post, you’ll be able to migrate your website from one url to another! As you just need to clone your website and install it in your new live server.
