New Features in C# 7

In this article, we’ll look at some of the new language features of C# 7 that will help us write cleaner, less buggy code in a shorter time. Binary literals In C# 6 we can currently represent integers in decimal or hexadecimal formats. int d = 42; int h = 0x2A; In C# 7, we […]

Why You Must Manage Packages in R—and How to Do It

Reproducibility is a critical component of data science. In fact, it’s critical to all research—witness the reproducibility crisis currently engulfing academic research. It equally important in software development. We all expect our applications to work the same way…time after time. Software that operates erratically is undesirable. The unyielding regularly with which computers perform tasks could […]

Is functional programming more effective than object-oriented programming?

Imperative vs functional programming. It’s a debate that goes back to the birth of high-level languages—Fortran vs Lisp. In later years, it was retreaded as object-oriented vs function programming (OOP vs FP)—OOP having become the (massively) dominant software development paradigm. And, I’m a fully paid-up member. I embraced Object Pascal via Delphi 1 on 1995 […]

10 Rules for Creating Reproducible Results in Data Science

In recent years evidence has been mounting that points to a crisis in the reproducible results of scientific research. Reviews of papers in the fields of psychology and cancer biology found that only 40% and 10%, respectively, of the results, could be reproduced. Nature published the results of a survey of researchers in 2016 that […]

Machine Learning using Spark and R

R is ubiquitous in the data science community. Its ecosystem of more than 8,000 packages makes it the Swiss Army knife of modeling applications. Similarly, Apache Spark has rapidly become the big data platform of choice for data scientists. Its ability to perform calculations relatively quickly (due to features like in-memory caching) makes it ideal […]
