Python Data Science Handbook is a fantastic and in-depth data science book that is entirely available online. For free! It covers NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, and Scikit-Learn. jakevdp.github.io/PythonData… Thanks to @jakevdp for making this great book free.

🥳 Am excited to share that we have released github.dev: a completely in-browser @github+@code editing tool. You can even *run* @ProjectJupyter notebooks with the entire #Python data science stack, using the #Pyodide extension (marketplace.visualstudio.com…)! cc @jakevdp

New carnivorous plant species confirmed! I love the experiment they used to confirm this: fed Nitrogen-15 isotopes to fruit flies, stuck the flies to the stem of the plant, and later found the same isotopes in the plant itself. npr.org/2021/08/09/102609119…

You can barely see it through the trees, but the observatory dome is still there at what is currently the campus of Community Day School

When you see a library that's a work of love, you can immediately tell. I've learned a lot from Scikit-learn in the past (Keras has many elements inspired by it) and I think I can learn a lot from JAX in the future

Did an overnight trip with a friend this weekend to visit one of the few places where the carnivorous Cobra Lily grows wild. These plants are spectacular
