7 essential VS Code extensions for Python developers in 2021

We listed the best VS extensions for JS developers. Now it’s time we do so for the Python community. I’m a PyCharm user and I won’t probably be changing editors anytime soon, but with all the hype around VS Code and so many people over Reddit and Twitter suggesting me the switch, I had to try it. My VS Code experience was amazing, and even though my heart still belongs to PyCharm, VS Code is a fantastic product, I can 100% recommend. It’s customizable, fast, and with a ton of extensions that mak...

Building a Better Mousetrap

Recently, my daughter (age 6) was into building “mousetraps” out of shoe boxes. These were more or less comfortable cardboard mouse houses complete with beds, rooms, everything a mouse could want or need and not actually be trapped. That got me wondering, how could I involve her and her older sister (age 8) in making a real mousetrap and get them exposed to some STEM concepts? Enter the Raspberry Pi! If you are not familiar with what a Raspberry Pi is, it is a small, inexpensive, single boar...

Resize images using Python

I love Python, and I[he]#039[/he]ve been learning it for a while now. Some time ago, I wrote a Python script where I needed to resize a bunch of images while at the same time keeping the aspect ratio (the proportions) intact. So I looked around and found Pillow, a Python imaging library and "friendly fork" of an old library just called PIL.

A beginner’s guide to data visualization with Python and Seaborn

Data visualization is a technique that allows data scientists to convert raw data into charts and plots that generate valuable insights.

However, when working with raw data that requires transformation and a good playground f...

ARM Wrestling Its Way Into Mainstream Software Development

Nearly all smart phones have been running ARM-based processors for years. They provide superior power for the amount of power consumed, and thus extend battery life. With Apple’s recent release of the Apple Silicon M1 chip for the Mac Mini, MacBook Air, and 13″ MacBook Pro, they have catapulted ARM processors out of your pocket and onto your desk (or into your lap). This is exciting for “normal” users — software compiled for ARM is blazing fast, and even Intel-based software runs faster when...

Study Finds Brain Activity of Coders Isn't Like Language or Math (slashdot)

"When you do computer programming, what sort of mental work are you doing?" asks science/tech journalist Clive Thompson: For a long time, folks have speculated on this. Since coding involves pondering hierarchies of symbols, maybe the mental work is kinda like writing or reading? Others have speculated it's more similar to the way our brains process math and puzzles.

Viewer fails, as do the suggested fixes

Why? Well, Windows 10 is a crappy, supposedly lowest common denominator that can be idiot-proofed for those among us incapable of running Update any time. That I am now forced to run this because my own software development IDE does not run in Linux makes the problem beyond irritating to debilitating. The viewer rewrite was forced upon the Calibre team, not by Microsoft, but by Python and Qt to a secondary degree. Thus, I am not going to rail about the viewer not working on my computer. Even wh...

Shooting the New Colt Python 4.25″ Revolver in 357 Magnum

Colt Python 4.25″ U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Back in 1988, Colt Python was my gateway drug to handgun collecting. She had a barrel that was 4″ long, Pachmayr grips, and a polished blue that looked like it was made out of black chrome. That Python was my sidearm for many years. I moved on to other revolvers and of course semi-autos but that Python was special and almost always made a trip with me to the range. Unfortunately, it was stolen from my truck about 12 years ago. She gave me 20 years of...

Metadata loading issue since Python 3.9 update

Hey 👋, I run Arch Linux and it updated Python to version 3.9 two days ago. Since then I've not been able to properly read the cached metadata on my devices. On my Boox Note 2 it iterates over all books and reads them - taking a couple of minutes - but finally works. On my Galaxy Tab A, where I read and house a huge comic collection, the issue is worse though. It took around 6 hours for it to iterate over all my comics once I connected the tablet yesterday, and once it was done it didn't manage ...
