Upcoming posts of May-June

I think it is finally time to create a schedule for the blog. From now on, I will try to post at least three articles per month and give you an insight into what I have learned the past few weeks.

The past month I got involved in some really interesting stuff throughout my work and my free time. This month’s posts will include some of the following:

  • Devops, PaaS, Docker
  • Deep-learning book review
  • Python Django development (Unit testing, ORM, TDD)

Also, a big goal for this month is the release of the new look of my blog alongside with the new name! But let’s dive into more details.

1. Devops, Paas, Docker

The past couple of months I got involved with PaaS implementations like Heroku and Dokku. I really had a blast! I learned how to set up a Dokku environment in a custom server and how to deploy web apps into it.

Dokku is a free, open source PaaS, similar to Heroku that you can use to deploy small web apps. Quote Dokku.

“Docker powered mini-Heroku. The smallest PaaS implementation you’ve ever seen.”

The first blog post of the month will be a tutorial on how to set up an Ubuntu server on VirtualBox that communicates with your host machine in order to be able to set up Dokku.

Next, I will go through an extensive tutorial on how to install and deploy apps with Dokku.

Finally, we will take a brief look at Docker, a long series that I am going to release. In the next blog post, I am just going to introduce Docker and deploy a sample Django app.

2. Deep-learning book review

To change the subject a bit, I am going to release a review of the following book:

  • Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow, Concepts, Tools, and Techniques to Build Intelligent Systems

After the review, I am going to release a series of tutorials about Google’s opensource machine-learning framework called Tensorflow. But this is for another month’s schedule.

3. Python Django development (Unit testing, ORM, TDD)

Last but not least, I would like to review Django, a python framework for creating large scale websites. I will cover topics as unit testing in Django and query optimization.

Considering unit testing, I started following the principle of Test-Driven development and I must say, it is amazing! A review of the book: Test-Driven Development with Python is coming soon too.

 4. About current blog

Besides the content of this blog, I am also refactoring the looks of it. I would love to hear your suggestions about this! Things that are going to be changed:

  • The name of the blog
  • The logo of the blog (from now on the logo will not be my mighty face)
  • The looks (a new website is ready to be released)
  • More content besides Data Science with python (PaaS, API, Deep-learning, Django, Devops and so much more!)

Lastly, I would like to hear your thoughts on another topic. I constantly monitor the new trends in Data Science and Python and I was wondering if you would like to hear my thoughts if newly released technologies and python packages.

Thank you all for your support and the time you spend reading my posts, I really appreciate it! Any thoughts and suggestions are always welcome. You can leave a comment below or you can just tweet me on my Twitter @siaterliskonsta! Till next time, take care and bye bye!
