General Electric and Canonical Working on a New Open-Source IoT Standard

Filed under
Ubuntu

IoT is the acronym for the Internet for Things, a new category of devices that are smart and can connect to the Internet, but they are far removed from anything that's been done until now. We all knew that a time would come when we would have all kinds of cool stuff connected to the Internet, like a fridge or oven, but now that we're here, we find that things have become terribly complicated.

  • Python requirements.txt File

    “We need to employ a lot of modules while creating Python apps for various functionalities. The number of modules a given application uses can be considerable. Generally, it is advised to create a virtual environment tailored to the project when developing such massive programs, as well as smaller ones, because doing so enables us to install anything we want and of any version without overburdening the available package space. The script and dependencies must be installed on the user’s computers for them to utilize the developer. Because the dependencies are set up in a virtual environment, it would be useless to share the entire virtual environment because the folder size would be enormous, and there would be a risk of integrity problems. When this occurs, programmers include a requirements.txt file in the project that contains a list of all the dependencies that have been installed in the virtual environment as well as information on the version that is being utilized. To utilize the program, the borrower or end-user merely needs to set up a virtual environment and install any necessary components. This post will explain how to create the requirements.txt file and install dependencies using it.”

  • Python Argparse Examples

    “The interpretation of command line arguments has been made by the use of the Python module argparse. By providing user input elements to be processed, argparse would be used to give customization and reuse of the program in place of explicitly specifying variables within the function.”

GUADEC Notes

It was really lovely to get back to GUADEC. I loved being around old friends and meeting the new faces within the project. The venue was stellar and I thoroughly enjoyed a lot of the talks this year. For me, my favorite talks were the progressive webapps talk by Phaedrus Leeds, Federico’s meme-filled talk on accessibility, and Rob’s talk about the Endless deployment to Oaxaca, Mexico. [Note: I hope someone goes back to the youtube videos and adds timestamps / links to all the talks. It would be easier to find and browse them. ] On my part, I gave a talk on GNOME Crosswords and participated on a panel on how to get a Job with Free Software. The crosswords talk in particular seemed pretty successful. It had a great article written about it in lwn.net (thanks Jake!), which lead to an increase in bug reports and crossword contributions. One observation: it felt that attendance was down this year. I don’t know if it was Covid or Mexico, but some combination led to a smaller crowd than usual. I saw that there was a mini-GUADEC in Berlin as well (which I’ll assume was a lagging indicator of the above and not a cause.) Read on

GNU PSPP Is a Free Open-source Statistical Package and SPSS Alternative

GNU PSPP is a program for the statistical analysis of sampled data. It is a Free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS, and appears very similar to it with a few exceptions. The most important of these exceptions are, that there are no “time bombs”; your copy of PSPP will not “expire” or deliberately stop working in the future. Neither are there any artificial limits on the number of cases or variables which you can use. There are no additional packages to purchase in order to get “advanced” functions; all functionality that PSPP currently supports is in the core package. PSPP is a stable and reliable application. It can perform descriptive statistics, T-tests, anova, linear and logistic regression, measures of association, cluster analysis, reliability and factor analysis, non-parametric tests and more.
