Mostly python and math stuff

Welcome to My Blog

My first post is going to be a bit meta. I've wanted to start a blog for a while, but have been constantly debating about whether I wanted it to be a Hugo blog, a web app, WordPress or whatever. Ultimately I'm settling on using a Pelican, a pretty awesome tool to make static websites.

The reason I'm going with it is because it has great support for writing posts with iPython notebooks. So it's easy to embed, code, LaTeX, and pretty much anything in the daily workflow of a data scientist/software engineer.

Here's an example of some code:

In [11]:
def fibonacci(n):
    if n == 0 or n == 1:
        return 1
        return fibonacci(n-1) + fibonacci(n-2)
In [12]:

Example of some LateX:

In [13]:
$$c = \sqrt{a^2 + b^2}$$
$$c = \sqrt{a^2 + b^2}$$

I am really inspired by the DataQuest community so I want to contribute to it and share some of the stuff that I've been working on.

Here are some of my favorite posts that I hope to emulate:
