Making Numbers Pretty in MatPlotLib

Friday, September 23

Python is an incredible tool for crunching numbers, forcasting things, and cleaning up that data to look presentable. On a basic level, python has many libraries for analyzing data, but it is up to the programmer to take that data and present it in a way that illustrates the data easily.

Started My Dive Into Machine Learning

I recently started doing a deep study into machine learning. I’m pursing this path right now partly because of some trends we are exploring at my work, and partly for a personal challenge to stay up to date with the quickly changing technology world.

Monday, September 5

Network security is one of those ‘set it and forget it’ things that we all neglect over time and as I was taking my Google IT Networking certification, I decided it was time to upgrade my own home network.

The following is an excerpt from my book, Searching For Me, a book about my search for my biological family, faith, and a sense of belonging. At first, I didn’t think much about this new relative.

Called Home

Tuesday, October 1

You ever feel those irresistible tugs deep down in your soul? Like someone is calling you? It’s like a yearning for something. At times we know what we yearn. Other times it is only a feeling that we are missing something and need to fill that void. For me, I’ve had a calling for two … Continue reading
