R: Scraping the Release Dates of Github Projects

Mon, 2015-06-29 07:00
Continuing on from my blog post about scraping Neo4j’s release dates I thought it’d be even more interesting to chart the release dates of some github projects. In theory the release dates should be accessible through the github API but the few that I looked at weren’t returning any data so I scraped the data together. We’ll be using rvest again and I first wrote the following...

Scraping Github Pull Requests and Their Code Review Comments

Mon, 2015-06-29 04:30
Github stores its pull-request and code review data in MySql. I’d much prefer a git reperentation for both (JSON, commits, audit trail, etc). Kinda the way Github Wiki pages are stored. That’s an aside though, this article is about storing code-review comments long term. The problem I’m trying to solve is one of deletion of users thich causes their pull requenst commentary to also get...

Drop Books

Sun, 2015-06-28 07:30
The vast majority of books I purchase are for my own enjoyment, but not all of them. There are a few books that I buy over and over, and drop on the desks of friends and colleagues.

I call these books "Drop Books"; I drop them and never expect them to be returned. My main motivation for dropping...

Launching Missiles With Haskell

Sun, 2015-06-28 07:30
Haskell advocates are fond of saying that a Haskell function cannot launch missiles without you knowing it. Pure functions have no side effects, so they can only do what they purport to do. In a language that does not enforce functional purity, calling a function could have arbitrary side effects, including launching missiles. But this cannot happen in Haskell. The difference between pure...

Sun, 2015-06-28 07:00
