Leading off today we have Amazon AWS announcing Educate, their program for students and educators. This is just a really cool idea and a great way to get buy-in early. Another great read is about the bunny theory of code at NCZOnline. The moral of the story is if you commit some code, you should expect that it will start to appear in other sections of code as well.

Do you test? Do you want to test? For many operations and build/release engineers (and even some developers!), testing can be a bit of a foreign concept. It’s hard to pay attention to getting to 100% code coverage on your unit tests for your infrastructure cookbooks and manifests when the infrastructure is on fire! But… maybe that’s why it’s on fire?

R: Replacing for Loops With Data Frames

Sun, 2015-05-17 08:30
In my last blog post I showed how to derive posterior probabilities for the Think Bayes dice problem: Suppose I have a box of dice that contains a 4-sided die, a 6-sided die, an 8-sided die, a 12-sided die, and a 20-sided die. If you have ever played Dungeons & Dragons, you know what I am talking about. Suppose I select a die from the box at random, roll it, and get a 6.
What is the...
