If you are seeing my website instead of the one you’re supposed to see, this post is for you. I sharing a hosting server with several hundreds of people. That server had a hardware failure, and backups are being restored as I speak.
Why are you seeing my site?
My Domain starts with the letter
A. Thus, it was copied to the server from a backup first. Even before the
default file, as it starts with

I didn’t hack you.
Please contact your hosting provider.

I always tend to organize every aspect of my experiments with organizers as useful as

Pipeline. However, one shouldn’t be passing continuous variables into a
OneHotEncoder or vice versa for Scalers. The solution is, split your data, treat them in separate pipelines before merging them together again. Inspired by Scikit Learn Examples.
I found myself the problem of counting the occurrence of specific “days of the week” between two dates; for, of course, generating features for a predictive analysis task. For example, the number of Fridays and Saturdays between 2019-01-01 and 2019-01-15. And thankfully, good old PostgreSQL came to the rescue!

Grameenphone quietly rolled out its 013 series of numbers and it wrecked everything. No web service, including Google is working with this 013 series of numbers. Its time for developers to fix this mess and update every validation logic you may have for validating mobile numbers or MSISDNs.
I enlisted a few RegExps for de-terrorizing you, even if a bit.
Enough reading, update your RegExps now!
Although something like Flask’s globally accessible

request object is considered a terrible way of writing code (explicit is better than implicit), sometimes it makes sense to use it. For example, while passing a Correlation-ID to track a request’s life cycle through your micro-services.
pyenv can get particularly annoying during building Python. Dependencies are often missing resulting in failed builds. This short blog post is outlining the required dependencies to reduce headaches for future me, and anyone else reading this.

While working with OpenCV, constantly popping up a new Window to view the results might not be the most effective way of work. However, we can minimize the burden if we are working on Jupyter Notebook; with matplotlib. Essentially we plot the matrices with

Bangladeshi NID and Smart Cards come printed with a 2D Datamatrix Barcode, known as PDF417. The information on the cards can be extracted without using an OCR solution through the barcode. We’ll be using Google’s ZXing library; learn about the basics of using it. Continue reading Reading Bangladeshi NID and Smart Cards with ZXing
