Four short links: 10 August 2018
CS for DS, Operations Research, Coding Sandpit, and GitHub's Load Balancer
- The Best Books on Computer Science for Data Scientists (Hadley Wickham) — a solid list.
- OR Tools — an open source, fast, and portable software suite for solving combinatorial optimization problems.
- Pencil Code — a collaborative programming site for drawing art, playing music, and creating games. It is also a place to experiment with mathematical functions, geometry, graphing, webpages, simulations, and algorithms. Programs are open for all to see and copy. In my head as a good “what next after Scratch?”
- GLB Director: GitHub Load Balancer — a Layer 4 load balancer that scales a single IP address across a large number of physical machines while attempting to minimize connection disruption during any change in servers.
