I am not sure if it is the largest pre-college competition, but with the hundreds of students from around the world, the atmosphere of the whole event is simply amazing. At Intel ISEF students get a chance to present their science projects and meet each other. For many people, including me, attending ISEF is a pretty big deal. The prizes are high, the competition has a good recognition, and you just hope that all the hard work finally pays off.
The MOOCs (massive open online courses) are becoming a common thing, yet there are some doubts about them. To date, I’ve fully—with all assignments and exams—completed three courses. Yes, I finished another great course called Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science from MIT (on edX). But how to choose suitable courses? And is it worth taking them? And should we purchase the certificates from them?
A few weeks after releasing my tutorial for installing Jupyter Notebook on Android, I ran into this issue of Matplotlib:
TclError: no display name and $DISPLAY environment variable, whenever I tried to use it in Jupyter Notebook on Android. This problem got me puzzled for a while because I knew it used to work when I was writing the tutorial. Luckily, there is a one-line fix for this issue. So, in case you don’t have time for any other details, just put this line at the beginning of the notebook:
Don’t worry, this blog post will not include any stupidly long and heartbreaking story how I become motivated. Instead, I would like to give you some tips from my personal experience how I stick to my new habits. You may not trust me, but keep in mind that I already successfully completed a few on-line courses and I still take new ones ? (just try to google the completion rate of MOOCs).
It is kind of sad bud the GCI ended (on 25. January). And I thought that I will have some free time. But in the end, I am writing this 4 days after the deadline of GCI. Since I already wrote articles about OpenMRS and about my experience with GCI. And I don’t like to repeat myself, I wouldn’t go over it again. However, I would like to kind of extend these articles.
Right now I am working on banner for OpenMRS. The banner is created in Blender.
