Win `Indian Premier League (cricket)`_ tickets Everybody knows how hard it is to get IPL tickets. CocaCola had an online voting contest, where you upload your picture and other Facebook users have to vote on the picture, at the end of the day the user with most votes will get 2 IPL tickets. I used the following script, and won 2 tickets (twice). FYI, MI v/s CSK and MI v/s RCB ;)
Couple of months back I completed my first year at Enthought. Before that I have worked twice in Google Summer of Code for Drupal. There are quite a few things I learnt while working on various projects:
I created this project as a simple drag-and-drop file uploading service. It uploads files to relevant file uploading service. For example, if you drop an image file, it will be uploaded to Imgur and similarly text files will be uploaded to Pastebin.
You can check out the live demo over here.
Let's start off with a question. Given the following code sample:
def foo(): try: return True except: pass finally: return False

Recently coming out of my education, I have the following points to add, since I got educated in Mumbai, my views are mostly are from an urban point of view. These are the most general things I have found in our education system.
I failed IIT JEE. Got an abysmal score in BITSAT, AIEEE and Maharashtra CET. Its not that I had not tried hard, and I won't be playing the blame games on anyone but the truth is "I had failed".
I was very disappointed and so were my parents, and I felt somewhere I have let them down. My father had to use his contacts and (some extra money) to get me an admission at an engineering college, and I was low on confidence.
According to me, mathematics is neither discovered nor invented, but rather observed.
If you think of Mathematics as a formal documentation of formulae or proofs, then they are discovered. But, my definition of Mathematics includes not only documentation, but also application, and application can be done without formal knowledge of mathematical theorems or proofs, but by sheer observations in the surroundings.
The initial API for Google+ was released on 15th September, 2011. But, this API currently supports only public data, and user data (which can be accessed from any web application or web site). However, there no support for building Google+ applications. It follows a RESTful API design and provides OAuth2.0 for authentication.
Many friends of mine have questions and doubts regarding the “Specialized Syntax based Query Building” system. They would, however, prefer the “Form-based Query Building”. Why do we need such a system, when the conventional system is working fine ? Why does the user have to type a “Specialized Syntax”, can’t he just use SQL ? and many more questions arise. Lets consider the following scenario :
Originally, I used to call it “Natural Language to SQL Translator”, but I guess what I intend to do at this point of time is not Natural Language, it is rather a specialized syntax, which I guess can be further extended to natural language. Let me make a thing clear, about the system :
Hence, its sole purpose is, to help user (end-user/client/power user/reporters) query the database and to give the user a better presentation of the result-set.
