Alternatives to Jupyter Notebook for Python and more!

Jupyter emerged and gained respect for being an easy-to-install solution, in addition to bringing the proposed use to facilitate coding and visualization of the code, a form of interactive computing aimed at usability. With the success of Python, other market tools started to support this language and compete directly with Jupyter.

Improving the performance of Apache Cassandra, Best practices, and a little more! :)

Cassandra is a NoSQL database developed to ensure rapid scalability and high availability of data, being open source and maintained mainly by the Apache Foundation and its community.
Its main features are:

  • “Decentralization”: all nodes have the same functionality.
  • “Resilience”: several nodes replicate data; it also supports replication by multiple data centers.
  • “Scalability”: adding new nodes to the cluster is fast and does not affect the system's performance; there are systems that use Cassandra with thousands of nodes today.

According to Apache, we can look at Cassandra as being:

“The Apache Cassandra database is the right choice when you need…

Melhorando a performance do Apache Cassandra, Melhores práticas e um pouco mais! :)

O Cassandra é um bancos de dados NoSQL, desenvolvido para garantir rápida escalabilidade e alta disponibilidade dos dados, sendo de código aberto e mantido principalmente pela fundação Apache e sua comunidade.

Suas principais caraterísticas são:

  • “Decentralização”: todos os nodes possuem as mesma funcionalidades.
  • “Resiliência”: os dados são replicados por vários nodes, suporta também replicação por múltiplos datacenters.
  • “Escalabilidade”: adicionar novos nodes ao cluster é rápido e não afeta a performance do sistema, existem sistemas que utilizam o Cassandra com milhares de nodes atualmente.

Segundo a Apache podemos olhar para o Cassandra como sendo:

RStudio in the Docker container environment!!

Docker and containers

Each time we need to create segregated and resilient environments capable of supporting from small applications to distributed databases, making intelligent governance of the computational resources of infrastructure and network simultaneously that we scale solutions horizontally, depending on the need of the scenario covered.

As a solution to this dilemma, containers appeared, according to Microsoft, they are “similar to virtual machines, but they do not create an entire virtual operating system. Instead, Docker allows the application to use the same Linux kernel as the system on which it is running. ”

Docker is one of the main…

How to suit LGPD using MLOps, Data catalog, and more?

We are adapting to the General Data Protection Law (LGPD); this new law has as main objective to guarantee data privacy and reliability, but how is the data area adapted to this new reality? What are the strategies adopted? What about Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

These are some of the strategies that are happening in the data area:

  • Infinite Forms?
    This strategy aims to create one or more forms to manage who accesses and where the data and its sources are. …

DevOps Guide cycle, Tools, certification free, and more… :)

According to AWS, we can understand DevOps as “a combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increase a company’s ability to distribute applications and services at high speed: optimizing and improving products at a faster rate than companies using traditional processes. software development and infrastructure management. This speed allows companies to better serve their customers and be able to compete more effectively in the market. “

# Infrastructure as code

This is a practice in which we can programmatically provision and configure the infrastructure, using techniques from the software engineer, such as version control and continuous integration.

Analyzes the price of Bitcoin in Python using fbprophet?

Warning: This publication is not a recommendation for investing or not investing in bitcoins, if you want to know more about it, look for a duly certified specialist with experience in the subject, please!

Motivation: I was studying time series and seeing the ease of using the Python library for time series analysis, the fbprophet, I decided to apply it to a data set, via LinkedIn I received the news that the virtual bitcoin currency had a value of 100 thousand and this led me to think using fbprophet, what would be the value of that currency in a year?
