For starters…

Sometimes a simple google search simply can not give you the answers you are looking for. You might have to look up a book reference, browse through some blogs (the forums are not that useful no more), and, at times, even the official documentation is not enough. I recently read a very thoughtful post which underlines (among the multitude of things) the importance of the negative feedback. And, a few years ago, I learned from a very good physics lecturer that the best way to learn about a topic is to write a book on it.

Well, I’m not going to write a book, but I can try to write a blog. Its intention is not to teach someone on the topics on programming, (mostly on python and linguistic processing), but to learn along the path of writing it and to learn from the negative feedback.

I recently started working on linguistic processing. I use pyparsing and nltk for it.

I like using werkzeug and jinja2 for a web interface. I use sqlalchemy to talk to a database. Goodbye sql.

A friend of mine who has quite an experience in this field recommended django. I was hesitating but decided to go the the loosely coupled option since I like jinja2 better than django templates and I like sqlalchemy more than the django orm. The convenience of the other django stuff is mostly unnecessary.

That’s it for now, stay tuned if any of the attached tags interests you.
