Web Page Analysis With Cognonto

2016-09-23T17:48:31Z

Extract Structured Content, Tag Concepts & Entities   Cognonto is brand new. At its core, it uses a structure of nearly 40 000 concepts. It has about 138,000 links to external classes and concepts that defines huge public datasets such as Wikipedia, DBpedia and USPTO. Cognonto is not a children’s toy. It is huge and […]



Cognonto

2016-09-21T13:19:21Z

I am proud to announce the start of a new venture called Cognonto. I am particularly proud of it because even if it is just starting, it is in fact more than eight years old. It is the embodiment of eight years of research, of experimentation, of a big deal of frustration and of great […]



Winnipeg City’s NOW [Data] Portal

2016-08-24T17:33:49Z

The Winnipeg City’s NOW (Neighbourhoods Of Winnipeg) Portal is an initiative to create a complete neighbourhood web portal for its citizens. At the core of the project we have a set of about 47 fully linked, integrated and structured datasets of things of interests to Winnipegers. The focal point of the portal is Winnipeg’s 236 […]



Literate [Clojure] Programming: Anatomy of a Org-mode file

2016-08-11T16:14:13Z

This blog post is the second of a series of blog posts about Literate [Clojure] Programming where I explain how I develop my [Clojure] applications using literate programming concepts and principles. In the previous blog post I outlined a project’s structure. In this blog post I will demonstrate how I normally structure an Org-mode file […]



Literate [Clojure] Programming Using Org-mode

2016-07-07T00:19:54Z

Literate Programming is a great way to write computer software, particularly in fields like data science where data processing workflows are complex and often need much background information. I started to write about Literate Programming a few months ago, and now it is the time to formalize how I create Literate Programming applications. This is […]



Optimal Emacs Settings for Org-mode for Literate Programming

2016-06-21T19:59:25Z

For some time I have been interested in using Emacs and Org-mode for developing Clojure in a Literate Programming way. I discussed the basic ideas, some of the benefits of doing so, etc, etc. It is now time to start showing how I am doing this, what are the rules of thumb I created, what […]



Improving org-babel-clojure

2016-06-16T20:49:54Z

In a previous blog post, I started to play with org-babel-clojure to improve its capabilities such that Clojure gets better integrated into Org-mode for creating notebooks and Literate programs. The first thing I wanted to do is to remove the 20 seconds timeout that was defaulted with the nrepl. That meant that it was not […]



My Optimal GNU Emacs Settings for Developing Clojure (Revised)

2016-06-14T12:19:58Z

It has been 2 years since I last revised my optimal GNU Emacs settings for developing Clojure. Since then, many things have changed in the Cider/Emacs ecosystem and it is why a revision of these settings is now warranted. There is one set of settings that I will not discuss in this blog post, and […]



Literate Programming and Team Development

2016-06-09T17:11:59Z

I recently wrote a post about how I was using Literate Programming principles in Org-mode to write the unit tests of my applications side-by-side with the code it tests. I got some good feedbacks about the post, however one that particularly caught my eye is a blog post on the Irreal blog which states: One […]



Creating and Running Unit Tests Directly in Source Files with Org-mode

2016-05-30T16:59:18Z

Developing a computer program is not an easy task. The process needs a constant focus. Any interruption of that process means that time is spent re-focusing on it and errors are more prone to be introduced. The process involves analyzing a problem to solve by executing a series of steps. It involves writing about the […]
