How does python put up with R in terms of statistics and machine learning?

puhrez17:02:56

@crocket: in my experience, R has a more mature and robust quantitative ecosystem, but python has good packages as well in addition to being easier to learn/read/generally more of a pleasure to work with

puhrez17:02:06

although, probs slower

griesmey18:02:01

Is http-kit the chosen package for making network requests?

griesmey18:02:12

if so, then how do I install/use it?

griesmey18:02:41

wrong room I think

akiva18:02:04

#C053AK3F9 might be the way to go.

jaen18:02:22

@griesmey: if you mean "a http client" by that it's one option, but there's also aleph or clj-http. http-kit is good, but it's less maintained these days. Also yeah, #C053AK3F9 or #C03S1KBA2 would be good channels probably.

griesmey18:02:41

how do I install packages?

joetague18:02:35

I’ve checked downforeveryone and it says yes

joetague18:02:07

@tcrawley: thanks

nano21:02:56

Anyone happen to know of any details wrt EuroClojure 2016?

jaen21:02:08

I guess that's a bit too early to contemplate that. It's half a year away after all.

jaen21:02:45

I hope it'll be closer to Poland this time. It was awesome I could take part in it when it was in Kraków. And then Barcelona next year...

jaen21:02:28

That was too far and too expensive for me at the time : |

nano21:02:54

You have LambdaDays in Poland in a few weeks, don't get greedy 😛

jaen21:02:03

And Polyconf ; d

jaen21:02:32

I don't ask for the next EuroClojure to be in Poland again, mind you. Just not the whole other end of the continent ; d

jaen21:02:50

I wouldn't mind Netherlands or something; that's relatively close.

alexmiller23:02:03

@nano: still undetermined although we are making progress on that

nano23:02:08

cool, thanks.

jkrueger23:02:52

quick question. i’m new to clojurians. where would be the right place to announce a project not implemented in clojure but related ? for example: i want to release a c++ port of the clojure api. it’s something that came out of a private project of mine, but i think it might have some value for other people

jaen23:02:30

#C03RZGPG3 could be a good guess?

jkrueger23:02:17

that’s what i figured. thanks

meow23:02:32

@jkrueger: You could also post something in #C06MAR553 .

jkrueger23:02:21

@meow: will do. i just wanted to make sure that i’m not schmutzing up some place

meow23:02:11

@jkrueger: Trust me. I already did that. Bull in a china shop style, FTW. 😇 👽
