With massive outbreaks and news spreading faster than the Coronavirus (COVID-19) itself, we have to be aware of the actual stats that are affecting the areas that we live in.

Today we are going to explore the fact of how you can stay on top of the information for the Coronavirus and do it that fun way, with Python.

I will show you…


Problems and Solutions of The Social Dilemma

I’m quitting all my social media.

That is what the vast majority of people concluded after watching this shocking documentary about the tech industry and its effects on people and their lives.

The first instinct is that you should leave your phone on the table next to you and never pick it up again.

Those strong feelings are being accumulated out of fear for what social media and stigma of today’s society are doing to us.

Everyone is talking about the problem, but what are we as “users” supposed to do in order to find the solution?

Open Source Projects You Have To Take A Look At

There are many tools right now that we could be using for our Data Science projects, but how many do you know actually inside and out?

In order for us to use those tools, there are developers who are contributing to open source projects like the ones I am going to show you today.

These are going to be pretty popular projects for which you might not have even known they are open source. My goal is to get you interested in those and maybe even contribute to them!

Closer look of Tkinter library

One of the most important parts of today's applications is GUI (Graphical User Interface) itself.

That is because the market is so competitive and oversaturated that it is not even about the functionality anymore, but who can make it look prettier and simpler to use.

Today we will be learning how to create and build GUI applications in one of the most popular programming languages Python.

This short tutorial will be explained line by line and will be very easy to follow although you might not have much experience with Python or programming in general.

The environment

For the development of this…


We take a look at the library called OpenCV, which is used for both Computer Graphics and Vision.

Computer Vision and Computer Graphics are really popular right now since they are vastly connected to Artificial Intelligence and the main thing they have in common is that they use the same library OpenCV in order to perform high-level understanding from digital images or videos (CV) or generating images (CG).

That is why today we are going to take a look at that same library that fuels these big fields in Computer Science and see what are some functions that you can benefit majorly from!

Before we go into the powerful functions of OpenCV, let’s take a look at the…


There are so many websites out there offering job listings for different fields of jobs. Even though you might be at a certain position you should always look for a job and that can get boring. But here comes a simple solution in order to get through so many of those job offers with ease!

We are going to build an easy Python script to get job listings and filter them to your likings.

It is a simple use of Python and you do not need any specific skills to do this with me. …


Once you get into Web Scraping and data processing, you will find so many tools that can do that job for you. One of them is Beautiful Soup, which is a python library for pulling data out of HTML and XML files. It creates data parse trees in order to get data easily.

The basic process goes something like this:

Get the data and then process it any way you want.

That is why today I want to show you some of the top functions that Beautiful Soup has to offer.

If you are also interested in other libraries like…


Python is such a powerful language today and using its tools only benefits you. Before going immediately to the advanced tools of Python. Let’s take a look at the loops in Python that can be sorted as basic knowledge.

Before we jump into the different loops, here is a bit general on the loops themselves.

Loops in general

Loops are used for iterating over a block of code a defined number of times. You can have different approaches to looping and we are going to take a look right now.


Today we need everything quick and fast, so that is precisely why there are so many tools out there that will help you achieve your goals faster.

I curated a list of top 10 automation tools, that will help you finish your job faster. The list consists of different testing tools that are used in fields like automation/manual testing, unit testing, performance, web, mobile, etc.

What is better than all those automation tools that will help you, is that they are free for use (open source).

Let’s just jump right into it!
