One of the best post for studying machine learning with R

This is definitely one of the best link to learn about machine learning using R.

Although you can follow through the blog, there are some R syntax that you might not be so familiar with :-

a) What is the purpose of this command line

names(iris) <- c="" code="" epal.length="" epal.width="" etal.length="" etal.width="" pecies="">

This is just for naming your dataset. For example, lets create a list of bird and their size

bird <- bird1="1," bird2="5)</p" list="">
Size 1, would probably be sparrow and size 5 would be a larger bird call eagle. Let change this, using names

names(bird)[1] <- p="" sparrow="">names(bird)[2] <- eagle="" nbsp="" p="">

> bird
[1] 1

[1] 5

b) Funny looking operator "%>%"

This is a pipe operator import from magrittr. which is basically allow us to invoke command in sequence.

iris %>% ggvis(~Sepal.Length, ~Sepal.Width, fill = ~Species) %>% layer_points()

This is the same as calling

ggvis(~Sepal.Length, ~Sepal.Width, fill = ~Species) 



c) Another important aspect in the tutorial is that we divide our dataset into training and test using a sample command.

ind <- 0.33="" code="" iris="" nrow="" prob="c(0.67," replace="TRUE," sample=""> <- 1:4="" code="" ind="=2," iris.test="" iris="">

Notice that knn function requires this input parameters.

knn(train, test, cl, k = 1, l = 0, prob = FALSE, use.all = TRUE)

Some description of the parameters required.

train = input for our training set

test = input for our training set

cl = factor for true classification for training set

k = neighbor considered  We have 3 distinct neighbour for our dataset.

Other side notes.

How to install R package


Check if you have a package installed

any(grepl("", installed.packages()))

Android Programmatically apply style to your view

Applying style to your view (button in this case) dynamically is pretty easy. All you have to do is place the following in your layout folder (res/layout)
Let's call this file : buttonstyle.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <selector xmlns:android=""> <item android:state_pressed="true" > <shape> <solid android:color="#449def" /> <stroke android:width="1dp" android:color="#2f6699" /> <corners android:radius="3dp" /> <padding android:left="10dp" android:top="10dp" android:right="10dp" android:bottom="10dp" /> </shape> </item> <item> <shape> <gradient android:startColor="#449def" a…

OpenCover code coverage for .Net Core

I know there are many post out there getting code coverage for .dotnetcore. I'm using opencover to address this needs.

In case, you do no want to use opencover and wanted to stick with vs2015 code coverage, you can try to copy Microsoft.VisualStudio.CodeCoverage.Shim.dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Team Tools\Dynamic Code Coverage Tools\coreclr\ and drop it into your project "bin\Debug\netcoreapp1.0" folder.  Please note : you need to be on VS2015 Enterprise to do this. 

To get started, I guess we need to add OpenCover and ReportGenerator for our test projects, as shown in diagram below :-

When nuget packge gets restored, we will have some binaries downloaded to our machine and we going to use this to generate some statistics. I think the biggest issue is to getting those command lines work.

In dotnetcore, we run test project using "dotnet test" (assuming you are in the test project folder - if not please go there)  So we add this …

DataTable does not have AsEnumerable

I have problem locating my AsEnumerable extension method in my DataTabe (System.Data). Thank god for this post by Angel

I was able to find this method once i have added reference to the following assembly.

C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5\System.Data.DataSetExtensions.dll

Try to do a dummy Build and you should be able to get it.
