What I learned from writing a guest post

                                                    writing-article
Recently I wrote a python tutorial for Datacamp, while writing this tutorial I learned a couple of things which I am going to share with you right here in my blog post. May be you can use my experiences in your own endeavours as a writer.

Idea

The first step is idea generation. You can either search through any previous topics in your blog post if you have one or you can go through your past learning, experiences or any problem statement that you might have gone through and you will find that while doing that you can get tons of ideas to start your article. If you fall short of ideas then you can ask for help from may be your social media followings your friends or your family, for example I asked the people at Datacamp themselves and they suggested me a couple of topics which got me started on the right note. So, be prompt to ask for help and you will be surprised how easily you can crowd-source ideas and there's nothing wrong in it.

Squeezing in time



Squeezing in time to get into a side project while handling a full time job is a nagging difficulty for most of us and if you are like me who works on multiple side projects then this seems next to impossible, right? Wrong, Actually you have to squeeze in your side project whenever and wherever you can. For instance while writing the python tutorial for Datacamp I was actually working on two more side projects while holding a full time job, so what I did was that I squeezed in my task of tutorial writing whenever I could, if I had time after dinner I wrote a few lines for the tutorial, if I had some time left in between watching my favourite TV show then I devoted the couple of free minutes to write some few more lines of codes for the python tutorial. In short you have time and lots of it, its just a question of how efficiently you can manage it. 

The Review

Tidying up your work before submitting your final piece is very important as it reduces the overhead of the people who will actually take care of editing and publishing your article. I myself did many mistake during my first article but now I have made it a point to double check each and every line of my writing or code before submitting it for a final review.


Go ahead and get writing

I have tried to note down my learning/experiences and I hope that you all can take home something from these experiences of mine and believe me the more you write and contribute to the community the more you will learn yourself and the more satisfaction you will get as you are able to help the community. So go ahead and start writing.

How To Install Tensorflow On Windows

Why I am writing this tutorial ?
Recently I have started learning machine learning specifically DeepLearning for one of my pet projects, and during this quest of mine I wanted to learn TensorFlow library which is developed by Google. Learning is one thing but first I needed to install the library, but there was this problem which I faced during the installation. I am using Anaconda as my package manager and trying to install the Tensorflow library on my work computer which is behind a proxy, installing directly from the anaconda cloud while behind a proxy always displayed a proxy error.

How did I resolve the issue? Well this is exactly what I am going to write down in the below tutorial. The Steps To Follow
Before we get all cosy with this short tutorial on Tensorflow installation, let me tell you that
this tutorial is on the assumption that you have already installed Anaconda on your machine and you know at least a few basic things or two about python.
If you want to learn basic pyt…
Programmer’s skill set


Hey guys welcome to another article of Thecodingproject. Today I will share an answer to another interesting question for you budding programmers out there. When I first started learning to code this same question came to mind time and again and the question was what skills sets I should posses as a programmer ? What tool set should I start collecting in my coding toolbox ?

A programming language is just an ends to meet the automation/programming goal of a software engineer. So, I would like to touch base on the skills required by an automation engineer irrespective of the language skill set since it would be applicable to every type of programming language be it JAVA, R , Python etc. So, let's see what skills we need to have as a automation engineer-

Logical skills- This is a rather obvious skill that every programmer should have because a even writing the first line of code requires logical thinking so that you can frame your code around the correct logic. Des…

For Loop in python 3 : How to become a Python Jedi - Beginners Python Programming Tutorial - Part 7

I am back again with another part in the beginner python programming tutorial series. We will continue with "Loops" but this time we are going to learn how to use for loop in python 3. 


Difference between For loop and While Loop
A "For Loop" and "While Loop" have a common connection that both are looping statement, but major difference is that unlike while loop, a for loop gets executed a specified number of times.



We can break down the For loop into the following components(Refer to the for loop flow chart below).
for keywordvariable namecall to the range functioncolon operatorclause or block of code Hovering over the flow-chart
The above flow-chart is..well horrible I know, but I make my own drawings because I can't afford an artist. So, bear with me. In the above flowchart is a very basicy, laymanish representation of a for loop. The decision box contains the For statement along-with it's soulmate i.e the Range function. As long as the variable I …
