At MegaPhone and USER1, as at any startup, we build a lot of prototypes. In fact, arguably everything we build is a prototype. In our early days, we churned through a lot of prototype terminology--everything from "one-off" and "test" to "demo," "study," "duct tape," "simplest thing that works," "minimum viable product," "proof of concept," "hack," "quick fix," and "mock-up". But those terms never gave us the cohesive mental framework we...

NIPS 2011 Big Learning - Algorithms, Systems, & Tools Workshop: Big Machine Learning...

Big Learning Workshop: Algorithms, Systems, and Tools for Learning at Scale at NIPS 2011 Invited Talk: Big Machine Learning made Easy by Miguel Araujo Miguel Araujo holds a BS and MS in computer science from Universidad Antonio de Nebrija and San Diego State University. He is a Machine Learning addict and an active open source hacker that enjoys coding in Python. Miguel is a contributor in open source projects like: django-rules, django-crispy-forms, and requests-oauth. Abstract: While machine learning has made its way into certain industrial applications, there are many important real-world domains, especially domains with large-scale data, that remain unexplored. There are a number of reasons for this, and they occur at all places in the technology stack.

Can the Slashdot community recommend good websites, books, or any other resources that thoroughly discuss the topic of setting up a small web server or network for hosting a site that is as absolutely secure as possible?"
