downloading files from kaggle
Issue Often there is no simple way to get the files from kaggle to a remote server. While previously I had used either a cookies extension or a python command line module that allowed me to specify the competition, neither of these work efficiently or at all for various reasons. I had been meaning to write a script to do this for some time now had never gotten around to it.
Setting up a Telegram Bot in Python and Docker This post is my personal introduction to using Telegram and Bluemix and while it is incredibly simple, it is useful to see how to do the basics before integrating peripheral API’s or extraneous processes. First, set up a telegram account however you’d like. I used Desktop client and it worked great. Once you have an account, you need to interact with @BotFather to set up a bot.
TensorFlow 0.7.0 dockerfile with Python 3
edit: everything has since been updated to Tensorflow 0.7.0 which I based off of my base cuda dockerfile to use with tensorflow or theano (depending on my goals, Keras allows great flexibility in between training vs compiling) TensorFlow In 2015 Google came out with a new deep learning framework/tensor library similar in many ways to Theano and I enjoy using it a lot more than Theano simply due to long compile times of Theano when using Keras and TensorBoard.

NOTE 6/6/23: DON’T USE Someone recently emailed me asking a question about this post. This code is not usable in any manner and the code itself was written when I had very little programming experience. Keeping this post up for posterity but otherwise it is useless. Note 4/10/17: almost all the python modules have changed quite a bit since this original post and there are issues with youtube-dl and keras, if you would like to work on an updated version or have an updated version please let me know!
