Debian 9.4 Released

An anonymous reader quotes Debian.org:
The Debian project is pleased to announce the fourth update of its stable distribution Debian 9 (codename “stretch”). This point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems… Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 9 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old “stretch” media. After installation, packages can be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror.

Phoronix adds that Debian 9.4 “has a new upstream Linux kernel release, various dependency fixes for some packages, an infinite loop fix in Glade, several CVE security fixes, a larger stack size for NTP, a new upstream release of their NVIDIA proprietary driver package, Python 3 dependency fixes, and other security fixes.”

ML: things to know before getting started

Machine learning projects are complex and carry with them typical mistakes that can lead to lots of effort but no outcome. The good news is that everything that is true for Software Engineering does apply to this new area of Computer Science.Following, 40 points that I came to formulate in the last 10 years of working on ML project at Google, SoundCloud and Spotify.Pre-requirements:
Launch your product without ML. (Trivia: As of 2016, The amount of product shipped at Google with ML in the first iteration was 0)

Make clear what is the goal of your product feature. If more than one, stack rank them.

Design and implement Metrics (including negative one) that can track the goal of your product (step 2).Understand how certain interventions/treatments affect user behavior.

Product Managers, Product Analysts and Data Scientists are your best friend here.
Define your product thresholds. Usually, product has requirements that you are not allowed to corrupt.

System Preferences
After clean install of operating system, there are a couple tweaks I like to make to the System Preferences. Some of them are not strictly related to web development enviroment – I use them because of my personal habits.
