Happy Halloween, all!
I'm sitting here handing out candy and glow necklaces to all comers so its a good time to write a new post.
It's been a while since much happened as I've been really busy with the beta release of Google Cloud Datalab, which is my day job. But now that is out and it's the weekend and lousy weather here in the Pacific Northwest it's been a good day t get back to things.
Today I did something I've been meaning to do for a while, which is to change the code to populate a MongoDB database rather than writing files to the file system. Interestingly it seems to be quite a bit slower than the file system but hopefully it will scale better and make up for things when I have ad-hoc queries to do.
