Now in its 26th year (and still going strong in terms of popularity), Python stands out for its distinctive syntax compared to those programming languages based on C. Programmers appreciate how Python means not having types; and using four-space indents makes it much easier to identifying blocks. However, there’s much more to Python than just boosted readability.
Threads are a useful way to get more out of your CPU. Technically known as a “thread of execution,” a thread is the smallest possible sequence of programmed instructions handled by a scheduler. Multiple threads can power a single process, although all must share memory resources. The processor cores on your PC run threads; these cores have registers, small bits of data that can include a current executing instruction address (for example).
Microsoft’s flagship relational database, SQL Server, is now 28 years old and still going strong. It comes with a decent set of management tools, ranging from SQL Management Studio to SQLCMD, a command line tool. It can also be managed completely in code using SQL Server Management Objects (SMO for short); as it’s .NET, C# is the most likely language to code SMO, but any .NET language will do. Let’s walk through some actual coding.
@Dan_Rowinski Our Union with the EU is precarious, but at least it involves different countries. Your Union is based on people from the same country hating each other. To the detriment of people who live here.
BBC News - Nintendo axes Miitomo, its first smartphone game http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-42817213 ... I am quite surprised that this non-game was not killed off earlier, it is one of the least interesting mobile games I have ever played.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
