Problem 1: Find out the nth Fibonacci number

def get_fibonacci(size):
    numbers = [1,1]
    while size > len(numbers):
        next_fibonacci = numbers[-1]+numbers[-2]
        numbers.append(next_fibonacci)

    return numbers

Solution

Rule: F(n) = F(n-1) + F(n-2) | F(0) = F(1) = 1

Problem 2: Output a digit corresponding to an image of handwritten digit

Solution:                            ಠ_ಠ

.. so many rules to figure out

Building communities : One byte at a time

In 2012, Harvard Business Review quoted that Data Scientist is the Sexiest Job of the 21st Century. As someone starting up with academia or taking the first steps with Data Science, how can we learn more by leveraging information from the community with people having certain expertise coming under the same roof. I’ll tell you my journey in this small attempt and will discuss about the community - PyData Delhi that I am nurturing since the past 6 months.
