What is Processing?

Processing is a relatively lesser known programming language, which is a shame, because it is one of the most useful languages for creative coding and visualization. ‘OpenProcessing’ and ‘CreativeApplications.Net’ websites showcase the genius ways people have used Processing to create art and live installations. I stumbled upon the language in…


The second lockdown was ongoing, and Covid-19 was raging in its full glory. We have been working from home for quite a while — the state government decided to restrict all local transports due to high numbers of daily infections. We transformed our apartment into our home offices. My laptop…


I was trying to practice data scraping, as well as using tidyverse to perform some exploratory data analysis. The idea of analysing the Academy Award of Best Picture winners using data from IMDB came to mind, which would enable me to do both. …


R Studio is a fantastic IDE (Integrated Development Environment). It is simple and intuitive to use, full of helpful features that the programming environment does not provide.

Disclaimer 1: This is not a review of Manjaro Linux distribution, this is my personal opinion on why I feel Manjaro is the best among all the distributions (distros in short!) I have tried so far. The opinion I present here is biased and limited by my knowledge of Linux…


R is like any other programming language — just with a keen focus towards statistical analysis of data. Therefore, if you are familiar with any programming language, it gets very easy to start working with R. Many say R has a steep learning curve. …

Many mistake the behaviour of stealing to only appear in human societies. Scientists across centuries have studied thieves in different animals, and we now know that thieves appear in species that range from small worms to large mammals. Hyenas are a famous example of thieves and have been recorded to…
