combineddf used for visualizing various charts to see the data distribution will be again used for regression. Since most of the descriptive features are categorical we will be using
LabelEncoder to transform this to Numerical data. …
In one of the previous articles, we discussed the need for chaining several functions, and how to do them using the
this operator. While this works fine, there are several drawbacks to using this method:
this. And the value must be stored in the
thisoperator so that the functions chained later on gets to access this value.
To reduce the effects of these two caveats, the implementation of
compose() functions can be used. …
Dynamic web applications require data to be sent to and fro from the server. Consider any web application that is used in day to day life. The user information is sent to the server via HTML form elements such as inputs (user name, user email), radio buttons (selecting a choice), checkboxes (agreeing to terms and conditions), etc. React library also has its way of handling forms to collect user data. …
React hooks, which got introduced in 16.8 versions, are a new way of using state, and others react lifecycle methods in functional components. React hooks were introduced to solve 3 major problems in the earlier versions of react:
const finalResult = function1(
const result3 = function3();
const result2 = function2(result3);
const finalResult = function1(result2);
In both cases, we are trying to pass the output of the innermost function to its immediate outer function. While this works well for three functions, imagine a scenario where there are multiple function calls to be repeated this way. …
Generator functions are a new class of functions that were introduced by the EcmaScript 2015 standard. A generator is a function that can be paused mid-way at any point during the execution and resumed whenever required. The best part about the generator functions is that they preserve the execution context until they reach the end of the function. The variable values within the generators remain intact until the function execution is concluded.
By definition, lambda functions are anonymous functions that are not bound to any identifiers. These functions are usually passed as arguments to other higher-order functions. However, when it comes to Netlify or any cloud provider, lambda functions take a different meaning. Lambda functions are a great way to define a small chunk of serverless code to run on your applications’ behalf. Let’s say you have an application running purely on the client-side, and you need a small chunk of code to be executed on the server-side, bringing up a whole new server, and deploying just to perform one small task seems a bit of overhead. …
A blockchain is a distributed database that is used to maintain a continuously growing list of records called blocks. But what does this mean? Consider a decentralized database that is managed by multiple participants, this can also be called as Distributed Ledger. Blockchain is a type of Distributed Ledger, containing blocks of transactions. These transactions are recorded with an immutable cryptographic signature called a hash. Not all distributed ledgers apply this concept of sequence of blocks being connected via cryptographic signatures. Blockchain is a type of distributed ledger designed to record transactions digitally without the need for third-party interference.
Blockchain technology is useful because it eliminates the need for a trusted third party to take care of the bookkeeping. Consider a scenario in which a set of transactions need to take place. If both parties keep their books containing the details of the transactions, anyone can tamper it and claim that their version of the transaction is true. This calls for a trusted authority trying to safeguard the source of truth. Blockchain eliminates the need for such a middleman while handling transactions. Blockchain provides a distributed, immutable, tamper-proof way of recording transactions digitally. …
The daily interactions we have either with real people or with our devices and applications require some level of trust between the interacting parties. When we create an account in Google, we are trusting our details such as username, mobile number, password with google to store it securely, preserve it, and use it whenever as per our instructions. However, there is a factor of trust involved here. Now imagine a system that doesn’t need your true identification, a system where individuals can be completely anonymous and exchange value or information without requiring the factor of trust with one another or with a third party. …
