So not taking much of your time lets dive into the idea of the app. The idea is to have list of users displayed on the screen and only logged-in users can send a message to other users visible on the screen. Now we try adding notifications feature to this app. …

To give a brief intro about Django, it’s a web framework for perfectionists with deadlines and makes it easy for developers for making web applications. It is ridiculously fast, secure and scalable. More information can be found here. The framework is based on MVT (Model, Views and Templates) software principle, meaning we have a database model, the respective views for the application, and templates to render or intake the data ( over simplified description), more information can be found here.

Coming to the to do app, the idea is simple, we have a database that stores the things (to be…


In this story we shall see a python based app which gives voice and notification reminders to take a break for relaxing, drink water and greet the user based on time.

From the below picture we get the outline of web-scraping process.


In this post we shall see how to install hadoop on a single node cluster (pseudo distributed mode).

Hadoop software library framework allows distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers(can be commodity computers as well) using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single server to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. “Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.” For more information look the following link.

Hadoop frame work contains the following modules:(top to…
