Using Pail with a Graph Schema.

In a previous post I wrote about using Thrift, Pail and Cascalog. In this post I’ll expand on that, or rather simplify that example with an extension library, Pail-Graph. More specifically this is about using Pail with a Graph Schema, which is a little bit more specialized than just using thrift and Pail. The use of Graph Schema and the likeness of the example Graph Schema comes from Nathan Marz’ Book on Big...

Fressian, Pail and Cascalog

In my previous post I wrote about using Thrift, Pail and Cascalog. In this post I’ll replace thrift and graph schema with Fressian and native data types. It turns out that Fressian, Pail, and Cascalog go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Thrift, Pail, Cascalog and Clojure!

Thrift, Pail, Cascalog and Clojure have been consuming my work for the last 2 months. It isn’t that hard.

SAS Programming with VIM

While I’m an old time vi user, I have been really using Emacs in some sort of vi mode since 1995. I wrote this article when I felt tempted to give VIM a chance. I’m sorry to say that Vim lost and I went back to Emacs very shortly after. If you are interested in programming SAS on Vim, this is still a relevent article. But realize that I do not use this. SAS programming with Vim is very nice with the addition of just this one package. Here’s what I did, and what you can do too, without all the work.

HomeBrew

Developing software on OS X is not always easy. It’s not like Linux or FreeBSD where we have package management that allows easy installation and upgrading of software and the libraries that depend on them. In those systems it’s a given. It’s buit in, it’s a part of life we learn and get used to from the beginning. HomeBrew gives us all of that for OS X.
