Wrap-up from DC Hack and Tell #3

I’ve been putting together these wrap-ups from Hack and Tell in DC for a while now. They go out to the meetup list and they’re archived on github, but I like them so much I thought I’d put them here too. Working through the back-catalog:

DC Hack and Tell

Round 3: Hack… to the Future!

And now, a wrap-up… in random order!

  • Mike showed the excellent audioverb for all your language in situ needs – and it even has a youtube explanation too!
  • Aaron talked about rjstat, his R package for reading and writing the JSON-stat data format.
  • Fearless leader Jonathan shared a classic Hack and Tell hack for decoding cryptograms using simple language models and SIMULATED ANNEALING! (I know, right?) It’s called cryptosolver. We miss you, Jonathan!
  • Bayan showed how to simulate fantasy football drafts/seasons in R to test theories and impress your friends! With a Prezi!
  • Tom presented not just the JS live-coding mistakes.io but also super fun interactive statistics and simple-statistics!
  • Aaron also showed this Guess the Letter thing. Oh my gosh there’s a blog post.

And there will be even more good stuff coming soon… to the future!
