On demand data in Python, Part 2: The magic of itertools
Python's motto has always been "Batteries included," to highlight its extensive standard library. There are many well-kept secrets among the standard modules, including itertools, which is less well known in part because iterators and generators are less well known. This is a shame because the routines in itertools and related modules such as functools and operators can save developers many hours in developing big data operators. Learn by copious examples how to use itertools to address the most common MapReduce-style data science tasks.

On demand data in Python, Part 1: Python iterators and generators
The oldest known way to process data in Python is building up data in lists, dictionaries and other such data structures. Though such techniques work well in many cases, they cause major problems when dealing with large quantities of data. It's easy to find that your code is running painfully slowly or running out of memory. Generators and iterators help address this problem. These techniques have been around in Python for a while but are not well understood. Used properly, they can bring big data tasks down to size so that they don't require a huge hardware investment to complete.

Build a hotel booking application using the Business Rules service in IBM Cloud
The Business Rules service hosted in IBM Cloud and powered by Operational Decision Manager allows you to define, deploy, and maintain business rules and policies separately from your application code. To demonstrate the benefits of decoupling the lifecycle of the calling application from the business logic (rules) running in a cloud service, we build a simple hotel booking application in a Node.js runtime bound to a Business Rules service that calculates the booking rates. This article will show you how to deploy and execute business rules in the cloud environment. You will then be able to extend this application with more complex rules or build your own application very easily.

Intro to graph databases, Part 1: Graph databases and the CRUD operations
If you’re not familiar with graph databases, using one might sound a bit daunting. Anyone who has taken a course on graph theory can probably attest that the subject is a bit complex. But don’t let your graph theory experience (or lack thereof) keep you away from graph databases. In fact, when you use a fully-managed graph database-as-a-service, you get all of the benefits of graph databases without the complexity. This is part one of the two-part tutorial series Intro to Graph Databases.

What is Docker? A Primer on the Benefits of Containers for Applications
Unless you live under a rock, you’ve heard of Docker, or Docker containers, or at the very least the concept of containerization. But as we know all too well, the technology landscape contains so many features it’s impossible to know even a little about everything out there. I found myself hearing more and more about Docker, and thought, “Gee, I don’t know that I could really explain this to anyone if asked.” And if you’re in the same boat, this blog post is for you.

Predictive Cloud Computing for professional golf and tennis, Part 8: Forecasting
In professional golf and tennis tournaments, athletes welcome any competitive advantage. Looking beyond the current time horizon into the future allows players to position their rackets before the ball arrives and to select the appropriate club based on future weather conditions. The Predictive Cloud Computing project is no different. Time series algorithms project web origin traffic trends into the future so that cloud services can be provisioned or de-provisioned to anticipate sporting content demand. Sinusoidal patterns with a trend, cycle, and level that have been learned from historical data at rest are ensembled together with real-time demand patterns. The combination of InfoSphere Stream, InfoSphere BigInsights, RabbitMQ, WebSphere Java Application, Apache math commons, and custom algorithms have produced forecasts with an 18.44% mean absolute percentage error (MAPE). As a result, provisioning cloud services for future demand loads has saved thousands of compute minutes.

Accept online payments on Bluemix using API Connect
With the emergence of the API economy, service consumption has become easier and more standardized than before. Cloud-native applications are typical consumers of such services through APIs. Online payment is an example of a service that is essential for almost any e-commerce application that you may build. There are several ways for you to build applications that accept online payment. This article shows you an example of such an implementation on IBM Bluemix by using third-party payment service APIs. This approach is based on API consumption so it's easy for you to modify the code to match the APIs of your payment service provider of choice.
