Though I call myself a global nomad, I’ll let you into a little secret. Of all the cities I’ve lived in across Europe, Africa and Asia, Bangalore is my most favourite. So every morning as I skim the news, I particularly keep an eye out for Bangalore articles. And so, it was with much interest that I read this article, in todays edition of Business Standard Cisco gears up for ‘smart’ India play, in which Bibhu Ranjan Mishra talks about how CISCO’s office in Bangalore is a great example of a smart city. The article goes on to give some really cool examples of how the CISCO office practices ‘smart’, while also telling us just how the company is engaging with the government  in areas of smart urban planning.

Using Pipes in R

By: Gunnvant Singh, Faculty at Jigsaw

Let’s be honest, once you start doing serious data wrangling in R, the code starts appearing ugly. One of the reason for this is the functional nature of R. In order to accomplish a decent data manipulation task one has to write nested functions. Now, writing nested functions is not that difficult, what’s difficult is reading them!!!
