I tried your app with this image: http://cdn.swapweb.com.ar/estilo-web.net/publis/dell_inspiro... and the results were impressive!.

Much much better than what I can get with tesseract. Would love to have it as an API service.

As other users said, It depends on what would be the purpose of learning it. I'm currently consuming data from different API's and currently using Python. So the next step is learning Java and some Apache technologies: Kafka, Hadoop, Storm which are built in it.

I also will need to code a native mobile app and Java is the language of choice for Android.

I like the simplicity of the site. If you don't mind asking: where do you get the specs information?

Hi, I'm a developer from Argentina and every time I look at who's hiring posts and I see a REMOTE keyword, I don't know if it's remote for local people only or remote from anywhere.

It'd be really nice to put something like local only/anywhere along with the REMOTE keyword.

Me too, glad to help. My mail is in the profile.

How will you identify fake reports?. I think it could be a good idea, but the map can be intentionally modified by random people as I see it.

It is difficult as we do not ask for any personal information of the reporter (except email address) and all reports are filed anonymously. At present, we are validating the genuineness of the reporter through email verification. I understand that won't ensure complete genuineness but the idea is not to focus on individual reports. An area will be tagged high-risk only when sufficient numbers of cases of a particular crime are filed on the platform. Even if there are a few fake entries, the threat will definitely be real and the idea is to bring that forward. Moreover, we are doing manual moderation and in future we plan to add crowd-moderation that can help in identifying fake reports to some extent .

SEEKING WORK - Remote (Buenos Aires, Argentina based) I've building apps with Python for over 4 years, mainly with Django as framework, but I also worked with: tornado server, rabbitmq, postgresql, mysql, mongodb, redis, elasticsearch and neo4j. I've some experience working with frontend techonologies too, some javascript/jquery and a bit of CSS.

I'm slowly transitioning to ML/NLP technologies. I enjoy dealing with data and finding patterns in it. I've been playing a bit with R and with some great python libraries: pandas, scikit-learn and nltk.

Yes, I'm thinking about consulting for non-profits in order to know what the problems are and what can I do to help. It's difficult to come up with ideas when you don't really know the people and her struggles.
