  • darkflow

    Translate darknet to tensorflow. Load trained weights, retrain/fine-tune using tensorflow, export constant graph def to mobile devices

    You could already tell from my earlier comment, but I don't think Python is a good language, for anything really. It is used for AI so that today's hardware performs like hardware we had twenty years ago: Python code has slow execution speed. It is not always the Selenium which is slow. sometimes we need to look at code we are using. And Python is always the slowest programming language out there in terms of performance. It's also just a stupid language that annoys me and it's the same with other people: With Python, I find it a bit too easy to write sloppy code. Haskell on the other hand really forces you to break the problem done and abstract out reusable code. That's not to say that you can't write nice code in Python, just that Haskell doesn't let you get away with doing a lot of stupid stuff. This is equally important for Selenium.

    For example, let's look at this project:

  • Ansible

    Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy and maintain. Automate everything from code deployment to network configuration to cloud management, in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.

    Improve Ansible performance

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
