What are y'all learning about this weekend?

Whether you're sharpening your JS skills, making PRs to your OSS repo of choice 馃槈, sprucing up your portfolio, or writing a new post here on DEV, we'd like to hear about it.

Learn, relax, repeat. 馃摎馃馃攣

It begins, for me, by shutting down my pc until Monday and disabling email notifications

My son wants to do some internships which require learning about data crunching, so I've been trying to teach him Python. Python isn't my favorite language, but if someone wants to do a lot of crunching of data for scientific purposes, pyspark is kinda the best tool for the job, so he needs to learn Python.

Outside of that, I'm still working on this octocrab project, and I'm about to write a status update post.

About to play with aurelio-labs/semantic-router, on locall open source LLMs, on top of ollama, see


鉂 About

I'd like to run semantic router fully locally with custom local functions.

Actually, this is possible (Local Dynamic Routes).

But currently, there is no dedicated Notebook that show how to do this (for example on mistral, openhermes or dolphin), except maybe using LangChain throught Intro LangChain Agents with Semantic Router.

馃幆 Questions

  • Would you recommand use LangChain to pass the llm built on top on ollama
  • Would you share a dedicated Notebook that would put best practices available to community ?

I'm working on every 80/90s child's calculator from elementary school a TI-108 remake in JS for a portfolio project. I have it the basics Input, Add, Subtract, Multiple and Divide functioning at the moment. Moving on to what the other six red buttons do and figuring out how I want it too look. I'm thinking about it sitting on a desk complete with the 90s S, super S or whatever your school called it etched into the desk somewhere.

I'm working on my Neovim config. I enjoy doing it, but every now and then it feels like putting a comment in your code that says "don't touch. it works".
