This site is first and foremost a weblog with technical content on the topics of machine learning, Emacs, Python, Django, programming language tidbits, algorithms and other interesting topics.

It is secondly an online presence of the vxlabs.

the vxlabs = visual x laboratories, a boutique visualization, imaging and software engineering consultancy run by Dr Charl Botha.

The vx in vxlabs represents visual computing, visualization and sometimes just visual nerd. I work on solving hard problems with a combination of elegant computer science and practical engineering.
