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 vxlabs consultancy was active from 2013 to 2021, at which point CB decided to dedicate their work time to Stone Three and so the vxlabs company was switched from trading to holding mode. The vxlabs blog continues undeterred!

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