Blinking Lifx Lights Without IFTTT

Python

Allison Tharp has a project to blink a set of Lifx lights a team’s color when they score:

The first step is to generate an API token via the Lifx API here (https://cloud.lifx.com/settings). Keep this token safe and don’t let others see it!

In my functions file, I created 3 new functions for controlling the lights: invoke-setLightinvoke-Pulse, and invoke-Breathe. To understand what the API was expecting, I followed the Lifx API documentation here. As far as API documentation goes, this one is pretty good. Most functions have an interactive portion at the bottom which allows you to test it out yourself and also see what inputs the API expects.

As a Bills fan, at least I wouldn’t have to worry about the lights wearing out from overuse.

Hyperparameter Tuning with MLflow

Joseph Bradley shows how you can perform hyperparameter tuning of an MLlib model with MLflow: Apache Spark MLlib users often tune hyperparameters using MLlib’s built-in tools CrossValidator and TrainValidationSplit.  These use grid search to try out a user-specified set of hyperparameter values; see the Spark docs on tuning for more info. Databricks Runtime 5.3 and 5.3 ML and above support […]
