If you are not familiar with Docker you can read about it in my other article. In this article I'm talking specifically about docker-compose; the tool for building multiple containers (as most application stacks will require).
docker-compose is great. It can be used to deploy to your dev machines, your production application and of . . .
This is certainly not new and there are a tons of libraries out there that have various advantages and disadvantages. One great implementation . . .

There's nothing wrong with PHPUnit per se, but those who have been using it for a while . . .
Welcome back! This is the continuation of Part 1 which covered most of the theory and gave a small scale example. In this article I will be using a much larger and real world data set. We will also look at ways to improve the performance, quality of the algorithm and demonstrate how to objectively test your results.

A recommendation system is used to, well... recommend stuff. Netflix is a great example of this; after you rate several titles it will be able to recommend new titles to you. Have you ever wondered how this really works? Or even apply it to own site or application. Well... you're about to find out.
