Still continuing my #graph journey of discovery. I’ve been looking at overlapping community detection algorithms. Implemented a simple one (CPMw) in #Clojure but was underwhelmed by the results. I could fiddle with parameters to get the desired clusters individually but not together.
Need to look into proper evaluation methods now, I won’t get very far just by eyeballing the clusters.
wrote a post on running Luminus #Clojure web apps using Dokku, I think it provides one of the best ways to manage a VPS
A shout-out to all people interested in #Clojure and #datascience: we're organizing the community to move Clojure forward in the field and everyone is invited!!!
My colleagues are looking at more #graphql. Seems to be a good dev story in the browser and on Node, but much weaker everywhere else.

Serious yak-shaving going on now. I'm trying to implement clique percolation (CFinder) in Clojure. Loom provides a maximal cliques implementation that should be trivial to build on top of, except I noticed degeneracy ordering was performing terribly. I managed to optimize this and was feeling pretty smug, except the rest of the algorithm is also not performing. Further down the rabbit hole I go...
