Blank spots are filled by incrementing the match from the previous line, allowing for creation of sequences (1, 2, 3; 2000-10-30, 2000-10-31, 2000-11-01). Follow the repository on Git Hub and vote for it on It can also increment roman numerals and ordinals (1st, 2nd, 3rd, ...). And if you're feeling especially charitable, follow tpope on Twitter and Git Hub. Momocs aims to provide a complete and convenient toolkit for morphometrics.It is intended for scientists interested in describing quantitatively the shape, and its (co)variations, of the objects they study.Momocs hinges on the core functions published in the must-have by Julien Claude (2008), but has been further extended to allow other shape description systems.So far, configurations of landmarks, outlines and open outline analyses, along with some facilities for traditional morphometrics are implemented.Just like in real speed dating, you have to do something to stand out and be memorable. If I were to attend as a dev, I would be sure to bring something memorable for the interviewers to take with them. See if there is a city near you and request an invite.
Nevertheless, morphometric analyses still have to be carried out using various software packages either dedicated to a particular morphometric and/or for which source code is mostly unavailable and/or copyrighted.
For developers, this is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get in front of top tech companies. Research shows that you have six minutes and 25 seconds to make a solid first impression in a job interview.
Hacker X boasts Google, Twitter, and Uber as past companies. I hadn’t heard of any of the brands at the event I attended. While first impressions are hard to shake, at least with a real interview you get that chance. A staggering number of candidates spent too long complaining about their current situation. Hacker X provides interviewers with names and contact info for each attendee. But after speaking with tens and tens of candidates, it’s not easy to stand out.
Moreover, most of existing software packages cannot be extended and their bugs are hard to detect and thus correct.
This situation is detrimental to morphometrics: time is wasted, analyses are restricted to available methods, and last but not least, are poorly reproducible.
