Juvenile Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens

In the morning, around 10, I took a few photos of the Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens I keep. The tarantula recently molted and based on its size I consider it a juvenile. It still doesn't have the mature blue / green colors its common name; the green bottle blue tarantula or GBB for short, is based on.

How the Python import system works

If you ask me to name the most misunderstood aspect of Python, I will answer without a second thought: the Python import system. Just remember how many times you used relative imports and got something like ImportError: attempted relative import with no known parent package; or tried to figure out how to structure a project so that all the imports work correctly; or hacked sys.path when you couldn't find a better solution.

Let's write a Toy Emulator in Python

In this tutorial, we will build an Emulator for Ben Eater's 8-bit breadboard computer.

I'm a big fan of Ben Eater because of his video series on 8-bit breadboard computer and 6502 computer. If you haven't seen any of his videos, I recommend you to start with the 8-bit computer playlist. He builds everything from the ground up on a breadboard and teaches you about the internals and how they work.

In this tutorial we will be creating an emulator in python that can run programs such as printing Fibonacci series or Triangular numbers.
