Earlier this year I blogged about creating a Lean Mean Vue Machine called Quotes on Demand. The application was a fully featured CRUD application served from a NodeJS server and had a self contained VueJS front end.

In this post, we will create a Python web application that will have 100% parity to an existing NodeJS web application. This will enable an existing VueJS front end to connect to the application with no additional code changes in the user interface code.

Facial recognition is both amazing and horrifying. Some amazing things it can do is the ability to find missing children or seniors, using your face to unlock your phone, and being able to board an airplane faster.

In this blog post, I want to highlight some powerful tools and platforms that allow you to create distributed facial recognition systems with OpenCV and Azure’s Cognitive Services. By the end of this post, you will have a working face detector using OpenCV that can communicate with Azure’s Cognitive Services.

I used Python 3.7.4 and pip 19.2.3 for this project. You can view the code from this blog at https://github.com/dcandre/Dystopian-Future-At-Home.

After I began programming, I started noticing that some of the things I was doing on my computer at home were repetitive and could be automated to save time and effort. Unfortunately my first language was C++, which doesn’t exactly lend itself well to that kind of work. I discovered that certain scripting languages could help me fill that need …
