Tips to build wxWidgets C++ for Ubuntu Linux with Codelite IDE

Tips to build wxWidgets C++ for Ubuntu Linux

Here are some notes to help 


https://www.wxwidgets.org/downloads/
../configure --enable-unicode --enable-debug

configure: error: 
The development files for GTK+ were not found. For GTK+ 2, please
ensure that pkg-config is in the path and that gtk+-2.0.pc is
installed. For GTK+ 1.2 please check that gtk-config is in the path,
and that the version is 1.2.3 or above. Also check that the
libraries returned by 'pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --libs' or 'gtk-config
--libs' are in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent.

You may need to do: 
apt-get install libgtk2.0-common
http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=113419

Also, edit your Ubuntu bash profile
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1707261
vim ~/.bashrc

Add your GTK library to LD_LIBRARY_PATH 
http://www.mathematik.uni-ulm.de/help/gtk+-1.1.3/gtkfaq-2.html

ALso, try installing with as this worked for me:
apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev

Install java 8
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
http://tecadmin.net/install-oracle-java-8-jdk-8-ubuntu-via-ppa/#

I had serious issues with configuring Netbeans and Eclipse IDEs for wxWidgets, but it 
seems CodeLite IDE has preconfigured settings for wxWidgets. 

http://askubuntu.com/questions/330268/how-to-install-codelite-on-ubuntu

sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc
sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu/ $(lsb_release -sc) universe"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install codelite wxcrafter

Wisest tips for Python 2 vs 3 with Anaconda vs PyCharm

Wisest tips for Python 2 vs 3 with Anaconda vs PyCharm

This came in from a wise software developer with much experience in these environments. Confusing for many I know based on an email I sent out below. Also, check out the 1 on 1 tutorial below to see how I tried to help others. BIG THANKS to this person for helping who is among some really amazing generous people in this community!

 

I sense your frustration with the mixed python environments when trying to get everything to play nicely (from your video) . May I suggest that you try setting up virtual python environments with “vritualenv”  (and/or manage multiple environments with “virtualenvwrapper”). Create your virtual environment and install Anaconda for python 2.7  into one of the virtual environments that you have setup and that way you have a isolated sandbox with which you can only use that version of python (the other installs are invisible to this environment unless you choose to make them visible – that is a switch in the virtualenv setup), IDE (Spyder) etc Anaconda only, and pip Mongodb will install in this Anaconda environment- without leaking into your other environments. You can setup another for Anaconda for python 3, another for Pycharm etc….

 

By the way “pip” does work with Anaconda for packages that are not part of Anaconda, you just have to manage those packages yourself and I have never had any issues.

Here are some resources that may be useful to explore should you wish to go down that path.

GREAT Tips on Python CUDA GPU

GREAT Tips on Python CUDA CPU

This came in from the same Meetup member who suggested this computer

How to build a trading computer

Thanks to this person

 

This one has 16 x 512 cores ( or 8192 cores)
at 1.3 GHz. (Normal pc has like 8 or 12 cores)

If the code is cuda enabled that's more cores than than the caltec hpc lab.
 (Python has libraries that plugin that are coded to use cuda)

US DOE department of energy is said to be switching to cuda for their next super computer 
for energy modelling. (100-300 petaflops)

Right now the only cuda hpc lab available is Nvidia. (They do have a free trial you can
 subscribe to) To make it comparable, you'd have to rent 1500-2000 quad core machines to be able to make a comparison.

(Check out Nvidia k80 and Nvidia jetson)
K80 is what physicist use to model nuclear reactions, and oil engineers for fracking 
calculations) (jetson is what's being used for visual processing for automated driving)

Keep in mind this is only for research and development aka model building not actual
 trading. (But it will definitely speed things up)
