vim-logo-freblogg-tabsUsing Tabs (vim calls them tab pages) is one of the sure ways to increase your productivity. Vim Tabs are just like the tabs in your browsers.

Tabs are a really handy way of grouping things together. So, I usually have multiple tabs open in any session.

Clinton Vs. Trump | Who will win?

If you had asked me this question a couple of months ago or even just a month ago, my answer would have been Hillary Clinton without any but’s and if’s attached. But now, Its quite unclear.

I have been following this election from the beginning and I predicted it would be Hillary Clinton Vs. Trump for the final, long before others did. And, I assumed Hillary would win it in the finals very comfortably. But, What a ride it has been! It has become such a close call these days and rightfully so.

Map and FlatMap functions transform one collection in to another just like the map and flatmap functions in several other functional languages. In the context of Apache Spark, they transform one RDD in to another RDD.
