Cleaning House by Open Sourcing

I’m going to start open sourcing some of the code that I currently have in private repos. It’s not going to be much at first, because I tend to collaborate with others when writing code, or I write it for companies that would never consider open sourcing their code. However, I’m going to start now and I’m going to try to talk collaborators into letting me open source stuff that I write in the future.

Open sourcing some of this code might encourage me to make it more usable.

I’m starting with some code that I use to tinker with neural networks: dc-ann

It’s disorganized right now, but, in time, I’ll put up some examples of how to use it, convert it to a quicklisp project, and make it easier to use. Furthermore, the code, as released, leaves out the transfer-function and weight-initialization changes that make the neural network a deep-learning neural network. I’ll get those in as soon as I clean up that code in the private repo.

Here are some other bits that I’m tossing into the open source community now:
dc-affinity (Lisp code to demonstrate the effects of measuring Euclidean Distance between trigram vectors)
Utyls (Perl utilities that I use frequently)

More bits that I plan to release soon include a ton of Emacs Lisp code and more Perl utilities.
