# A “quick” introduction to PyMC3 and Bayesian models, Part I

*In this post, I give a “brief”, practical introduction using a specific and hopefully relate-able example drawn from real data.…*

*The original intent of this post was to take a real-life project with GraphQL and to see the performance of gRPC against HTTP. Instead, we ended up using the awesome GraphCool…*

The mode is one of the basic statistics which is defined as the most common value over an array.

On September 2nd, 2015, President Peña of Mexico will give his 4th State of the Country address to 120 million Mexicans (who will actually watch is another matter entirely).

In the beginning, there was Statistics, and for a time, it was good: it allowed Fisher to measure farm productivity. Then came Computer Science, and for a time, it was good: combined with Stats, it allowed the allies to save lives and fuel in WW2. Then came the IT barbarians, with their tool-centric religions, fads and next-coolest-framework cult. Analytics went downhill from there.
