Tensorflow integrating Keras means Google is throwing it's gigantic weight behind Keras. 
 
How is this for big news almost slipping through unnoticed. Tensorflow integrating Keras.

As an early warning to everyone following my Collection, I will be more focused on Machine Learning in the future, more specifically Deep Learning. Once you get into Deep Learning, you will understand my obsession. There will still be plenty of Python seeing that Python and Machine Learning are inseparable like bacon & eggs. #deeplearning #machinelearning #python

Top 10 #python libraries for 2016 - can't wait to get my claws dirty trying out a few of them. 
Last year, we did a recap with what we thought were the best Python libraries of 2015, which was widely shared within the Python community (see post in r/Python). A year has gone by, and again it is time to give due credit for the awesome work that has been done by the open source community this year. Again, we try to avoid most established choices such as Django, Flask, etc.

I just had to share. Avoid the word very at almost all cost to immediately improve your writing.

Some light hearted agile advice 
As a developer, you can never be too agile! Our infographic shows you some (fun) ways to be as agile as possible.

Visualise the progress of the training of your Keras model with graphs.

#deeplearning
 
I have started a project to easily add a matplotlib graph to the training of your Keras model to visualise progress. I have only implemented Accuracy and Loss so far, and the development of a Confusion Matrix is in progress.

Let's collaborate - send me a Pull Request with any changes or enhancements

Any feedback and ideas welcome.

As a programmer it is always good to have a few systems admin skills. #Powershell is an excellent tool and the closest Microsoft will ever get to Bash

I'm testing the waters of Deep Learning - any feedback will be much appreciated.
 
I have recently started a list of resources I have found useful while diving deep into the world of deep learning. It is not meant to be the difinitive guide, and it has a strong bias towards Python and Keras as they are my tools of choice, but certainly not the only tools, or even claiming to be the best, just the once that have worked for me. In the beginning it was extremely difficult to find quality material to read and work throughh out of the vast amounts of deep learning content and hopefully my list help someone else cutting through the fat. I believe it is important to have a shallow understanding of Machine Learning as a whole, and a deep understanding of a few select areas, and therefore you might find a few resources not specific to Deep Learning but certainly within the field of Machine Learning.

I would love to hear from the community, where did your journey take you, which resources is a must for anyone starting out and where is it taking you?
