Tensorflow and deep learning - without a PhD. The slides from my Tel Aviv presentation and if you scroll to the last slide, there is even a step-by-step codelab: https://goo.gl/pHeXe7

Everything you need to know to solve a problem that has kept generations of PhDs busy, with 100 lines of Python/Tensorflow code.

How far should Web API definition languages go?

Should they describe the whole Web API, and could it explain additional aspects like its behavior, the tests that shows that an implementation conforms to a specification, and more.

I contributed this article to +Nordic APIs recently.
API definition languages like OpenAPI Spec, API Blueprint, and RAML define elements and structures, but as standards in the API industry evolve, however, their purpose and design are under continuous scrutiny. Specifically, the extensibility of API specifications with additional elements and feature sets comes into question.

Developer relations / advocacy / evangelism definitely have an impact on the developer population, but is it possible to define concrete metrics to prove that it's worth for a company to invest in that, and demonstrate results?

Discover DHC by Restlet

A detailed overview of what you can do with DHC!
You’ve certainly heard about DHC (aka Dev HTTP Client) joining the Restlet family a few months ago. DHC is an awesome tool to interact with REST services.

With linear algebra, you could all sorts of things: ranking in search engines, linear programming for optimizations, error correcting codes, signal analysis like the Fourier transform, graphics, facial recognition, predictions, and more.

However, if the authorities find out that you're linked to Al Gebra, you might have trouble at the airport :)

Introduction
As Head of Groovy Development for SpringSource, a division of VMware, Guillaume Laforge is the official Groovy Project Manager, and the spec lead of JSR-241, the Java Specification Request that standardizes the Groovy dynamic language. 

He initiated the creation of the Grails web application framework, and founded the Gaelyk project, a lightweight toolkit for developing applications in Groovy for Google App Engine

He is also a frequent conference speaker presenting Groovy, Grails, Gaelyk, Domain-Specific Languages at JavaOne, GR8Conf, SpringOne2GX, QCon, and Devoxx, among others. 

Guillaume also co-authored Groovy in Action along with Dierk König and Paul King, two famous Groovy committers.

Before founding G2One, which was acquired by SpringSource in late 2008, and taking the role of VP Technology, Guillaume worked for OCTO Technology, a consultancy focusing on architecture and agile methodologies. While at OCTO, Guillaume developed new offerings around Groovy and Grails for its customers.

I'm not a big coffee drinker, but the one I got there was really awesome! If you think coffee is not your kind of drink, take a coffee there, and it might change your mind! Highly recommended!
