Why do some people get rich off of their ideas, and others are not able to reach even 100 customers? The renowned Stanford University, which is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, offers a course where students can learn the recipes for founding a successful startup. This course is also available as an audio podcast and on YouTube. Here are my takeaways from 20 lectures with such well-known teachers as Peter Thiel (PayPal), Paul Graham (Y Combinator), and Alex Schultz (Facebook).
Yesterday my friend said something like "I’m writing simple offline app, I don’t need these streams and all that jazz". I was confused, but I thought, that there may be other coders in this delusion.
Below, literally in 50 lines I will show, on known example that reactivity is:
a) not about offline/online
b) very easy
c) very good for simplifying almost any code
Statistics about startup funding show that 77% of small businesses rely on personal savings for their initial funds. One-third of such companies use less than $5,000, while $10,000 is generally needed to get a business started. Only 0.05% of startups raise venture capital.
These numbers show the importance of being able to save resources every time you can. And today, we will look into some practical ways of doing that and mention some handy tools.
Though it seems we are just a few months away from reaching 2020, these months are also important in the field of software development. Here in this article, we will see how the coming year 2020 will change the lives of software developers!
Future Software Development Is Here!
Traditional software development is about developing software by writing code and following some fixed rules. But the present-day software development witnessed a paradigm shift with advances in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. With the integration of these three technologies, developers will be able to build software solutions that learn the instructions and add extra features and patterns in data that are needed for the desired outcome.

Let’s Try Out With Some Code
Over time, the neural network software development systems have become more complex in terms of integrations as well as layers of functionality and interfaces. Developers can build a very simple neural network with Python 3.6. Here’s an example of a program that does binary classification with 1 or 0.
Of course, we can start by creating a neural network class:
import numpy as np
Applying the Sigmoid function:
def sigmoid (): return 1/(1 + np.exp(-x)) def derivatives_sigmoid (): return x * (1-x)
Training the Model With Initial Weights and Biases:
epoch=10000 lr=0.1 inputlayer_neurons = X.shape hiddenlayer_neurons = 3 output_neurons = 1 wh=np.random.uniform(size=(inputlayer_neurons,hiddenlayer_neurons)) bh=np.random.uniform(size=(1,hiddenlayer_neurons)) wout=np.random.uniform(size=(hiddenlayer_neurons,output_neurons)) bout=np.random.uniform(size=(1,output_neurons))
For beginners, if you need help regarding neural networks, you can get in touch with top software development company.Or, you can hire AI/ML developers to work on your project.
Hi! Though the 2019 conference season is not over yet, we'd like to talk about the bug-finding challenges we offered to visitors at our booth during the past conferences. Starting with the fall of 2019, we've been bringing a new set of challenges, so we can now reveal the solutions to the previous tasks of 2018 and the first half of 2019 – after all, many of them came from previously posted articles, and we had a link or QR code with information about the respective articles printed on our challenge leaflets.
ML.NET Model Builder
This release of Model Builder comes with bug fixes and two exciting new features:
- Image classification scenario – locally train image classification models with your own images
- Try your model – make predictions on sample input data right in the UI

Bill of Materials
Try .NET has grown to support more interactive experiences across the web with runnable code snippets, interactive documentation generator for .NET core with dotnet try global tool, and now .NET in Jupyter Notebooks.
After hitting the keyboard buttons for the past 20 minutes, as if he was typing for his life, ghostinushanka turns to me with a half-mad look in his eyes and a sly smile, “Dude, I think I got it.
Look at this” — as he points to one of the characters on screen — “I bet my red hat that if we add what I’ve just sent you here” — as he points to another place in the code — “there will be no error anymore.”
Slightly puzzled and tired I modify the sed expression we’ve been figuring out for some time now, save the file and run
systemctl varnish reload. Error message gone…
“Those emails I’ve exchanged with the candidate,” my colleague continues, as his smile changes to a wide and genuine grin, “It suddenly struck me that this is the very same exact problem!”
You can download .NET Core 3.1 Preview 2 on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
ASP.NET Core and EF Core are also releasing updates today.
Visual Studio 16.4 Preview 3 and Visual Studio for Mac 8.4 Preview 3 are also releasing today. They are required updates to use .NET Core 3.1 Preview 2. Visual Studio 16.4 includes .NET Core 3.1, so just updating Visual Studio will give you both releases.
In 2017, Google declared Kotlin as its second official language for Android application development. The language itself proving to be a modern, intuitive and pragmatic programming language. That’s why Kotlin's app development community is growing at a fast pace. For android app developers, using Kotlin with Java can reduce excessive boilerplate code which is a huge win for them.
In order to heighten productivity, Kotlin language comes with amazing functional features that support Java interoperability. It has effectively improved the coding experience of developers by introducing concise expressions, abstractions, and improved syntax.
I frequently hear questions like "How to implement authentication in an Android app?", "Where to store a PIN?", "Hey man, will I be secure if I implement an authentication feature in such a way?" and a lot of the kind. I got really tired answering these questions so I decided to write all my thoughts about it once to share with all questioners.
- UI-dense forms over data (FOD) applications
- Responsive low-latency UI
- Applications that need to run offline/disconnected
- Applications with dependencies on custom device drivers
This is just the beginning for Windows application development on .NET Core. Read on to learn more about the benefits of .NET Core for building Windows applications.
An online chatbot is a recent trend on the market. But how to interact with the clients that are offline? A significant percentage of people prefer to interact over the phone. And the business needs either a large staff of operators or a voice communication automating solution. We are offering a solution to reduce workload and costs (and will barely affect your developers’ busyness).
Today I'm going to tell about how is test task to job interview became the library Image Comparison. It's an open-source library, which is hosting on GitHub.
Before I start, let me introduce myself. My name is Roman. I'm a husband and father. I'm a software engineer in Epam Systems with 4 years of experience in IT.
The main idea of this topic is to tell, that creating an open-source product it's not wasting time, no! It's an amazing experience, which is going from all the open-source community. It's a time when you're a developer, project manager, product manager in one head.
While this library is growing I have been working with people from more than 10(!!) countries, such as the USA, Germany, Chine, India, Russia, Ukraine, etc.
Let's move on from the start of this story…
With the Asian market rapidly growing, almost every ambitious IT product sooner or later faces the challenge of localization for this region. And without knowing all its facets any localization project is rather doomed to fail. That’s why we at Alconost have decided to translate and share with you the article on localizing games for Asia by Plarium, a global game developer with solid experience in game localization. We found here some useful approaches that are also valid for our localization projects and hope that you’ll like the reading, too.
For Western developers, entering the Asian market is like entering outer space, only 30 megabytes heavier. Localizing games into Japanese, Chinese, and Korean requires a Herculean effort. You need to account for certain technical requirements and scrupulously research the market and the target audience’s mindset. But if this is your dream, keep reading — our experience should stand you in good stead.
