Machine Learning with TensorFlow and Apache Kafka ft. Chris Mattmann

  • Notes

TensorFlow is an open source machine learning platform that can be used with Apache Kafka® for deep learning. Chris Mattmann, author of Machine Learning with TensorFlow, introduces us to TensorFlow as a Google technology that teaches computers how to think and make connections like humans do. For example, when there is a signifier that the mind processes, out comes a label to the object in front of you. TensorFlow is Google's version of wrangling various technologies to help group them together and work smoothly as large amounts of data flow through. 

Chris also breaks down neural networks, how technology simulates cerebral processes that take place when our visual cortex receives a new image, plus a use case that involves Apache Kafka and event streaming to achieve TensorFlow's goals.

Explore, Expand, and Extract with 3X Thinking ft. Kent Beck

Kent Beck chats about various topics of broad interest to developers, including some of his books. He shares about what it’s like to experiment and implement new ideas, especially when others doubt what you're trying to achieve, as well as the difference between refactoring and tidying, his involvement with agile software and test-driven development, and what exactly test-commit-revert is. And yes, Kent talks a little bit about event streaming too!
