HTTP forms the foundation of the web, which itself forms the foundation of most modern developer stacks But how much do we really know about HTTP, beyond the basics?

HTTP has been gradually adding lots of new and exotic headers, and more are on the way. Learn about current best practices with Vary, Link, Content-Security-Policy, Referrer-Policy, Client-Hints, Clear-Site-Data and Alt-Svc, upcoming features such as Feature-Policy and proposals like Variants, Early-Hints and Origin-Policy.

Neural networks have proven themselves very capable of performing tasks that have eluded researchers for years. When you find out that no one really knows why neural networks behave the way they do, it only adds to their mystique.

The fields of eXplainable AI (XAI) and Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency in Machine Learning (FAT/ML) aim to provide insight into how neural networks comes to the conclusions that they do.

If you’ve never seen a hackspace up close and personal, then you’re missing out. There are quite a few around the world. Microsoft has several on its larger campuses. In Microsoft terms, they are referred to as the Garage.  There’s even on at the Rockville Science Center.

Hackspaces are locations where people can work on various hardware projects, have access to specialized equipment, and learn various aspects of hardware and software programming.

In this video from Computerphile, take a virtual tour of the hackspace in Nottingham, UK.
