Here;s something a little lighter given the news of late.

We’ve all seen programming as depicted in movies and television and laughed at the sheer absurdity of it.

Joma Tech ponders what programming would look like in Anime.

A junior engineer tries solve a coding problem, but he has trouble finding the solution. He needs help, will he be able to solve it?

Ted Neward explains why (for developers) the next five years will be about language:

Thanks to the plateau of per-chip performance increases and the resulting need to work better with multi-core CPUs, the relative difficulty of mapping user requirements to general-purpose programming languages, the emergence of language-agnostic “virtual machines” that abstract away the machine, the relative ceiling of functionality we’re finding on the current crop of object-oriented languages, and the promise and power of productivity of dynamically-typed or more loosely-typed languages, we’re about to experience a renaissance of innovation in programming languages.

Come hear why this is, and what practicing programmers need to do in order to ride the forefront–instead of the trailing edge–of this new wave in computer science.

Caleb Curry has everything you need to know to get started as a C++ Programming Software developer / Software engineer — starting off with the super basics and then to intermediate topics.

Siraj Raval shows off examples of machine learning apps from his students.

If you’re wondering about my stance on the recent controversies around Siraj, I recorded a Data Point about that.

Machine Learning powers almost every internet service we use these days, but it’s rare to find a full pipeline example of machine learning being deployed in a web app. In this episode, I’d like to present 5 full-stack machine learning demos submitted as midterm projects from the students of my current course. The midterm assignment was to create a paid machine learning web app, and after receiving countless incredible submissions, I’ve decided to share my favorite 5 publicly. I was surprised by how many students in the course had never coded before and to see them building a full-stack web app in a few weeks was a very fulfilling experience. Use these examples as a template to help you ideate on potential business ideas to make a positive impact in the world using machine learning. And if you’d like, be sure to reach out and support each of the students I’ve demoed here today in any way can you offer. They’ve been working their butts off. Enjoy!

Presentation notebook:

Dani, a game developer, recently made a game and decided to train an AI to play it.

A couple of weeks ago I made a video “Making a Game in ONE Day (12 Hours)”, and today I’m trying to teach an A.I to play my game!

Basically I’m gonna use Neural Networks to make the A.I learn to play my game.

This is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m really happy I finally got around to do it. Some of the biggest inspirations for this is obviously carykh, Jabrils & Codebullet!
