  1. Keras: The Python Deep Learning library with Tensorflow and CNTK

    Hey, This is my first article, I hope you find informative.  Currently, I get interested in the AI & Machine Learning. And start learning by experimenting as well. I usually use Tensorflow and CNTK in Parallel. So, First I give a little Introduction to both like What they are and What they do?Tensorflow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional...
  2. Introduction to Google ARCore Development

    In the past couple of years, if not more, the technology of virtual, augmented and, lately, mixed realities have taken a huge leap forward both for consumers as well as enterprise. Initially augmented reality (AR) almost entirely consisted of overlaying data on the real world, triggered by a shape, a logo, a QR code, or something else that could be easily recognised. Most of all it was very similar to a heads up display. Not really interacting with the real world, not really being part of your reality.
  3. Contributing to .NET for Dummies

    Over the past few months in the little spare time that I have, I’ve managed to submit a handful of pull requests to various .NET-related repositories (e.g. coreclr, corefx, docs, etc.) and incredibly, they were accepted.Now, for some, this may not seem like a big deal. But it felt like a pretty big one to me so I thought I would take some time to elaborate on the process itself, share my experience, and hopefully dispel a few myths or misconceptions that you might have that may be holding you back...
  4. The Path is Null and Full of Squiggles

    I've been using Visual Studio 2017 since the earliest bits were available and I can confidently say, I'm a fan and highly recommend you give it a shot if you get a chance.With that being said, sometimes new features can cause things to blow up and this post is going to be discussing one of those such features, namely Lightweight Solution Load.Recently, I opened up a decently sized solution (~9 projects) and everything seemed in order. All of my dependencies were there, with no warning signs to be...
  5. Glyphfriend 2.1 Released! Now with Library Filtering

    It hasn't been too long since the latest 2.0 release of Glyphfriend, but with the release of Visual Studio 2017 coming around the corner, there were a few things that could use some improvement and polishing off before then.Message received, loud and clear.All of the changes that were made to make the extension more flexible actually resulted in it being more noisy. Glyphfriend would just serve everything it knew about. This has generally been regarded as a bad move, and thus library filtering is...
  6. Setup Eclipse CDT with cygwin

    Eclipse CDT is one of the powerful C++ IDEs in the world. However, it's not easy to configure it for a fresh new user.

Project -> Properties -> C/C++ General -> Preprocessor Include, select CDT GCC Built-in Compiler Settings Cygwin, check...
  7. Why starting as a freelance software dev isn't always a good idea? Or is it?

    So you are young and energetic wannabe developer. Your head is full of ideas, stackoverflow is your bible and you are ready to face the struggles of software developement for money. Cool! Let me tell you something.You learn at the university or other school, you feel better in coding every month and the truth is you'd like to start with your career as soon as possible, but going to work everyday doesn't feel tempting for now, despite your lack of experience. But hey! You got some friends and friends...
  8. Paginating data with Jquery Datatables and ASP.NET MVC

    Jquery and Bootstrap are certainly some of the most used libraries for web. It abstracts lots of complex implementations of javascript and CSS. For backend developers like me, It’s the best option so far, especially because my usability and design skills suck.However, I still find some web systems and websites which don’t implement a correct pagination getting all the data from database and leaving the work for the Jquery Datatable component. So, what’s the problem in that approach? I could list...

  10. Get to know your tools

    Tools give you power, but power needs to be used wisely. And by wisely I mean understanding the power you have in your hands. You can use a hammer both with screws and nails, but it is better for the later than for the former.Now, talking about programmers, this is quite more important. I’m not suggesting that you need to memorize all the options and shortcuts that your development environment has, but I’ve seen many cases when people start using an IDE, a framework or even a language based just...
