Road to creating optimized applications In Detail Both the web and mobile development strategies have developed noticeably since inception and will continue improving in the future as well. Angular 2 is a framework that is well equipped with almost everything that you need to build a complex web or mobile application. Not only does it bring web and mobile development under a single umbrella, it excels at the performance it provides at both ends. This Learning Path will help you gain a strong foundation in Angular 2 and cover a few hands-on projects that will be tied with real world scenarios. Initially, the Learning path covers basic concepts and best practices that will get you up and working with Angular 2. It then covers the basics of creating components and simple applications and then moves on to the concepts that will help you create and deploy the apps efficiently. And then, the last segment covers creating complex applications that will use advanced features of Angular 2. After completing the course, you will be able to create complex stand-alone applications by using Angular 2. Prerequisites : The learner should be experienced with working on the previous version of Angular. (Angular 1.X) Resources : Code downloads and errata: Migrating to Angular 2 – Second Edition Angular 2 Essentials Angular 2 Deep Dive Angular 2 Projects PATH PRODUCTS This path navigates across the following products (in sequential order): Migrating to Angular 2 – Second Edition (1h 33m) Angular 2 Essentials (2h 27m) Angular 2 Deep Dive (3h 14m) Angular 2 Projects (2h 53m)

Tackle common machine learning problems with Google’s TensorFlow library and build deployable solutions About This Video Use raw real-world data to create pipelines to train and apply classifiers using TenserFlow Productionize challenges and solutions Go through a full lifecycle of a TensorFlow solution with a practical demonstration ofsystem setup, training, validation, and creating pipelines for the real world In Detail TensorFlow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API. This video addresses common commercial machine learning problems using Google’s TensorFlow library. It will not only help you discover what TensorFlow is and how to use it, but will also show you the unbelievable things that can be done in machine learning with the help of examples/real-world use cases. We start off with the basic installation of Tensorflow, moving on to covering the unique features of the library such as Data Flow Graphs, training, and visualization of performance with TensorBoard—all within an example-rich context using problems from multiple sources.. The focus is on introducing new concepts through problems that are coded and solved over the course of each section.

Build modular applications that are easy to scale using the most powerful components and design patterns that React can offer you right now About This Book Dive into the core patterns and components of React in order to master your application's design Improve their debugging skills using the DevTools This book is packed with easy-to-follow examples that can be used to create reusable code and extensible designs Who This Book Is For If you want to increase your understanding of React and apply it to real-life application development, then this book is for you. What You Will Learn Write clean and maintainable code Create reusable components applying consolidated techniques Use React effectively in the browser and node Choose the right styling approach according to the needs of the applications Use server-side rendering to make applications load faster Build high-performing applications by optimizing components In Detail Taking a complete journey through the most valuable design patterns in React, this book demonstrates how to apply design patterns and best practices in real-life situations, whether that's for new or already existing projects. It will help you to make your applications more flexible, perform better, and easier to maintain – giving your workflow a huge boost when it comes to speed without reducing quality. We'll begin by understanding the internals of React before gradually moving on to writing clean and maintainable code. We'll build components that are reusable across the application, structure applications, and create forms that actually work. Then we'll style React components and optimize them to make applications faster and more responsive. Finally, we'll write tests effectively and you'll learn how to contribute to React and its ecosystem. By the end of the book, you'll be saved from a lot of trial and error and developmental headaches, and you will be on the road to becoming a React expert. Style and approach The design patterns in the book are explained using real-world, step-by-step examples. For each design pattern, there are hints about when to use it and when to look for something more suitable. This book can also be used as a practical guide, showing you how to leverage design patterns. Downloading the example code for this book.
