It is that time again for more machine learning! This time it is actually something that you can totally build and something that Frank shipped inside of his application to do code prediction using Python, Keras, PlaidML, and CoreML! We talk about the main use case, the route Frank took to create the machine learning model, what hardware and software he used, and the final outcome to predict code while you type.

We tackle a listener submitted topic this week of how we make decisions between performance, frameworks, and convenience when building applications. It is an interesting question when choosing a framework or library and their trade-offs. Frank sees it a bit differently than James does when building apps. We look at how we have built apps from our present, past, and future when we look at developer productivity. Follow Us Frank: Twi... Read more

We get a little crazy this week and dive into three topics that we know almost nothing about. First up is a little web development for Ghost with gulp, handlebars, and sass. Then we dive into more machine learning with ML.NET and wrap up with our new favorite way to read in streams with Pipelines. To be honest, we do know something about them and think they are super cool, so you should check them out. Follow Us Frank: Twitter, Bl... Read more
