NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there alongside .NET Rocks! to catch all of the action with our Ask Me Anything! sessions.
As usual there were a host of top industry pros talking about various subjects related to software development. This year, SSW TV worked alongside .NET Rocks! to run and entire track of live interviews with some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.
While at NDC in Sydney, Carl and Richard talked to Joe Albahari about using LINQPad to create neural nets from scratch. LINQPad is an interactive development environment for .NET – originally focused on helping you build LINQ expressions. But as Joe explains, it can be used for all sorts of interactive coding experiences – including learning to build neural networks. Joe talks through the fundamentals of neural nets and what it’s like to build neural nets yourself. Even if you move on to more advanced machine learning tooling, learning the fundamentals are useful!
