Welcome to the Ranch Matt

Java community had removed few hurdle especially keeping students in mind. you can REPL (read, evaluate, print and loop) with Jshell, a good start for even kids.

Over a period of time students will be able to appreciate the underlying tools and technologies.

Getting things done quick has become today's norm, I ask chatgpt if I had to get started. I ask it to write code for me and correct code for me. It all looks awesome, staying in context over a chat on the topic, yet there are few limitations, beyond certain level you have to again face the reality and start digging into the underlying stuff.

We reach out community like stackoverflow and if we don't find any solution we started digging deeper for our unique problem.

Java had been transparent, innovative and successful in its endeavours in building a strong community, better processes for sustaining and maintaining it position in building better systems and softwares.

Datascientist prefer python, as they are best for throw away code after analysis, they don't maintain code for decades. Web Page designers prefer javascripts as they are more interested in manipulating html.

Decades of maintenance of softwares had been possible with Java. People who write python and javascript prefer java for preparing systems and softwares once they want to stabilize and maintain their code base.

Learning any new programming language will be exciting to get started. "absolute beginner guide" seems providing a very systematic approach and power boost for beginners, Matt seems to have carefully laid his course of thoughts for helping students of this age & era.

All the very best students and Matt.

Good to see you here. Welcome Sourabh Sharma

Thanks Thushan. Handwriting recognition and image to text conversion are few use cases i could quote which are similar to image classification/segmentation and combination of text and image.

My imagination on CNN is that I just recognize an object by zooming in and zooming out and try to classify or segment based on the recognized features.
For RNN, it makes a great sense to take LSTM model and assume how we read text and analyze the context of the sentence or a paragraph. we also can go forward and backward on sentences like in bi-directonal Networks. Definitely we have seqtoseq, manytoone and onetomany or many to many models.

Beyond these general example which puts up itself into the context of our human eye, reading skills and listening skills. is it possible to apply them in Strategic Games like what Open AI did? how complex such system will be and what will be general compute resource required in production systems.
I found some interesting information on few thing beyond deep NN in the preview pages of your book

Is tensor flow is for creating DNN pipelines, do tensor flow support stats based models to be combined with DNN? what are the advantages? For a newbie, how one should imbibe such facilities?
Mostly in all courses regarding deep learning and tensorflow, i commonly see the following examples,
1. Image Classification (CNN)
2. Image Segementations (CNN)
3. Text Classification (RNN)
4. Text Translation (RNN)
and mostly something to do with text, images and speech.

why do they form the foundations for anyone learning deep learning?
While it is interesting to learn about Do's with tensor flow in the book, it is also interesting to learn don't dos like Machine learning if we could do it with Scikitlearn etc.,

Can you please elaborate on it more? Is it really necessary to know what we should not be doing with tensor flow? What are the pre-dominant mistakes people do?
Welcome Thushan Ganegedara. Congratz on the book release. All the very best on the promotions.

Hello Sebastian, Welcome to the Ranch! Happy to see you here with your new book. Congratz...
how to handle loading of Runtime Module (via Service Provider Interface) based on Version? It seems we don't have any Common Module in JDK which could do that, please correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you very much. There are not many online resources about JPMS layers, turning to your book for reference could definitely help me and others to kick start on such advanced topics.

Sander Mak, Thanks for pointing out the example from the jigsaw-dev mailing list. Do you think that we may get some IDE support on the same instead of passing the argument --patch-module. Because as of now I find IDE like Intellij moves the module to classpath automatically for testing.
