Each of the chapters contains a hand on assignment which results in a working stand-alone project. For the chapter on functional programming readers learn to put together a blackjack game which makes use of functional style programming for generating, sorting, and dealing cards. You can find the source code for the game on Github.
In the chapter on TensorFlow.js we use existing models to identify items held up to a webcam, and even do some transfer learning to train our model to identify specific objects of our choice.
As part of making the video course I'll be going through each chapter and recording a walk through for people to follow along with.
The book which came out this month seems to be doing relatively well so far. We've made "#1 new release" in the sub-category of "internet browsers" on Amazon. Our overall rank in that category has jumped up to #11 as of today. If you're interested leave a comment or contact me by other means and I'll be sure to get you a free copy of the PDF version.
That's all I have to say for now, below I'm posting associated links, and the description, Thanks!
- Apply the core concepts of functional programming
- Build a Node.js project that uses the Express.js library to host an API
- Create unit tests for a Node.js project to validate it
- Use the Cheerio library with Node.js to create a basic web scraper
- Develop a React interface to build processing flows
- Use callbacks as a basic way to bring control back
You'll start by learning how to represent an HTML document in the Document Object Model (DOM). Then, you'll combine your knowledge of the DOM and Node.js to create a web scraper for practical situations. As you read through further lessons, you'll create a Node.js-based RESTful API using the Express library for Node.js. You'll also understand how modular designs can be used for better reusability and collaboration with multiple developers on a single project. Later lessons will guide you through building unit tests, which ensure that the core functionality of your program is not affected over time. The book will also demonstrate how constructors, async/await, and events can load your applications quickly and efficiently. Finally, you'll gain useful insights into functional programming concepts such as immutability, pure functions, and higher-order functions.
Get up to speed with core concepts such as modularity and functional programming to write efficient code
