Xamarin Tools: Components, Components, Components!

The Xamarin tool ecosystem is gaining popularity, as more developers continue to build tools with mobility in mind. Here's how to use them in your projects.

Neural Network Training Using Simplex Optimization

Simplex optimization is one of the simplest algorithms available to train a neural network. Understanding how simplex optimization works, and how it compares to the more commonly used back-propagation algorithm, can be a valuable addition to your machine learning skill set.

Responding to Events with TypeScript and Backbone

Peter upgrades his Backbone/Typescript to respond to the event raised when the user selects an item in a dropdown list by retrieving related data from a Web API service.

Compiler Basics How-To, Part 4: Improving the Parser

Now you have compiler fundamentals down pat, let's move on to some of the techniques you can use to improve the parser's design and performance.

Simplifying Cross-Platform Mobile App Development with Xamarin.Forms

Lots of decisions go into creating cross-platform apps. Without Xamarin.Forms, the decision process is almost too unwieldy. Here's how it can simplify your mobile development.

Web API Documentation Tools

A look at some of the tools available to automate the creation of documentation for your Web API.

Creating Custom HTTPClient Handlers

Accessing Web APIs can be easily done using the HTTPClient Handler. This class expedites the development process in accessing data from a Web API, and allows for customizing the client handlers when the need arises.

Understanding Neural Network Batch Training: A Tutorial

There are two different techniques for training a neural network: batch and online. Understanding their similarities and differences is important in order to be able to create accurate prediction systems.

How To Refactor For Dependency Injection, Part 4: Configuration Changes

Ondrej Balas continues his series on refactoring code for dependency injection, looking at patterns and strategies for changing application behavior after it has already been compiled.

Retrieving Data with Backbone and TypeScript

Peter creates an AJAX-enabled application using TypeScript with Backbone that talks to a Web API service. He also upgrades to the latest version of Backbone TypeScript support, causing several things to break -- but it does result in better, simpler code.

Neural Network Weight Decay and Restriction

Weight decay and weight restriction are two closely related, optional techniques that can be used when training a neural network. This article explains exactly what weight decay and weight restriction are, and how to use them with an existing neural network application or implement them in a custom application.

Standardized Navigation Principles for Android App Development

Navigation in mobile devices is an important consideration. If a user isn't able to navigate an app, he might quickly abandon it. Learn the navigation principles of Android to keep this from happening to you.

How to Automate IIS 7 Configuration with .NET

Are you tired of manually configuring IIS sites (adding Web sites, application pools, virtual directories and so on)? Use C# and the Microsoft.Web.Administration Namespace to simplify your life (or at least IIS configuration).

Deep Neural Networks: A Getting Started Tutorial

Deep Neural Networks are the more computationally powerful cousins to regular neural networks. Learn exactly what DNNs are and why they are the hottest topic in machine learning research.

Implementing Binary JSON in ASP.NET Web API 2.1

Visual Studio 2013 came with a new version of Web API. The Web API 2.1 update includes a host of new features, including support for Binary JSON. Learn how to leverage BSON by building a Web API 2.1 service.
