I developed a library that do matrix operations (dot product, sum, multiplation, etc).
Then, I write a simple neural network, feedfoward, with only 1 hidden layer.
I learned about the maths beahind backpropagation, what is an activation function, why the matrix bias is added, and so on.
With this library, I trained a model that can solve XOR.
✋ Hey ! Before you go 🏃
Have you noticed that this website is called 'software on the road'?
That's because I'm a digital nomad and I write software, while I'm on the road.
Well, not while I'm driving, but when travel by plane, train or bus to kill some time and stay productive.
But working with a laptop all the time can be bad for your posture. So to avoid back pain I use a stand for my laptop.
If you plan to travel the world, work from cafes, or even from coworking spaces, make sure to pack an external keyboard, a mouse , and this practical and transportable laptop stand.
It works perfect with my MacBook Air, fits pretty well.
For just little money you can avoid back injuries and neck pains, but it's just a bit of kindly advice from an old developer 😊
