JupyterLab Desktop App - live!
JupyterLab App is the cross-platform standalone application distribution of JupyterLab. It is a self-contained desktop application which bundles a Python environment with several popular Python libraries ready to use in scientific computing and data science workflows.
PyTorch3D - A library for deep learning with 3D data
PyTorch3D includes a modular differentiable renderer. The implementation consists of composable units, allowing users to easily extend the renderer to support custom lighting or shading effects. The computationally heavy rasterization step has parallel implementations in PyTorch, C++, and CUDA, as well as comprehensive tests to verify correctness.
Computer Scientist Explains Machine Learning in 5 Levels of Difficulty
WIRED has challenged computer scientist and Hidden Door cofounder and CEO Hilary Mason to explain machine learning to 5 different people; a child, teen, a college student, a grad student and an expert.
New Podcast 🎙️
Dominique is a senior aerospace consultant with more than 20 years’ experience and advanced expertise in Finite Element Analysis of static and dynamic problems for linear and nonlinear structural behaviors.
He is the author of the FEA book "Practical Finite Element Analysis for Mechanical Engineers", a book about the best practical methods and guidelines for the development and validation of finite element models. It gives to the structural engineers the keys to developing accurate and reliable finite element models.

Course of the Week - Python for Everybody Specialization
This Specialization builds on the success of the Python for Everybody course and will introduce fundamental programming concepts including data structures, networked application program interfaces, and databases, using the Python programming language. In the Capstone Project, you’ll use the technologies learned throughout the Specialization to design and create your own applications for data retrieval, processing, and visualization.
Book of the Week
Rxteal-World Cryptography teaches practical techniques for day-to-day work as a developer, sysadmin, or security practitioner. There’s no complex math or jargon: Modern cryptography methods are explored through clever graphics and real-world use cases. You’ll learn building blocks like hash functions and signatures; cryptographic protocols like HTTPS and secure messaging; and cutting-edge advances like post-quantum cryptography and cryptocurrencies. This book is a joy to read—and it might just save your bacon the next time you’re targeted by an adversary after your data.
Later sometimes becomes never.
