Serverless Take 2: AWS CDK
The previous article taught us how we can easily deploy Serverless applications using the Serverless framework and a basic understanding of the AWS environment. Here, we will learn about AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK), use it to create AWS resources, and try AWS Cognito - an identity provider.
Redux Toolkit: Redux with Less Code Part I
Have you ever wanted to use Redux, but you didn’t because it requires too much boilerplate code? Configuring a Redux store is complicated and you need several packages to get Redux to work with React.

In part II, we will go deeper into using Redux Toolkit and its latest addition: RTK Query.
End-to-End Machine Learning: A Story
So, we talked about how we can use neural networks to build a face recognition system. Then we talked about word embeddings, a method for representing textual data. In this article, we are going to talk about all the steps in a typical machine learning project, from start to finish. Are you ready? “Yeah!”—you shout. Let’s go!
