The first edition of this book was titled Networking Awesomely, in part because I thought networking was awesome, in part because I was very excited to be publishing a book. Truth be told, it was all I could do to keep myself from adding an exclamation point to an already enthusiastic moniker. Now, a little older, a little wiser, and with far more books under my belt, I’ve returned to rewrite this title. The aim was to share essentially the same ideas, but present them in a less repetitive, more concise and digestible fashion. I also wanted to publish something with superior editing and formatting, and a reduction in verbiage. Despite the change in name, presentation, and words I use to describe the concepts, I still believe the ideas presented in the following pages are awesome and worth sharing. They were revelatory to me as I picked them up over the years, and I still receive a large number of emails and in-person thanks when on tour from readers who gleaned helpful tidbits, and sometimes grand umbrella-concepts, that helped them grok what it is to build healthy, helpful, and long-lasting relationships with other people. I hope you find some value in these ideas, too.

Discover the practical aspects of implementing deep-learning solutions using the rich Python ecosystem. This book bridges the gap between the academic state-of-the-art and the industry state-of-the-practice by introducing you to deep learning frameworks such as Keras, Theano, and Caffe. The practicalities of these frameworks is often acquired by practitioners by reading source code, manuals, and posting questions on community forums, which tends to be a slow and a painful process. Deep Learning with Python allows you to ramp up to such practical know-how in a short period of time and focus more on the domain, models, and algorithms. This book briefly covers the mathematical prerequisites and fundamentals of deep learning, making this book a good starting point for software developers who want to get started in deep learning. A brief survey of deep learning architectures is also included. Deep Learning with Python also introduces you to key concepts of automatic differentiation and GPU computation which, while not central to deep learning, are critical when it comes to conducting large scale experiments. What You Will Learn Leverage deep learning frameworks in Python namely, Keras, Theano, and Caffe Gain the fundamentals of deep learning with mathematical prerequisites Discover the practical considerations of large scale experiments Take deep learning models to production Who This Book Is For Software developers who want to try out deep learning as a practical solution to a particular problem. Software developers in a data science team who want to take deep learning models developed by data scientists to production.

Groundbreaking Patterns for Building Simpler, More Powerful Networks InPatterns in Network Architecture, pioneer John Day takes a unique approach to solving the problem of network architecture. Piercing the fog of history, he bridges the gap between our experience from the original ARPANET and today’s Internet to a new perspective on networking. Along the way, he shows how socioeconomic forces derailed progress and led to the current crisis. Beginning with the seven fundamental, and still unanswered, questions identified during the ARPANET’s development,Patterns in Network Architecturereturns to bedrock and traces our experience both good and bad. Along the way, he uncovers overlooked patterns in protocols that simplify design and implementation and resolves the classic conflict between connection and connectionless while retaining the best of both. He finds deep new insights into the core challenges of naming and addressing, along with results from upper-layer architecture. All of this in Day’s deft hands comes together in a tour de force of elegance and simplicity with the annoying turn of events that the answer has been staring us in the face: Operating systems tell us even more about networking than we thought. The result is, in essence, the first “unified theory of networking,” and leads to a simpler, more powerful–and above all–more scalable network infrastructure. The book then lays the groundwork for how to exploit the result in the design, development, and management as we move beyond the limitations of the Internet. Using this new model, Day shows how many complex mechanisms in the Internet today (multihoming, mobility, and multicast) are, with this collapse in complexity, now simply a consequence of the structure. The problems of router table growth of such concern today disappear. The inescapable conclusion is that the Internet is an unfinished demo, more in the tradition of DOS than Unix, that has been living on Moore’s Law and 30 years of band-aids. It is long past time to get networking back on track. • Patterns in network protocols that synthesize “contradictory” approaches and simplify design and implementation • “Deriving” that networking is interprocess communication (IPC) yielding • A distributed IPC model that repeats with different scope and range of operation • Making network addresses topological makes routing purely a local matter • That in fact, private addresses are the norm–not the exception–with the consequence that the global public addresses required today are unnecessary • That mobility is dynamic multihoming and unicast is a subset of multicast, but multicast devolves into unicast and facilitates mobility • That the Internet today is more like DOS, but what we need should be more like Unix • For networking researchers, architects, designers, engineers Provocative, elegant, and profound,Patterns in Network Architecturetransforms the way you envision, architect, and implement networks.
