ML.NET 1.0 RC Announced. What does it mean?

Microsoft has already announced a new the ML.NET 1.0 RC (Release Candidate) (version 1.0.0-preview). This is going to be the last version before the final ML.NET 1.0 in Q2 of 2019. It means soon we will be able to use machine learning with C# using a stable version of the library.
It seems that in the 95% of the functionality in RC is going to be a part of the stable 1.0 version. Nevertheless, some of the packages will remain in the review even after release.
These packages are:
  • TensorFlow components
  • Onnx components
  • TimeSeries components
  • Recommendadtions components
The full list of the preview packages here.

In this release (ML.NET 1.0 RC) Microsoft has initially concluded main API changes and for the next sprint, they are planning to focusing on documentation and samples improvements and also addressing major critical issues if needed.

I want to believe that their goal is to avoid any new breaking changes moving forward. And it all good news for those, who wanted to start use machine learning without changing their favorite language. Based on the list of changes now is a good time to start learning and preparing integrations.

Also in RC release were fixed problems with the use of TensorFlow models, that were introduced in version 0.11. You can check out additional release notes for 1.0 RC here.
You can find a list of other breaking changes here.

Get ready for ML.NET 1.0 before it releases! Next resources will be useful for going further:

Starting with Docker and ASP.NET Core

I love the .NET world. But for me, it always felt strange that you can run your code only inside Windows ecosystem. But now, with .NET Core, you can develop and run .NET application on Linux. Now you can use all the benefits of the Linux platform. One of such benefits is the ability to use Docker natively.

Now all major cloud services offer direct Docker containers deploy. It means you shouldn't worry about dependencies and software versions - everything is inside your container. That's why I decided to learn about Docker and share it with you here.

In this tutorial, you will learn what are ASP.NET Core and Docker, and how to use them together.
ASP.NET Core What is ASP.NET Core? Microsoft defines ASP.NET Core as:
ASP.NET Core is a cross-platform, high-performance, open-source framework for building modern, cloud-based, Internet-connected applications. What about .NET Core?  NET  Core is a framework that supports ASP.NET. It is a cross-platform, open-source re-implementation …

Caching strategies

One of the easiest and most popular ways to increase system performance is to use caching. When we introduce caching, we automatically duplicate our data. It's very important to keep your cache and data source in sync (more or less, depends on the requirements of your system) whenever changes occur in the system.
In this article, we will go through the most common cache synchronization strategies, their advantages, and disadvantages, and also popular use cases.

Fundamentals of Testing for Programmers

Testing is an important part of a software development. Testing is tightly coupled with development and many teams include not only developers but also testers (or even whole testing department). Because of this tight coupling, it is nice when testers and developers can share a common dictionary. With this goal, I'm posting here my notes on this topic.

In this post, I will try to highlight what is testing, how it's connected with quality assurance and quality management. And also will describe seven testing principles and will path you through a fundamental test process.
