Hyperledger Fabric and Composer – First Practical Blockchain (Video Course)

I have just finished uploading a new video course about Hyperledger Fabric and Composer – First Practical Blockchain.

I made this course because I see many people talking about Bitcoin and blockchains but they don’t really know how the tech works! It’s all just a buzz word and that would hamper the true potential of the technology. So, here’s a brief course that will help you understand how Crypto Currencies (such as Bitcoin) work and get you started with your first blockchain and smart contract using Hyperledger Fabric — one of the most popular, modular frameworks for blockchains.

So, head over to the link above and get your intro in 1.5 hours.

Machine Learning Video Lectures

Update: If you are interested in getting a running start to machine learning and deep learning, I have created a course that I’m offering to my dedicated readers for just $9.99. Practical Deep Learning with Keras and Python.

I taught an introductory Machine Learning course to BS students at FAST Peshawar in Fall 2015. The feedback was quite positive so I decided to offer another course to the MS/PhD students in the next semester. The mode of teaching was also a bit different: we tried doing the pen-tablet-augmented-multimedia-slides model. The semester is still in progress but we have the core of the basics done now.

The lectures are in Urdu so might be easier to follow for those who understand the language. I will be uploading the future videos as they come up inshaallah. You can see the first video below and follow the complete collection on Vimeo here: https://vimeo.com/album/3770825

LaTeX Screencasts

I’ve started putting together a couple of screencasts for those who want to start working with LaTeX. These are aimed at the extreme newbie who wants to learn the basics and get up to speed with the typesetting tool. I’ll be updating this post as I put more videos online inshallah. For now, see the videos below or on Youtube. For best results, view in HD at full screen.

Auto Scale with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

In this video, we talk about Auto Scale feature of the Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Auto Scale allows AWS to automatically start new instances of AMIs as more and more load is put on the instance. You can define triggers (policies) that define what the low and high limits are. Whenever these limits are breached, instances can be started or stopped depending on the policies. In this video, we start from scratch and setup the Auto Scale feature.

All comments are welcome.

Introduction to Amazon Web Services [Video]

The first in a series of videos by CSRDU about Amazon Web Services (AWS). Here, we talk about the different web services and technologies offered by AWS. It’s supposed to make sense of the different services that AWS offers and whether you need them or not. (Click to view larger version on YouTube)
