I’m really enjoying Angular and Azure, but getting them to work well together is sometimes a pain.

I really like Microsoft Azure, but the process of deploying an Angular 6+ app is complex, and filled with some very big hidden gotchas. As of this writing, you cannot just spin up a web app instance, push Angular code to it from a repository and have it run; you need to take…

I’m working on a neural-style transfer project, and have several machine learning models trained to render input photos in particularly styles. The current set is below; input image on the left, output image on the right, with model name in lower right hand corner. I’ve got a few clear favorites, but I’d love to see if they match yours. Which 3-5 do you like? 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11…
