About the Author

Muhammad Ahmad
Muhammad Ahmad

I am a Software Developer with huge interests in Artificial Intelligence and making things from scratch. In order to satisfy this, I have completed numerous courses on Coursera including the Deep Learning Specialisation.

I have also made neural networks, compilers, interpreters, Operating Systems, emulators and much more from scratch. I aim to convert this experience into high quality resources for like-minded people, who have the desire to make things from scratch but do not know where to start.

Finally, the best way to learn is to make something from scratch, as you are explaining things to a machine that has no conception of what you are building.
