What's the difference between a method and a function?

A function lives on its own:

const bark = () => {
  console.log('wof!')
}

bark()

or

function bark() => {
  console.log('wof!')
}

bark()

A method is a function assigned to an object property:

const dog = {
  bark: () => {
    console.log('wof!')
  }
}

dog.bark()

The method can access the object properties, but only when it’s a regular function, not an arrow function:

const dog = {
  name: 'Roger',
  bark: function() {
    console.log(`I am ${this.name}. wof!`)
  }
}

dog.bark()

#function

The Difference Between Regular Functions and Arrow Functions in JavaScript

Other then the syntactical differences. The main difference is the way the this keyword behaves? In an arrow function, the this keyword remains the same throughout the life-cycle of the function and is always bound to the value of this in the closest non-arrow parent function. Arrow functions can never be constructor functions so they can never be invoked with the new keyword. And they can never have duplicate named parameters like a regular function not using strict mode.

Here are a few code examples to show you some of the differences
this.name = "Bob";

const person = {
name: “Jon”,

<span style="color: #008000">// Regular function</span>
func1: <span style="color: #0000ff">function</span> () {
    console.log(<span style="color: #0000ff">this</span>);
},

<span style="color: #008000">// Arrow function</span>
func2: () =&gt; {
    console.log(<span style="color: #0000ff">this</span>);
}

}

person.func1(); // Call the Regular function
// Output: {name:“Jon”, func1:[Function: func1], func2:[Function: func2]}

person.func2(); // Call the Arrow function
// Output: {name:“Bob”}

The new keyword with an arrow function
const person = (name) => console.log("Your name is " + name);
const bob = new person("Bob");
// Uncaught TypeError: person is not a constructor

How to Bind Methods or Constructors to Functional Interfaces

To bind methods or constructors to functional interfaces, we are going to use the FunctionalInterfaceFactory of Burningwave Core library. FunctionalInterfaceFactory component uses to cache all generated functional interfaces for faster access. Before we start coding, we must add the following dependency to our _pom.xm_l:

XML

<dependency>2
    <groupId>org.burningwave</groupId>3
    <artifactId>core</artifactId>4
    <version>8.12.6</version>5
</dependency>

Activation Functions, Optimization Techniques, and Loss Functions

Activation Functions:

A significant piece of a neural system Activation function is numerical conditions that decide the yield of a neural system. The capacity is joined to every neuron in the system and decides if it ought to be initiated (“fired”) or not, founded on whether every neuron’s info is applicable for the model’s expectation. Initiation works likewise help standardize the yield of every neuron to a range somewhere in the range of 1 and 0 or between — 1 and 1.

Progressively, neural systems use linear and non-linear activation functions, which can enable the system to learn complex information, figure and adapt practically any capacity speaking to an inquiry, and give precise forecasts.

Linear Activation Functions:

**Step-Up: **Activation functions are dynamic units of neural systems. They figure the net yield of a neural node. In this, Heaviside step work is one of the most widely recognized initiation work in neural systems. The capacity produces paired yield. That is the motivation behind why it is additionally called paired advanced capacity.

The capacity produces 1 (or valid) when info passes edge limit though it produces 0 (or bogus) when information doesn’t pass edge. That is the reason, they are extremely valuable for paired order studies. Every rationale capacity can be actualized by neural systems. In this way, step work is usually utilized in crude neural systems without concealed layer or generally referred to name as single-layer perceptions.

Comprehensive Guide To Python Dunder Methods

Python has a set of magic methods that can be used to enrich data classes; they are special in the way they are invoked. These methods are also called “dunder methods” because they start and end with double underscores. Dunder methods allow developers to emulate built-in methods, and it’s also how operator overloading is implemented in Python. For example, when we add two integers together, 4 + 2, and when we add two strings together, “machine” + “learning”, the behaviour is different. The strings get concatenated while the integers are actually added together.

The “Essential” Dunder Methods

If you have ever created a class of your own, you already know one of the dunder methods, __init__(). Although it’s often referred to as the constructor, it’s not the real constructor; the __new__() method is the constructor. The superclass’s  __new__() , super().__new__(cls[, ...]), method is invoked, which creates an instance of the class, which is then passed to the __init__() along with other arguments. Why go through the ordeal of creating the __new__() method? You don’t need to; the __new__() method was created mainly to facilitate the creation of subclasses of immutable types (such as int, str, list) and metaclasses.

Function Expression vs Function Declaration in JavaScript

Function Expression vs Function Declaration in JavaScript.

It was until during one of the JavaScript mock interviews did I came across the term function expression.

The question was: What is the difference between these two syntax?

function x(){

}

let x = function(){

}

I was clueless for a moment. After thinking a little, I could only come up with: the second syntax invokes an _anonymous _function and is assigned to a variable.

I was alien to the term hoisting.

In this article, we will acquaint ourselves with three simple terms: function declaration,_ function expression, _and hoisting.

What is function declaration?

Function declaration is also known as _function statement. _It contains the name of the function, parameters, and a return statement. **Naming the function **is what sets function declaration apart. Parameters and return statement is optional.

Function Declaration

What is function expression?

Function expression also has a name, parameters, and return statement. All of which are optional. The important thing to bear in mind is: the function here is _assigned _to a JavaScript variable.
