-- TALK --
TensorFlow 2.0 is all about ease of use. In this 45 minute talk, I'll cover best practices for beginners and experts, and point you to the latest code examples you can try for each. I'll cover the Keras Sequential, Functional, and Subclassing APIs, as well as built-in training loops, and how to write a custom training loop using a GradientTape. To wrap it up, I'll give a quick summary of a few announcements and updates from the TensorFlow Developer Summit.
