This repository contains lecture transcripts and homework assignments as Jupyter Notebooks for the first of three Kadenze Academy courses on Creative Applications of Deep Learning w/ Tensorflow. It also contains a python package containing all the code developed during all three courses. The first course makes heavy usage of Jupyter Notebook. This will be necessary for submitting the homeworks and interacting with the guided session notebooks I will provide for each assignment. Follow along this guide and we'll see how to obtain all of the necessary libraries that we'll be using. By the end of this, you'll have installed Jupyter Notebook, NumPy, SciPy, and Matplotlib. While many of these libraries aren't necessary for performing the Deep Learning which we'll get to in later lectures, they are incredibly useful for manipulating data on your computer, preparing data for learning, and exploring results.
