Coursers courses debugging ;-)

I really like Coursera, and set of courses about deep learning (from, but I must make note to myself:
"DO NOT attend new (fresh) courses before those will not stabilize"

Today I finished 4th (as for now last, 5th will be available "soon") course in path.
It was quiet interesting, about convolutional neural networks.
But almost in each of assignments some bugs were present.

In last set of assignments those were biggest (things like this that first task is described as second, and second as first, or this that to do second task (described as first) you need to break your code, and in first task (described as second) despite this that during creation of functions you are using TensorFlow, latter example code is trying to pass there numpy objects....

I need simply wait some time, till those courses will not be debugged :-)

Worflow - my biggest disapotiment of iOS

Long befor having anything with iOS I heard about Worflow.
Wonderful app which was able to automate a lot of stuff on iOS.

I was looking for something similar to this what I imagnied on Android, and each of those tools was disapointing...

So finally when I got iPad Pro, I installed Workflow.

It was nice, shiny.... and completly useless...*

It seems that Workflow is build for people who need to automate some trivial stuff, and are complety OK with whole hassle with clicking, opening windows and so on.

This is really powerfull tool.
It is very usefull tool.
But not for me, and users like me.

Problem is not in Workflow but in my needs. I needed something what would help me automate some things where the best solution would be to write app, or in very untypical cases (like copying files from iCloud to Google Drive).
In some of those cases I already have apps created to do a job.
So automation given to me by this powerfull tool is in my cases not needed.

And because of this tool which looked for me so promising, is one of rarest started apps on my iPad...
To be honest I’m running it from time to time to check if maybe somehow I will be able to use it... but as for now answer was always „no” ;-)

* - very important addition here - it was useless for me.

Keyboard + tablet = not great idea ;-)

Now I'm sure of something what I found out years ago, but wasn't sure.

Years ago I had one of first quiet good tablets with Android.
It was EEE Pad Transformer from Asus.

I used it a lot, but when I was buying it I didn't bought keyboard.
Latter I bought it, and in the blink I stopped to use it...
It was too complicated to remove keyboard, so I wasn't removing keyboard and wasn't using tablet.

So when I was buying iPad Pro with keyboard I was little bit afraid.
But it was working.

So I decided that it may be good idea to buy keyboard for my Pixel C.

So being in US I bought some used keyboard for Pixel C.

And again, it caused that I started to treat Pixel C differently....
Maybe not using it less, but less enthusiastically ;-)

So I put Pixel C again to its cover, it works better.
I still may use keyboard sometimes, but ratter not ;-)

So why with iPad Pro keyboard wasn't so problematic?
I think 2 things, first this keyboard is really easy to work with, its part of cover, so I may use it as cover or as keyboard.
Second thing is that from this what I can say I'm using iPad Pro more like some kind of computer, so much more often in landscape than portrait mode. So keyboard makes perfect sense for it :-)
