for professional software developers and engineers.
Deep Learning for Developers


Contact me to be updated about future workshops or discuss a workshop at your company.


Assistant Professor at Tel Aviv University; a decade of experience teaching scientific Python in Academia and Industry.


Software developers and engineers interested in a pratctial introduction to deep learning.


An introduction to data processing, analysis, and visualization with Python combined with a primer in deep learning with neural networks.


16-24 hours of interactive sessions.

Hands-on approach

Instruction with code. Built-in exercises and problems. Laptops open with source code throughout all sesssions. Homework assignments for deep recitation.

Python, Keras & Jupyter

Coding in Python, inside interactive Jupyter notebooks, using Keras, a popular deep learning library.

About me

Yoav Ram, PhD

I'm an assistant professor at Tel Aviv University. I was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University and earned my PhD in Mathematical & Computational Biology from Tel Aviv University. I've been teaching Python in Academia and Industry since 2011, including at Tel Aviv University, IDC Herzliya, Applied Materials, Intuit, and KLA.

I enjoy solving and communicating complex problems and ideas. I develop and deliver Python programming workshops focused on numerical, scientific, and statistical applications in Israel, California, and anywhere else I'm needed - and now also on Zoom.
