Preface 

If you have always wanted to have a website, there is no better time to achieve your dream than now. Due to advancements in web designing, you do not need to spend years learning HTML; “drag and drop” website builders make everything easy for newbies. Sweetening the deal even further, you can create your website without spending a penny. 

However, the difficult part is finding a good provider that will let you make a decent free website. As you may know, “free” usually comes at a cost. In this book, not only will I show you how to create a website, but I will also recommend some of the best free website providers you can sign up with. 

Anyone who has ever started a website knows that making it is easy. But, finding motivation to keep it going is the most difficult part. So, I will also give you tips you can follow to keep on creating content. Furthermore, there are sections in the book dealing with website promotion, SEO, and other topics. 

Since the internet can be dangerous to young people, I recommend that you communicate to your parents or guardians about your intentions to make a free website. It's even better if they take part in the whole process. 

So without further ado, let's get started.

Build real-world computer vision applications and develop cool demos using OpenCV for PythonAbout This BookLearn how to apply complex visual effects to images using geometric transformations and image filtersExtract features from an image and use them to develop advanced applicationsBuild algorithms to help you understand the image content and perform visual searchesWho This Book Is For

This book is intended for Python developers who are new to OpenCV and want to develop computer vision applications with OpenCV-Python. This book is also useful for generic software developers who want to deploy computer vision applications on the cloud. It would be helpful to have some familiarity with basic mathematical concepts such as vectors, matrices, and so on.

What You Will LearnApply geometric transformations to images, perform image filtering, and convert an image into a cartoon-like imageDetect and track various body parts such as the face, nose, eyes, ears, and mouthStitch multiple images of a scene together to create a panoramic imageMake an object disappear from an imageIdentify different shapes, segment an image, and track an object in a live videoRecognize an object in an image and build a visual search engineReconstruct a 3D map from imagesBuild an augmented reality applicationIn Detail

Computer vision is found everywhere in modern technology. OpenCV for Python enables us to run computer vision algorithms in real time. With the advent of powerful machines, we are getting more processing power to work with. Using this technology, we can seamlessly integrate our computer vision applications into the cloud. Web developers can develop complex applications without having to reinvent the wheel.

This book will walk you through all the building blocks needed to build amazing computer vision applications with ease. We start off with applying geometric transformations to images. We then discuss affine and projective transformations and see how we can use them to apply cool geometric effects to photos. We will then cover techniques used for object recognition, 3D reconstruction, stereo imaging, and other computer vision applications.

This book will also provide clear examples written in Python to build OpenCV applications. The book starts off with simple beginner's level tasks such as basic processing and handling images, image mapping, and detecting images. It also covers popular OpenCV libraries with the help of examples.

The book is a practical tutorial that covers various examples at different levels, teaching you about the different functions of OpenCV and their actual implementation.

Style and approach

This is a conversational-style book filled with hands-on examples that are really easy to understand. Each topic is explained very clearly and is followed by a programmatic implementation so that the concept is solidified. Each topic contributes to something bigger in the following chapters, which helps you understand how to piece things together to build something big and complex.

Phaser Game Prototyping Part I demonstrates basic game mechanisms from the Phaser JavaScript Game Framework using "SCRUM-style sprints". It starts by showing you how you to build game mechanisms in both Phaser v2 and then in Phaser version 3! By the end of Part I, you’ll have a complete, fully-functional Game Prototype with the supporting tools to manage further game production. You’ll have a game character’s visual and meta descriptions, learned to control your avatar through the keyboard, mouse, or touch-screen interfaces, developed a game environment, created game scene migrations and then learned how to use collision detection within a standard v2 and the improved version 3 game loops, built dynamic menu response system, to build an interactive game world. 

 

Phaser Game Prototyping Part II demonstrates how to connect all your new game prototypes into various game mechanics. What I show you will open the pathway to building a game in 7-days or a month. You’ll learn to make RPG maze games, code 6 different combat systems, develop heads-up displays (HUD) that are both internal to and outside of the Phaser canvas, apply 6 different artificial intelligence systems, create tiled-maps with the new Phaser v3 features, and other fast-paced actions that cover all the popular game perspective of 2D and 2.5D gaming. I'll reveal what I'm doing with Phaser v3 in 3D games. You’ll discover how to develop games and multi-level isometric scenes using new features in Phaser v3, and existing features in Phaser v2. All these techniques and supporting source code are explained in an easy-to-understand manner for game designers to gain new skills in Phaser v3 and update their skills in version 2.

You’ll find detailed working examples on the book's website with dozens of illustrations and many concepts you can freely apply to your own gaming projects. All the source code annotations enhance the book’s explanation. You can begin your current game conversions into Phaser 3 now.

When traditional web development techniques don't cut it, try React. Use React to create highly interactive web pages faster and with fewer errors. With a little JavaScript experience under your belt, you'll be up and running in no time creating dynamic web applications. Craft isolated components that make your apps easier to develop and maintain, with plenty of guidance on best practices. Set up automated tests, and make pages render fast for your users. See how to use your React skills to integrate with other front-end technologies when needed.

Dive right into React by defining components, the basic building blocks of a React application. Integrate modern JavaScript language features such as classes and arrow functions in your app. Analyze the relationships in your data to isolate state, and sync the data model with what your users see.

Once you're familiar with how a React application works, organize your code base with modules. Configure a production build and deliver your app as efficiently as possible with Webpack. Master testing with React-specific advice and tools to catch the most bugs with the least amount of code. Learn the basics of the Redux library. Define actions and manage an immutable central state with reducers, then connect Redux to your React components to build even larger and more complex interfaces. Package your React code as a standalone widget so anyone can use it in their own applications. Reuse existing JavaScript code in your React components, and build a new React view on top of an existing data model shared with a legacy application.

When you finish this book, you'll be well on your way to solving your front-end problems with React.
