This was a bit of a slow week from a creation standpoint. I still managed to finish up week five of the Machine Learning course. It covered more topics related to learning with neural nets. The homework was to implement a neural net using backpropagation.

I spent a lot of time reading this week. Tools of Titans has been completed. The book is absolutely loaded with great ideas from some of the best thinkers of our time. I will definitely be learning and applying its lessons for the rest of my life.

Beyond continuing the two Pluralsight courses I’m currently working through, I started implementing a workout tracking feature on SimpleHealthTracking. The feature will add the ability to log details and notes about the workouts users are completing.


PluralSight Course(s): none

Book(s): Tools of Titans


MOOC Course: Machine Learning

PluralSight Course(s): Building Applications with React and Redux in ES6, C# Language Internals - Part 2

Book(s): Elements of Programming

On the Next…

I plan to finish both Pluralsight courses I’m taking. I will also finish the workout feature in SimpleHealthTracking. It will be great to be able to log all of my workouts on the site.

I’ve started looking at the book Elements of Programming. From the brief moments I’ve spent with the book, it feels like the kind of text that can take one’s software development skills to the next level.
