Weekly Update: February 19-25, 2017
This week’s Machine Learning course subject was Support Vector Machines (SVM). SVMs are a supervised learning technique that can be used to solve classification problems. The homework was a lot of fun but it’s getting harder and harder to find the time to work through it.
I finally finished the React and Redux course. It was a nice quick look at how to deliver a web application that uses both React and Redux. Redux seems like the best way to implement React apps moving forward. I need to do a deep review of how the app in the React/Redux course differs from the app developed in the React/Flux course. The next practical step would be to ship some code using React.
PluralSight Course(s): Building Applications with React and Redux in ES6
MOOC Course: Machine Learning
PluralSight Course(s): LINQ Fundamentals with C# 6.0, Implementing and Securing an API with ASP.NET Core
Book(s): Elements of Programming, Seneca Six Pack
On the Next…
I’m going to try to read more this week. I’m really enjoying going through Seneca’s stoic tomes. His moral letters to Lucilius are absolute gold. I hope to finish the Seneca work and dig back into the Elements of Programming.
I will likely finish one of the Pluralsight courses, I’m guessing it’ll be the LINQ one. It’s great so far and is serving as a nice refresher over a subject I’ve used daily for many years without formally learning.
