So starting around October last year Stanford started the first few of its free online geared classes. I successful took and completed and passed the Artificial Intelligence class and the Machine Learning class. That, coupled with full time work, pretty much left me with no time for anything else. I was crazy busy for that 10 weeks but I learned a bunch and it was fun. Over the winter break, even though I’ve been busy, I’ve more or less recovered, and just in time, because in a few weeks a whole new batch of free online classes will be kicking off. I’m going to see if it’ll be feasible for me to do 3 this time, but I might have to settle for 2. So If I vanish against for another 10 weeks, that’ll be why.
This stuff is amazing and a lot of it simply isn’t available at the university I went to, so to have it now for free is a pretty big opportunity so I’m eager to cram in as much as I can before it goes for pay (it has the feel of a beta/demo that will go that way once material is built up and kinks worked out).
So cheers! and see you again in the spring!
