This page contains a list of topics I wish to learn more about, am currently learning or have learned.
Links to summaries I’ve made of the books I’ve read. The entire repo is over here.
- The Lean Startup by Eric Ries
Learning never truly stops, but here are some more specialized topics I’ve learned to the degree of being generally useful. I’m excluding the PyData stack here, since it’s my primary toolset.
- Docker (+ compose and friends)
- Kubernetes (+ Helm)
- HTML + basic CSS, Sass
Topics I am currently actively pursuing.
- Clojure (thanks to the wonderful Clojure for the Brave and True)
- Bootstrap (I keep reaching for front-end micro projects)
Topics I have pursued in the past (and am interested in continuing again), but have currently taken a back seat. Usually as a result of my requiring additional knowledge from my “Actively Learning” list.
- Tensorflow 2.0+
- Spacy (A source of inspiration for code design, and the recent v3.0 release looks incredible)
- D3.js (I still pick it up on occasion, but I forget a lot of stuff)
- Intermediate CSS (animations, other magic + general “insight”)
- Julia (I am an absolutely enormous fan, but PhD work requires me to focus on Python for the time being)
- React (I want to learn front-end and this looked the most appealing)
- “Scrolly” storytelling (currently learning Scrollama, from the great folks at The Pudding)
Topics that I haven’t got around to exploring yet, or that I don’t currently have a solid use-case for. But they’re here to remind me when an appropriate use-case surfaces.
- Scrolly storytelling
- Scrollstory (Been suggested as a good one for beginners, but I don’t know any JQuery, yet)
- Webpack (for deploying front-end code developed using Node.js?)
- Elisp (I <3 Emacs / Spacemacs / Doom Emacs, but still don’t really know how to write much Elisp. Maybe learning Clojure will help.)
- Elixir (just experiment)
In no particular order. And I happen to be a somewhat slow reader. I typically read through books with a highlighter in hand, and make notes. I’ll be trying my best to make these notes available as I finish each book, if I consider what they have to say valuable to me.
- Never Split the Difference by Christopher Voss (currently reading)
- Getting Things Done by David Allen
- The Agile Manifesto
- Thinking, Fast and Slow Daniel Kahneman
- What it takes by Stephen A. Schwarzman
- The Book of Why by Judea Pearl
