evaristoc sends brownie points to @darwinrc :sparkles: :thumbsup: :sparkles:
@darwinrc: Anyway: agree with @Lightwaves the online course you really have to take is definitively the Ng's ML course in coursera.
I am really curious about the edX course too... It seems more like a general information course but still sounds good...
Regarding IoT: Here in Europe is gaining momentum and there are several start-ups as well as root movements with a focus on applications to solve social issues. What about Colombia? Projects that you know? A quick view suggests that in Colombia it is still just an academic topic. Am I wrong?
@Lightwaves : it sounds discouraging, yes. And I partially agree with author. My opinion is that some positions will come up where knowing just a fraction will be enough to give you a chance, specially if combined with other skills and knowledge.
And yes: specially Scala is becoming really popular. Java is already popular: all Hadoop and family is build on Java.
