I’ve wrapped up the Regressions Model course taught by Brian Caffo of Johns Hopkins University. This is my second course taught by Prof. Caffo and I am quite optimistic about this class. He released some new recordings of the lectures which were a lot better production than the earlier ones. I learned a lot from this course and completed the course with distinction
I also have been working through the Programming for Everybody (Python) course which has been a good class. As I have previously written on, I believe programming languages are tools and you should pick the tool that is right for the job. I felt that with all this time focused on R my Python skills could use a little work so I took the course.
One of the key things I took away from the class is the computer science jargon. I knew the concept but expressed it in non-technical terms. Now I can use the terminology my friends in the CS field understand.
