2. Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Last year I wanted to find an awesome assignment and jump in, I found two! Wish I could have stayed on Q longer, but this machine learning stuff is cool too. I wanted to finish learning Spring, um… I got distracted with machine learning and I wanted to clean this house at some point which never happened. This year I need to find a new home for all of my office “friends,” probably in my basement. I really want to do that free class on deep learning, but we’ll see if I get to that.
