Not too sure anymore. Do people still use Excel? I'm seeing a lot of SQL, which I read is a database according to the places I was looking at for jobs. SQL, Python, and R seem to be the skills I saw when it came to data analysis from the places I was looking at that were hiring.

Excel is still used by many people and I use it in work every day.

I don’t even know what the fuck SQL, Python and R are.

No, for sure. I still use Excel too even in my data analysis. This publication will have some barcharts that I made with Excel because R is a clusterfuck to get certain things done.

I'm just wondering if in this area it's not moving towards SQL. By the way, how the fuck do you not know what Python is? You've been posting about these classes for a while now :lol:. Not practicing what you preach?

I thought Python was just a snake until you just mentioned it as being otherwise.

I've got a huge library of free courses, spread over many fields and across several platforms (Udemy, Lynda, Coursera, etc.) but I'll start one the day @Ronsonfly does.......which means, don't hold your fucking breath! :lol:

Still amazes me that one of the professors I talked to said his student ran through Udemy courses from python to linear algebra and all the maths, and he's now doing a post-doc up in Silicon Valley under one of the greatest professors ever in this certain area.

From what I've been studying, these math courses and computer courses are meant to be done online. I've learned more doing these YouTube videos than I have ever learned walking into class.

I belonged to this chess group on Facebook and they sent tons of pdf files of chess books as well as video programs.


Including a Master Class program featuring Gary Kasparov...

They were charging a shit load for just that program so it was a awesome scord.

If anyone is interested in it private message me on here.

I can well believe it. You can consume huge amounts of information while in bed, sitting on the shitter, on the bus, and it’s often being presented by lecturers who are far better than most you’ll come across in university. You can start and stop the lesson at a whim and redo it, if necessary, and that certainly helps retention.

It’s the same with all media today......you can learn more about WWI by listening to 20 hours of Dan Carlin’s podcast than spending a couple of semesters in school or university. I did geology for 5 years and I can confidently say that anyone with more than three brain cells could learn more about this rock we live on after watching the series Earth Story over the course of a week. There’s a ton of good series out there covering geography, science, history, etc., on top of these Udemy, Lynda, Coursera and shit that I can get elsewhere. I mean, people pay to go to college to become competent at, say, Adobe Photoshop or even MS Office when these courses are far better presented, contain consistent and often better information, hold plenty of files to tinker with (exercise files) and are far more flexible.....and they’re fucking free.

I was only thinking about it on the plane to work today; could you give a child a better education by homeschooling him and feeding him these type of courses/series/podcasts. Obviously, you’d need to have some good discussion too but, with some solid discipline, I’d say they’d probably do better.

To that point, we are lucky to live in a time where it's easy to become educated/informed so long as you have the desire. I can remember the days when I did not use the internet; there was no wikipedia and I actually had to go to the library and check out thesaurus to get information. Math and Science especially required a lot of grinding through. Now it's a pleasant surprise to go on youtube and there are actual college level, full semester long courses for the advanced mathematics.

A lot of this IT/Programming stuff on here is great. I kinda wish I went down that point but I do dabble with Python

Absolutely. You can become an expert in almost anything and never leave your study or bedroom.......if you have the motivation...which is the bit I’m struggling with!.
