What you should learn...

  • If you want programming utility and maximum bang, learn Javascript. It can be used in building pretty much anything from web applications to mobile apps to Internet of Things device control software. It is the most versatile language today.
  • Machine learning is nice, but SQL is better. Learn to do SQL properly and you can be a great data nerd.
  • Marketing is more important than product. It doesn't matter how you feel about this fact: soak up as much info about landing page design, growth hacking, and early stage validation

How can you learn?
