We have less of a commute, more quality time with people in our households, and time to do little tasks we've been putting off. On the flip side, it can feel isolating, basic necessities are much more of a concern, and every day often feels the same. Today we talk about taking advantage of extra time by upskilling in economies that may suffer as a result of the pandemic.

Passively interesting

Top notch

Ginette and Curtis are some of my favs. On the court the content is interesting and informative, to the point that I sometimes take bullet point notes to use in explaining machine learning to clients. Off the court they took a personal call with me to help me brainstorm and evaluate whether joining a data science consulting company was the right fit for me. 8 months later I’m really enjoying the career move.
