One of the questions I get asked most frequently is how I so quickly changed from a “plain old software engineer” to “certified Data Scientist” as quickly as I did. While I do plan to write a book/shoot a video on the topic. In the meantime, enjoy this video from Siraj Raval where he shows the techniques he uses to study machine learning. It’s a fast moving field with lots of crazy math, so the old ways of learning just won’t cut it.

That includes living a healthy lifestyles, optimizing your learning environment, creating a personalized learning path, prioritizing effectively, and being an active learner. He demos the FAST technique, which you can use to help learn faster and more efficiently. While this with made with machine learning technology in mind, but these techniques can be used for any field.

In this episode of Visual Studio Toolbox, Arturo Nunez shows us the seamless integration of Visual Studio and Unity and how this makes you a much more productive game developer. You get the benefits of things like IntelliSense and full debugging support for your scripts, as well as Unity specific features like directly implementing Unity API messages in MonoBehavior scripts and the MonoBehavior wizard for adding method definitions.

(And for a limited time, you can take advantage of the Unity Pro and Visual Studio Professional Bundle, which includes Visual Studio Pro, Unity Pro, $50 in monthly Azure credits and more.)
