Description

Would you write code without a design? Build hardware without a schematic? Configure a server without a plan? Of course not. Yet, how many of us learn technology without any planning, choosing resources at random in the hope that one of them will be worthwhile? This is horribly inefficient, and worse, can leave critical holes in your knowledge and skills. In this course you'll learn how to design a plan for learning any technology effectively and efficiently based on your own needs and goals.
