I’m taking a Machine Learning course on Coursera. Turns out, it’s a rather old course, more than two years old.
First week, and we had to submit our Octave programming assignments. I basically had two choices: spend hours to come up with the solution myself, or google the solution in less, than 5 minutes.
If you get the job done, get the job done. Never in my career Google failed me before.
Conclusion: The answer for any of your questions is most likely written somewhere on the internet. Don’t waste more time than you need to get the job done.
