Fuck Udemy adverty. "You should learn this online machine learning course, it's taught by an 'expert' instructor, you'll learn algorithms in pythaan and 'arr, make robust models, add value to your business." Fuck off with your buzzword mumbo jumbo and just be straight with people, don't treat them like idiots.

    I know what you mean sometimes it's worth the money but you know nobody is perfect... and still there are many different people and ways how you can learn it...

    @naktop3031 It's the way it appears that they think by throwing together some buzzwords they can impress us. Idk maybe it does, but it comes across as rude

    You should see their game Dev course ad, it's really cringy

    @ausername It's made by a video games expert. Learn game theory in jarva and see, add value to your product. 😉

    You know, they teach you these 'buzz words'/business speak in school (or at university at least). You're supposed to know what it all means. Do you know why people use jargon? It's because us professional people need a common framework to talk to each other - and especially because we're dealing with a scientific STEM field, there can't be misunderstandings.

    Say you have two carpenters and one of them wants to tell the other one on the phone what to build so that the house looks ok. Instead of risking confusion, misinstruction and misunderstanding, he can just say "use the reverse bolt" (I'm just inventing that word to illustrate the ponit) and in those two single words, he just unambiguously gave him the message of how to precisely do his work. The 'reverse bolt' has been engineered and standardized in the carpenting world, to such a point that all carpenters will perfectly understand each other when they use this jargon (or as you call it 'buzz word/mumbo jumbo').

    Furthermore, the field of Computer Science is a very precise one and the littlest mistake can screw things up. This is how a misuse of a datatype in a programming language caused a space probe to be lost forever because of a millionth of a number's precision. That's right.

    I learned these principles in Software Engineering class as well as in Software Quality Assurance class and frankly, so should you have.

    As for the explanation of the terms defined above, it's quite easy:

    * robust: stable, doesn't vomit exceptions, resistant to edge cases etc, well-structured, well-software-engineered

    * add value to your business: computer programs (algorithms) solve a problem and by solving this problem, they make the world function more efficiently. By solving a client's problem, he will invest in you and now you have added value to society and to your business.

    How do you want to function as a Computer Science professional if you don't speak the common language?

    @CaptainRant think you're missing the point. They're using generic terms to bluff their way into sounding clever. Learn "algorithms". That could be fkin anything. "Machine learning" care to maybe be more exact on what forms of machine learning if you know what you're talking about? They're using the most base terms possible because they want to convince idiots. I've got no problem with keywords, but just saying "PYTHON MACHINE LEARNY BLOCK CHAIN ALGORITHM" makes you look stupid because you're not actually SAYING anything, you're just trying to sound clever.
