Back when we had no Android app, two of us with no prior Android experience spent a month learning Android development fundamentals. We then began building v1 of our app, continuing to learn as we went, which went on to become the #1 rated app in its category.
I needed an API to solve a problem on the back end. It seemed like serverless lambdas would be the ideal solution, but I had no experience with them. So I learned a bit from online courses plus colleagues, wrote an AWS Lambda, and deployed it to production in less than a day.
I wanted to give a competitive edge to an upcoming product, and the right solution was to develop a Convolutional Neural Network using a deep learning framework. I gave it shot, and had my first version working in 3 days. It still needs work, so I’m continuing to train it.
I joined Autolist without any experience in Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Took the first week learning about it and get to the speed to work on internationalization our website.
