Today I signed up for an online course that will teach me to build a search engine in seven short weeks. I’m excited about all that I have to learn, and how I’ll be able to apply it in my job and elsewhere. I admit that what piqued my interest most was the appearance of a very tired Google Go-Founder Sergey Brin (must be all that yoga on campus), rocking a lululemon shirt. I am not exactly sure how building a search engine will impact the work I do, but took this as a sign that I’m headed in the right direction.
Full video here. The intention of the course is to take a beginner with no experience to a level of some sophistication with focus on paying attention to how you get there.
Not unlike my yoga class this morning.
