Introducing Technically Learning Tracks
How to get from 0 to decently technical
Hey everyone, and happy new year. I’m excited to kick off the year with a bang and introduce Technically Learning Tracks, the best way to get from 0 to decently technical in no time at all. In short, learning tracks take all of the 50+ breakdowns we’ve published and organize them into digestible, straightforward stories. If you want to get more technical but you’re unsure where to start, learning tracks are for you. You can check out the first two tracks here.
Learning tracks are hosted on the Technically website. We’re starting with two:
Technically is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
Walks through the basics of software engineering and how it all fits together, from what code is all the way to how CI/CD works.
Walks through the basics of data science and analytics, from capturing source information to how teams transform and visualize product data.
Each learning track tells you (1) what you need to know, (2) what you should know, and (3) what’s nice to know; you can go into whatever level of depth you’d like.
This is just the start though! I’m hoping to publish several more tracks over the next few months that organize the big, scary world of software engineering into more manageable bites. Keep an eye out for tracks specific to parts of the stack (application, infrastructure, etc.) and specific to your role (product manager, designer, operations, etc.).
Ideas for a learning track? Feedback on existing ones? Just let me know by replying to this email or leaving a comment.
Some end notes…
I’m shutting down the Technically job board. After a few months, it just wasn’t getting the traction I had hoped for, and I’d rather spend the time creating useful new content for all of you. I also picked a pretty bad time in retrospect to be helping with hiring…
