Learning Progress 2019

Learning is an eternal path. I wanted to share my own adventure primarily for the following practical reasons: to help me remember what I have supposedly been working on technology-wise and to help me practice a technique that is known as spaced repetition. This is really just a summary to motivate myself to keep on track and be reminded as often as possible to stay a bit more humble, as it becomes obvious that I don’t know much in the end. In the process, I hope you may find some inspiration too.
