[D] Web dev to ML questions
I’m interested in transitioning from web development to machine learning.
My math background is mediocre (basic calc) and my only programming experience is in web dev technologies (3 years). I want to be realistic about my effort level and opportunities. I probably won’t be going back to college, but have 10 months left on a work contract and would like to spend any free time learning the basics.
- What is the feel of competition in the field? With my time-frame and background, is it reasonable to think I can earn an entry-level position?
- I’ve heard the field is broken up into data science and data modeling. Is data modeling more programmatic? Will my experience as a dev be more relevant there?
