How one lifelong learner without a computer science degree studied deep learning with Udacity and landed an engineering job!
There are many ways to launch, advance, or change a career. Earning a four-year degree in a related field has long been considered the “traditional” approach, but it’s certainly not the only option. This is particularly important to understand when considering technical jobs, or jobs in technical fields, because what used to be considered “alternative” paths are fast becoming viable norms.
Kelcey Morton knows this firsthand, because she found her own unique path to a technology career. She doesn’t have a computer science degree; she majored in International Relations as an undergraduate.Yet today, she works at HackerOne in an engineering role.
This is the story of how she did it.
We recently announced some exciting new additions to our Deep Learning Nanodegree Foundation program. These new layers of depth and complexity contribute to a learning experience that we truly believe offers the very best point-of-entry into the world of deep learning and artificial intelligence.
We’re so excited by these additions, that we’ve decided to invite everyone to a free preview of the classroom!
When the Udacity Deep Learning Nanodegree Foundation program launched in January of 2017, it was the first comprehensive program of its kind, offering an unrivaled opportunity to master one of the world’s most transformational technologies. Since then, more than 10,000 students have enrolled. Together, these students represent the future. They are the next generation of deep learning experts who will define how these technologies change our world for the better.
The energy and dynamism in the deep learning space is incredible, and we are challenged every day to continue delivering the best learning experience on the planet. As the field of deep learning grows in both complexity and opportunity, so too must our program deepen and intensify.
This is why we are so excited today to announce incredible new additions to our Deep Learning Nanodegree Foundation program!
