I've been discussing this subject with other tech writers.

In my small team, we've variously taken recent courses in Python, Java,
JavaScript, SQL, Web development, Node.JS, and Hadoop. Although it's
certainly possible to learn these on your own, we found taking actual
classroom courses helpful.

I recently started the Machine Learning Specialization from Coursera, which
is of course challenging.

Is anyone working on an additional degree or certification on the side?
Following a prescribed self-study regimen? What are you doing to keep
learning new technologies?
