Let's have a look at what happened with one of our developers.
A few years ago, the wave of Machine Learning had just hit the shores of the tech world, we were looking for volunteers within the team who’d ride & conquer it. Unfortunately, most of the team was too busy in their work and things weren’t moving. Around the same time, one of the team members who had recently joined the team took up the challenge.
His skill set was completely different - mobile technology! But he started putting some good efforts in studying Machine Learning along with his routine work, taking out time in his breaks & after work. It was an intense effort and those two months were grueling. But paid rich dividends! He was able to match some of the experts on the Customer side, matching what they were able to deliver in less than half the time! Now that's insane, isn't it?
