Have you tried fast.ai? I've heard great things about it from family and friends.

I've checked it out but haven't used it - thanks for reminding me about it though. Will leave that tab open to come back to :)

I bought this course "Machine Learning A-Z: Hands on Python & R in Data Science" on Udemy months back, but plan to start it sometime in the next few months: https://www.udemy.com/machinelearning/. Looking at the curriculum, it covers a lot. And, you can get it at a steep discount.

I started as an associate data scientist in March of this year with no data science experience, just programming in python. My boss is awesome; she's been a data scientist for a while and knows a lot about the various resources available and what types of trainings are worthwhile for a newbie. Here's what she's had me do so far for ML:1. (Udemy course) Python for Data Science and Machine Learning Bootcamp https://www.udemy.com/python-for-data-science-and-machine-learning-bootcamp/2. (Read textbook) Python Data Science Handbook https://jakevdp.github.io/PythonDataScienceHandbook/3. (edx course) MIT Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python https://www.edx.org/course/6-00-1x-introduction-to-computer-science-and-programming-using-python-34. (Coursera course) Stanford Machine Learning https://www.coursera.org/learn/machine-learning - which you already mentioned :) I've found all of these to be good, but especially the Udemy course and (obviously) Stanford ML. Another good reference is A Super Harsh Guide to Machine Learning: https://www.reddit.com/r/MachineLearning/comments/5z8110/d_a_super_harsh_guide_to_machine_learning/Hope this helps!

I'm also very new to Machine Learning. I'm using Coursera IBM's Data Science Specialization, dataquest.io. I'm focusing in geology and microscopy, computer vision.
