# Resources

Here are a list of tools, books, and other various resources that I’ve found helpful in life and in school.

**Todoist** - This is my to-do list app of choice. I like the integration with Gmail that lets me quickly convert an email into a task and get me to #InboxZero
**1Password** - Reusing passwords is bad. Generating and remembering several passwords is difficult. I was skeptical of password managers but caved in after a month of trying. This is the only tool that I pay to use, but my digital security is worth the $36 per year.
**Toggl** - A time tracking tool that I tend to use when my schedule gets overwhelming.
**Zotero** - A reference manager whose full potential I still haven’t figured out. Right now, I store interesting papers there (never to be read again).
**SelfControl** - Another *productivity* tool that I use when I’m becoming a slacker-man.
**Note-taking** - Notion, Drafts, Bear, Notability, default notes app, and regular paper. It really doesn’t matter what you use.

## Courses

**Machine Learning** taught by Andrew Ng. This was the course that kickstarted everything back in my first year of undergrad.

## Books

*Disclaimer:* I am neither an expert nor do I claim expertise in these subjects. These are books I’ve found useful either in classes or outside.

### Core

I’m assuming you are familiar with calculus, linear algebra, and probability.

- Some textbook on Real Analysis - I have
**Advanced Calculus** by Fitzpartick
**Introduction to Algorithms** by CLRS - For computer scientists
**Statistical Inference** by Casella & Berger - For statisticians
**Networks** by Mark Newman - For network scientists

### Other useful textbooks

**Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos** by Steve Strogatz

### For the uninitiated

**The Signal and the Noise** by Nate Silver - If you’ve taken a college-level course on probability, this book will be largely unsurprising.
**Weapons of Math Destruction** by Cathy O’Neil

### Life

**The Enchiridion** by Epictetus
**Meditations** by Marcus Aurelius
