Machine learning in one weekend?

I was excited to see the title of this quora answer: What would be your advice to a software engineer who wants to learn machine learning?   However, I was a bit intimidated by the length of the answer.

What I would love to see is Machine Learning in One Weekend.    I cannot write that book; I want to rread it!    If you are a machine learning person, please write it!   If not, send this post to your machine learning friends.

For machine learning people: my Ray Tracing in One Weekend has done well and people seem to have liked it.    It basically finds the sweet spot between a "toy" ray tracer and a "real" ray tracer, and after a weekend people "get" what a ray tracer is, and whether they like it enough to continue in the area.   Just keep the real stuff that is easy, and skip the worst parts, and use a real language that is used in the discipline.   Make the results satisfying in a way that is similar to really working in the field.   Please feel free to contact me about details of my experience.

Truly, this article is really one of the very best in the history of articles. I am a antique ’Article’ collector and I sometimes read some new articles if I find them interesting. And I found this one pretty fascinating and it should go into my collection. Very good work!
