When I started my software engineering career in early 2000, the way to learn a new technology was to buy a book, which would come with a CD (compact-disk) for a SDK (Software Development Kit) and sample source code. I can clearly remember I would then install the SDK and try the sample code on my laptop or workstation.

Those days are long gone, because I can’t remember buying a technology book in last 10 years. Software technology is changing rapidly, as well as technology learning landscapes. Learning patterns have changed to online resources, like eBooks, online classes and videos. But a lot of the time I still find myself downloading and installing the software I want to learn. This has been an unnecessary time killer on learning in the field, especially if you are trying to learn popular technologies, like Docker, Kubernetes, Tensor Flow (Machine Learning) etc, which requires high configuration workstation.
