I've recently become interested in machine learning and want to know some good resources for a beginner!

My background is in CS. I took a very general AI course in college as well as numerical analysis. Though I'm a bit rusty in math at the moment, I wouldn't be afraid to brush up with the proper motivation. I have a fair amount of programming experience and I'm reasonably fluent in most common languages so I wouldn't be opposed to picking up a new one for the right platform. I'm aware of scikit-learn but I am otherwise not very familiar with scipy-related tools. What would you recommend as the ideal way for a beginner to start diving into the field?
I'm also curious how one would go from a more general programming background (web development, etc.) to working in machine learning. Is this a field of computing that is possible to enter via experience, or do entry level positions require a specialized degree?
Thanks for your help!
