To understand software development, you have to understand how the language of software is used by a computer. While it is very easy to gloss over the following distinctions as all being part of "coding," the reality is the distinctions among a compiled program, a script, and a Java app manifest themselves constantly in any organization building or modifying of applications.
They certainly are! However, the worth of a certificate is determined by how you plan to advance your career with it. If you plan to spend money on a certificate to stay in the same role at the same salary, it might not be worth the expense.
As silly as it sounds, forgetting to send a thank you note after a job interview could be the difference between getting a new job or being disqualified from the running. When it comes to proper post-interview etiquette, it is important to get it right.
Online courses offer flexibility options that on-campus courses just can’t replicate. When the world is crazier than it has ever been, online courses revolve around your schedule and your life.
All the technology we push into our lives also brings with it certain risks. While stories of "hackers" dominate the news, one of the most significant dangers with technology has to do with the physical harm it can cause. Many physical injuries come from just how we sit when we use a computer.
Remote work is more commonplace today than at any time in history. Many companies are reevaluating their work models, especially in light of COVID-19. Technology is a motivating force in offering remote work options. Work once done in the office can now be done anywhere with a computer and an Internet connection. In addition, video chats, communication apps, and other programs (like document sharing) provide platforms for teamwork.
Serious fans of rock and roll will probably know the answer to this trivia question: When they were just starting out, the Irish band now known as U2 went by what one-word name?
The answer, of course, is "Radio X U2 History", a reference to one of the few technical terms that the fledgling rockers knew back then. The name didn’t last long, but the band certainly did—and within a few short years millions of fans were enjoying the sound of “Feedback” under their new name.
While organizations spend a lot of time and resources working to protect their digital assets, the physical security of the workplace is just as critical and just as subject to attack as is a network.
Physical security involves securing the site, building, office space, servers, computers, and other assets from being compromised at the actual location, rather than electronically over networks. It includes site design and layout, intrusion detection, fire protection, surveillance, physical access control, and emergency response.
It's important to remember that physical security consists of protecting against man-made threats, like intrusion or internal sabotage, as well as natural disasters, severe weather, and accidents that can cause floods, fire, and other problems.
Like former New York mayor Ed Koch, who was famous for his catchphrase, “How’m I doing”, we here at MindEdge and Skye Learning are always looking for feedback from the public.
Comments from our learners, both positive and negative, help us work continuously to improve our courses and certificate programs. And so our question to the public is a simple one: What sort of impact are our courses having on the lives and careers of our learners?
The answer, based on the findings of our first Learner Outcomes survey, appears to be overwhelmingly positive.
