Which area are you in and do you have the skills you need to stay employed or get employed?

Keeping on top of technology can be a challenge to say the least.  One of the best things you can do it so spend 30 minutes a day “browsing” what’s new in technology.  Once you know where you want to be, then spend that time identifying the qualifications that you need to score the jobs you want.  Next identify the areas that you need to learn and pick the learning method that works best for you.  There are more ways to learn these days than you ever thought possible.  From classroom courses in the classroom to classroom courses taught online, to self-paced video courses and eLearning options you have much to choose from.

What Do Google, NASA and YouTube Have In Common?

Friday, 4 November, 2011

What do Google, NASA and YouTube have in common?   They all use Python Programming in their daily operations.   And that’s the short list.

If that doesn’t peak your interest in Python, then how about this.  If you know Python, have an internet connection, a Web Browser and a top IQ, and can ace the Facebook test, then you can get a job interview with Facebook.  Click here to see a sample question.

Pretty cool if you ask me.

If you are interested in becoming a programmer and taking the Facebook challenge you will be happy to know that you have lots of choices in programming languages…C, C++, Java, Python, Perl, Ruby, C# or PHP will do the trick.

Happy Programming from the team at GogoTraining.

If you have any questions on Programming give us a call at 1.877.546.4446 or send us an email.  We are here.  We are happy.  And we are usually pretty darn helpful!

Is Linux Dead or Alive?

Thursday, 3 November, 2011

The answer to this question depends on which article you read and which application you are assessing.  For example, just one year ago Preston Gralla wrote in  Computerworld that even thought Linux may be dead on the desktop that when you look beyond the desktop Linux is shining.

How true and when you look at where the growth is today, it is not the desktop market.  Take a look at Android which is based on the Linux Kernel.  That is a market that is skyrocketing.   Jobs growth alone for those with Android programming skills has jumped 424%.  Then you have tablets and embedded applications that are flooding the market.

The Computerworld article concludes by saying that, “in the long run, smartphones, tables, and countless gadgets, gizmos and appliances will run some variant of Linux.  Windows will remain largely a desktop and server operating system.  And so more people will end up running Linux than running Windows.”

However, if you look at TechNewsWorld’s November 2011 article you might think that Linux is on its way out because it did not take over the desktop world.  All I know is that all the developers I know love Linux and wouldn’t have any other platform if you paid them.  Embedded Apps are everywhere and one of the courses in highest demand on GogoTraining is Hands-On Embedded Linux followed by Linux Device Drivers: Programming at the Kernel Level.

As long as there are people with opinions we are sure to hear both sides for many years to come.

If you have any questions on Linux Training or would like to share your thoughts on the future of Linux, give us a call at 1.877.546.4446 or email us.
