Is Angular the future of web development? WebAssembly is coming

Is Angular the future of web development? WebAssembly is coming

September 26, 2016 in Corporate IT Training, Web Development / by Sara Lamb

(Written by Doug Hoff/Centriq Training)

Web development has passed through three major architecture patterns. And a fourth is on the way which will add more choices for designers and keep developers busy as they blend the types both by design and confusion.

Google’s Angular framework is an example of the latest style of architecture and with the release of Angular 2.0 has demonstrated that the Single Page Application is getting easier to develop. But it’s not just another framework. It’s on the architectural path that the web is taking in general. The question I want to address is whether or not Angular will be a long-term solution for the web. In doing so, the choices will become clearer how other styles are appropriate or not based on business needs.Read More

September 21, 2016 in IT Career Program / by Ted Parker

Being stuck in a dead-end job can not only be frustrating, but stressful. You feel trapped because you don’t have the time to job search while working, and maybe the prospects outside of your job just aren’t that promising.

GI Bill Questions -The Three Most Important

GI Bill Questions -The Three Most Important

September 15, 2016 in IT Career Program, Veterans/GI Bill / by Ted Parker

Does this sound familiar? You joined the military in your teens. Maybe you served in Iraq or Afghanistan, or maybe you were stateside the entire time. Regardless, after 6-10 years of being a soldier, your family needed you. So you separated from the military. You learned a lot and gained a great deal of experience. But now you’re not sure how, or even if, it translates to a civilian job.

Your first thought is to use your GI Bill benefits and finish your education. You check out online classes and traditional college,  but your family can’t wait for two to four years for you to get a great-paying job.  Or, maybe college just isn’t right for you.

If that’s familiar, you may not know where to go next. Don’t worry though, to find the right path all you have to do is ask yourself the right three questions. These are the same three questions every veteran should ask before making a decision on how to use your GI Bill benefits:Read More

Tips for Preparing to Ask Management to Invest in IT Training

September 13, 2016 in Corporate IT Training / by Sara Lamb

Technology changes quickly, which is why your skills should be ever evolving and updated regularly. In a perfect world, every company would have a limitless budget for training and certifications, but unfortunately that’s not how it works at most companies.

Despite the challenges business owners and leaders face regarding managing staff and budget limitations, training still needs to be a priority. You wouldn’t go to a doctor that hadn’t updated their skills in 20 years would you? The same argument can be said for a company leaving their network or website in the hands of someone who hasn’t updated their skills in the last 10 – 15 years!

With that in mind, here are some tips for making the pitch to your boss or upper management as to why paying for training is a wise investment in you and the company.Read More
