Learn new IT skills for less with Jumping Bean's Black Friday deals
With retrenchments looming in the IT sector as the fourth industrial revolution begins to ripple across the South African economy, it's time to re-skill and level-up to ensure one's skills remain relevant. As anyone in the IT sector knows, continuous education and training is part of the job, and it's now more urgent than ever to stay up-to-date.
In the past, careers could be built on the products of a single vendor, such as Microsoft or Oracle, but today, the changes wrought by open source, interconnectivity and globalisation require a far broader set of skills and mental agility and passion to learn and master new technologies.
Cloud computing, DevOps, AI, IOT, in fact, nearly all the exciting changes in technology are driven by Linux and open source technologies. Linux is an essential skill if one wants to participate in Industry 4.0. In the past, an MCSE or a CCNE was a good starting point for a career, and many people, now well into their careers, have failed to move beyond these silos and are are at risk unless they take action and re-skill.
Luckily the seismic changes being wrought in the economy are also creating new opportunities. Skills in DevOps, cyber security, data science and software development are in short supply. The smart money is already taking advantage of these emerging opportunities. Shouldn't you?
Jumping Bean's courses not only impart the required knowledge and skill professionals require, but also achieve something far more important; they instil in people the right mental attitude to prosper in the fourth industrial revolution. Self-reliance, self-learning and a passion for technology that makes learning a pleasure, almost an addiction! Endorphin rushes aren't only achieved from seeing a new social media update!
