The Story of Change & Opportunity in Tech Training

Change

Emerging technologies are increasingly relevant in the enterprise world. Thanks to the growth of the internet and open source technology, a market once controlled solely by the big vendors has been opened and democratised.

Rather than buying and using one vendor technology stack, developers and businesses are now choosing and combining the best tools for the job. As a result, the way technology is purchased and adopted is changing, with new tools (and consequently new skills) in increasing demand.

Open Source is the norm’, says Sam Lambert, GitHub’s Senior Director of Infrastructure Engineering. ‘A lot of large enterprises view being open source as an essential way of propagating the use of their technologies, and they're open sourcing stuff quickly.’

With the rapid pace of change, it can be difficult to keep up with what’s happening in the software world. As open source becomes mainstream, things get even more complicated - but also much more exciting.

Opportunity

For businesses and developers today, software engineering isn’t just about putting software to work and shipping code, it’s also about problem solving at an even more fundamental level. Understanding what tools to use for different types of problems, and what stacks to develop and deploy with, creates huge opportunities for businesses in the age of digital transformation.

As businesses search for new technologies and skill sets to gain advantage, training must adapt to support them. As technology stacks are increasingly driven by choice, efficiency and practical application, training must follow suit.

So the opportunity lies in:

  • Understanding the technologies themselves, and crucially why they are relevant for enterprise teams and their objectives
  • Understanding the way developers work and learn, and providing hands on material allowing them to skill up as efficiently as possible

Logical Operations has recently partner with Packt to provide emerging technology training materials. Packt was founded to help make sense of these emerging technologies, and to provide practical resources to help developers put software to work in new ways. This practical, expert-written material gives you everything you need to deliver high impact technical training on the emerging technologies driving digital transformation.
