We solve the world's technology problems through collaboration and learning.
A look at six new Cloud Class® courses: CompTIA Network+ (Exam N10-007), Build an E-Commerce Site with Angular 5, Bootstrap 4: Exploring New Features, JavaScript Best Practices, SQL 2014 Developer P1: T-SQL and .NET Code, and Exploring SQL Server 2016: Fundamentals.

Not all IT career paths are created equal. While the Bureau of Labor & Statistics predicts the employment of web developers to grow 15% from 2016 to 2026 and information systems managers are also expected to grow 12% in that time, computer programmer roles are expected to decline. No matter where you fall in those statistics, it’s important to remain marketable with up-to-date skills and best practices.


One of the best ways to do this is to continue your training, whether through online courses, in-person classes, or training seminars. But that’s always easier said than done, with the high day-to-day demands of IT work and subsequent cost associated with continuing education. 


If you're looking to enhance your skill set and prepare for important industry certifications whenever it’s convenient for you (and without the extra cost), we've continued to add new courses to our Cloud Class® library. Here’s a look at what’s new this month:
