Keeping up with Technology: Drinking from the Firehose & 2019 Strategy

Andrew Nakamura, SQLDBA Keck Medical Center - USC

Now is the time of year to get strategic about your skill building before it hits you like a firehose! Keeping up with technology can feel like a treadmill; you keep running but never get anywhere. As we kick off 2019, it is a great time of year to be planning your skill-building focus. This session will guide you in ways to keep up with technology strategically and make the most for a great New Year’s resolution. We will balance cost versus benefit for the different types of learning resources such as Pluralsight and Lynda.com. We will also talk about learning goals.
