SKILLS OF INFINITE POSSIBILITIES
Information Technology (IT) is one of the few careers where specialists are able to secure impressive salaries with very little formal education – thus making it an ideal mobility vehicle for situations where education is cost prohibitive.
TechnoFro Adult courses focus on establishing solid foundations on which participants can build a boundless career. The participants are given a comprehensive introduction to various, core IT disciplines and the multitude of resources available to IT professionals at any level in their career.
The first, and therefore most important, platform to understand in the Information Technology field is the operation of a basic computer system.
In this training we introduce students to the most basic computing component, the bit. We explain how this simple electrical charge traverses and interacts with the many parts inside a computer and ultimately becomes the apps and games loved by millions.
Continuing with the bits journey from the preceding course, this session explores how data interacts with systems outside of the one from which it was created.
This session explores the various systems used in corporate environment and the Internet abroad to service requests made by a user’s local computer.
This final session teaches how to actually arrange the bits introduced in the preceding sessions into instructions to carry out various tasks.
In this training, the similarities – how each language is ultimately interpreted on a computer system – and differences – which languages are best suited for a particular task – are explored across various programming languages.
The modular design of modern computer systems make their physical construction and repair almost as simple as a child playing with building blocks – the key is understanding the compatibility and capabilities of the different parts in use.
This course focuses on the different computing physical components and their operation; we explore how they interact with one another in-order to understand the actions to take when upgrading for improved performance or troubleshooting to solve a problem.
The operating system is the translator by which humans communicate the action to be performed to the computer hardware handling the request.
This course covers the installation, operation, and limitations of current operating systems; we cover the strengths, weaknesses, and nuances of various operating environments.
Through networking the power of a single computer is amplified exponentially.
This course discusses how computers exchange information with one another both internally within a mutual location and remotely across large distances. We explore the various tools used to test network connectivity across different operating systems.
Traditionally, businesses host their vital services – such as email, databases, and directory services – on powerful computer systems in on-site, environmentally-controlled spaces.
In this course, we explore the services that power both local and global systems.
Virtualization & Cloud Computing
Perhaps the largest change to conventional computing in the past 20 years is the advent of the cloud. Cloud services offer an alternative to organizations that traditionally would house all of their server equipment at a physical location under their control.
This course starts by answering the question that eludes some of the most seasoned system engineers: “What is the Cloud?”. We explore the top vendors of cloud services, the differences between types of services offered, and the interfaces by which they’re administrated.
Regardless of its power or complexity, computers only have an IQ of 2 – they understand zero and ones; coding is just arranging those two digits into patterns that the hardware can interpret.
In this lesson students are introduced to programming constructs and objects. By running similar code against multiple languages
