    Hi All

    Just wondered what everyone is studying for right now? I'm studying VMware technology for fun at the moment with no cert in mind just yet. We've just launched a Kubernetes Academy that's proving very interesting to me.

    Thanks
    James

    Plenty of books on the go – mainly Office 365, Sharepoint and CEH.

    May look at taking MS-100 if I can get a few days to get some momentum to take the exam. :)

    After a 7year break I suddenly need to know Cisco again, but I don't want to just do the same old CCNA as 10 years ago, so I am going to recertify but to all the labs and so on in Python and Ansible.

    It's funny you should ask...

    I've just finished and passed: Ethics and Law in Data and Analytics offered by EDx and Microsoft
    I've just finished 2 out of 3 courses for the XSeries program of: Star Trek: Inspiring Culture and Technology offered by EDx and the Smithsonian (3rd course starts next month).

    And in Feb 2020, I'll be studying the H880 Technology-enhanced learning: foundations and futures offered by the OU.

    That sounds like a cracking mix of studies Ken. Love the Star Trek related course and have max respect for anyone working on a masters. I bet that’s pretty tough

    None, dont even know what the certificate industry looks like these days tbh. I have been wanting to learn SQL but not for the sake of getting a certificate... not to bothered about certs much anymore I took a few initially to get my foot in the door but now Im in I seem to get by on knowledge from things I’ve read/watched online or experience from working with the tech, probs could do with adding 1 or 2 certs on my CV though I suppose, looking towards Office 365 and the cloud side of things as thats where it seems to be heading, got a few years xp with 365 but know very little about AWS.
