Big Data is gathered from nearly everyone and affects almost every aspect of modern life, from health care to hotels and from consumer trends to traffic gridlock. Vast amounts of information is now easily accessible and shared freely among companies, but the average person has little conception of their own contributions to Big Data, or how it affects them in their daily life.

Join our Oracle certification and industry expert, John Brooks, for a free 45-minute webinar on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, at 11:00 am CST.  We will cover the definition, uses, and importance of Big Data in our economy, and explain its increasing significance to our society as a whole. We’ll also mention the main applications that are used in Big Data crunching and point the novice certification-seeker toward the best options in this growing career field.

Your private, personal information should be just that. Unfortunately, in today’s cyber world, your personal data has become an asset to be bought, sold, or stolen. Despite using complex passwords or securing your accounts, your data is always at risk from unscrupulous individuals or organizations. A new industry of cyber-middlemen don’t even want to hack your data themselves – they’ll just steal it and sell it to the people who do.

Industry expert George Monsalvatge will explain how your personal data is a monetary asset for both legal and illegal businesses. He’ll go over strategies to help protect your personal information from hackers, as well as explain the common and not-so-obvious tricks that scammers use to gain access to your information. He’ll discuss the ways that your “digital data profile” is inferred from your public and not-so-public online behaviors. Finally, he’ll mention the careers available today in the field of cyber security and how you can prepare for them.

Learn more about protecting yourself from data thieves by attending this FREE webinar, “Protecting Your Personal Information.” The webinar will be presented Wednesday, July 26th, from 12-1, EDT.

Rebirth of the Webinar

As a technology professional, it is not uncommon to find yourself attending product training and demonstrations. Luckily, many of these events no longer require expensive face-to-face time. Unfortunately, the term webinar leaves a bad taste in many people’s mouths. That’s because often these events boil down to a poorly organized sales meeting led by a person that likes the sound of their own voice. Don’t judge….you know what I’m talking about.

So, when I attended the Oracle Virtual Developer Days for WebLogic Server 12c and Java 7, I was not expecting anything beyond the standard webinar. I could not have been more wrong! Their functional presentation and depth of information blew me away.  Besides the requisite keynote session, there were breakout tracks that included a focused Q/A and hands-on labs and even a networking lounge to chat with other attendees. Overall, the experience was engaging, easy-to-navigate and best of all, educational.

Virtual Campus

Virtual Sessions

I had only minor hiccups with the video streaming, and those were quickly addressed using the chat, where moderators helped to resolve this (among many, I’m sure) issue. All of the presentations were pre-recorded, so I could pause and rewind as needed. The hands-on-labs required me to download and install software prior, but this was a lot less buggy than working in virtual cloud.

Having used this dynamic Oracle Developer Day platform, I am now spoiled. We can only hope other vendors take a page from Oracle and up their virtual education game to this level. I’ll keep you posted on any other webinar gems, and if you’ve attended one that you loved be sure to share the new here.
