CSTA Program

 

 

CSTA 2016 is a six hour, instructor-led seminar that has been the industry standard for understanding computer technology for 25 years (see outline below for release 2016 updates). The 2016 release increases coverage of cloud computing, mobile (apps) technologies, Web development. DevOps has been added to Methodogies and the coverage of Big Data includes Hadoop, other analytical tools and analytical appliances. It covers WAFs (Web Application Firewalls) and Web development tools. These are part of the updating that continues our building block approach to technology. We create a complete picture of IT as the five basic areas of skills and knowledge are covered. For example, virtualization is introduced during the discussion of Platforms (the first discussion) and filled out during Applications (the last section).




Throughout the seminar information is presented in plain English and with everyday examples to which attendees can relate. Questions are encouraged – this is your chance to ask technical questions without feeling foolish. Every attendee is there for the same reason - to be able to communicate with techies.

Audience:

Anyone who is new to information technology, wants to put the pieces together, or is returning to technology from another field will benefit from CSTA. This includes technical recruiters, account managers, business analysts and designers, testers, researchers, technical writers, lawyers, etc.

Objectives:

Upon completion of the training, the participant will be able to:

  • Confidently communicate with IT professionals about technology-related products, job requirements, and/or individual technical skill sets;
  • Identify technical skills and products by classifying them in the appropriate area of technology;
  • Understand how software products, such as operating systems, database systems, and communication systems, are used in a business environment;
  • Understand how software products interface and communicate;
  • Classify new technologies and products in the appropriate area of technology;
  • Use the online database, TechRef®, to drill down from technical concepts or systems to individual tools and specific knowledge;
  • Understand the move to conversational processing using social computing;
  • Use the online database, TechRef®, to research new technologies and products.
