#EDUtechAsia  Live Webinar Series


The future of ICT jobs - everything you need to know

JuL 1, 2021 17:00 SGT (GMT +8)

Hosted by Terrapinn in collaboration with Linux Professional Institute

This is Part 1 of 3 of the LPI webinar series 
Educators must ensure that their students will be equipped with the skills that they need to be part of the digital age’s agile, future-ready workforce. Those looking to get into the ICT field are at a key point in the industry, and the opportunities are rife. To effectively provide this knowledge to their students, educators also need to continuously upskill.
The ICT market has evolved in a way that everything is defined by components in the cloud, mobile computing and Internet of Things devices. Almost all this software runs on top of one of the multiple flavours of the Linux operating system. In just half a century, ICT professionals have evolved great, and now they must return to their roots as people who need to know everything - and this ‘everything’ just keeps growing. ICT professionals – also called DevOps engineers or Full Stack Developers - need to be forever learners. In this talk, Cesar Brod will illustrate how ICT careers have evolved and what you and your students should do to be attractive to the market. 

After this talk, the audience will get a better understanding on:

  • The evolution of the ICT market and job opportunities 
  • The need to be a specialized generalist in a DevOps career 
  • The importance of continuous learning

From 1997 on he started working exclusively with free and open source software, adding what would later be called “agile methodologies” to the sauce and leading teams who created more free software and built business models around it. He is also an author and contributor of books on Programming, Agile Methodologies, User Experience and Technology and Education and has translated several important books into Portuguese, such as the seminal software engineering opus “The Mythical Man-Month” by Fred Brooks Jr.
