Tons of questions that this website will try to address in some way. Notice that, each year or month we may have new graduate in Networking field and those persons need to learn, need to discover, need to lab, need advices and more. This is a learning cycle in the IT field. So new contents are required, adaptive contents must be provided and uptodate contents are needed. Internet precisely, the WEB is very useful because there is a continuous content provisionning, by new blogs, new posts, new connected devices ... new expansion. Some key principles are the followings : Web is not a Bible of knowledge, it is a large distributed pieces of knowledge mostly operating independently. Continous learning helps survive in this fast moving IT field. The way we teach can impact the scalabilty of your skills. Having a student mindset is neccessary for always study and then stay uptodate in the IT field. Technology is taking part of all aspects in our daily life. This last opinion is making IT knowledge sharing as one of the best gift. When you are growing into IT knowledge it becomes more difficult to share the fundamentals and the basics whereas begineers always need those kinds of knowledge. Some topics in IT field can be better understood with certains methods. Sometimes, know the starting point of a technology facilitate the understanding and motivate to innovate ... I made a small pause, i decide to stop a little and think how can i help others scale in their skills and knownledge, so i designed this blog from scracth in order to provide a special flexibility in terms of authoring, reviewing, administrating, online services offering and more. A place where i can share with, coach and assist students both in english, in french and maybe in spanish. A place where i can invite people (women, students) in IT industry to share and more. This approach help me control better the future of this webapp and evaluate its scalability since it is growing fastly. Last, it will help me share on this kind of webapp building which is always the nice part. There is more joy to give than receive. Life is also sharing and helping other grow by assist them to scale their skills is wonderful. Simply we need more IT blogs. Everyone in the field has something to add in order to build the future IT.
