Connecting the shapes in organization charts and workflow diagrams

Nicole Winn 0 39

For 23 years, I have trained hundreds of students in Visio and OneNote, which are 2 of my favorite programs to work within. I have found over the years some students mainly have questions about performing faster and or quicker in each program. Let me begin with Visio and a quick tip to assist with connecting the shapes in organization charts and workflow diagrams.

CLD Corner: Being Your Own Hype-Person

Even after nearly a decade and a half of teaching, training, and leading, I still get nervous on new encounters. Crazy right? The fact is this: It happens to the best of us.

Nicole Winn 0 314

The best trick I have ever learned is to Be Your Own Hype-Person.

This revolves around having positive self-talk and finding the strengths in the way you deliver. It seems simple, but when fear comes our way, we begin to protect ourselves and find any negative out there. Positive self-talk allows you to be assertive with the person who needs it the most in those tough situations: You.

What’s New in vSphere 7

What’s New in vSphere 7

While there are many new and updated features of vSphere 7, perhaps the most impactful for customers long-term will be the changes to the product updating capabilities, specifically vCenter Server Update Planner as well as Lifecycle Manager.

Nicole Winn 0 224

In April 2020, VMware announced the general availability of VMware vSphere 7, the latest version of their flagship virtualization product.  VMware customers had been anxiously awaiting the release of vSphere 7, the subsequent rollout and adoption by the customer has certainly been fantastic.

Visual Studio Code (VS Code), by Microsoft, is a FREE small lightweight code editor that can be installed on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.  VS Code is not an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) like Visual Studio but it has many IDE-like features.

Microsoft Azure Employment Outlook

Organizations are focused on hiring workers who can help build out their online operations—on platforms like Microsoft Azure—and keep their organization running smoothly.

Nicole Winn 0 243

 

A recent IT spending survey conducted by Goldman Sachs showed that, while Amazon is still the largest of the cloud service providers, Microsoft Azure is the most popular provider and is quickly gaining market share. Organizations prefer Azure because of its flexibility, security features, and ability to scale, and employers across the country are currently looking for skilled Azure workers to help build out their online operations.

With anything related to IT someone needs to understand numbering systems and converting from one numbering system to another as a basic skill to other skills. This piece is related to that requirement which is a basic skill in the following CompTIA courses: A+, Network+, Server+, Security+, CASP, Cloud+, and CySA+ as well as Cisco and Microsoft certifications.

Social Engineering and Cybercrime – ACE In The Hole

The data is indisputable.  Of all the cyber-attacks reported over the past decade, those that started with social engineering dwarf all the other types of attacks by unheard-of percentages.

Let’s look at it from the cybercriminals point of view;  you can either attempt to write the most awesome, complex, greatest password-cracker program in the history of password-cracker programs, or you could develop a confidence game directed at an employee who might be having a bad day, or at a group of employees who have not had proper cyber-security awareness training in order to steal credentials.
