Mobile Apps

In today’s world of mobile phones, there are a million plus apps out there. There are apps out there for gaming, work productivity and everything in between. At first for myself making the change was bitter sweet, thinking that this was just a fad. However I am EXTREMELY happy that my Nextel is collecting dust. It has been easy for the smartphone to not only dominate the market, but to raise the bar for tech itself. Personalization has allowed, developers to innovate on a new level as well as carve out a niche for themselves. With demand out pacing new offerings; individual developers and companies find themselves in a peculiar position.

Due to the shortage of talent, the industry is placing a premium on training tomorrow’s young leaders. Oracle has led the charge for quite some time now, with extending java training to collegiate institutions at no cost. There are multiple entities like Oracle doing this, but universities find themselves scrambling as the attempt to incorporate this into old education models. With the internet expanding borders like never before, learners do not have to be confined to a traditional learning setting.

Apps, iPhone, Android

So how does a person choose, what apps they would like to learn first? It is either Google’s Android, which is my personal fave or Apple’s IOS platform. There are others out there, but they simply don’t have the market share to raise the proverbial eyebrow. If you are smart you wouldn’t choose one, but would want skills to launch apps on either system. JQuery mobile, which is a Oracle product will allow you to do just that. Now if you prefer to stay in the tech stone ages J, there are certifications out there that are specific to the two giants mentioned above. With us being in a tech world without limits why commit to just one.

Becoming A Data Scientist

Becoming A Data Scientist

Data Science, Big Data and all overall analytics is what steering our new tech revolution! Startups are empowering users like never before by engaging them with new tools to increase their personal experiences. Targeted info for any savvy user can be worth a goldmine if leveraged correctly. The business community is now beginning to catch own and see the value of the numbers. From marketing businesses using targeted SEO ads, to professional teams using predictive analytics to gauge player potential. According to data giant Gartner www.gartner.com in 2015 there are over 4M jobs outstanding. This sector is revving up the entire technology industry with its growth due to the non-IT created by just one data science job.

If you already possess skills to command tasks like MySQL databases or creating basic data visualizations. My good friend you are ahead of the game :)! However having the desire to learn the needed skills to become a data scientist will work as well. Here are some of the skills needed to get you hired immediately and get you on the road to a dynamic career!

Analytics- In my opinion the heart of this great discipline is what drives everything else from simple application of statistics to computer programming.

Machine Learning- If you are a mathematician this is for you. This area focuses on algorithms, patterns to artificial intelligence. Honda for example has mastered machine learning, check them out. http://asimo.honda.com/

SQLThis is one of the more valuable skillsets, as it will give you the tools to tap into any needed database. Some of the systems that you will be able to manipulate are MySQL, Access, Oracle and more.  Data mining is one of the guiding principles for anchoring all Big Data companies and business on whole.

Memorial Day By The Numbers

Memorial Day By The Numbers

Hey guys! It’s been a while! I missed you :)! Happy Memorial Day to everyone! As we salute today’s veterans, it gets me thinking a lot about numbers. I have been a numbers person for a while now being a finance minor. Working for a top financial firm for a decade, before venturing out on my own. The value of numbers and more importantly what can be done with them are expanding.

 

Data science is the new bees’ knees of the 21st century! It has created buzz, due the level of ease to transition into a new high paying career. There are over 8 different areas of interest in this field and growing. The even greater thing to me is how technology has impacted the use of numbers, with code being math in its purest form. Take a look at this infographic from Data Camp below www.datacamp.com.

Give N Go is gaining traction in the data training business by looking to work with leaders, such as Oracle, Johnson & Johnson, Facebook etc. Training is what we do best at our core.

Next week will take a look at how if you already have a technology background how you can get a jump on your peers. We wish you a blessed and prosperous rest of the week! See you next Monday!

Tech Newbie & New Media

Tech Newbie & New Media

Hello! How was your weekend!? Great I hope!! It is your neighborhood tech newbie. My weekend was very nice, if you are wondering!! Got to help my mom plant a part of her gardenJ! Over the past few weeks we have been discussing new & social media. By now I think we all have a pretty good idea, of the benefits it presents to each of us. Give N Go is reducing NPO’s bottom line through partnerships and networking. Nurturing these partnerships alleviates the need for additional overhead in terms of marketing and public relations in consideration for NPOs’ shrinking annual budgets. Our intent is to assist other “grass root” NPOs and help them become current in today’s new social media tools such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter where the internet expands a company’s reach like never before. In today’s virtual market place 86% of NPO’s nationwide have a presence on these sites. With that number in mind of that 86%, half (50%) of them also state that they don’t effectively use those sites. 46% of these non-profits indicate fundraising as an important role for their social networking presence, making soliciting donations the second most popular role behind marketing the organization. These funds can go back into the company’s budget helping to further sustain progress. Acquired capital will assist in supporting new programming for multiple NPO’s locally and nationally: which in turn contributes to the spread of even greater community impact.

Our flagship initiative Start Something is built to create visibility for community based projects. This is essential to fulfill a shared vision that will also increase exposure and marketability.   Additionally, NPO’s will be able to use our system to post events and news.  By strategically positioning ourselves in the media our NPO partners gain real time access to the masses during prime viewing and listening times. Comparatively, to address other developmental needs to increase their overall appeal, we’ll also assume the role of intermediary for NPOs seeking relationships with Corporate America and the entertainment industry.

Give N Go is seeking support to help, empower, and strengthen a very, needed nonprofit sector. With the new arrival of social media and other means to engage audiences, the competition for funding has grown fierce. Bridging the gap between sponsorships, underwriting, and advertising will allow for better synergy between cause marketing and social media. Cause Marketing involves a cooperative effort, from a “for profit” business and a Non-Profit Organization for mutual benefit. The first major difference between cause marketing and what most believe to be corporate giving is that the latter involves a tax deduction. For profit companies engage in cause marketing regularly due to shared social concerns. The company’s highest priority is the relationship between them, NPO and the underlying relationship maintained is the one in the communities they reside in helping them to leave their personal footprint.

Social Media, Content Marketing, Fundraising, Cause Marketing

Forty-one percent of Americans say they have purchased a product in the past year because it was associated with a social or environmental cause. Eighty-three percent of consumers want more of the products, services and retailers they use to benefit causes, according to the new 2010 Cone Cause Evolution Study- the nation’s only 17-year benchmark of cause marketing attitudes and behaviors. Monetary support will allow us to carryout Give N Go’s mission and objectives of engaging NPOs’ existing sponsors and volunteers in a new way that will increase participation and ultimately create a new resource for advocacy through networking and sustained partnerships. Funding will provide operating support so that GNG may implement programming effectively that fills gaps in the NPO sector, while also creating a platform to shape and reinvest in our youth.
