Let’s talk about what’s new and what the new certifications look like.
Course Focus: CNS-420 Citrix Networking Assessment, Design, and Advanced Configuration
Summer 2018 brought the release of the newest Citrix certification, the Citrix Certified Expert-Networking. A key step in preparing for this top-tier certification is the new Citrix course CNS-420: Citrix Networking Assessment, Design, and Advanced Configuration. As a Networking CCI (Citrix Certified Instructor) for the past five years, I’m very happy to see Citrix introduce a comparable certification stack to their flagship Virtualization product line. Better yet, this new CNS-420 course looks to fill in the gaps in the curriculum that will prove to be extremely valuable for the Networking professional.

7 Industries Leveraging Machine Learning
There are a handful of definitions out there, but put simply, Machine Learning is the science of getting computers to execute tasks without being explicitly told to do so. Machine Learning is responsible for providing recommendations of products on Amazon or displaying recommendations on Netflix. Of course, it can (and does) get much more complex than that.
Machine Learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that is helping businesses analyze bigger, more complex data to uncover hidden patterns, reveal market trends, and identify customer preferences. By automating analytical model building, the insight gained is deeper and derived at a pace and scale that human analysts can’t match.
5 of the Most Influential Designers
I was at The Henry Ford in May attending the opening of an exhibit titled The World of Charles and Ray Eames. It was exciting to see so much of their work up close and personal. The exhibit does a great job of leading you through their careers, showing off furniture (including their famous plywood and leather lounge chair and ottoman, 1956), drawings, models, brochures, toys, film, and photos. There are notes and correspondence that are hand written in Ray’s fun calligraphy, and tons of sketches and personal photos that give you a glimpse of what it was like to be a designer in the 40s and 50s. You can learn more about the Eameses work here as they continued to work through the 1970s.
