Re: Interop Kicks Off In Style
The adoption research sounds very interesting. I hope to make Interop next year. I would attend as many seminars as I can- so much to learn in one weekend.

Re: networking & mentoring
Hi Brian,

I agree, regarding the future number of devices which will be connected, then the phenomenal amount of data which will be exchanged, this area of technology is more promising. i followed a 5 days training in Big Data, and basically we saw how its a blessing for doing BI (Bussiness Intelligence), to predict custumers behavior, doing good marketing ... it's also more based on mathematics concepts ---- Someone here has already worked in this area?

Re: networking & mentoring
Hi Marcia, thanks! I think if that's dance there is no problem, technology and this kind of art can be joined. Of course, that's not new, be into networking and pratice these kind of activities help too much, imagine stay on the your computer and manage or configure or troubleshoot a huge number of device without  others activities like those... ouff!!! And that can be benefit if you are a well known into this,lol

Re: networking & mentoring
Jerome, that's good advice about staying curious and continous learning; I think that's pretty key to career advancement. In response to your question, one student said her 2 main interests were technology and dance.

Re: networking & mentoring
I agree, big data is predicted to create a large number of new jobs in the economy. With the pace at which networks are progressing, cost of technology dropping and data flowing into the enterprise -- demand for data skills is growing. An individual that has these skills will create a lot of benefits for their career.

Re: networking & mentoring
Hi Marcia, thanks for your feedback.

I agree with the panelists' answers.

For the first question, i will add to the existing answer : be curious in learning, in other words work to increase upon  your skills and try to diversify.

But, please Marcia, according to your, what did the students mean  by arts?

( art in the simple term or ... ?)

Thanks!

Re: networking & mentoring
It would be a good idea to gain a dual major. For instance, one major can be in a STEM subject and another in color psychology. This way, an individual can analyze data and then effectively communicate its meaning by utilizing visualization. Hans Rosling (one of the founders of Gapminder) uses visualization perfectly.

Re: networking & mentoring
Hi Jerome, the students asked the panel how they overcome obstacles in their career, and panelists said maintaining confidence and belief in yourself is key. Another student asked how to choose between different passions -- technology or the arts -- and panelists said that employers are looking for well-rounded employees, so you don't really need to make a choice.
