Decades ago my great-grandmother said that a day she didn’t learn something was a wasted day. That’s even more true today.
The rate of change of technology, software and techniques is incredibly rapid. How do you manage to keep up?
Formal education is still important, but struggles to remain up-to-date. And more and more educational institutions are making their material available online, for example through iTunesU.
The Tuts+ Network and other blogs offer more current education, but without accreditation. Podcasts, YouTube channels and other video streaming sites also contain educational material, and forums are also often educational.
And books remain an excellent source of educational information, and are handier still now they are often available electronically and as audio books.
So how do you maintain your education? How do you make the time? And do you have any hints for us?
