Re: Extensive re-training efforts
ms.akkineni, agreed - knowledge is power.  And with technology, applications, new models, etc., there is always something new to learn.

I share your interest in staying informed with relevant information.  If you stand still today, you become outdated.

Note:  To your point with your son on algorithms, I totally agree.  The basics of framing problems, applying logic and data drives the programming.  Everyone should learn that.  He will fall back on that with time - even if he wants something with more immediate returns!

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
And forgot to mention, 'Algorithm' is the basic foundation for learning something new. Since I come from IT, I can relate this well to programming. When one has a commanding hold in basic algorithm skills, they can get to master any programming language easily.

I tried to enforce this as a pre-requisite for my son prior to him jumping into Java programming. Kids being kids who often times get restless till they see end result, I can say I only had partial success in my attempt. Atlease I  tried. :)

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
 I believe that the exposure to the new technologies, the increasing role of algorithms across the board, need to be basics.

@DHagar: Well said facts. Exposure is the very first step which facilitates seemless learning inadvarently. This is one of the driving factors for me to participate in these forums. All of us are so pressed for time and this platform gives an opportunity to get exposure into diverse areas / topis / technologies and what not. Unlimed and Unstoppable exposure and learning.

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
Ariella, good observations.  We don't have a true education system to support the "pivots" he is talking about.

I like his design of Foundational then Intermediate, Specialized, and Advanced.  I believe that the exposure to the new technologies, the increasing role of algorithms across the board, need to be basics.

I have taken two courses with Udacity, they are incredible.  AT&T has truly put together a progressive development system for their workers.

As you and Mike point out, these "modular" STEM or coding courses are not, in and of themselves, sufficient to create a culture prepared for digital transformation.

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
@Mike I don't believe my kids' school offers real coding classes either. There is a nice robotic elective, but that is only for a select few who get in on the basis of math and science grades. They don't have enough room in those classes for all the students.
