Hello, and welcome to our technical training blog, “Technically correct: the best kind of correct”.
If that doesn't sound a familiar phrase, then we recommend watching Matt Groening's Futurama.
This blog's posts are focused on technical training for software developers, including
training techniques, presentation skills, material development tips, hiring suggestions,
and management strategies.
Technical e-learning requires more time than instructor-led.
Before delving into details, I should be open in that I am
an instructor, and therefore I like running instructor-led training sessions. They’re my

any that showed the depth of knowledge I was hoping to see. I’m sure they’re out there,
so if you know of one, please leave a comment.
