How to monetize your knowledge?

How to monetize your knowledge? What is the most expensive thing in the world? Do you think it's gold? Platinum? But no, it's information. Our knowledge can be different, the amount of money we have depends on the information we know. But sometimes a person may have some information, but they don't know how to use it.

How to monetize your knowledge? What is the most expensive thing in the world? Do you think it's gold? Platinum? But no, it's information. Our knowledge can be different, the amount of money we have depends on the information we know. But sometimes a person may have some information, but they don't know how to use it.   Let's take a simple example. Each of us at work takes care of certain functions. For example, Natasha knows how to create a beautiful design for landing pages, while Alexandre can make a good layout. It is logical to assume that Alexander will not be able to work in the company as a designer, because he did not know the business. On the other hand, it is unlikely that Natasha can make money by making layouts. Let us now look at the labour market. What happens if there are not enough competent specialists? The prices of works simply increase, and any competent specialist is worth the weight of gold. If you think that gold is not enough t

What Professions and Jobs Will Remain in the Future?

In a couple of years, a significant part of the responsibilities will go to robots and automated systems. What will happen to the labor market?

In a couple of years, a significant part of the responsibilities will go to robots and automated systems. What will happen to the labor market? How will we perceive success in the age of automation? How will people share jobs with robots and bots? What professions will not disappear and remain in demand? Automation of Workplaces, Drones and Robots   The problem of automation is not a new one. This is not a new phenomenon that arose yesterday or the day before. Queen Victoria, 500 years ago, worried the knitting machine would leave her people without a means to earn an income, she therefore, in every way possible attempted to prevent the granting of a patent for that invention.   Have you heard about Henry Ford and the fact that he fired workers in his factories and created an automated conveyor for the production of cars?   Due to automation, industrial production has significantly accelerated, and some processes have become simpler.   And the new engines

The Most Popular Programming Languages

In a couple of years, a significant part of the responsibilities will go to robots and automated systems. What will happen to the labor market?

It’s not a secret that every programming language has its own field of application. Some of these languages are used more often than others. In this study, we are trying to find out which language is the most popular, analyzing the statistics of known IT platforms.   First of all, you need to take into account that the popularity is evaluated by various factors, among them:   • Number of vacancies, courses and educational literature. • Language references in discussions at specialized forums. • Number of projects on IT platforms. • Language references in search queries.   For example, GitHub published its rating of the most popular languages according to the number of pull-requests (even the first pull-request of Linus Torvalds was taken into account). In this rating, the leader was JavaScript, which has 2.3 million queries. Next, with a large margin is Python with 1 million. The first five included Java, as well as Ruby and PHP.   The pop

Game Development or How We Teach Children to Code

Coding now is an important and integral part of the world.

Knowledge and understanding of coding are needed not only in the work of the coder himself, but also in the thousands of current professions. In the future this will include all professions. Therefore, it is extremely important to give children a chance to understand coding as early as possible – preferably in childhood.   In the Junior Computer Academy before teaching our programming languages, we teach unusual, but already in demand courses such as “Game Design.”   The computer games industry is incredibly profitable. Just look at the leaders of Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games. For example, Dota & League of Legends brings their creators tens of millions of dollars a month.   What is included in this course and how extensively did we prepare for its delivery? • Hundreds of books on game development and design were read. • Dozens of professional foreign courses were considered. • Every instructor authorized to teach is a true gamer
