In my line of work it’s important to keep up on the latest operating systems and hardware. If I didn’t do this, it would be difficult to service operating systems as they came on the market.
It’s harder to stay up on hardware since there are so many laptops, smartphones and desktop computers being released all the time. I do try to use as many different computers as I can.
Some of my resources are books, email bulletins, my own experiences on my equipment and on-the-job training.
One of the things I do is save on-line articles as PDFs. They get saved on my computers so I can reference them when needed or to be read them later. Things I don’t worry about are people promotions and technology predictions. I just deal with help information I can use now.
