    CompTIA forecasts business evolution in latest annual cloud computing survey

    So when you got out of bed this morning and got ready for work, did the Cloud help you shave, tie your shoes, find your car keys and hand you a breakfast burrito on your way out the door?

    British Computer Society debates impact of Internet of Things

    The Internet of Things is everywhere. Maybe not literally everywhere — yet.

The change is bound to have unintended …

  • Gamification may soon have an impact on certification.

    Playing games with certification: An idea whose time has come?

    Gamers are problem solvers at heart. They just solve problems that are a little out-of-the-ordinary, like jumping on a turtle’s head and then kicking its shell into an oncoming line of ambulatory mushrooms that are spoiling for a fight.

There really are, however, 1,000,000 CompTIA A+ certification holders. Not only …
