I recently started learning how to play a musical keyboard. While some people might find this kind of challenge to be intimidating, I chose a realistic goal: learning how to play just one song. I didn’t start with the goal of mastering the instrument, because I don’t need to become an expert all at once.
You can take the same approach with learning more about technology—focus on learning a little every day. Over time, that knowledge adds up. I think we all can agree that the accelerating evolution of technology—cloud and hybrid computing, AI, IoT, etc.—requires us to be perpetual learners to keep improving our skills.
Taking a micro-learning approach makes learning less intimidating and often more relevant to the skills you need to acquire. It’s the approach we’ve taken for our upcomingMicrosoft Azure Cloud Week for Partners, a great opportunity to improve your knowledge for role-based Azure certification. By offering opportunities like these, Microsoft hopes to contribute to closing the widening skills gaps that affect our industry.
