The biggest problem for the tech world right now is a lack of talent and a surplus of demand. While web development jobs are becoming a necessary aspect of almost every company in the world, changing trends and shifting norms have made it difficult for potential candidates to impressive employers. Fortunately, there’s one platform that will help you continue your education with a little help from your peers.
Tech.io is a free knowledge-sharing platform for developers, by developers. By providing tools and resources to developers of all skill levels, this platform is bridging the gap between the experts and the noobs. You can learn about shifting trends, collaborate with known experts, and set up playgrounds for others to engage in, all in the name of education.
“Lifelong learning is developers’ number one concern,” said Nicolas Antoniazzi, CTO of Tech.io in a statement. “However, online learning resources are not always appropriate to professionals’ needs. They want to dive into a new concept in less than 10 minutes, rather than watching fastidious MOOC videos. We wanted to solve this problem by changing the way developers keep up with technology. We decided to make Tech.io practical and collaborative, because we believe peers are the most relevant people to offer a new perspective on ever-evolving technologies.”
Having just launched their public beta, Tech.io is more than excited about the potential for their platform. In addition to providing peer to peer learning that will spur web development education, they also allow users to engaged in interactive elements of programs, while compiling and running code without the need for installation.
This kind of education model is not just convenient, it’s absolutely necessary to match the web development needs hitting the business world. With few teaching programs dedicated to mastering these skills, having peers teach each other could be the next big step in addressing the talent gap in the web development sector. And all we can say is, it’s about time.
