Happy New Year! Welcome to the first issue of 2021! 2020 has been a strange one indeed, we’ve faced a lot of challenges, but we also learned more about ourselves and that’s always a good thing. We’ve spent less time traveling and more time learning and connecting with our families and friends.
One thing’s for certain, technology hasn’t stopped evolving and there has been an increasing number of quality materials to read and new technologies to explore. We just hope to see more in-person contact in 2021. so we can all enjoy that human contact and sharing ideas eye-to-eye.
Our resolution for this year is to create even more free content and make learning available to more people than ever. We have some pretty ambitious goals for this year, so stay tuned.
Until then, enjoy the rest of your holidays, pick an article to read, and relax as much as possible.
