Tech & Dev Content Releases & 90-Day Development Plan

February 17, 2021 | by Mike Hendrickson
Tech & Dev Roadmap and Release Schedule

We just wrapped up our fourth quarter in January and, we thought it would be useful to highlight what we were creating in our Tech and Dev group the past few months and what is now available for most learners worldwide. The roadmap immediately below was created and released to our customers in February. It will be updated every Month (for customer conversations) and released through your Skillsoft contact/representative on a Quarterly basis. Further down is a line listing of our content releases during the 90-day window that each asset group falls into.

We'd like to highlight a few items that we think are of particular interest for our learners everywhere. We have seen more that 10,000 registered learners sign up for our numerous Bootcamps in 2021. And if you missed going to one, the replays are available in Percipio and cover a wide coverage of topics including Security, Data Science, DevOps, Programming, and Software Craftsmanship. Replaying these Bootcamps at your own pace and convivence is a great way to go deep on a topic. In fact, you can now open a coding Sandbox and follow along with all the instructors examples. You can search for Sandbox in Percipio or search for a topic and then filter on Lab as the modality. In the first quarter of 2021 we are going to be release more than 100 hours of Aspire Journey content, with at least 220 more hours coming. There are more than 80 hours of new Cloud and DevOps content that has been released and 90+ hours of Certification content was updated.

Lastly you may want to know what we are working on for future releases. We are working diligently towards integrating a cloud lab practice solution that will cover the major cloud platforms (AWS, GCP, Azure). We have some new Tech leadership content coming. This is content intended to keep tech leaders still sharp so they have a full understanding of the components, tradeoffs, benefits, pitfalls of a given subject. The first two are on Security, and Data. We have seen a spike in the number of companies who are endeavoring on a company-wide Data Literacy journey, so our Data Leadership journey will position leaders with the ability to be conversant, literate, and competent when discussing the subject and its importance.

Another area to focus your attention is around the notion of Site Reliability Engineering. Our new SRE journey, Network Admin to Site Reliability Engineer,

has skyrocketed since its release a couple months back. How do your tech professionals ensure that assets you make available online to customers, partners and consumers are always available. The 50+ hours we have built in this journey will take DevOps to the next dimension for many teams.

Whether it is because companies and security professionals see how serious the SolarWinds breaches were, we also saw Security course consumption skyrocket during the past couple of months. We now have five Security Journeys that can truly help any company thwart nefarious actors or security threats. One new proficiency journey performing very well is Security Threat Intelligence. These proficiency journeys are comprised of just one-track/role and focus on providing learners with enough learning, testing and practice labs so they can truly be proficient and build durable skills. This of these as a deep dive into a subject/role you need to learn.

Lastly we just released 27+ hours of official Amazon Web Services (AWS) content to our platform. This library is full of excellent AWS content but may surprise you with some other adjacent content on topics like Detecting Anomalies, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Mechanical Turk, and other data-oriented topics that work well in cloud environments.

Below are the individual course assets released to our Platforms in the past 90-days, and the next 90-days ahead of us. Content prefaced with AWS: means it is from Amazon and recently added.
