“Nowadays life long learning is the way to go, even if you’re already working, the work environment had become so complex that a business solution today, does not necessarily guarantee a solution to the same or similar problem tomorrow. Therefore take advantage of the opportunities presented by technology and instead of being enslaved by social media, spend time to further your education and enrich your knowledge in technology and its application”.
