Week 10 of Talent Path – Researching New Technology

Week 10
by Vismaya Kondapalli

Hello everyone. this is Vismaya, a new associate with Talent Path. You have probably seen the blog entries from my fellow team members. I am excited to share with you what we have been focused on here in week 10.

Each of us were tasked with researching and learning different technologies, such as Hadoop or SAP, on our own. The process is intended to show you how to learn on your own like how you would in the real world with new technologies. You do not always have someone there to hold your hand and teach you. It was good practice, so that we know how to go about using new tech. Once we had enough time to feel competent with what we learned, we presented our specific technology to teach the rest of the class. This week was perfect training for life and our future careers.

This program is teaching so much and is so focused on ensuring that we learn from the educational team, learn on our own, learn in teams, and most important that we are able to apply what we are learning. We have a few weeks of training left and I feel like I am close to graduating grad school, but with all kinds of useful information and ready to start working with my client.
