        Online Tools for IT

        12/18/2012
        Contributed by National Officers

        Hey BPA,

        There are cool tools online to learn more about IT here are a few of my favorites:

        This site has tons of information from computer basics to building websites:

        http://www.bbc.co.uk/learning/subjects/information_technology.shtml

        This site has lots of free guides to improve your programming skills:

        This one is pretty cool.  It’s from Stanford University and included many things they teach in class for free:

         Did you see the new iPad mini?  It does a lot of great things and will only cost you $329.  The iPad has a lot of pretty cool apps available for free like iTunes U that will let you download lectures and papers for many courses for a lot of schools for FREE!  This is a great way to learn a lot and get ahead of the game.  If you don’t want to go out and spend over $300, you can also view these courses on your iPod, iPhone or on your computer through iTunes (The iPad just makes it a bit easier).

        There are many cool ways to communicate to the National Officer Team.  Three of the easiest ways are through: email, Facebook, and Twitter.  How can you make it easier?  You can subscribe to our updates on Facebook and Follow us on twitter.  If you have a smartphone or a tablet, you can subscribe to get updates as soon as we post!
