Since 1997 Internet Technology University and Internet Technology Systems(ITS, Inc.) offer education and consulting in the latest trends of software development.
We solve challenging technical tasks - the most interesting solutions have been patented and published - we share ideas and best practices in books, articles, and at International Conferences.
Check some of our publications:
- Software Semantic Evolution with SOA and Microservices, RAML and DataSense by MuleSoft and the Next Step
- IT of the future: Big Data and Semantic/Cognitive Computing
- Top Development Skills
At http://FixingEducation.us we describe our approach to training. Most of the schools and training courses cannot work around individual differences. They look for mainstream students aligned with the pace and style of the course, which is usually about 30% of the group.
We offer individual guidance to each student to begin and advance a career of a developer, helping to become a capable and confident professional.
ITS, Inc. is registered as one of the best Employment Training programs in Web and Mobile Apps, Big Data and Business Intelligence. This is not only cool stuff to learn but very attractive for potential employers looking for these hard-to-find skills.
Three to six months of focused study is a valid alternative to three to six years of college. Instead of a degree and a sizable loan, for a fraction of the cost ($20/lesson), you open a door to IT, learn fundamentals and start programming robots and games, create your own web and mobile intelligent apps. Technical background can help you moving faster, but it is not required.
Online study is helping many people across the world in the learning process. There are several websites such as Lynda.com, Udemy and Total Training, which provide access to thousands of course libraries.
However, most of online courses have the following common limitations:
- One approach for all students
All students are different, which is why one single tutorial on a subject might not be able to answer all the questions that each individual student might have. This can become quite a problem for those who need to ask a question, but do not have the right resources and left to their devices to find answers.
- Too Many Useless Connections
When investing time to study from a tutorial, students realize that it had little to no relevance to the subject matter – or added very little value to their knowledge.
- No Hands-On Experience
Online tutorials in most cases hardly give students any exposure to real-life projects, just providing simple, often not even complete, examples.
We do better! by offering our students personalized guidance from an experienced instructor.
IT University carefully navigates around thousands of existing subjects and tools and provides a selected set of courses that help building the ladder to the latest internet technologies. At each step of the ladder, students grow their confidence by working in small teams on real projects. This set of courses is well integrated and optimized for the area of the biggest demand giving the students great chance for a job and a career. The schools uses innovative methods of education.

These methods focus on soft skills, such as art of Critical Thinking and Communications, important pre-requisites to Knowledge Engineering and to the science of Integrated Software and Knowledge Architecture. Although the science of Integrated Software and Knowledge Engineering is not offered in the colleges and universities, these skills are quickly becoming dominant in development arena.
Growing importance of communications skills is gradually changing demography of a development crowd. Women, who naturally communicate more than men, have an advantage here. Find more about the upcoming changes in the article about Women and Men in IT and management: http://WomenAndMen.us/WomenAndMen.pdf.
The biggest benefit of online training is still there, students can study at their convenient time with their personal pace, while working under guidance of an experience instructor, who assists a student in getting a job as a developer, consultant, or a start-up entrepreneur.
Web applications with full stack is the mainstream of modern development.
So, why Java? Why not Ruby on Rails, one of the simplest frameworks, Python or PHP?
Ruby on Rails, Python, PHP and more scripting languages are designed to make web applications easy. This choice provides simple ways for simple applications, quick results for prototypes, but comes short of delivering production enterprise software. As soon as a developer abandons this simplicity and starts deepening into any business or science domain, s/he needs a set of rich libraries. Fortunately, millions Java developers add these libraries to open source on daily basis.
In the Web Frameworks section you find Java-based frameworks, such as Spring and more, which are similar to Rails in simplicity but offers more diversity and integration capacity. This is just part of full stack technology. The students choose projects in the area of their interests: Biotech, Robots, Drones, Games, Stock Market, etc.
