How To Read This Book
(Page 2 of 2)
Microsoft has a favorite term, heard on their campus. They call it, Eating our own dog food. They mean they use their own tools to create new work. (This is great until some test version of an email distribution system running the campus dies.)
Since you the reader are attempting to learn the INs and OUTs of the IT industry, we have brought you what it looks like to eat your own dog food. This book doesn't have the traditional label of introduction. Instead, we used a popular form in IT as your first clue to look for whenever you are unpacking a new piece of computer hardware or software. It is called, Readme.1st, READ.ME, or Read.Me!, or other clearly labeled warning that is too often ignored.
We find that if you are patient, and go through and complete the exercises this will reinforce your learning and the information will stick with you.
We ask the average student to plan on a minimum of 10 hours of study time after completing the course.
A visual person you say? We have included lots of pictures and screen shots of the topics under discussion to help you correlate what you are reading with what you will see live.
Tao is Chinese for how. The how of InsideScoop to reflects elements of our Tao in the classroom. The old saying, Tell them what you are going to tell them. Then tell them. Finally tell them what you told them has merit. The way the human mind works best is by as many different input styles as possible and repeat as much as possible.
With that in mind, you will hear some points said one way, then referred to or re-stated again. We compared notes throughout the process quite frequently. And when we felt that a point was a 'gotcha', in the real world, we each spoke our piece. A wise person could consider the repetitions a gotcha meter.
