Are you an educator teaching at an accredited university or college?  Do you want Azure cloud subscription grants for you and your students?  All you need to do is register with some basic information at:

The current grant amounts (subject to change and regional differences, of course) for reference:

Azure Grant $250/month instrcutor, $100 month Student

If you teach a technology-related course, you may be eligible for these grants.  Remember, Azure includes more than Microsoft technologies, so these grants can cover a wide variety of course subjects.

The Job of the Future

I agree with this:

The intellectual equipment needed for the job of the future is an ability to define problems, quickly assimilate relevant data, conceptualize and reorganize the information, make deductive and inductive leaps with it, ask hard questions about it, discuss findings with colleagues, work collaboratively to find solutions and then convince others.

Robert Reich

Do you think this we are educating our future generations for this sort of job of the future?  Are we creating the type of learning and living environments that encourage our kids to tackle these kinds of tasks?
