Question by : New facts – What would be the best computer skills to learn for the future? 10 points?
Hi ! I am a 27yr old MBA student with about 6-9 months of free time.So, I am thinking of learning a computer skill that I will enjoy and might be useful somewhere in future.
With this background (probably no background by your standards !), what would you suggest that I should learn ? I am looking to learn something that would be easy to learn and fun. Preferably the skill you mention should not become redundant a few years down the line. It will be better if I can use it somewhere in daily life so that I stay in practise while using it. I want to ideally learn something that would help me in my job as a manager in the future.
I have surfed to internet to narrow down to a few skills and have taken some opinions from people who know stuff. This is the list of things I have made :
1.Java or C#
2.Dreamweaver, Web design (MySQL and PHP)
5.MS Access and MS Excel
7.Brute force software (have no idea what that is !)
9.Linux (emphatically recommended)
10.Something with security, privacy, anti-hacking, something along those lines
11. Cloud computing, Software As A Service, Platform As A Service, Cloud computing
12.Surveillance, Understanding Facial Recognition
Can you please analyse these for me from the point of view of Relevance to my work as a manager, Longevity, Ease to learn and Fun.
