Intro to emerging technologies

Free learning and resources

Curious about tech but not sure where to focus? Start with Explore Emerging Tech which provides an introduction to six emerging technologies powering today's jobs: AI, blockchain, cloud computing, cybersecurity, data and analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Follow up with the Open Source Origin Stories course where you can dive into an interactive lesson about hybrid cloud computing, AI ethics, and open source technologies, all while you earn a badge.  You'll learn a little about each—like foundational concepts, terminology, and applications. Then you can decide where you want to go deeper.
