Top 5 Free Agile Courses for Programmers and Software Engineers - Best of Lot

Technology is changing at a rapid pace and market conditions, tough competition, and time-to-market are some of the biggest concerns for today's organizations, especially for technology companies. In order to adapt this fast-changing environment, most of the companies are now using the Agile model of development, testing, and project management. This enables the organizations to efficiently cope with changes and deliver faster and that's why for a programmer or an IT professional, a solid knowledge of Agile methodologies and framework is important. It doesn't matter whether you know the Waterfall model of development or not but it does matter whether you have worked in an Agile environment or not. In order to educate programmers about Agile, I have shared some of the books to learn Agile in past and today I am going to share some of the free online Agile courses you can take to learn Agile methodologies at your own pace.

Top 5 Big Data and Apache Spark Courses for Java Developers to Learn Online in 2018

Slowing economy and the recent trend of job cuts in India and elsewhere have made many programmers anxious about their job security. I receive a lot of emails and Facebook chats about suggestions to improve IT skills to remain competitive and marketable. So, if you are in the same boat, you can learn Big Data and IT Automation to remain marketable. These two skills are in great demand and will generate a lot of jobs in future. I have suggested many Java developers around the world to learn Big Data Technologies e.g. Apache Spark to give their CV a new boost. Since it's not easy to learn a new technology and at a certain age, you feel a lot of restriction and resistance from both your body and mind. In order to overcome that I found a combination of books and online courses works great.
