Steven Wakefield

Bio

My name is Stephen Wakefield and I am a Software Developer. While being an office manager for three years, I was mentored by a Senior Developer in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL. I applied what I learned by building a resource site for the company I was working for, as well as a personal portfolio site (StephenWakefield.com). I found that I have a great passion for problem solving and tinkering with code. I get satisfaction from creating code that works and turning it into more efficient code. I believe that with dedication and creativity anything is possible.Read More

Installing Linux on a Windows Server – And Why It’s a Good Idea

Installing Linux on a Windows Server – And Why It’s a Good Idea

December 28, 2017 in Corporate IT Training, Microsoft / by Centriq Training

Yes, Windows is still the go-to platform for business – but there are times when sys admins, developers, webmasters, and others are going to need tools that are exclusive to Linux.

Others often find situations where they’d like to be able to use Linux features in their regular workflow, just for convenience’s sake.

Early in 2017, Microsoft announced it would add Windows Subsystem for Linux to Windows Server, allowing developers to use Linux alongside resources like CMD and PowerShell.

Windows Subsystem for Linux allows unmodified Linux binaries to run natively on Windows; thanks to WSL, it’s now possible to use nearly any Linux tool integrated into Windows.Read More

Awesome Add-ins for Word

Awesome Add-ins for Word

December 19, 2017 in Corporate IT Training, Microsoft Office / by Craig Gerdes

An add-in is a term used for a software utility added to a primary program. In other words, add-ins are mini applications that extend what you can do with Microsoft Office programs, such as Word. When you enable an add-in, it adds custom commands and new features that help increase your productivity.

By default, add-ins are not immediately available, so you must first install (and in some cases activate or configure) these add-ins so that you can use them. Many of the add-ins are free from the Microsoft Store (https://store.office.com). You may also be able to search for add-ins from third party vendors.Read More

Who Runs the World? Tech-Smart Girls.

Who Runs the World? Tech-Smart Girls.

December 15, 2017 in IT Career Program / by Elizabeth Granada

Forbes recently published the 2017 edition of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. Not only is the list composed of impressive girl bosses, but is filled with powerful female tech moguls that are marking major milestones for women in IT. Despite the prominent role women play in the technology field, women are still the minority: they hold only 24% of computer science jobs (a 13% increase since 1995) and occupy about 11% of executive positions in Silicon Valley. Many of these women are on a mission to change that.

NOAH MATA

Bio

I grew up in the Kansas City, Missouri area and was homeschooled as a kid. While in high school, I worked part-time with a drywall company and in food services. After graduating high school, I worked full time at my family’s drywall company and pursued my hobbies on the side. After a while, I realized with drywall I was just going through the motions and not taking time to challenge myself, so I decided to pursue a career change. I remembered trying code academy as a kid and enjoying learning the basics of HTML. I decided to look at a school for coding and found Centriq.Read More
