Our goal is to remain the unparalleled resource for real-world education for industry professionals ready to expand their knowledge and skills,” said Jennifer Hughes, education manager.

Topic submissions should focus on applications-oriented, real world, problem-solving topics and be free of promotional materials to sell a product or service.
