Basics of Building a Desktop Computer & CompTIA ITF+ Test Prep

Computers are an absolute necessity in the modern world, though knowing how to use them is only half the battle. Understanding the layout and internal parts of a desktop computer will provide you the knowledge needed to upgrade and replace various parts in an existing desktop computer, design and build a desktop computer from scratch, and acts as a foundation for the learning of future computer skills, such as programming or troubleshooting.

In the process of learning these skills, you'll also learn everything necessary in order to pass the CompTIA ITF+ certification exam! This certification is an optional way of expressing your skills to potential employers and is most useful to young people starting out on their career path, and working adults considering a transition, however, this class will teach skills useful to people of any age and profession.

This course will be taught by Shane, where he provides a variety of services for clients from across the country. Shane is an experienced IT professional, having worked years for Fortune 500 companies, designed and built computers for both personal and professional environments, and is an avid gamer in his spare time. He was also a D1 ice hockey player in college and is an experienced teacher, having taught both computer and hockey skills professionally in the past.

Extra information

Since this class is taught online by webcam, you'll need a working computer. Specifically, you'll want to make sure your screen and speakers/headphones work so that you can follow along with the video.

If you'd like to enhance the experience and have access to an old or unused desktop computer, let Shane know and he'll happily tailor the course to help you to learn your specific computer better.

Further, if you were considering designing and building your own desktop computer now, Shane can help you to pick and purchase parts, allowing you to build your computer over the course of the class!

Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

Mastering IT for your daily needs
Hello, You are an adult and you need the technology to take steps or take actions. But it seems difficult to see insurmountable on your own. Arm with your notebook, you would like us to explain you step by step and know how to reproduce in order to gain confidence and autonomy! That's good, I'm able to guide you and explain what the platforms / sites expect from you! For example, how to lighten a file so that it is accepted on official sites? What are the different file formats? What are the tips to save time or make your job easier? I have a European license for computer graphics (design using the computer) and the handling and use of the different software (in French and in English) does not scare me. I have been helping those around me for many years, I have also learned to create tutorials. The language barrier is not a barrier. I have patience, curiosity and I am a teacher. And above all, I will create real situations drawn from our learning in order to assess your progress, give feedback and anchor your new skills! Take a first lesson in order to get to know each other and understand your needs, whether they are one-off or part of a longer course. Hope to meet you ! Amandine

Elasticsearch Logstash and Kibana training for all levels
Elasticsearch is a NoSQL database whose particularity is to be able to index strongly text-oriented documents. You could think of it as a search engine, but you could set it up to exactly match your search needs. Elasticsearch is therefore a search engine capable of storing a large quantity of documents and which can be queried in real time. In addition, its query language provides interesting interrogation possibilities that can be exploited to extract statistics in real time. In this course I explain how you can design your Elasticsearch cluster in an efficient way and also use it to index / search your data.

English Tutoring with Holistic Approach for All Levels
English has become the Lingua Franca of our times. It's a valuable skill to possess, beneficial for everyone. It comes handy in the ever-developing world that we live in and opens doors to many places, also in the mind. Additionally, bilingualism enhances the cognitive skills. Whether you'd like to improve your speaking skills and break the language barrier or you wish to prepare better for an English exam, I come to an aid. I'm a 3-year Linguistic student, I've achieved the C1+ levels in English, on the CEFR scale. I have 2 years of experience living in London, where I acquired RP (received pronunciation) and 3 years of experience in the International Academia (Amsterdam). My linguistic background gives me the capacity to explain the sounds and various processes of the language, from a perspective many natives do not know. In teaching, I practice the holistic approach. It is my belief that language is for people of every age and education, but I'm aware that everyone deserves a personal approach. That's why I offer the first meeting unpaid, so we can get acquainted and discuss the expectations of both sides. In classes, I will try to raise your confidence and knowledge in English, on 4 levels of proficiency: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. I will focus on your strengths and teach you how to use those to your advantage in learning. We will elicit your potential and together achieve the goals you set for yourself.
