Tech news, blog and careers advice

Are you one of the numerous IT workers who are concerned about losing your job? Many IT professionals are on the lookout for the pink slip. As firms explore ways to decrease costs, many have turned to laying off employees. Numerous highly trained IT jobs employees have been given the pink slip and laid off in order to reduce costs. This is a corporate strategy to minimise expenses and increase profits in the worst economy since the Great Depression. It is nerve-racking for IT professionals, with many wondering if they will be the next to be laid off. There are things you can take to increase your value to the firm and reduce your chances of receiving a P45. Be dependable Attendance has always been vital and is now more so than ever. Arrive at work on time and do not leave early. When you were sick in the past, you might have called in sick. Do so only if you are unable to work. Businesses need workers they can rely on to show up to work every day, on time, and for the entire day. Update your resume While this will not help you keep your current work, it is a good idea to update your new resume before you need it if all else fails and you find yourself looking for new IT Jobs UK . As you're creating your new CV, pitch your prospective employer on how you've been a valuable asset to your current job. Provide examples of how you've assisted your past employers in making or saving money. Concentrate on the benefits you can provide your prospective job. Educate yourself Improve your employer's profit value by constantly updating your knowledge and abilities. Inquire with your direct supervisor or the human resources department about continuing education possibilities. Several employers provide tuition reimbursement. Another option is to contact the local chapter of your professional association. One of its many responsibilities is to provide members with continuing education. They're also a terrific source of up-to-date industry knowledge. Become indispensable Don't shut yourself away in your office or cubicle. Take a look around you. Take note of which positions, projects, or activities are receiving more attention or involvement from management. Find ways to become more active in these activities if you still need to be a member of a must-succeed endeavour. Request that you be transported to a vital area. When the pink slips are handed out, you'll be seen as an employee who goes above and beyond while protecting yourself from being laid off. Keep your eyes & ears open Working in a top IT Jobs setting requires you to be aware of the concentric and intersecting circles that human equations work in. You must learn to embrace oddities and eccentricities, to be open to behavioural variations, to take the high road more often than not, and to be an excellent team player in the dynamics of the diverse smorgasbord of attitudes and goals. Keeping your ears and eyes open also keeps you in touch with the primary source of knowledge about major events and changes in the works. Be likeable If you have a hard exterior, you should try to soften it up. Businesses seek people who can work effectively together and get along. Avoid expressing your displeasure about something. Don't be that person who always says no or has a dark cloud over their head. Respect your coworkers and attempt to assist others whenever possible. Network again The time to build your network is now, not when you need something. Create a list of friends and coworkers with whom you last spoke. Email them, but invite them out for coffee or lunch if your friendship is strong. Reconnect with a few folks per month until your entire list is updated and irrelevant connections are removed. Take advantage of this opportunity to reconnect and catch up on events in your business and market. Stay positive Keeping a cheerful attitude through stressful circumstances can be difficult. It is critical that you maintain a cheerful attitude even in difficult times. If you lose your cool when anything goes wrong, it suggests you need to learn how to control your reaction. Having a good attitude toward your career and your work is significantly less stressful, and it is what others need to see from you in times like these. Prepare an exit strategy Every job in today's volatile IT Jobs UK market is not permanent. Every executive requires a clever and strategic plan that allows her to maintain control over her career no matter what happens next. The exit strategy serves as a safety net and provides you with peace of mind. With a good exit strategy in place, you can lead, innovate, and challenge the existing quo without fear of jeopardising your position. Summary While there is no guarantee that you will keep your job during the layoffs, you can take steps right now to increase your financial worth to your existing company. You'll feel less nervous while you work to raise the value of your employees. You'll also be several steps ahead of your job-seeking competitors if you lose your employment.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming more intelligent and efficient than humans. As a result, many jobs will be automated and replaced by AI in the near future. Robots are extremely intelligent and have a low margin for error when compared to humans. They are superior to humans in many ways. That is why machines are taking over so many jobs. Machines are not only less expensive, but they are also less troublesome. They would also not ask for a raise or slack off and would work nonstop for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, AI will never be able to replace all human jobs, but it will assist employees in performing better in jobs that cannot be fully automated. In this article, we will discuss eight IT jobs that will never be replaced by AI.   Software Developer Any kind of finished software product goes through a process where we first gather all the specifications for the various features that will be included in the software, the various metrics on which the success or failure of the features will be based, and also make decisions regarding the architecture of the system while keeping in mind the most effective tools to use. For instance, selecting the databases that will power the system and considering how to translate strictly business-related tasks into code are all decisions that call for strategic, intuitive, and intuitive decision-making. Additionally, Software Developer jobs have the added challenge of overseeing cooperation between various teams that make up a single system.   Project Managers Project managers are in charge of overseeing the entire project, including planning, budgeting, and resource allocation, even though AI can assist with scheduling and task management. Unlike project managers, AI will immediately give up when it comes to leadership, communication, stakeholder management, and decision-making because it is a data-feeding ML tool. A project manager cannot be replaced, but AI can be seen as an extension of the project management process. Project managers need to be able to adapt to changing conditions, comprehend and manage team interactions, and maintain a broad perspective of the project's goals. AI cannot perform these tasks because they require human intuition, creativity, and expertise.   Network Engineers Although AI can assist in network troubleshooting and provide some automation support, network engineers are in charge of designing, building, and maintaining complex computer networks. Network engineers will not become obsolete simply because AI exists. AI tools such as chatgpt and GPT-4 can only do so much automation. When there is a cloud outage, chatgpt will not be able to fix it and will need to be manually fixed. ChatGPT cannot perform tasks such as subnetting, device configuration, QoS, tailoring the networking experience to your specific environment, or cable installation. As a result, these IT Jobs will always be in high demand. They must also continue learning about new technologies such as cloud computing, IPv6, and automation to keep up with the latest advancements.   QA Engineers A QA engineer's job entails testing a product for various complex business scenarios. They must put on the hats of multiple users and consider the product's usability from all angles. To understand the full rationale behind a feature and to intuitively differentiate between a bug and a feature, a QA engineer must interact with the software developer, product, and design. Again, AI has the potential to automate several aspects of their journey and eliminate redundant or repetitive tasks. For example, AI can aid in the automation of integration tests, which are used by QA to determine whether an entire integrated system with multiple parts is functioning properly. All of the test scenarios for a given product would still require human intervention in these IT Jobs UK   Computer System Analysts No matter how automated we become, there will always be a need for a human presence to perform maintenance work, update, improve, correct, and set up complex software and hardware systems that frequently require coordination among multiple specialists to function properly. A Computer System Analyst, a profession in high demand in recent years, is responsible for reviewing system capabilities, controlling workflow and scheduling improvements, and increasing automation. We will soon see the Internet of Things enter our lives, in which an enormous number of devices will be interconnected, exchange data (ostensibly for our benefit), and interact actively with one another. As a result, this particular professional category is limited. Cybersecurity Analysts While AI can detect potential threats and vulnerabilities, the job of a cybersecurity analyst is to protect an organisation's digital assets proactively and respond to incidents in real-time. Although AI, such as ChatGPT or GPT-4, can assist in automating certain cybersecurity tasks, such as identifying and responding to security incidents, it cannot replace critical thinking, problem-solving, and strategic decision-making skills possessed by Cybersecurity IT Jobs. We know that there is a new cybersecurity threat every day that is constantly changing with time and that human expertise is absolutely required to protect computer systems and networks from unauthorised hacking, theft, and damage.   Hardware Technicians While AI can make suggestions and recommendations for hardware problems, it cannot repair or replace hardware components. If a person's computer fails, he will not go to ChatGPT or Bard to have it repaired. These AI tools can provide some data and information on how to fix hardware problems, but a hardware technician must resolve the issue. A hardware technician troubleshoots and repairs computer components such as CPUs, motherboards, and hard drives. They frequently use specialised tools and equipment to resolve problems and ensure that the computer runs properly. AI can only replace this job if it grows a pair of hands.   Data Scientists We would need data scientists/machine learning (ML) engineers to create new algorithms to optimise existing ones and solve new problems. Machine learning algorithms can help in a variety of fields, including supply chain management and quality control in large-scale factories. If some changes are expected, a convoluted neural network may need to be debugged to optimise or correct the expected behaviour, which requires human intervention to understand and unravel the code to find the fixes. An intuitive human can handle performance metrics monitoring of the algorithms that are being used and subsequent calls for betterment or trying a new approach well.
Companies simply cannot afford a data breach as the globe increasingly relies on technology for corporate operations and information exchange. Data breaches can cost millions of dollars and put sensitive information at risk. As a result, there is an increasing demand for Cyber Security Jobs all across the world. As more firms move their data to the cloud, cloud security becomes increasingly important, necessitating hiring hundreds of new cloud security professionals. To put it another way, businesses and law enforcement organisations are clamouring for cybersecurity experts. As long as cyber risks are a concern, cybersecurity positions will be in high demand, making it an excellent time to enter the field. Thus, you've come to the correct spot if you want to work in cybersecurity but need to gain the years of experience or formal cybersecurity expertise that many positions require. This cybersecurity career guide will cover all you need to know about getting a job in the cybersecurity field, including education, certifications, and the procedures to take. What is Cyber Security? Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting networks, resources, and systems from digital/cyberattacks. This means that if you take steps to safeguard a system or network from cyberattacks, you are engaging in cyber security. Cyber security is far more complicated than simply installing antivirus or antispyware software on your computers despite its seeming simplicity. It is a broad, comprehensive field that includes various disciplines and best practices for maintaining the safety of networks and digital systems, integrity, and reliability. Why is Cybersecurity Important? Digital life is growing more widespread and will continue to do so. We spend a significant portion of our time online, from social media to online shopping, gaming, and even remote work. They include passwords, credit card information, employee numbers, protected health information, personal data, and sensitive documents (such as copyrights, trade secrets, patents, and so on). A data breach could reveal sensitive information to persons with malevolent intent, causing serious embarrassment for individuals, reputational damage, and significant financial losses. A cyberattack's purpose is not always to steal information; hackers and hostile actors may also assault infrastructure controls and endanger data integrity. As hackers create new and ingenious methods of accessing secured data, these attacks cost organisations more and more money. According to data, a cyberattack occurs every 14 seconds. As a result, more IT Jobs in UK are needed to secure the data we rely on at both the individual and organisational levels. Education Requirements for Cybersecurity Jobs Cyber Security is a broad field with numerous employment opportunities. Whatever your background, you have something to offer the cyber security debate. As a result, the educational requirements for cyber security differ. For example, many entry-level Technology Jobs in UK may not require a bachelor's degree in cybersecurity or even a related discipline. More advanced positions, on the other hand, demand at least a bachelor's degree and, in some situations, a master's degree. A bachelor's degree in cyber security or a related discipline, as well as 7-12 years of experience in a related industry, are required for the post of Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), a mid-level executive who organises, coordinates, and leads an organisation's cyber security blueprint. A master's degree in the subjects described above is useful because some larger organisations require at least a master's degree in cyber security or a similar field. Nonetheless, keep in mind that obtaining certificates is the greatest approach to succeed in a cybersecurity profession. Necessary Certifications for Cyber security When you seek further experiences outside of college, consider getting cybersecurity credentials. Certifications that may be useful for professionals in this industry include: CompTIA Security+ With this qualification, you can examine enterprise company security and plan solutions for any flaws you discover. Passing an exam hosted by CompTIA is one of the requirements for achieving this certification. SANS/GIAC Certification The SANS/GIAC Certification prepares professionals for real-world cybersecurity applications. Digital forensics, hacking theory and protection, network defence, and audits to improve vulnerable systems' security are among the required abilities. GIAC Certified Incident Handler Workers who hold the GIAC Certified Incident Handling certification are trained to defend the systems they design and maintain in order to thwart cyber attacks. Students prepare for the most prevalent vectors of these attacks and build abilities to respond to live attacks with ethical hacking techniques to avoid data loss. ITIL Certification ITIL Certifications demonstrate that a professional possesses the capabilities required to alter information technology (IT) to be more robust, prevent digital-source assaults, and modify how organisations use IT systems. These certificates cover a wide range of talents and can demonstrate to future employers years of ongoing skill development from individuals who take these courses. 4 Steps To Get a Cybersecurity Job Below are four steps you can follow to find a cybersecurity job: Update Your Resume Make sure to update your resume before applying for an entry-level cybersecurity position. This can be accomplished by including your most recent certificates and experiences. For example, if you recently finished a position as a cybersecurity intern, you can include that experience on your resume. You can also study the job description and tailor your CV to the language and skills listed. Both can assist you in demonstrating that you have significant professional experience and skills that match the needs of the organisation. Attach Certifications Industry certifications have evolved into an important part of the cybersecurity ecosystem. Certifications provide a level of knowledge and skill that is extremely beneficial to businesses during the hiring process. They assist present and aspiring cybersecurity professionals in gaining knowledge and in-demand skills in critical areas. Certifications are especially crucial in the cybersecurity profession, and many high-paying Software jobs in UK may demand specific credentials in addition to education. They raise your profile when approaching prospective employers and are frequently mentioned as needed or preferable for certain occupations. Look for Internships You can gain expertise in cybersecurity and related industries to make yourself more competitive for a position. You may pursue an internship to get experience and create strong work habits. You might also seek job shadowing to observe experienced cybersecurity experts at work and ask questions about what they do on a daily basis. This helps you comprehend these individuals' functions in their organisations and build practical cybersecurity knowledge. Apply For Jobs You can hunt for cyber security jobs in a variety of places. Employment boards allow you to search for positions by name and experience level. There are also professionals on these sites that can help you find entry-level employment and experiences where you can build your talents. Companies' websites frequently contain a page dedicated to opening vacancies. You can check over these and determine the requirements for the positions before applying, ensuring that you meet all of the requirements. You can meet other cybersecurity specialists as well as human resources personnel trying to hire new staff at networking events. As you attend these events, make an effort to interact with a few experts at various stages of their careers so you can understand where they started and how they evolved. Job fairs are gatherings where recruiters attempt to identify qualified candidates for their organisations. Take copies of your CV with you to a career fair so you can submit them to recruiters.

With an average yearly compensation of £44,550, this is one of the highest-paying IT contract tech positions, with the potential for full-time employment. These are but a few instances of contract IT Jobs. The technology industry is continually changing, and when new technologies are produced and used, new roles may emerge.    
As technology advances and pervades almost every aspect of our lives, the demand for skilled tech professionals has risen dramatically. However, only some people are cut out for coding and programming, which is often a requirement for many tech jobs. Fortunately, according to IT Job Board, many tech jobs do not require coding skills and are just as lucrative and in demand. Software Tester As the title suggests, software testers identify bugs, glitches, and areas for improvement in order for organisations to deliver a product that works properly. These individuals are well-versed in testing methodologies. They determine which tests are appropriate, create test scenarios, and select testing tools. Again, good communication skills are required because software testers must present their findings and make recommendations on what to fix. Knowledge of database queries and familiarity with automation, security, and APIs are other characteristics of a good software tester. Graphic Designer: Programming can be an artistic profession in many ways, but graphic design is primarily concerned with how something looks. Consider becoming a designer if you are artistic and want to work in technology. There are several specialisation options. You can, for example, design products and packaging for companies that make tangible goods. You may also be interested in designing advertisements, brand imagery, or web pages. Although everyone in technology can benefit from basic coding skills, there are plenty of opportunities for designers who want to avoid coding. UI/UX Designer: The designer is a good career option for individuals, especially in today's times when almost every business is concerned with providing a superior user experience for better user retention - User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI).

Programming languages are the foundation for a computer programmer, software developer, and software engineer jobs . Generally, the more languages software engineers know, the more job opportunities they have. Software engineering is the practice of planning, designing, developing, testing, and maintaining software, and it is an important part of many businesses and organisations. Software Engineering aims to create high-quality, dependable, and efficient software. The key to success in Software Engineering is a rigorous process and the use of the appropriate tools. Successful Software Engineers must be able to think logically and creatively and have strong programming and problem-solving abilities. Programming skills enable Software Engineers to create code that converts designs into functional software. Programming abilities are also required for debugging software and troubleshooting problems. What Are Programming Languages? Computers use machine code or binary strings of 0s and 1s to operate. Users can use programming languages to convert human-operated commands into a format that computers can understand and execute. There are hundreds of programming languages, each with its own syntax that allows users to write instructions. Low-level languages are more like machine code, whereas high-level languages use words like "run" and "object", which are more like traditional written language. Developers can write source code in an IDE or text editor and then compile it into machine language. Why Are Programming Languages Important for Software Development? Nearly every stage of the development process requires the use of programming languages. Programmers are responsible for creating source code as directed by engineers or developers. Software engineers use engineering principles and the scientific method to maintain and create software products that work well with hardware development. Software developers create software systems and envision modifications and features that will be coded. While some jobs may only require developers to know one programming language, software developers, engineers, and programmers should ideally learn several to compete in their fields. Learning multiple languages can help developers demonstrate their problem-solving abilities, versatility, and ability to adapt to market demands. Software development is a rapidly changing industry, and broadening your skill set is an excellent way to ensure that your competencies remain current as the popularity of programming languages shifts. Programming Languages for Software Engineers Python and Javascript are two of the most popular programming languages software engineers use. Programming languages have various applications, properties, and uses, all of which are valuable in a career as a software engineer. C++ C++ is a powerful object-oriented programming language that is commonly used in system programming, gaming, and graphics applications. It has been around for a long time and remains one of the most popular programming languages for software development. C++ is a strongly typed programming language that can aid in the detection of bugs early in the development process. It is a fast language capable of producing efficient code, and it has a large software development community to help you with any issues you may encounter. C++ is also cross-platform, which means it can compile code for multiple platforms. Java Java debuted as a high-level, object-oriented programming language in the 1990s. Java was created with a simpler syntax that is simpler to learn and use than C and C++. Java is a language programmers use to create embedded systems, big data technologies, and web and mobile applications. Java uses classes to define attributes and behaviours and has fewer dependencies than many other languages. Java can now inherit properties and behaviours from classes without having to start from scratch. Java is one of the most widely used programming languages for creating software because it has robust security protocols and is independent of any one platform or system. Python Python is a high-level, interpreted programming language that is commonly used in Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning applications. It is also well-known for scripting and web development because of its simple, easy-to-learn syntax that emphasises readability. Python is critical for Software Engineering because it is a general-purpose programming language that can be used for a wide variety of tasks. It is relatively simple to learn for beginners and contains features that make it powerful for experienced developers. Python also has many libraries and modules that allow software developers to do almost anything with their code.   HTML/CSS Computer science professionals frequently use HTML and CSS together to create web pages. HTML, which was created in 1993, is more of a markup language than a programming language because it lacks inherent logic. CSS is a style sheet language that was created in 1996 to describe the presentation of information written in HTML or any markup language. Learning HTML will help you understand web principles better. Because HTML is one of the foundations of web development, staying up to date on language changes and evolutions is critical. CSS enables users to customise the appearance of a web page. CSS is a fundamental requirement for web application developers and software engineers who work with them.   C# C# is a Microsoft programming language used to create Windows and Microsoft Azure applications. It has a strong object-oriented structure, works well with the .NET platform, and provides excellent performance, developer productivity, and robustness.   JavaScript JavaScript is widely used in the development of web applications due to its applicability in both front-end and back-end development. Web users encounter JavaScript while playing games, making presentations, and engaging in other interactive activities. Because an existing system interprets its code, JavaScript is more of a scripting language than a programming language. JavaScript is a popular software engineering language, particularly among those who work with web applications. JavaScript, which has syntax similar to C++ and Java, is fast and simplifies application upgrades and maintenance. Javascript can be used outside of a web browser and in network applications when combined with Node.js. SQL SQL (Structured Query Language) is a programming language that is used to manage relational databases. SQL, developed by the American National Standards Institute in 1986, handles data with a syntax comprised of clauses, expressions, predicates, queries, and statements. SQL is a database management system that stores, retrieves, manages, and manipulates data. SQL is built into database management systems such as MySQL and is particularly useful in big data analytics. Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft Access are other SQL database management systems. PHP PHP, or Hypertext Preprocessor, is a server-side language primarily used to create web servers. PHP is a platform-independent language that syncs with nearly all relational and non-relational databases and works well with HTML. PHP can be an excellent choice for developing web applications. Many industry-leading websites, including Facebook, WordPress, Shopify, and Wikipedia, use PHP infrastructures. PHP is also open source, allowing users to access and build upon a variety of frameworks while also collaborating with other users. Ruby Ruby is a high-level, general-purpose programming language that is frequently used in the development of Internet applications. The syntax of this server-side scripting language is similar to that of C++. Software Developers widely use this language to create Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripts. Ruby is an object-oriented programming language that supports both procedural and functional programming. Because Ruby can be easily embedded into HTML, many developers use it for web design. This language is used to build websites by many well-known companies, including Twitter, Hulu, and GitHub. Ruby web developers can use a variety of open-source frameworks to create unique projects. How Many Programming Languages Should A Software Engineer Learn? While there is no ideal number of programming languages to learn, developers should attempt to learn at least three. Most industry leaders build their tech infrastructures using a combination of programming languages. YouTube, for example, builds its front-end structures with JavaScript and its back-end structures with a combination of Python, C++, and Java. As a result, most high-level software development positions require candidates to be fluent in multiple languages. Fortunately, once you've mastered one programming language, it's often easier to learn another. In-demand languages can be learned by programmers who want to compete for high-paying jobs by enrolling in classes, attending boot camps, or using self-paced learning resources like those offered by Wrapping Up There are numerous additional programming languages, each with unique benefits and drawbacks. However, the language you choose for your project will ultimately be determined by personal preference and the project's specific requirements. The field of Software Engineering is both challenging and rewarding, and the skills you develop as a Software Engineer are highly sought after in today's job market. As technology advances, so does the field of Software Engineering, making it an exciting and ever-changing place to work. Do you want a rewarding career in software engineering?

Understanding these harsh truths can help you develop a confident and clear mindset for your IT career, whether you are a seasoned IT professional or just starting out. In this blog, you will look at the seven bitter truths of working in the IT industry. Long Working Hours Working in IT frequently needs long working hours, which can negatively impact your outside life. IT professionals are frequently expected to work extra hours in order to meet project deadlines or complete complex tasks. This can result in burnout, stress, and a sense of overwhelm. Long working hours can, however, be managed by setting clear boundaries, prioritising self-care, and developing time management skills. IT professionals can avoid burnout and perform better in their roles by maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Constant Learning IT Jobs London are constantly changing, and professionals in this field must stay current on the latest technologies, programming languages, and tools. To remain competitive in the industry, IT professionals must commit to lifelong learning and skill enhancement. Constant learning can be difficult, but it is necessary for staying relevant and advancing in the field. IT professionals can keep up with this by attending training sessions, taking online courses, and constantly looking for higher roles in an IT job board. High Pressure and Stress Working in IT Jobs UK can be extremely stressful, especially when you are managing tight deadlines, large-scale projects, and high-pressure meetings. IT professionals are frequently expected to deliver high-quality work while working under tight deadlines consistently. This eventually results in burnout, mental health problems, and general stress and anxiety. IT professionals can seek help from colleagues, mentors, and mental health professionals to manage stress. Building resilience and developing coping mechanisms can also assist IT professionals in effectively managing high-pressure situations. Limited Career Growth Opportunities Despite the high demand for IT professionals, this field's advancement opportunities can be limited. This is due to the fact that many IT Jobs UK has a flat organisational structure, which means fewer management positions are available. Furthermore, IT professionals frequently specialise in a specific area, which can limit their career advancement opportunities if they do not diversify their skill set. On the other hand, IT professionals can overcome these constraints by seeking new opportunities, networking with industry professionals, and developing diverse skills. Gender Bias and Diversity Issues The IT sector is still overwhelmingly male-dominated, with significant gender bias and a lack of diversity. Women and minority groups face numerous challenges in the IT sector, including discrimination, unequal pay, and a lack of leadership representation. To address these issues, IT jobs must include diversity and inclusion in their hiring and maintain a more inclusivity work culture. Highly Competitive Environment IT professionals must be prepared to compete with their peers for job opportunities, promotions, and salary increases because IT Jobs London are highly competitive. For those who prefer a more collaborative work environment, this may result in a competitive environment, which can be challenging. On the other hand, IT professionals can gain a competitive edge by putting their attention on honing their specialised knowledge and abilities, looking for mentor-ship opportunities, and keeping up with market developments and trends. In conclusion, IT jobs have their own set of difficulties, including long hours, demanding circumstances, and few chances for career advancement. By understanding these harsh realities and taking proactive measures to navigate them, IT professionals can develop successful and fulfilling careers in this fast-paced and exciting industry.
