I can’t believe it’s already September! The nights are getting cooler, the days getting shorter, and for a large chunk of the world, it’s time to start re-engaging your brains as the fall school semester begins.
For those of us who have been out of the school rhythm for a while, maybe it’s time to think about taking a class to brush up on a skill or to learn something new. community colleges, at least here in California, are running a lot of their courses online and during evening hours to accommodate students who have regular jobs but want to further their educations or change careers.
One of our local community colleges here in Silicon Valley, California (Foothill College) has an online PHP and SQL course that is taught online starting September 22nd. The class still has openings, and is self-paced so you can fit it in to just about any busy schedule. Registration is open to any California resident, and you can visit this page for information about the online programs offered by them.
If you’re outside California, check with your local community college or university extension to see if they have classes that may interest you. Learning shouldn’t stop when we leave school; it’s a lifelong event.
