The Pickle with Procurement

When I reach any section on procurement in one of my courses, I regularly ask the question “What is procurement?”. The answer I am often given is “buying stuff”! To programmes, we often need to procure something from an external company. The more complex the programme the more likely you will need external help or materials.

Quanta now offers Scrum Alliance® Certified ScrumMaster!

We’ve made a change here at Quanta with regards to our Agile portfolio and we wanted to be open with our clients as to what those changes mean and why we have made them. Since starting our Agile offering in 2011 our Scrum courses have always been set to our own learning objectives, with an eye on helping people prepare for Scrum.org’s Professional Scrum Master I and Professional Scrum Product Owner I exams. As of June this year one of our Agile coaches, myself, has been accepted into the fold of another accrediting body, Scrum Alliance® – you can read more about Scrum Alliance® here. This is going to have some limited impact on our clients – but we hope it will offer a host of benefits too.

What's happening with ITIL4?

Advanced JavaScript using React with ES6

React is one of the top programming languages in the world and continues to grow

From almost nowhere, React has become the most popular JavaScript framework in use today. First released in 2013, it currently accounts for over 475k websites, is used by 65% of all JavaScript developers, has over 130k GitHub stars, and was ranked most popular JavaScript library in the 2018 State Of JS survey; but to write using React, you will have to get up to speed in all the enormous changes to JavaScript since 2015 (ES6 and beyond). These changes are non-trivial and take some time to master. In addition, whatever your future projects will involve, you’ll need to be comfortable with Webpack, npm and Babel to transpile, minify and bundle your code.
