Regret not getting a CS degree? Give this bundle a try


The Ultimate Careers in Computer Science Bundle is currently being offered in the Boing Boing Store, and features eight introductory courses from a variety of tech fields.

Aside from offering generally helpful technical interview advice in the Break Away course, this bundle will allow you to start preparing for a new career in the following areas:

QA Testing

Quality Assurance is a critical part of the software release pipeline. QA engineers ensure that no major bugs make it through to production using an array of automated testing tools. You can study the fundamentals of QA in Software Testing Omnibus: Sikuli, Selenium, JUnit and Principles of Testing.


If you're more of a numbers person, a job in financial tech will have you modeling economic behavior and financial risks to help you make sound market predictions. 

In the Fintech Omnibus, you'll get familiar with the tools of the trade, and the theory behind the practice.

Data Science

Big Data plays a role in countless industries, from global logistics to meteorology, and there are not nearly enough skilled data scientists to fill the available roles. If you want to learn how to glean insight from massive volumes of data, this bundle includes two courses tailored for just that: The Big Data Omnibus: Hadoop, Spark, Storm and QlikView, and GCP: Complete Google Data Engineer and Cloud Architect Guid.

Web Development

Since the web has become a viable platform for application delivery, talented developers can expect to stay highly employable for the foreseeable future. To get familiar with the front-end, the Web Development Omnibus gives an overview of essential JavaScript tools for building interfaces: JQuery, Angular, and React.

Machine Learning

Machine learning has vastly simplified the parsing of messy data. AI tech like voice recognition and computer vision have become more prevalent, and tools like TensorFlow have made machine learning accessible to a wider audience. You can explore this exciting field with Machine Learning and TensorFlow on the Google Cloud.

Product Strategy

Technology businesses need more than well-engineered products. Without proper market insight, even the best tech will flounder. For anyone who wants to learn from history's mistakes, Time Capsule: Trends in Tech, Product Strategy will let you take look back at the last 23 years.
