From NetRiders participant to WorldSkills competitor to being an Expert in WorldSkills to starting your own company … one of the personal stories.
If you talk to someone who has been at one of the WorldSkills competitions, you will learn that their experience has effected their in a similar way. It affected mine.
Many of the competitors were Networking Academy Students or even NetRiders before, win the National Skills Competitions, represent their countries on a global level, become expert after that and continue to support the Skills competitions in the years after that. Here is one of many examples:

NEW this Year
This year will be the largest competition ever, there are new technical description and a couple of new rules upon that. Many experienced experts will help the expert team to deal with all changes.
For the first time we are launching a pilot initiative to connect Cisco experts with competitors as they prepare for the competition in August.
Another new activity: a hackathon-style event where WorldSkills Champions and local technologists team up to solve real-world problems faced by Brazilian NGOs: 12-15 August, 2015 in São Paulo wsdc2015.worldskills.org

Studying IT in Thorildsplans Gymnasium Stockholm, Sweden
Its remarkable today what kind of power you have just under your fingertips. I discovered this in an early stage. As a young boy I was fascinated about how one could gain access to another one’s computer and remotely use it. That discovery opened my eyes to the real definition of the internet. The features on the internet that are visible for us are just a diminutive part I thought. Opening a webpage or calling your loved one on skype are example of those “visible” things, the things that you deliberately do. But the internet is far greater than that.
Right now there are more than 3.0 Billion people connected to each other through the Internet. This means that more than 35% of the world’s population can go out on the internet, share knowledge, learn new stuff and spend some free time, but just as the internet has opened the world for each and every one of us, it has also opened up each and every one of us to the world. That means that the price for us to pay for us to stay connected is our privacy. I discovered that recently when I was asked to work on a 100 hour high school assignment which is meant to be a proof that the student is prepared for higher education or for work in a specific occupation.
What frightened me was the thought that we are constantly leaving our names, our birthdays and even our credit card information out on the internet, whether it’s regarding Facebook, PayPal or eBay. Seeing all this gave me a thought. I thought that the people should be warned, they should be feared of leaving such information in a wide and invisible place. So I thought that the best way to demonstrate it, is by creating a Trojan virus and infecting a PC to prove that without any hacking knowledge and limited programing knowledge you can steal private information without being noticed.
This resulted in me a 18 year old IT student learning python and creating a python program that could record your keystrokes and take pictures of your screen and invisibly send all the logs to a webserver accessed by only me. I was shocked to what I had accomplished and how easy it was to find all the research necessary. Therefore I feel its my obligation to in the best way I can, spread the word, and spread the truth that the invisible must be feared, because it gathering information about you and someday that information can be used against you.

… without learning a programming language.
Some of you might remember … the ones who came to the Cisco Partner Summit in Barcelona from 22-23. October 2014. Yes, the IoE Workshop “Be Creative with IoE: building a smart thing” where we were building a smart alarm clock.
If you are a student, it is probably hard to imagine that teachers can also work in a team to create something together. They did and this was the team composition:
- Manager – ensures the projects are implemented and that everybody is working 🙂
- Designer – design and construct the box
- Programmer – programs the software inside the boards
- Engineer – connect the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino, peripherals of I/O, wires
Great work, super fun and we are looking forward to IoE classrooms in the Cisco Networking Academy World.
Now we have a challenge of for everyone:
Impress Santa and get your present – Enter the #Xmashack Contest
Thanks to the Technical Field Team of the Cisco Networking Academy Bogdan Doinea, Marc Khayat, Serges Nanfack Fomekong, Eugene Morozov and Giuseppe Cinque and the creators of the cool tool Wyliodrin – you can build cars or robots that can move around while your smart device is being programmed – Alexandru Radovici, Ioana Culic, Ovidiu Stoica who were supporting the teams.

Dear ASC and ITC Partners,
A new course is available for you to teach: Linux Essentials
Developed by our partners NDG
You and your colleagues are invited to attend our Webinar on the benefits of teaching Linux Essentials, both for you and your students, presented by Rich Weeks from NDG. Even if you are already teaching with Linux content, this is an opportunity to see how you can make it more fun.
We have two time slots available before Christmas
Wednesday, December 17 from 16:00 to 17:00 REGISTER here
Thursday, December 18 from 12:00 to 13:00 REGISTER here
We will offer more dates in the new year, the dates will be posted as soon as we have them scheduled.
Why Should I Attend this Webinar?
- ICT disciplines are finding value in Linux expertise and it is a great complement to networking.
- Linux content can be challenging to teach and learn.
- Hearing from instructors and students who found great success in the small market trial of the course.
- … seeing a demo and being able to ask question and chat with others is always kickstarting ideas.
What Is Special About the New Linux Course?
- The course outline aligns with the LPI.ORG Linux Essentials Certificate.
- The NetSpace learning environment has lessons, quizzes and assessments for high school and college.
- Students use virtual machines, which reduces tech support required.
- Material is aligned chapter by chapter with national education standards (STEM et al).
- Your students will add marketable job skills to their resume.
Looking forward to meeting you
Ana Vujasin, Eugene Morozov, Bogdan Doinea, Jutta Jerlich, Karol Kniewald, Nargiz Omarbekova
I hope that all of the NetRiders have such smiling faces as my Austrian NetRiders from HTL Rennweg in Vienna.
