Other Educational Opportunities

Coordinated through the Analyst Training Program, weekly FYI Sessions offer campus developers at all levels an opportunity to learn what is going on with services and technology on campus. Although primarily focused on developers who work with the administrative systems and UT Direct in some way, Web developers and programmers who interact with central systems will also find sessions of interest. Sessions are announced weekly on the IT-Updates mailing list.

The state of Texas offers numerous resources for training, sometimes at low or no cost to state employees. Please consult their Web sites for details.
