El Dr. Chuck Brown escribe un artículo a manera de reseña de la revista Sonora IT. Se transcribe integro el artículo que prepara para la próxima edición de la Revista de la AITP a salir a finales de Abril de 2013.
In December 2012, I reported on the founding of the Asociación Sonorense de Profesionistas en Tecnologías de Información A.C. (ASPTICS) and their overall goal of sharing technology management insights with AITP.
ASPTICS recently published the first edition of their Association magazine, “Sonora IT – Innovación y Tecnología” – a quarterly publication. This premier edition is 40 pages, packed with Association information, technical articles, and educational opportunities under an overall theme of “The future of the Information Technologies and the role of AITP and ASPTICS.”
Manuel Bernal, ASPTICS President, opens the magazine with an editorial outlining how far – and how fast – their Association has come since last fall. Using their initial vision of uniting the information technology and communications organizations in the state of Sonora, Sr. Bernal describes the multi-faceted approach they are taking to ensure coverage of all facets of IT – from education, to “hard-core” technology, and to leading industry concepts, such as AGILE.
The articles begin at the beginning: the “Start-up Weekend” in Cuidad Obregón, where all participating organizations met to launch ASPTICS. Following that were articles on key subjects – “Why Study for a Career in IT?” – “Professional Ethics” – “Myths About AGILE” – “Statistics on IT Professionals in Sonora” (education, licensing & certifications) – “Five Steps to Outline a Strategic Plan” – “Characteristics of Sonora’s IT Companies” – A Comparison of Five Internet Affiliation Tools (Like Google AdSense) – and as the End Piece, “The Future of Information Technology and AITP’s Role” by Norbert Kubilus, Association Past President.
The entire team at ASPTICS is to be congratulated for such an auspicious start for their new organization. In about six months they have moved from concept to reality! While we are the Norte Americanos, our Latino/Latina IT professionals and students may find many benefits to following ASPTICS on Face Book, where the e-magazine has been posted (http://www.facebook.com/asptics) and on their web site (https://asptics.wordpress.com/)
