Penton Technology Launches Interactive Professional Education Platform

Penton Technology, a company with media brands including TheWHIR, Data Center Knowledge, Web Hosting Talk and HostingCon, has launched a new interactive Professional Education platform designed to enrich the online and on-demand education experience for technology and channel professionals.

“We’re seeing significant growth in interest in our deep dive, peer-based training at both our conferences and our eLearning classes,” said Rod Trent, Education and Conferences Director for Penton Technology. “That’s why we are creating a professional development ecosystem that capitalizes on learning-focused content at our conferences, on our web sites and forums, and at new on-site learning events we’ll soon be rolling out across the country.”

Additionally, Penton Technology will be delivering several new professional development workshops at upcoming Data Center World and HostingCon conferences.

“It’s an exciting time to cover the computing world.
