Certifications

So, I’ve been working at North Georgia College & State University about a year and a half. It’s been great fun and hard work. In that time, I’ve done the popular thing in the IT industry – I’ve gotten certs (certifications). I figured I’d talk about a couple of them since my email signature looks silly because of them.

The Day the Music Died

I wanted to use “So Long and Thanks for All the Fish,” but didn’t want to copy Shane Ross at lfdh.net. It’s a sad time for video editors. The Final Cut Pro (FCP) line has died (as we know it – more on that later). For those who don’t know, Final Cut Pro has become the industry-standard program for video editing. A short sampling of movies edited with it include Cold Mountain, 300, The Corpse Bride, Enchanted, Eat Pray Love, True Grit, and The Social Network. As you can see, it has quite an impressive resume.
