As children, we learned the phrase, a "rolling stone gathers no moss." We believe that to excel in the development of innovative commercial applications of information technology, we should be like a rolling stone – continuously moving forward over the next three to four decades. From that standpoint, we created our information technology training service to help us keep rolling. We are committed to providing our clients with the cutting edge training and knowledge they need to succeed.

At Rolling Stone, we are dedicated to such people to help them reach their career goals.

Davis is 45 years old. He worked as a Java Lead Developer for a Fortune 500 company for 15 years. Two months ago, he was laid off along with the rest of his team when their department was dissolved. Davis immediately began searching for a suitable new position. The job market in his field is very robust, and he applied for several positions. However, none of the companies even responded to his application. The positions all required skills that Davis does not possess. The rapid advancements in technology mean that Davis’ skills are outdated. Davis has a son and a daughter, both of whom dream of going to college. Davis and his wife, Samantha, want their children to have the best education available, but now that Davis is unemployed, they are worried they might not be able to afford college tuition.
Rolling Stone Technology can help Davis understand that new technological terms and programs are just like old wine in a new bottle. In three to four months, we can help Davis master the new technology skills and reenter his field of 15 years with renewed enthusiasm and confidence.
How? We will not train Davis in 20 different skills needed to make todays applications, that the prospective employer want. We will train Davis in one skill : That is how to use these 20 different skills / tools to make applications.

New skills increase an individual’s marketability and open up new paths of career development.
Rolling Stone Technology uses its expertise to help IT professionals and those wishing to enter the field acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to retain control over their career.
- Market Factors
- Convergence of IT Skills for Solution Development
We all know that there are a million .Net developers, a million Java programmers, and several million database programmers. Then there are the security professionals, system administrators, and application server administrators. These positions require in-depth experience with each domain integrated into the complete application in order to effectively meet the needs of business users. It is critical to understand that while knowledge of individual technologies plays an important role in application development, it is insufficient for the successful deployment of complete applications. The development and successful deployment of a complete application requires a convergence of skills from every level and a mastery of emerging technologies, like SOA standards.
A diverse skill set also provides career insurance. Mastery of multiple platforms and technology helps ensure that you are not vulnerable to the shifting winds of the technology job market. A diverse skill set gives you an edge over your competitors and opens up multiple paths of career growth.
- Our Legacy
The founding members of Rolling Stone Technology has 20 years experience in developing and deploying applications using diverse technologies for a broad range of business domains. We view technology as a means, not as a goal. People who see technology as a goal want to learn the next big tech buzzword, like SOA. In contrast, people who see technology as a means of achieving business goals have a nuanced understanding of how old and new technologies work together and can apply all aspects of technology to building better business applications. In short, those who view technology as a means have an open and unbiased approach that ensures that they do not to get hung up on one piece of technology.
- Current State of Documentation
The current state of vendor documentation and tutorials are either too in-depth or too superficial. There is no easy way to shorten the steep learning curve for any new piece of technology. Rolling Stone Technology provides comprehensive but accessible tutorials on new technology that allows you to understand its use in the real world. A solid understanding of the practical impact of technology will increase your market value.
- Current State of Training
While vendor training is available, it only addresses a single piece of technology. Vendor certifications are available for database technology, languages like Java, and frameworks like Spring Framework and different popular SOA suites. However, only Rolling Stone Technology provides training that focuses on applying this technology to real world solutions.

- Catches Them Young
- Your career is like your car - a vehicle to carry you to your dreams and dreams of the people you love.
Lets conclude by drawing an analogy between your car and your career. If your car breaks down, or has difficulty starting up on a winter morning, you either fix it yourself or go to the car mechanic. He / She takes care of the problems, and the car runs again. You don't replace your entire car. You reuse it. The same concept applies to your career as well. You add new skills , like you add new tires to your car, and it runs again for the next so many miles / years.
