Lifelong Learners, It’s Back to School Time

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Summer is officially coming to an end. It’s back to school time. You might be thinking, I’m not a full-time student, so back to school is irrelevant to me. But if you’re a developer, you’re a lifelong learner. And if you’re a lifelong learner, back to school is a reminder and an opportunity. We all have the chance to hit the virtual reset button on our goals over the course of a year: first at the start of the year, then when we reach halfway, and finally now.   

Over the past few months, you may have ventured on holiday with family, embraced the outdoors, indulged in the longer days and enjoyed the warm evenings, and spent more time catching up with friends. But while you’ve been busy with summer extracurriculars, other activities may have taken a backseat. Intentions to learn a new programming language or expand your skills have been postponed. Suddenly the months have passed and learning goals haven’t been met, but that’s okay.

The brain is like a muscle and – like any muscle – overuse is counterproductive. Regardless of age and experience, we all need a break from work and education if we want to be productive. That’s one of the reasons why schools break up the academic year with holidays. To excel with learning, you need to be able to recharge.

Now that the whirlwind of summer is coming to an end, the back to school reminder is the ideal opportunity for us lifelong learners to realign and commit to new learning goals. Make the most of a refreshed mind. Re-engage with your drive to learn. Take on new challenges.

Need some inspiration? Here are a few ideas:

Welcome back to school, lifelong learners! So what are you going to learn?
