[Sticky] What is IT?
IT stands for Information Technology and is defined as "the study or use of systems (especially computers and telecommunications) for storing, retrieving, and sending information". Now that definition is not very helpful but what it means is we, as IT professionals, learn how computers communicate and interact with people and other computer systems. Being an IT professional isn't a very glamorous job but it is interesting, you have to be able to think on your feet and solve problems with limited information. What you learn in training is only a fraction of what you will need in the field and a lot of times you have to learn as you go.
