🌅 Reach New Horizons with AUTM!

Be prepared to engage, interact, and contribute to the conversation.

AUTM UPDATES Hello there!

This is Isa White. You may recognize me because I appear in practically every video on our YouTube channel, which by the way, I invite you to subscribe to. I'm thrilled to communicate with you through our newsletter because I have some wonderful news to share with you. I'd like to talk to you about the AUTM Learn App and all the opportunities that come with the courses available through it.

AUTMites who have completed our program and landed tech jobs began on this app. They were allowed to pick which cohort they wanted to complete by watching the films on the Home Page and then enrolled in their chosen course. From then, the rest is history.

AUTM's Workforce Development program provides you access to industry-leading content in a format that fits your present lifestyle. According to one AUTMite, "In just a few months, the impact on me has [given] the ability to understand [that] I have a lot more opportunities available to me than I was previously aware of. I'm also looking forward to learning new skills and having a concrete plan of action to follow."

As a major feature of our Workforce Development program, AUTM offers this mobile app to provide the opportunity to explore the field of technology and gain the skills and training necessary to be successful in the tech space.

The AUTM Learn App and Workforce Development Program have been shown to change people's lives. Create your profile now to see how we can change yours!

Isa White, Director of Programming

The Steve Jobs deal with Michael Dell that could have changed Apple and tech history

by Connie Guglielmo

It's been 10 years since the death of Steve Jobs. Michael Dell talks about his memories of the tech icon, including when Jobs tried to convince Dell to license Mac software to run on Intel-based PCs. Fast-forward to 1993. Jobs, ousted from Apple after a fallout with the company's board in 1985, had started a new company, called Next, and created a beautiful (but expensive) workstation, with its own operating system, as well as software called WebObjects for building web-based applications. Dell says Jobs came to his house in Texas several times that year, trying to convince him to use the Next operating system on Dell PCs, by arguing that it was better than Microsoft's Windows software and could undermine the Unix workstation market being touted by Sun Microsystems. The problem, Dell says he told Jobs, was that there were no applications for it and zero customer interest.
