The latest edition of the V3 Tablet App is now available to download. This issue focuses on the importance of IT education in light of ongoing work by the government to overhaul the teaching of technology in schools.
It is also timed for the annual back to school month of September, a period of life we all remember well, if not necessarily with fondness. We’ve spoken to teachers and industry heavyweights from firms such as Microsoft, Adobe and Raspberry Pi for their views on the state of IT teaching and the plans for the overhaul.
This is also a cause close to V3's heart, with our Make IT Better campaign calling for improvements in IT teaching across the UK to ensure we avert a looming skills crisis.
The importance of highly skilled IT workers for the future was neatly summarised in our interview with the CEO and CTO of the Lotus Formula 1 team, who talked about the huge challenge of managing the system required for a race season. Not only this, but more data than ever before is collected that requires analysing and understanding to help prepare for the next race.
Elsewhere in the app, V3 reporters Alastair Stevenson and Michael Passingham consider recent developments in the security and startup sectors respectively, while our news roundup looks at another busy month of major announcements that shook the industry.
There's also the usual irreverent take on the month’s theme from our maverick CEO guest columnist, while the big picture feature is a delicious piece of chocolate and tech goodness combined.
