Lou will share his experiences and successes running the Center for Advanced Technologies program. The students, ages 16 - 18, of the Network Systems Administrator Program have collaborated on a wide variety of projects using Office 365, SharePoint Online, SharePoint on-premises and other technologies. These innovative solutions continue to improve the school's operational efficiency and promote student achievement.

Lou doesn't touch a cable, install a server or write code for the school's environment unless he really has to. The IT department for the school is run entirely by Lou's students.

His students are developing with professional tools and developing professional skills in a real world environment. Lou's students have gone on to work for Microsoft at Redmond Head Office, Amazon, Google, Apple. Each of his students have said Lou's real-world learning environment was instrumental in giving them the foundation for their skills.

Lou will tell us how the conditions were created that enabled high school students to deliver enterprise quality solutions built on Office 365 and SharePoint that made a real difference to the campus community.
