FYI: The Top Tech Reads of the Week
At RED Academy, we treat our classrooms like board rooms and students like colleagues. This agency setting helps prep our students for the ‘real world’, giving them real projects with real clients that they can put on their portfolio come graduation time. But as a leading professional, it’s not just about design strategies and marketing plans. It’s also about staying on top of your industry, reading the important headlines, and ensuring you’re staying current with what’s #trending.
Whether scanning the headlines on Twitter or perusing our Facebook newsfeed, the RED Academy team are sharing a few of their favourite quick reads to catch up on. So kick your feet up, grab a latte, and do some much-deserved unplugging.

Sean is our Admissions Director who’s got a lazer focus on making RED an educational paradise with the best and brightest students.

His background in the vibrant tech scene, bundled with his love for education, fuels his massive enthusiasm for bridging the gap between the innovative tech firms who need good people and the students who need fulfilling jobs. On the weekend, Sean can be found sailing around Vancouver with his friends, mentoring young startup founders, playing beer-league sports and cooking up mildly-successful meals.
