Techopedia - The IT Education Site
Techopedia? is your go-to tech source for professional IT insight and inspiration, plus we tirelessly feed anyone who is proud to be called a "geek" with the informational and entertaining content they need.
From defining complex tech jargon in our dictionary, to exploring the latest trends in our articles or providing in-depth coverage of a topic in our tutorials, our goal is to help you better understand technology and — we hope — make better decisions as a result.
We aim to be a site that isn't trying to be the first to break news stories, but instead is your first resource for thoughtful pieces that provide actionable advice. And we feel there is a place for a site that aims to educate IT pros about the technologies affecting their marketplace.
We educate by seeking out experts from a wide variety of IT-related backgrounds: Bloggers, professional journalists, programmers, network admins, consultants, CIOs and other IT professionals who are actually working in the trenches. In fact, we think it's their direct experience that helps them produce high-quality content.

Techopedia? is a family affair. It was started by the father-and-son team of Dale and Cory Janssen.
Dale Janssen - Co-founder Janalta Interactive Inc.
In this capacity, he was a Certified Microsoft Instructor, Master Certified Novell Instructor, MCSE, CNA, CNE, MCSE and a whole bunch of other letters too. During this time, he won a series of industry awards, including one for the top training company in North America.
Dale started and developed one of the first Gold Novell Authorized companies in Canada and branched out in technical training. This training company expanded across Canada and was eventually sold to Executrain of Canada, which in turn was absorbed by CDI College in Canada.
During this time Dale sat on several Novell and Microsoft Advisory Boards and watched the advent of Certification Training on the Internet. He purchased and developed one of the largest certification websites on the Internet, Cramsession.com and eventually sold it to BrainBuzz of Tampa, Florida.
Since that time, he has started, developed, managed and flipped several popular web properties.
