Tech in Schools Gets a Donation from Digital Ocean Hollie’s Hub for Good!

We are So Excited to Announce Some Great News

Digital Ocean has decided to empower the students and donate to TSI.

What This Does for TSI

This kind of donation is going to help us create new tools for the students in our tech program. Since 2019 we have been on a mission to change how students learned technology. Digital Ocean is further bolstering this fact by supporting us by helping us through their kind donation.

Back when COVID began Digital Ocean gave us $1000 credits on their platform as a donation and that was a game changer.

This enabled us to build without limits. We created Droplet after Droplet to test new software until we were happy with the results then created a Dynamic IP and went for their Storage Optimized Servers. We call the server our “High Powered TSI Apps Machine” and it has gained that nickname for being online 100% of the time and readily available. We migrated to Digital Ocean because of their tremendous support for not for profits, developer tools, reliability, secure web hosting and ease of use.

New Student Software

Our students demand instantaneous collaboration and 100% uptime on the apps they use. Our ever growing library of applications is now over 60+ platforms made for students.

We are continuously updating our student software tools , providing additional new features and capabilities to maximize creativity. Our new software is faster, cross compatible, improvements on UI/UX and overall better student experience. We are always looking to provide more access to tools that empower student creativity and making education and unforgettable experience.

Digital Ocean Cloud Infrastructure

With Digital Ocean’s cloud services, we are able to maintain our infrastructure including all the new student software online 24/7. While servicing over 40 schools in the last few years, reliability and speed has been our top priority when it comes to hosting our online platforms. Digital Ocean allows us to seamlessly scale to adjust to our student base and provide each student with access to over 60 online apps designed to prepare them for a future in technology. Together, we are empowering a future generation of engineers, developers, designers, and entrepreneurs.

One of the biggest challenges our instructors faced in the field is serving students on every platform which includes iPads and Chromebooks. Digital Ocean allowed our infrastructure to expand to those platforms and have different versions of our software, making it more accessible on almost any device. We created special features for touch screen devices and personalized controls for each type of device. With Digital Ocean’s computing resources our students can learn anywhere, any time, and on any device.
