The development of Information Technology (IT) in every aspect has been very fast. IT has also changed and influenced many, if not all, parts of our lives. The rapid development of IT requires that many tools and methods used in developing applications must also adapt. One such tool is the Software Development Life Cycle method, which has since evolved to cater to the requirements of application development.

Therefore, the Information Technology department helped to equip its students with the latest knowledge and skills required for their future career through a guest lecture with the topic of “Virtual Private Server (VPS) Configuration for Web Hosting”. The guest lecture was delivered by Randy Anthony, S.Kom, M.Kom., COO at PT Republik Media Kreatif, who is one of SGU’s part time lecturers and also an alumnus of the IT department.

Hopefully, through the guest lecture that was conducted in three sessions (held on 29 April, 6 May, and 13 May 2019) for the second semester students, the Information Technology department furnished the students with the requisite knowledge and skills related to the latest updates in web development, especially in Virtual Private Server (VPS) configuration for web hosting.
