As the year is winding down to its final couple of weeks of 2014 before we ring in the new year, it is time again to think about the new year and what things I want to accomplish in terms of IT and PowerShell. Basically I am coming up with my own resolutions for the new year that aren’t related to the usual “go visit this city” or “hit the gym more” type of things. Those are fine but I am more interested in the professional side of the house and things that I would like to accomplish.
Over the past year I was fortunate enough to be re-awarded the Microsoft MVP for Windows PowerShell, continued to write more PowerShell articles in my blog, did some guest spots on Hey, Scripting Guy! and even took a part time gig writing for MCPMag.com. Besides that, I broke out of my speaking shell to speak at NorCal PowerShell Users Group as well as for Philly Posh (both of which were amazing opportunities). I also helped to co-found and co-lead a local PowerShell user group here in Omaha.
This year I wanted to at least look at a couple of things which I want to do, but for one reason or another I just never found the time to accomplish. I figured that those items were make for a great resolution for the New Year. There are some things that I would have like to do more of or hope to continue to do again in 2015 so those will be added again as a reminder to myself of what I would like to do.
So with that, here are a few things (in no particular order) that I am looking to accomplish in 2015 as my PowerShell Resolutions:
- Learn more about Desired State Configuration (DSC)
- Speak at a local conference (SQL Saturday, InfoTech, Nebraska.Code(), etc…)
- Continue to speak at User groups (at least 2 this year)
- Develop a new project for 2015 (I actually have mine for 2014 published, but haven’t gone ‘public’ with it just yet)
These are things that I hope to do and there are other things that I am looking to do but I decided to limit myself to 4 things here. With that, I am interested to hear what you would like to do with PowerShell in 2015 be it learning something new about it or maybe working on some project in the new year.
