Well, 2010 was definitely an enlightening and quick year. I have made some great strides in my programming knowledge, really stepped it up a notch, I guess… This next year is going to another year of refining my skills, learning new ones and most likely, there will be some time spent looking for my next adventure (i.e. job). Cindy and I set a goal of one year to move up to Washington, but that may have to be put on hold for a while due to our current living situation. Word to the wise: do not buy a place if you are not 200% (yes, 200%) sure you will want to live there for 3 to 5 years. So, I will probably be looking for a new job in SoCal for the time being, unless something drastic happens at my current job (doubting it).
Anyway, my main focus for the next year is to delve further into C#, work on some proof of concept projects and finish reading a reference book or two along the way. It is an amazingly easy to learn language, at least this far, I hope it stays that way when I start doing more advanced development. My extra-curricular goal is to make a real world application that may have potential to be used, abused and ultimately sold. We will see how that turns out when I am sitting here a year from now.
Happy New Year!
