It has been two months since I posted my resolution for 2013, you can find that post here: Ah yes, those pesky resolutions. Today I decided to take a look at how I am doing two months into the year.
Read more technical books
I only read one technical book so far, this book is
The Well-Grounded Java Developer: Vital techniques of Java 7 and polyglot programming. I have reviewed the book here: Review of The Well-Grounded Java Developer. In a couple of weeks I will have the opportunity (some people will call it a misfortune, misfortune being the commute not the reading part) to read a lot more since I will be commuting 2 hours a day on the lovely NJ Transit Northeast Corridor train.
Depending what happens in the next couple of weeks the technology stack is not yet certain for me, this is why I have not purchased any books yet, I hope to have this sorted out by April 1st.
Get into different technologies
As you might have noticed I did a bunch of posts about technologies besides SQL Server, I did a couple of Oracle posts as well as a couple of Scala posts. I also did a bunch of posts about MongoDB, as a matter of fact I blogged 15 times about MongoDB, you can find the MongoDB posts below
Write more blog posts and contribute more to the wiki
I think that I did really well here, I wrote 47 posts so far this year, this is more than half of all the posts that I wrote in 2012. I said my goal was to blog 150 times this year, I am almost 30% done with that goal. I actually decided to bring my total posts to 750, this means I still have to write 198 posts this year to hit that goal. We will see if I make it or not. Here is where you can find all the posts I have written broken down by year: /index.php/All/?disp=authdiryearly&author=4
I am not checking up on the other goals because I have not done anything about them yet
