Is it too late for new year resolutions? I’d like to keep a record of what I want to do as a programmer this year, so here it goes:
- Learn Python
This is something I have postponed for too long. Python is really interesting and I’d really like to explore more outside the php-mysql-html-css-js world I live in today;
- Learn RegEx properly
I’m tired of looking at
.htaccessfiles and having no idea of what’s happening and why;
- Publish more articles
Just writing them is not good enough, I need to hit that “publish” button more often (once every 60 days seems doable);
- Give a tech presentation
I feel like I need to improve my teaching skills and giving presentations would help me build confidence;
- Contribute to an open source project
I use so much of other people’s work, I feel like I should give back to the community;
Okay, that’s it. I hope I can look back later this year and feel like I moved forward as a professional.
Happy new year!
