Obligatory Looking Back on 2011 Post

I figured I would join in on the fun.

2011 was a very different year for me both professionally and personally. Professionally it was the first full year I have had at my current job. That’s awesome because this is my first “big boy” professional job that I have actually really really enjoyed. I get to work with great technology and great people, even though my boss is a dick(he’s a good friend from college). This was also my first full year with both VMware and Powershell and I have loved every minute of it. In March, I got my VCP4 cert for VMware which was a very fun and interesting experience.

On the personal side I started this blog in February of 2011 which is a completely new experience for me. I have never owned my own domain before this one, and never had a blog or site of any kind before this. It has been a learning experience to say the least. Although there was a while where I was not posting as often as I should, I really found my routine in November and have been able to put atleast one post out a week.

My most popular article so far has actually been one of my first ones regarding understanding memory usage and statistics inside of the VM. Found Here. That either tells me that I am going under appreciated, or I am not achieving the same quality of article as that one. My vote would probably be the latter.

What does 2012 bring for the vNoob? I am glad you asked.

What I want to accomplish most of all in 2012 is to just LEARN. Its soo crazy to me that the more I learn in both Powershell and VMware, I realize that there is even more that I don’t know. I hope to be getting my VCP5 shortly. I also hope to get in on the Powershell Verified stuff that Don Jones has been working on. I also have been wanting to learn Spanish for I don’t know how long, so hopefully I can finally make some good headway on that one. Putting it on here might add some accountability for me to actually do it as well.

I had aspirations of becoming a vExpert, but I think I have way too much to learn before I can do that, but we will see.

That’s what I got, What are you up to?!
