I’ve been reflecting back on 2012 and all I can say is
Wow. It’s been quite a year.
I can’t imagine how I fit it all in. I compiled a list of my presentations and talks for the year:
4 – User group meetings
8 – SQL Saturdays
3 – IT Pro events (Not SQL Saturday)
In addition I spoke at SQLRally in May, and was asked to speak at the last minute at the PASS Summit. To top it off, I finished out the year presenting on LinkedIn for the PASS Professional Development Virtual Chapter.
As I previously posted, I left BakerHostetler at the end of November and will be starting with New Horizons Great Lakes on January 2nd 2013. There must have been something in the water about changing jobs because 4 of my close friends changed up as well this year.
2012 marked the first time I was published. I wrote a short article on NoSQL for an ILTA (International Legal Technology Association) white paper. It was a great feeling seeing my words professionally laid out in a real publication.
I didn’t blog as much as I wanted to this year. I’ll make that a goal next year. I also didn’t do as much with Hadoop and NoSQL that I wanted to. I’ll be working on that next year as well.
Happy New Year to you and your families!
