Your Mid-Week Microsoft Fix

Welcome to the first mid-week of November. That’s right it is November, before we know it the new year will be upon us. If your company is anything like some of my clients, things really begin to slow down as people are in and out using up their vacation time or sick. Which means project work might not move as quickly as the rest of the year, and provides an excellent period of time to learn about some of the latest technologies as well as to polish our knowledge on already familiar technologies.

With this in mind readers, I would like to make a deal with you, to take some time to learn something new or extend our knowledge between now and January 1, 2011. (Life coaches say the best way to achieve goals is when someone is holding you accountable.)

My goal is to pass Exam 70-667 – Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Configuring (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-667&locale=en-us). Leave in the comments what your goal is. Maybe it is to read that book on design patterns, pass a certification exam, attend/view some training, or something else.

To give you some thoughts as to what to learn here is this weeks broadcaster links.
