I'll close out 2009 with an update on the goals I set at the beginning of this year and things that I've accomplished. Call it a bit of shameless self promotion, but this is my blog after all. :-)
- Powershell. Although I dropped using the command prompt in favor of a Powershell prompt, I really haven't done anything significant with Powershell this year. I fell short on this one for sure.
- More about DMVs. I've written several DMV queries that have become part of my toolbelt and gave a presentation about DMVs at SQL Saturday Orlando in October. I met this goal, but there's plenty more for me to learn.
- SQL 2008. I've deployed a handful of SQL 2008 instances to my company's production environment and picked up plenty of tidbits here and there from blogs, articles, etc.. I'd say I met this goal.
- Analysis Services. I took an online class with Brian Knight in the fall and have dabbled a little bit with SSAS, but I wouldn't say I've done anything significant enough to consider this goal met.
Final count – 4.5 out of 8. Not bad but always room for improvement.
I hope that you had a great 2009 and look forward to an even better year in 2010!
