Learning Sharepoint 2010+ should be on everyone's goals because the entire Microsoft technology is being intertwined with it now.


I tend to agree. This is one I've considered.

I too will be studying hard for the 70-461 exam. I'm also going to learn some .NET.

Goal #1 for me is to find new employment. I think I've done as much as I can for the company here; my presence is literally handled entirely through modifiable automation (which, with our database being a mere 2GB of almost purely static data, was easy to attain). I'm still being paid for my time, but my skills aren't growing here in the slightest beyond what I can read and practice on my workstation instance.

Goal #2 is to take the 70-461 myself before the end of 2013. The one area I'm still rusty at is HA, mostly because I haven't been able to implement it at my current workplace. Definitely going to buy a copy of Developer's Edition and get to that as soon as I can with my home computer, along with throwing all manner of tests at the poor thing :-)

1. Learn Extended Events well enough to where I never need to use Profiler/Trace again. That is, as long as I am working on a SQL Server 2012 instance.
2. Learn PowerShell 3.0 formally and comprehensively instead of the bits and pieces of Microsoft documentation, random blog posts and hacking around that helped me pickup the very small amount of PowerShell 1.0 and 2.0 I have in my toolkit. The end-goal is to make all my T-SQL admin scripts server-aware via PowerShell starting with log shipping and database backups. I just purchased Don Jones' new book so I know what I'll be doing during lunch every day in January.
PS 3. Almost forgot, develop a working knowledge of Analysis Services. It is one of the few areas of SQL Server (that have been included in more than the newest release) that I have not worked with. The new shop (started 3 weeks ago) is said to be ~5% Analysis Services and I have an opportunity to "pick it up as I go, as time allows." It's obviously not front and center on my mind but it is a nice situation to be in...maybe I'll find time in Q2 :-P

Thanks for the post, Steve.

Happy New Year!

It takes a minimal capacity for rational thought to see that the corporate 'free press' is a structurally irrational and biased, and extremely violent, system of elite propaganda.
David Edwards - Media lens

Society has varying and conflicting interests; what is called objectivity is the disguise of one of these interests - that of neutrality. But neutrality is a fiction in an unneutral world. There are victims, there are executioners, and there are bystanders... and the 'objectivity' of the bystander calls for inaction while other heads fall.

My goal is to get my coworker trained up to handle more of the admin stuff on SQL Server. He's already a great developer on the platform but having someone available to fill in for me when I'm on vacation or just otherwise occupied will make us a more productive team. We started on this back in November and since I'm taking vacation early in the new year, it should help show us where we need to concentrate.

Heck, just this morning I was going to modify a replication process and then thought, "Hold on, I'll get him to do this when he's back from vacation next week."


How do you get a co-worker to come up to speed (at least at your own level, if not higher), when they don't want to bother making the effort and there's only the 2 of you?

Quit or take a *LONG* vacation and "accidentally" let your cell battery go flat and forget your charger / drop your cell in the pool / run over your cell with your car / forget your cell at the office on your desk...

Seriously though, that falls into the old "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink" sort of thing. Sadly, I feel the same way about most of the people I work with, they don't want to take the time to learn, they want the answers handed to them on a platter. Many a time I've simply Googled the exact problem they've come to me with, and clicked the link for the answer, with them standing next to me.
