10 Goals of 2009
Below are my ten professional-goals for 2009.
- Enhance Testing Procedures – First I need to design the test. Now it is being done in my head with no documentation. Test in excess.
- Do the Research – As soon as I discover something I need to ask or tell someone then the item is discovered to be not correct. Simple do the research first then discuss it.
- Get a Better Understanding of the Business – Find how and why things are done.
- Talk to People – Talk to the people that use our software and understand how this work. Develop a relationship where communication is entourage and they are not timid to ask questions or give comments.
- Integrate Bug Tracking into our Web Pages – Give out the bug tracking site address on our websites. This will allow people to report bugs quickly and allow reporting bugs not to feel like a nuisance.
- Learn Ruby On Rails – Learning new technologies is always good.
- Improve my StackOverFlow Reputation – This will help me become more knowledgeable, improve communication skills (writing and portraying ideas), and be part of a software community.
- Finish Two Computer Books – One book will be Code Complete and the other will probably be Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software.
- Enhance Coding Standards and Practices – Learn, try, and use new and better coding standards and practices. Such as naming conventions, development procedures, and testing.
- Think Outside the Box – Think of ways to solve problems that are not typical, but are effective and efficient
I think that all of these goals are obtainable and should help be become a better professional.
