Those of you who notice such things will recognize that my blogging frequency decreased dramatically over the past 5 months, culminating with my lightest month ever in April. It’s for the best reasons: I’ve been insanely busy with a big consulting project and also appeared as an expert witness in a trial that took place in Tyler, TX, at the US Fifth Circuit Court last week. The case is now over, and my consulting project is winding down (and ends on May 21) so I’m announcing that as of today, I’m back on my usual schedule of three times a week from here on out (and back up to 12 blogs monthly).
To those of you who missed me: “Thanks!” To those of you who didn’t, “Thanks, anyway!” And to those of you who could possibly care less: “Please keep up the good work!” I’ll be returning to my normal coverage of certification programs, promotions, and offerings, the IT employment situation, and IT career advice, information, and resources. If anybody’s got any burning questions, post them here, or look up my email on my Website at www.edtittel.com and drop me a line.
In my plans for the next few weeks:
- The short-lived MS Architect level certification is being phased out, in favor of an industry-wide, standards-based credential (and it’s not from MS, either). I’ll visit with the foks behind the program and report on my findings later this week.
- Information Security remains an evergreen area for certification and career development. I’ll be reporting on some new programs and activities in this arena, including several programs that target some new US Government backed or mandated elements.
- Looks at some IT career areas where opportunities abound, with attending information about training, experience, and certification (where applicable).
To one and all: “Thanks! It’s great to be back to a more normal (and I hope less hectic) schedule.”
