I wrote a blog post a few weeks ago explaining how I had updated the way my website got published, using a CI Pipeline. I hilariously (at the time) announced that 2020 was the Year of CI, not VDI. Since that time, things have changed. A lot. I’ve spent the best part of four weeks at home along with most of the rest of the world as we all take shelter from the COVID-19 epidemic sweeping the globe.
There’s a lot of things that I’d like to know more about, do more with or just see if I like! Equally, there’s only a certain amount of those that I can realistically achieve or focus upon in any given time. This is a quick list of some of the things that I am looking at or want to look at and why. No doubt it will change over the course of the year, but I just figured that it’d be interesting to look back at the end of this year to see how I get on.
You might have already guessed this, but it was VMUG who put me on to Toastmasters. When VMUG announced that they’d secured a bunch of Toastmasters memberships for members who wanted to improve their speaking skills, I figured that I had nothing to lose. I’d spoken at VMUGs previously and I was a VMUG Leader, soon to join the Board of Directors, so it made sense to me to take steps to improve my oratory skills.
