Some hard work that I need to pull through!

Aside from my day to day activities in the fields of Unix/Linux and security, I want to ensure that I keep up with relevant and useful skills. I believe that expanding my horizons and keeping up with tech outside of my usual activities is a very useful activity. As the proverbial "big stick" I challenged myself to achieve two professional certifications this year:

  1. Oracle Certified Associate, for Oracle 11. Many of my activities so far have touched on databases, but my current project's the first time that I've had to actually dive into them. I would like to actually know something about the stuff I'm working with, hence I'd like to achieve at least a basic set of Oracle DBA skills. 
  2. Puppet Professional. Puppet's one of the more recent techs that I feel has a huge future. As the saying goes "I want me some of that!". While I have no current need for Puppet, I am keen to soon get started on a Puppet job!

Of course, the year isn't very long anymore, so I'd better get cracking! tags: ,
