"4. Anything else."


Just like in many interviews I've been on ...  they ask "Where Do You See Yourself In 5 Years ?"

I respond: "With or Without Winning The Lottery".


So to eliminate silly interview questions ... I'm hoping to hit the lottery ... and that could activate your #3 ... " Work related changes".

:D

I like your response. 

My intent of asking the question was to know where the profession is headed this new year.

"My intent of asking the question was to know where the profession is headed this new year."

From what I see (I Do Only Contracting) ... is a bigger combination of roles ... Combining Project Management / Project Owner / Business Systems Analysis ... and programming / testing when needed.

More companies are claiming to be Agile ... but I have never seen a 100% Agile project ... there has Always been pre-project work to go on and scope changed along the way (backlog changes).

I'd read some job boards to see what companies are looking for in a Business Analyst ... you would be surprised at some of the silly requirements they want people to have.

I have put a request in to attend 3 days worth of SQL Integration Services training at the local University.  If that falls through then I'll go for the SQL advance development class (about half the cost).  

I also plan on starting to go through web matrix to build front ends.  I find waiting for the development team is so painful and I hate not having the control.  If I could get on those two I would be is really good shape.  

Of course personal goals would consist of eating much better and continue to hike 11 - 15 miles a week.

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...

So you’ve found the perfect time and place to study and you’re ready to finally get some work done. You’ve pulled out your laptop, your textbook, and your notes, and four different highlighters. After five minutes of reading your textbook, you start zoning out and thinking about puppies. Then, you go on Tumblr and look at cut...
