My blog at http://jasonzandri.spaces.live.com/ and the mirror over at From the Mind of Jason Zandri have been a mix up of all the different things that I have an interest in. This ranges from local news and events, my interests in the field of Information Technology, my small efforts at philanthropy and trying to help those that need it most and even some little tidbits about my four kids.
I still like writing about all of these different things but I decided that I would like to concentrate on one of them more often and make the rest really a passive effort so I decided on the one that I just dig the most and that is the Information Technology field – specifically around the ongoing effort that you need to take to stay up to speed on current and emerging technologies in the world of personal computing and client / server networks.
That naturally includes getting certified on the technology or at least knowing so much about it that you could if you wanted to.
I know plenty of people that are certified to the point of being certifiable but they couldn’t CTRL+ALT+DEL their way out of a brown paper bag. At the same time I know many people that don’t have a single certification to their name and they know more about the systems they work on in totality than the developers that wrote the code for them.
I’ve learned a lot about technology in the 12 years I have been in the field through self study and the school of hard knocks and I just decided that I want to write about it.
And thus Certification Prep – The 20 Minute Workout has been born.
