I’ve been at Omnitech Inc for 10 years on March 1, 2017. Before that I did some PHP development in college for the Center for Small Towns which was a great job and learning opportunity. I’ve been very blessed to work Omnitech all these years. I highly respect our owners and my co-workers. They’ve been supportive and taught me a lot. It’s been great to see Omnitech grow in people, culture and knowledge. We’ve come a long ways and there is so much more to learn improve on.
There were several developers that were earning Microsoft Certifications and I decided I could do that as well. I got through the full set of .Net 2.0 tests which lay a solid foundation for my future.
I’ve learned that learning a little often adds up quickly. I spent a lot of lunches studying for certifications or watching Pluralsight videos. I studied for a WPF certification and then I was able to do “real” work using it to create a few applications. Learning MVVM for Silverlight helped me learing KnockoutJS (Who said Silverlight is dead? The ideas live on!). Watching John Papa’s Pluralsight video on KnockoutJs ended up being time well spent. It wasn’t too long after that I was using Knockout in a “real” project.

Be honest, humble and open.
Learning a little consistently over a long time adds up to a lot.
Never stop learning.
Let others teach you new things.
Helping people is usually more important then just focusing on your own task.

Automate all you can (tests, builds, releases)
Remember to focus on life, family and faith. Don’t ignore those for the sake of career or learning technology.
I was going to fill this out more, but you’ll have to look at my blog posts.
