His profile says retired; I think he got there by the long road.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Since we last spoke, I've passed my first MS exam ( a while ago now, the first SQL Server one ), and done a lot of work to learn Angular ( although I don't use it at work ). I'm planning on learning Mongo next, got the book ready, then I want to get good enough at the minutiae of HTML5 to pass THAT MS exam. At the same time, I am vaguely aware of newer C# features that I wish I could find the time to understand more fully. I've used async/await because I have to, and I use dynamic a fair bit, but some of the new stuff where you can pass a code snippet as a method parameter, I would love to really 'get' that, but I don't yet.
During the day I am mostly playing with CRM.
How does everyone else find time to keep up to date ?
I learn a little bit of everything I don't know that seems popular just so I have a general idea of what it is and how it might fit into a project...I only dig deep into it when I need it...there's just too much stuff always coming out to be considered 'expert' at all of it...a lot of it winds up on the trash heap in a few years anyway.
I usually do this learning on weekends and the odd weekday when I don't have any work to do.
