As a technology professional, it is important to keep my skills sharp and stay up-to-date on the latest technology. The first step toward that end was finding my dream job. Nevertheless, it’s important to experiment with new things outside of work. Things that I would not normally get a chance to do otherwise. I’m using this post outline a plan of attack over the course of the rest of the year.

How do you approach a large project? (The same way you eat an elephant.)
My mantra is to break it down into smaller parts and methodically work my way through. How you work your way through can vary. If it is something you quickly want feedback on I like to iterate, as with agile project management. If the requirements/goal are more static, waterfall may be the appropriate technique.
