Goal List

I attended JP Boodhoo's .Net boot camp in April and I am finally getting around to making a list of goals. I have always had I pseudo list, but it has always been in my head and never down on paper. Not writing them down has allowed me to veer off course, so I thought with my first blog post I would start by writing down my goals for the next year. At least this will allow me to look back over the past year to see how I have done.

Read the following books:
1. Head First Design Patterns
2. xUnit Testing Patterns
3. Domain-Driven Design : Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software
4. Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture
5. Domain Driven Design Quickly (got a free e-Book on the Internet)
6. NHibernate in Action
7. C# in Depth: What you need to master C# 2 and 3

Do the following Technical Things:
1. Write an article on codeproject
2. Present to Little Rock .Net User Group
3. Get Started on my side project
4. Start getting Microsoft Certifications

Do the following non Technical Things:
1. Run at least 2 miles 3-4 times a week
2. Hike at least half of the Ouachita Trail
