A New Year

Another year has past and it is time for me to once again make a bunch of resolutions that I will not keep. Last year I put together a book list with the goal of reading one technology book every month. I managed to get through four of them. Of course one of the books on the list did not end up getting published, so I got that going for me.

So with my past performance in mind I am once again setting a goal to read one technology book every month. To help I will be adding a simple reminder to the sidebar so I will see which book I should be reading. Perhaps with the extra accountability I will get through half of the list.

Here is the “official” 2013 list:

  1. Thoughts on Interaction Design, Second Edition
  2. Head First Mobile Web
  3. The Art of Unit Testing: With Examples in .Net
  4. Head First C#, Second Edition
  5. SQL Antipatterns: Avoiding the Pitfalls of Database Programming
  6. Head First jQuery
  7. Head First HTML5 Programming
  8. Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data
  9. SQL and Relational Theory: How to Write Accurate SQL Code
  10. Data Modeling Made Simple: A Practical Guide for Business and IT Professionals, 2nd Edition
  11. Star Schema The Complete Reference
  12. Database Design and Relational Theory: Normal Forms and All That Jazz

Good luck with your resolutions and have a great New Year!
