There are two types of individuals in technology: those that are comfortable and those that are challenged by it every day. Since discovering technology as a high schooler, I’m constantly challenged and always excited to continue to learn. In this industry sitting on your laurels puts you behind very quickly.
In 2019 I added certifications in technology for Star2Star VOIP systems and numerous for Connectwise TSP software. Moving forward on some AWS ones but I’m not there yet.
Of course, everything I ever learned is from StackOverflow. 🙂 However, there are other sources of continuing ed where I have active accounts and try to average at least a 1 or 2-hour course a week.

Sometimes nothing is better than talking with peers and getting some relatively quick feedback. I can be found in the following Slack communities:
