Cutting Down On Research And Studying

I’ve decided to cut down on the amount of new technology research and studying I’m doing. It is getting to be too time-consuming and scattered. I need to focus more on doing billable work. In particular, I am not going to spend any more time on security. I was getting too in-depth on SQL injection methods and venturing into Python and PHP because hackers tend to use those languages.

I’m going to cut down on CSS studying. I’ve learned a great deal more about CSS but it can get very involved when you factor in all the browser implementations. I’ll probably still pick up a few tips and tricks occasionally. I shall also spend less time exploring web design but I’ll keep my eyes open for any graphics element that looks cool.

As far as research goes, I will not jump on ASP.NET 3.5, Visual Studio 2008, or Silverlight. I’m still mastering ASP.NET 2.0 so I don’t want to confuse myself with another version. I think Microsoft is going a little crazy with their pace of development because they are planning a model view controller (MVC) framework for ASP.NET and so many other new features that nobody will be able to keep up with it. They just keep piling on the complexity.

However, I will continue to concentrate on the following technology; After Effects because I’ve already invested a lot of time in mastering it, ASP.NET 2.0 because I have many books to read, AJAX again because I have several books on AJAX.
