At the start of new year 2014, when i turn back and see 2013, it seems like it passed with the speed of light. But then this is how it meant to be, as they says “time flies” ….
For me the year starts with some big fireworks display, as Dubai has plan to create a world record of biggest fireworks at new year. It was fun to witness such historic moment, at the same time a little guilt that this enormous amount of money could be used to something more useful.
On a personal side of my Year 2013, i have had a great time with my family. My son turned 2, and i now can understand exactly the meaning of terrible 2 :) He is occupying most of my time, and i love every minute spending with him, no matter how much frustrated i could be due to worldly matters, he brings smile to my face and my source to stay motivated.
Year 2013 was good for me in terms of learning, as Project 2013, online and on-premises versions, was released in this year, and i have got lot of new dimensions of a product to learn.
Working as PPM/EPM specialist is my passion, and i got a chance to work with different aspects of PPM as a tool to help lay down project management methodology for organization. For some reason, i have got more chance to work on reporting part of a product, and i explored in detail the database level of a product. And here i learnt that how rite use of Top-Down and Bottom-Up approaches of reporting can help organizations to see their desired results.
Despite of being occupied with work and personal stuff, i have tried to be on my mark when its about gaining knowledge or information about the world of SharePoint/Project Server. And for this i found twitter as my best friend :) i am following some great people from around the world to learn about fact paced technology evolution. Also with the passage of time technology is really coming to palms of our hands now, and i am relying more on my mobile device to stay connected instead of laptop.
During year 2013, i have also tried to be active through my blog and forums as well. My blog stats reached near to 100,000, and i have got 150+ visitors each day from around the world. So thank you everyone for visiting my blog, and i try to share more during the coming year.
Lets stay connected, keep visiting my blog, leave your comments, and have a great new Year 2014.
