I've done a poor job lately in keeping my SQLBlog posts synchronized with my professional blog. As a result, you probably haven't seen a column I've been doing on professional development for the database professional called Plays Well With Others. My apologies...
I originally started this series of posts in support of the PASS Professional Development VC, an offering that I recommend you take advantage of. However, some readers had asked that I also post this on my own blog. So if you didn't know about it or don't use the PASS website, you might want to take a look at my articles on professional development.
And if you've never looked at my blog before, you can find lots of my session recordings and slide decks here.
Let me know what you think!
