First Blog

Hello world!

I have been resisting the blogging culture for quite some time now. This is probably because I normally have nothing interesting to say, or I’ve felt that some people like to say too much (and I don’t want to be perceived to be one of those). Today, for the first time, I have felt like I should blog about something, so look out for my second post following soon.

When it comes to technical discussions, I sometimes feel I can contribute, but in my line of work I need to progress much further before I will feel that I am an expert. I compare myself to some of the leaders in my field (Mosha Pasumansky, Christoper Web and Darren Gosbell being my favourites) and I see how far I have to go. Still, I am yet to walk into a job and not add value, so maybe I’m ok at what I do. Given this, I will focus my blogs on general issues around operating as a BI developer and contracting. Hopefully I don’t end up sucking at it 🙂
