2009 goal review – spring equinox

At the start of the year I published my goals for 2009. Rather than just treat it like a new year’s resolution and ignore it until the following year, I decided to review those goals quarterly.

Complete 25 of the Project Euler problems.
I decided to start using Python to tackle some of these, and managed to get a few more done, taking my total to 33. Haven’t done anything on this for a while. The next Project Euler milestone is when you complete 50. I’m not sure I’ll manage that, but maybe I’ll revise this goal to try and complete 40.

Get a Master ranking in Experts Exchange for at least one other zone.
I’ve now got Master ranking in Coldfusion Markup Language, ColdFusion Application Server and ColdFusion Studio. I’m almost at the ‘Guru’ level for the Coldfusion Markup Language.
New goal: get one more Master ranking, and improve both Coldfusion Markup Language and ColdFusion Application Server to Guru level.

Join the gym.
No progress.

Blog at least once a week on average. I’d also like to do more Coldfusion-related blog posts.
I’ve made 36 posts this year, five of which are about ColdFusion.

Get involved in something open source.
I submitted a few minor issues to a handful of projects on RIAForge.org, and submitted a suggestion for the VarScoper tool to its author.

Start using some kind of source control.
No progress.

Install and start using Railo.
No progress.

Start using MySQL.
No progress.
