To-do for 2016

As an IT worker, I have to re-learn my position every 3 years. This is due to the fact that Microsoft releases a new version (of their Server software, Exchange, office suite, etc.), or there has been a technology shift from one Linux specialty to another.

To combat this change and to stay ahead of the technology bubble, I have to be self-motivated to be on the front-end. Here is what I have scheduled for 2016:
