  • How do you keep up with new technologies?
    Its very hard to stay on top of all new technologies, unless you work as a consultant, there is really no motivation from a company to push you in seeking for better technologies. However, what I have found is that you focus an area, you can stay on top of that particular tech, I am focusing right now on Citrix, which lets me focus on what their new products, features and follow on what their roadmap is.

    What are you currently learning and what are you looking to learn next? Mostly Citrix checking their new products
