Packt Publishing “Year in Review” survey

You may have seen Packt Publishing’s Skill Up report earlier this year where over 20,000 IT professionals shared what they thought were the most important skills to learn, which provided valuable insight into the knowledge needed to command the highest salaries in different tech roles.

Packt Publishing is now running a ‘Year in Review’ survey to see if the predictions which were made in July have come true and to discover what IT professionals are planning to learn in 2016.

As a thank you, and to help you Skill Up in whichever way you choose, respondents will receive a discount code allowing you to purchase any Packt eBook or video for just $5.

So wander over and take the survey, you know you want to.

Note: Please use Mozilla Firefox to take the Survey.

#inktober # 30 & 31

Well #inktober is over once again.  And somehow I am short one sketch.  I was keeping track but when I counted them up today,  I discovered I went from 27 to 29.  Whoopsie doodle.

This year didn’t seem to go as smooth as last year.  It seemed harder to find time to sit down and sketch. And the quality of my sketches seemed to be all over the place.

But another year done and a stack of new sketches to look back on,  so all said and done I had fun and will be back to do it again next year.
