Humans are constantly learning new things, without that we would probably still live in caves and hunt animals for leather and food. Who knows if we would be even able to use fire properly. Well I don’t want to talk about evolution here so don’t get scared :).
Learning a new stuff is something that, depending on your job, you need to do on a regular basis, or because you want to have a better chances for promotion or simply because you just want to do it. In my case, I simply wanted to do that so I decided to aim for a Microsoft certification. I’s been already more than a year and half since I finished college, so I thought why not to try to learn something new again (and I also needed to think of a quarterly goal for work :)).
So yay, I’m now certified Microsoft Specialist, but that is probably all there is to it. I learned some new stuff, which I’ll probably won’t be able to use as much as I wanted because in most cases websites need to be compatible with older browsers as well.
