About the content

I’m using this blog to share my learning – so that over time it builds into a record of learning that I can refer back to. I’m tagging it so that it can potentially be useful to other people!

I use the following simple format to capture all my learning:

* What it was (description of the learning)
* What I learned (the key point I took away)
* What I will aim to do differently as a result (if possible)

I appreciate that some courses (etc) can contain copyright information (and it isn’t always obvious what is / is not protected at the time) so if you think I’ve inadvertently reproduced something without sufficient permission or attribution, please contact me and I’ll happily take it down.

The lessons I capture from talks (etc.) are absolutely not intended to be direct quotes from the individuals giving the talks – instead they are a summary of what I learned.

I’m trying to date the blog posts with the date of the learning, not the date I published the blog post. This is why the publication date of an entry typically won’t match the date that the learning occurred.
