October Theme - Actualization


To realize in action or make real

from the Free Dictionary

This month I'll be rolling off the ecom team at ADT. I lined up a few projects, each I can contribute to right away, so minimal bench time. As much as I like the idea of bench time to catch up on training, I do not like the reality of not being productive for my company and clients.

I picked the theme "actualization" to drive my activities and decisions to realize something tangible, measurable. October's 3rd wins are based on this theme: new client and great potential, upgrade the AWS team, and demonstrate my proficiency by participating in a panel about privacy data.

3 Wins

  1. New Business - Blessed by clients who have new work and projects, land new business.
  2. AWS Team and Certification Training
  3. Security Presentation and Panel on the OWASP Top 10 Privacy Risks


  1. AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate

  2. AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional

  3. OWASP Top 10 Privacy Risks
