While the beginning of every year is a great time to set new goals for yourself, the truth is you can do it anytime.  For many, a key 2018 goal is starting their journey to becoming an IT architect.  I know how daunting this can seem at the time, so my goal for 2018 is to help get you started on your IT architect journey.

What is an IT Architect Journey Anyway?

If you speak to almost any IT architect about their experience along the way, chances are they will all give you a very similar piece of advice:

Enjoy the journey.

That is because we all understand it has been a long path to get to where we are today.  The IT architect journey is a marathon, not a sprint.  Because it takes such a long time to complete, many find it hard to get started.

The IT architect journey is a journey of learning, knowledge, and growth.  Many times it is also a journey of self discovery.  My goal for 2018 is to help those on their journey gain both soft skills and technical IT skills.

You can look forward to the following free resources coming in 2018:

  • Free eBooks
  • Blog posts
  • Podcasts
  • Videos

Of course, there is also the IT Architect Series: The Journey book which is meant to be a practical guide for anyone interested in IT architecture.
