30 Technologies in 30 Days

I have taken a challenge wherein I will learn a new technology every day for a month. The challenge started on 29th October 2013. Below is the list of technologies I have learn and blogged. After my usual office working hours,  I will spend a couple of hours learning a new technology and one hour writing about that. The goal of this activity is to get familiar with a lot of new things happening in the community. My main focus would be on JavaScript and related technologies, but it can be Java or any other technology as well. There will be some technologies on which I might spend multiple days, but I will pick a new topic each time within that technology. Wherever it makes sense, I will try to show how it can work with OpenShift. I am expecting it to be fun and a good learning experience.

    Hello. This looks great. Would you recommend this 30 days training now though? With Javascript dominance on all Web things. However it is very tempting? Are you willing maybe to do something similar but with only Javascript frameworks?

      Hello Markos,
      Most of the topics are still relevant today so people can still learn from them. Though new versions of some have popped up so may be it is time to update. After doing this 30 days series I have been planning to do it again but so far unable to do it because of other commitments. I would love to do focussed like JavaScript 30 days series.
