(Silver) Bullet Train

There may be no such thing as a silver bullet, but the prospect of a bit of training is still enough to lighten the heart and gladden the eye.

Insights has kindly agreed to send its software developers to a bootcamp for Microsoft Certified Solution Developer training. To accommodate those who have a life, we'll be taking it as two separate weeks of training, rather than all in a oner.

I'm not too disappointed to be breaking it up like that - running from 9 in the morning until 9 at night, it sounds most similar to a ten-day open book exam I took once. I remember that as being quite satisfying to complete, but I did need a break afterwards. It was thirteen years ago too, so maybe my marathon days are over.

Insights has grown over the last couple of years, but it's still not a large, cash-rich company, so this is quite a significant investment in us, and praiseworthy.

Dates yet to be confirmed, but it'll probably be some time during the next two to three months.
