- Do more unit testing! Or, more accurately, get better at Test-Driven Development! I already evangelize about this but the more I get into unit testing - and TDD in particular - the more I realize that I still don't do enough and I still have a tendency to shortcut the process and code first, instead of writing tests first.
- Do more Open Source Software development! Yes, even with Fusebox 5.0, Fusebox 5.1, my Closures library and the REST adapter under my belt for 2006 (as well as numerous contributions to other frameworks), this is still an area where I want to be able to do more and keep giving back to the community. 2007 should bring Fusebox 6.0 at least!
- Do more Flex! Having finally gotten around to actually learning Flex for the first time in 2006 and written a few small applications, this is an area I really want to become much more proficient at in 2007.
- Write some Apollo applications! If I do more Flex in 2007, Apollo applications will be a snap but I want to stretch myself by learning enough AJAX to develop hybrid Flex/AJAX applications (like some of the cool stuff Christian Cantrell showed off in that video Mike Chambers made recently).
