'Twas five nights before the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a certification was stirring, not even a GMOB. (Does "GMOB" rhyme with "house?") So much for our notions of seasonal versification. Let's cut straight to the chase: CertMag's posting schedule will be a bit slimmer next week than usual.
We aren't simply going to walk away from the site and leave it on autopilot. We're just going to be putting up slightly fewer items of original content, and doing it one or two days that are different from the norm. Let's face it, every hard-working IT professionals take time off at Christmas. We'll miss you, you'll miss us — but mostly we'll probably both be thinking about other things.
One of the other things that's on our mind, incidentally: We're currently working overtime (literally) to get our first print edition of 2018 off to the publisher. Our January issue is the big Salary Survey magazine that everyone loves. And now would be a great time to subscribe to the print or digital edition.
Getting back to the topic of the day, however, let's quickly run through our holiday posting schedule. Here's what you can expect to find on CertMag during the Christmas and New Year's Day break:
