Sometimes It's the Journey, Not the Destination


Recently, I read Dr. AnnMaria De Mars' blog post "Translating Ruby to SAS (or vice versa)." I found that I really liked it, and not just because she mentions me (although that was pretty cool). But rather, I like the end of the post, where she identifies a key value of certification: The preparation process exposes you to new programming methods that you may not have considered before. Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.
