December has arrived, which means that after spending the next couple of weeks working extremely hard to get everything done on time, we all get to spend a few days with the 3 Fs that make life worth living: family, friends, and of course Fortnite! (Pro tip: if you get your family and friends addicted to Fortnite, then you can pretty much enjoy Fortnite, Fornite and nothing but Fornite.)

For this month’s poll question, we want to know: what will you be doing over the holidays? Here are some possibilities that might be on your agenda:

  • Read some books that stimulate your mind. For our list of 10 must-read books for IT pros, click here.
  • Binge-watch a whole bunch of great movies. For our list of recommendations for IT pros (yes, The Matrix is on the list!), click here.
  • Take the trip of a lifetime to an unforgettable location, like Dubrovnik, Croatia – a.k.a. King’s Landing. For our list of the 16 geekiest places in the world to visit, click here.
  • Prepare to get a new and better job in the new year. For tips on how to write a great resume, click here. (Note: the article is geared towards developers, but it applies to all IT pros.)
  • Boost your knowledge by “enrolling” in YouTube University and watching one informative video after another. For our list of YouTube channels that will help you learn and adapt in the IT world, click here.
  • Add to your (massive) inventory of IT tools and apps. For our (also massive) list of IT tools, which was developed alongside feedback from IT pros around the world, click here.
  • Go “old school” and break out some classic board games. For our advice on how to choose the perfect board game, click here.

These are just some of the possible activities that you might have planned over the holidays (and if not, then maybe the above has given you some good ideas!). Now it’s up to you. Please share your plans below, and let us know how you’ll be carrying them out.
