Welcome to my corner of the web, where I keep notes on the business of developing software based solutions that collect data and turn it into intuitively actionable information.

IT Sections

The IT section covers the whole process of Application Development, among other topics.

The Glossary is an organised entry point to notes on industry technologies, protocols and products, and business terms one hears.


To take your time going over a presentation I have given, view it again on the Presentations page.
