Welcome

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.

Presentations

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

Blog

Or simply read the Blogs during my Pomodoro breaks between trying to find solutions to problems under lack of time, budget and your average IT duress.

Blogs

A common twist on Agile

Project Managers around the world are flocking to Agile because it allows them for the first time to stop decorating their projects results with hyperbole, and can honestly say they are adhering to Agile pattern of “Failing Fast”.

They're just not getting past that point (ie, they're turn Agile into… Abject…)

Agile Failure

Names
"If names be not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things. If language be not in accordance with the truth of things, affairs cannot be carried on to success."

Confucious.

A few examples of incorrectly named concepts:

  • Hybrid Cloud (read: Mutant Cloud)
  • Deliver Cloud Hosting Services (when you're not a Cloud Provider yourself, therefore providing what?!)
  • Constructive Meeting (when nothing has been Defined, Decided, or Actioned.
  • Customer Focused, when the services being offered are Back-room/storage room services.
  • Transformation – When nothing is being transformed, just rellocated.
  • Collaborative processes – when you're not consulting the clients, the dominant provider, or even other business groups.
  • etc.
