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.

Optimists are not wrong

Bar the fact that dropping mortality and equal fornication rates are causing an era of extinction, sure:

Stupid

It's the stupid, stupid.

(when the person you're talking to won't understand the explanation anyway).

it’s harder to be kind than clever

«The choice to be kind can be hard, especially when you’re frustrated or when, thanks to your gifts, you know that someone has made the sort of error you could easily have avoided. It’s easier to be direct; to not concern yourself too heavily with the emotions of others; to want to be unequivocal in your rejection.»

Objective. I have to become kinder in the next 6 months. I'm going to need help. A lot of it.

JSON
And that's the other thing: as a human-readable file format, JSON is better than XML, but it's worse than almost everything else. It doesn't even allow comments! It's an accidental format, absent-mindedly unleashed upon the world by a JavaScript developer who worked out a way to turn objects into strings that could be turned back into object using the built-in eval function. And then it turned out you shouldn't do that anyway, because security. The only reason it's become so popular as a configuration format is Node.js, which speaks JSON natively.
