This is the part that some might say is just an extension of my resume - going on at length about several technical topics... kind of like Machiavelli writing "The Prince" in the hope of getting back into politics. Although that's not entirely wrong, I don't have any illusions about hordes of recruiters reading these articles? essays? editorials? and then making lots of offers. In fact, a recruiter once advised me to "keep your opinions to yourself until after you're hired". Obviously, I'm ignoring that advice. The theory is that seeing how and what I think gives a better picture of who I am than just a list of stuff I've done. And of course, like every writer, I think that what I write is actually worth reading - regardless of your hiring opportunities. So... welcome to my thoughts on a few IT topics.
Disclaimer - Let me say right up front: Originality Is Not Guaranteed. I typically listen when people are talking and I also like to read. Consequently, I’ve learned much from others - and I really appreciate it; but I often don’t remember who said what. So... If you see something that looks familiar, the lack of attribution was unintentional. Sorry about that. ☹
