Yesterday I was on one of the panels of the Trinidad and Tobago Big Data Forum 2021. The BDF was run from the Trinidad and Tobago United Nation’s office. It comprised of a series of sessions over the course of two days. The session I was part of was titled “Azure: Platform of Intelligence &… Continue reading Cloud: Free Up Yourself
Stories as building blocks.
We watched in horror as our neighbour’s SUV was pushed down the road by the flood. Having seen this kind of thing on screens before, witnessing it so close was a different matter entirely. There’s an instinct some people have to stick their hand into a burning flame to save a grain of rice. It’s… Continue reading Disaster Recovery
Like most Trinbagonians, I’ve learned to dread going in to any licensing office.

In a recent post I mentioned moderating a table talk at this year’s MSBuild along with Erik Kleefeldt. By design, it’s meant to be like a hallway chat with a bunch of people about tech we’ve been using/playing with/excited about. This hallway was huge. 318 people turned up on Teams to talk about extending it… Continue reading #MSBuild 2021 Table Talk: How it went
Taking a break from an experiment about streams in Teams
I saw that response from Dona Sarkar, who I’m following on Twitter. Since I’ve been following her, from what she shares I could have guessed her response. Dona leads advocacy on Microsoft’s Power Platform, while also running her own fashion house – PrimaDonaStudios. My own first response was, “wow, talk about a horrible take”. Dude’s… Continue reading A quick take on a hot mess
