Azure Skills Navigator (a real one)
I saw this tweet from @msdev: I literally read the first line and thought, Yes! They’re doing that cool thing I’d envisioned a while back. I clicked through to the post. That’s when I saw what I should have seen in the second line of the tweet, “…a ramp-up guide for developers”. Bummer. I mean, […]
GitHub Copilot: A young Jarvis?
I recently watched yet another time travel TV series on Netflix. This time out of South Korea. I forgot the name, so in looking it up I realized that time-travel K-dramas are very much a thing, lol. Anyway, it’s called, “Sisyphus: The Myth”. It comes to mind because the writers of the show were fond […]
Learning to scale.
Tomfoolery. That’s the adjective that bubbled into my mind when I saw this screenshot and understood what it was describing. Admittedly, this was a bit harsh. I mean, someone built this, they took the time to craft a way to deal with the rush of users trying to get their examination results from the Caribbean […]
Exploring the differences between SaaS, PaaS and IaaS
In Cloud Technologies class today, we used both the course outline and the notes from MSFTImagine’s Github repo to talk through the differences in service offering. I used the canonical service model responsibility chart to start the conversation off. It’s fairly straightforward to talk to these divisions, of course. I often use it to drive home […]

Teaching Cloud Technologies (2016/2017)
We just concluded another run of the Cloud Technologies course at the University of the West Indies. This course is part of the MSc Computer Science program. As lecturer, I had to come up with the course outline as well as the content. In so doing, I get the opportunity to refresh what we talk […]
I’m lecturing at the University of the West Indies this year. I’ll be teaching the MSc. course in Cloud Technologies. This year, I’ll be working along with Alysia Huggins. She’ll be bringing expertise in distributed systems to the course, but not just that, some very cool approaches. We’re looking to have more interaction from professionals, […]
Last year, I taught three courses. Intro to Mobile Applications Software Engineering Cloud Technologies I hadn’t done any lecturing for a while, and the opportunities came around fairly suddenly, but it was good to be back in class and sharing experiences. Mobile Apps & Software Engineering were taught at the University of Trinidad & Tobago. […]
