Microsoft Teams seems like it’s trying to be the one-stop tool for all your organisational needs. I think it works fine for chat and calls, but for knowledge management it is extremely unimpressive, often making things much harder than they need to be. Here’s four ways Teams is killing your knowledge management.
I’m trying to get a little more structured when it comes to how I publish and syndicate the content I write. These are primarily my notes to myself about my process, but maybe you’ll find them interesting.
When I was first introduced to Observables in C#, they sounded pretty damn good. “They just model streams of data”, “It’s just data over time” and “It’s just the push equivalent of an IEnumerable”. After working with them for a little while, I don’t think they’re as good as I was told.
At my employer SCADA MINDS we’re currently working on implementing a data pipeline for one of the larger wind companies in the world. Wind turbines have a lot of sensors, that generate a lot of time-series data. For the amount of turbines we need to support, we need to be able to process upwards of 1GB/sec.
Recently while pair programming with a colleague, we got into discussing the best way to initialize new objects in C#. I’ve always just implemented constructors and left it at that, while he tended to favour static factory methods. This led to a lot of discussion and back-and-forth about the pros and cons of each type.
Internally at SCADA MINDS, we’ve had to make a decision whether or not to use a Serverless architecture for a large project. I wrote a post earlier on the general pros and cons of Serverless, but like most projects, there are some unique circumstances that we need to consider.
Internally at SCADA MINDS, we’ve had a lot of discussion whether or not to use serverless, Azure functions to be more specific, for a large project. This is my attempt to give a balanced overview of the pros and cons of Serverless, to help us make the right decision.
About a year ago I started having pain in my left pinky. At the time I was a student, and had just helped start bambuu where I develop software. I figured the pain was temporary so I kept on working, thinking it’d go away by itself. This would be a very short blog post if I was right. After while it had spread to my right pinky as well.
Recently we created a placemat game-controller and a game for a university project. The goal was to help users eat slower in an engaging way. These are the four things I wish I had known before starting.
I recently read Malcolm Gladwell’s book “David and Goliath – Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants.” Gladwell writes about a phenomenon called relative deprivation – when we are deprived of something, relative to the people around us. I’m going to talk a little about this phenomenon, and how it relates to keeping the big picture of the world in mind.
