What I do
Hint: I’m more than a software developer
Software delivery is hard. There are many tiny details that need to be considered, technologies to master, and business cases to learn. Delivering working software is a huge challenge.
It’s also expensive. A small software development team (2 good developers and a project manager) can easily cost $250,000/year.
Finally, it’s risky. Studies have shown that most project are 6 to 12 months behind schedule and 50 to 100% over budget.
We try to deliver software:
- With high quality
- On budget
- On time
I present topics and give talks to help developers and Agile Managers hit those goals.
This site serves as an information resource for .NET Developers and Agile Managers to get a glimpse into how I work in my capacity as an SDLC auditor. This serves as a starting point for further conversation.
On the .NET Developer side, I focus on two topics:
- Staying on track
- Keeping the quality high
- Working with management
On the Agile Management side:
- Be efficient (or ruthless)
- Measure and adjust
There are also some fun articles on the .NET Micro Framework and embedded hardware programming. It’s a side hobby of mine and I love sharing what I’ve learned.
This is an excellent book for anyone (developer or user) who needs to learn the full benefits of your Office365 subscription.
I just migrated a client of 30 users from hosted exchange to Office365. This is the book I gave to the chief of operations when he asked “what was so great about Office365?” Within a few hours he was running team sites and some basic workflows.
It’s a tremendous reference with many step-by-step guides and in-depth details.
For developers, this is a great introduction on Office365 development. In addition, it give a good overview of how to write custom code to interact with your Office365 applications.
