Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery on AWS

The Symphonia

Transforming enterprise integration with reactive streams

O'Reilly Software

In 2003, Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf released their book Enterprise Integration Patterns. Build a more scalable, composable, and functional architecture for interconnecting systems and applications.

The CIO and M&A, Part I

The Agile Manager

One study found that between 2003 and 2009, some 4,600 firms wrote-down goodwill due to impairment, amounting to 20% of total recorded goodwill. "It is hard not to be cynical about this.

Tasktop Viz Limited Release Announced, Flow Metrics Made Easy

Tasktop

In 2003, I left the software industry to work on my PhD in Computer Science. Scientific and technological revolutions have been catalyzed by breakthroughs in measurement.
