Every manager should be listening to this interview which is packed with useful insights and life experiences. I found the Podcast channel “Developer on Fire” to be a series of interesting conversations that Mr Dave Rael has with his guests from the Software Industry. This week, I listened to the one with Mr Eric Brechner (@ericbrechner),  who is a Software Engineering Manager at Microsoft Corporation and has over three decades of experience in managing software development. Eric is well known by his pen name I.M.Wright and has authored two well-researched books on managing Software Projects and the teams – Hard…

//14th May 2019: San Francisco, long at the heart of the technology revolution, took a stand against potential abuse on Tuesday by banning the use of facial recognition software by the police and other agencies.// The word that came to my mind when I read about the above law (ordinance) was “Hypocrisy”.

It’s become a habit for me to listen to “This week in tech” in early parts of the week and “Windows Weekly” in the latter part of the week. Today while I am at Atlanta attending Microsoft Ignite conference I was surprised to see the hosts of Windows Weekly doing a live show in the connector hall between Building B & C at Georgia World Congress Center.

In last week’s Twit Triangulation podcast I enjoyed listening to Mr.Alan Cooper the father of Visual Basic, whose works I admire a lot. His book on “About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design” has had a profound influence on how I have been designing software solutions for the last 15+ years. The computer industry has been built by numerous talented engineers but it has had only a handful of pioneers like Mr.Cooper who have put the users first when they design their products. Mr.Cooper has long argued against software throwing dialog boxes and displaying error messages. He twists the popular saying “Form…
