Covid compliance forced physical shops to close and accelerated the use of technology to make purchases and communicate. Increased tech use can mean users get lax with their password security and either re-use their passwords or create insecure passwords. Organisations such as Evil Corp (see resources below) exploit thousands of individuals and companies with poor security worldwide yearly, and [...]
If annealing, superposition, and qubits all sound like new Netflix films to you, then I too was in the same position only a week ago, until I fell down the rabbit hole of quantum computing. I spotted a post by Swami Sivasubramanian from AWS on their new machine learning system SageMaker; somehow, after a few clicks found my way [...]
With the likes of Dorthy Perkins and Topshop on the brink of collapse, what can governments do to stimulate spending in the areas which need it the most? One country may have already found the solution. Having a considerable percentage of the population (800 million) already using cashless payments (annually breaching the $500 trillion threshold), and figureheads like Jack [...]
Lockdown 1.0 was a golden opportunity to learn some new skills, move out of comfort zones and into new realms of personal projects. Hedgehogs are the first thing which springs to mind, right? Maybe not, but I decided to set up a Raspberry Pi to capture if the hedgehogs we'd rescued were getting the hedgehog food they were being [...]
"Never ask a question you didn't know the answer too". The first rule I was taught in advocacy at law school. Sometimes it can be one of the biggest allies in getting through meetings, a fact championed by my colleague Jamie Griffiths when we were delivering the incredible Enterprise Product, "Playmaker" at Reading Room. As a project lead, preparation is [...]
During the recent Maxwell Bond Webinar (kindly organised by Riana Butler) on "Agile Project Delivery" I sat as a panellist. There was an impressive turnout and some outstanding questions posed by the attendees. One of the queries revolved around any "gotchas" for setting up agile teams remotely. This piqued my interested as agile and remote working do capture the current [...]
In the last 20 years of delivery I've lost count of the number of times I've heard "No, we don't need to test that, it's just a minor bug", followed closely by the familiar wail of Operational fire engines pulling up to a disaster. It's all too easy to panic and cut corners when a client is on the warpath, [...]
The room erupted in laughter when my colleague accidentally had a double typo in a sprint meeting and wrote “twat” instead of “test”… “I blame the ergonomic keyboard”, was her response. At least the team were paying attention to what she was writing and not mindlessly looking at Instagram on their phones. Worryingly though, none of them were writing anything [...]
The tech ops guys were banging on about CloudFlare again, and I had no idea why. Did Cloudflare sponsor them? Surely it couldn't be that good, right? And anyway it would be super technical and a little bit out of reach for a mere Product Manager? While hurrying to the rain-swept car park after work, I was pondering Cloudflare when I [...]
