PPJWT Countdown Day 0 – “Release the Dogs” Tonight, Today. I have no idea. It’s time let the dogs off the lead. Release the dogs so that they can be free to roam the country park. Having animals as pets is good for the soul. They present unconditional love as long you honour the duty […]

Today, I uploaded to YouTube a long form video (00:25:27 duration). In this long-form video presentation, I discuss my personal choice of why I chose contracting over permanent opportunities in my career. I share my feelings and historic decisions of why I got into contracting, why I found it beneficial and why it can be […]

Recently, I flicked through the faces of all of the presentations titles from Google I/O 2014 videos, I saw only one person who was black. She was from Ethiopia and was talking about a very worthy cause, solving the food shortage in Africa and making the cost of food production cheaper so that everyone could […]

At last, I have the October screencast, as I promised weeks ago whilst in the USA. This is a reprisal of my JavaOne 2013 talk, which was called Test-Driven Development with Java EE 7, Arquillian and Enterprise Containers. The conference id was CON4279. As I reprised this JavaOne talk, I actually then realised that it […]

I arrived back in the UK after a trip to JavaOne and a tour of California. After hugs and kisses from family and dealing with other matter, there was package waiting in the hallway. I finally saw three copies of the Java EE 7 Developer Handbook. This is what crossing the finishing looks like in […]

This is a disturbing post for me, and probably for you.  I am an IT contractor in 2013, at least. It was not always that way, because I worked in long term permanent positions before now. I have said many times before I did not aim to be an IT contractor: it just fell in […]

I remember the year 2010 for the FIFA World Cup Final in South Africa watching the amazing tournament matches on BBC TV. Sadly, 2010 marked end of the JAVAWUG, I stopped leading the Java User Group, because attendance to the monthly talks nosedived in the summer mouths. I had had enough of running a user […]

Prince And The New Generation – Don’t Matter 2 Nite – One of the Purple Man’s very best songs that he has ever written, sung and performed. I remember listening to this sound way back in the 1990s. The first time was during my time beating the recession in the 1990s. There was no Euro. […]

As I write this early in the morning I am really tired on being on the back side of what counts as information technology. Recently a friend asked me to simple two questions. I could not give a satisfactory answer.  The questions were why are you (as in me) not yet a manager of a […]
