The following blog post summarizes my reasoning on how to deliver solutions that provide digitalization and how to stay secure and stay the course. My reasoning is mostly influenced by the Hyppönen Law, and by the latest trends in the software development world. The most important thing about security and digitalization is that they have to be aligned. Additionally, it is a continuous process and not a one-time checklist.
NDC Oslo 2021 is over. Amazing three days with significant information overload. First of all, congrats to the organization @NDC_Conferences. Another special edition of NDC. My way to evaluate a conference is by the speakers and topics selection. All my expectations came true. Very often, I was not sure which session to visit, so many hard choices 😊
Before the conference, I planned one blog post to wrap up my NDC Oslo 2021 impressions. However, I decided to have several shorter blog posts with the information overload I got on the first day. Even though I had my selection of sessions that I planned to visit, I still made a couple of ad-hoc changes since I could not decide which session was better. Though I have to be honest, I made a couple of bad selections as well.
Yes, it’s conference time. After two years of online meetings, workshops, brainstorming & roadmap sessions, endless webinars, now it’s time for an in-person conference. Next week I’m visiting NDC Oslo 2021, one of the best conferences in Europe. NDC is famous for its wide but refined selection of speakers and topics that is attractive even for the pickiest developers. Based on the conference agenda and the speaker selection, I can detect certain trends next year. Here are my favorites.
“The Journey Of Your Data! From Your Sensors To Your Dashboards!” is the title of the talk I gave at the last industry-science meetup organized by the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) and Energy Valley. The meetup aimed to create an arena where regional high-tech industry players from the energy and engineering sector can meet and interact with strategic research initiatives, interdisciplinary research, and science groups from USN. Since the goal of the meetup was to show results from applying the latest state-of-art research in solving real industry problems, we have decided to give a technology introduction to Qlarm. My talk was a high-level journey on making the most important architectural design decisions that one must make while designing a solution like Qlarm.
One of the facts that makes Nebb software products successful is that they are designed and developed in an agile fashion. The agile approach implies regular product (re) inception sessions, where we validate our software products on the latest changes on the market and the end-user feedback.
A couple of weeks ago, I had a great opportunity to visit NDC Oslo 2017. NDC stands for Norwegian Developers Conference and is one of Europe`s largest conferences for .NET & Agile development. The first conference was held in Oslo in 2008 and today NDC Conferences are 5-day events with 2 days of pre-conference workshops and 3 days of conference sessions and are being held in Oslo, London, Sydney, and Copenhagen. What makes the NDC different is the quality and the quantity of the speakers and the topics it offers. Having this in mind I must say it is always a challenge to select the right sessions or to choose one session over several popular ones.
