What to expect from Splunk .conf2016.
Known for its (arguably) superb geek t-shirts and its (arguably somewhat) cheeky company name, Splunk now makes the final preparations for its Splunk .conf2016 event in Orlando at #splunkconf16. Now the seventh annual outing for Splunk, this event is designed to showcase the firm’s technology, which is dedicated to providing real time ‘operational intelligence’ (i.e. search, monitoring and analytics functions) from machine-generated big data v...

Post-Agile Stress Disorder.
I attended and spoke at the first run of Music City Agile last Wednesday. Music City Agile is a one day conference themed around, your guessed it, agile software development. A sister conference, Music City Code ran the following Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Jim Benson ran the opening keynote on Post-Agile Stress Disorder (PAST). Jim presented what seems to be a more common theme: consultants arrive at a new gig and present a set of tools and p...

What to expect from Veritas Vision 2016.
Information management company Veritas holds its Veritas Vision 2016 conference (hashtag #vtasvision) on September 12-14, 2016 at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas... so what can we expect? After all, September (and October) is core tech conference season meltdown. Technology firms clash for dates, hotel rooms and rock stars as they attempt to bring together what today (for most vendors and certainly for Veritas) is more than just a conf...

"Probably the most important lesson I’ve learned is to be aware of how one strategy for vetting new employees might fail, and have a few backups." - Justin Rohrman
I was eaves dropping on a conversation about vetting technical skill during an interview in a local Slack channel last week. One person suggested live programming or logic exercises on a white board. Others responded that this is inhumane and rigged against people that need a quiet space without people hovering over their shoulders to respond to this type of challenge. Another person suggested a take home exercise that someone could complete over...

Frame control: The key to moving up the career ladder.
You might remember some of the product announcement keynotes that Steve Jobs delivered at the end of his career. Just as you thought the presentation was over, Steve would say "oh, and just one more thing", and introduce product, like the iPod, iPad, or iPhone. Each of these took a technology that already existed but cumbersome and made it available for the masses. He presented the idea as a new category of device - and held his ground. Steve ...

Denny Cherry explains how to release a page blob lease in Azure.
Sometimes when firing up VMs or moving VMs from the page or blob store you'll get an error that there is still a lease on the file. To solve this you need to release the lease. But waiting won't do the trick, as the leases don't have an expiration date. I found some VB.NET code online that with some tweaking (with the help of Eli Weinstock-Herman and Christiaan Baes) I was able to get to release the lease. The first thing you'll need is Vi...

Agile Godzilla roars, Blueprint Storyteller for Jira.
