By Sunday, September 28, 2014 0 Permalink 0

I nearly lost 10 years worth of data (& I work for a company that sells backup solutions!) NEVER under estimate the importance of having a backup!!!! ... and I don't just mean 1-copy, I had a backup of my data on an external hard-drive but I somehow managed to drop this at the same time ...

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the Technology Leadership Academy ran by everywomen (if you are interested the event info is here). It was great to take a day out to focus specifically on personal development, the day focused on "re-inventing" ourselves, we know that business is changing but we are failing ...

Race Report: London Marathon

My alarm went off at 5:42 (yes you right read that right... those extra 2 minutes made all the difference!), I already had everything prepared so all I had to do was get dressed and of course eat my porridge at stupid o'clock! Arrived at the Bracknell sports centre just after 6:15am and was greeted with ...

All set for the marathon!

I still can't believe that tomorrow I will be running THE London Marathon! I remember watching it on TV as a kid, I remember my very first run where I couldn't even finish a mile, I remember not being able to walk up the stairs through sheer pain of such a short run! I remember ...

I officially started my marathon training at the beginning of Jan; although I am a keen runner I have never ran a full marathon so these past few months have certainly been a challenge for me. With flooding, torrential rain (one time we had to literally climb around some fencing to get through a flood!), ...

Software is disrupting every industry and today is the biggest differentiator! Your sick of hearing about how Netflix disrupted the media industry but ultimately this has been a wake up call for many organizations. We all know and love the traditional software development lifecycles where every couple of years we see a significant update (often difficult for ...

The world of IT is changing

What I love about working in the world of technology is that it is ever changing; it is a never ending learning curve and there is always something new and exciting to learn about - you will never get bored! An interesting observation I've recently had is how graduates perceive IT careers; from discussions I've had it is ...

Marathon Training begins…

Eeeek... the start of 2014 means the start of Marathon training! I'm both excited & nervous! I really enjoy long distance running so the training will be "fun" but you put so much into training for just one day... where it could all go wrong! (Just my luck I will end up with a cold on ...
