Podcast Series:Real Technologists

In our world today, technology plays an increasingly significant role in shaping our lives. The way we communicate, work, and even entertain ourselves is being revolutionized by tech. Behind every innovation, thereโ€™s a person, a human being with unique experiences, perspectives and challenges. Understanding what shaped their perspective is a real goal.

What does the Journey to the Cloud look like?

I mean what does it really take??

What does the journey to the cloud like when we are discussing application architecture? I had the pleasure of chatting with Richard Simon from the Cloud Therapists. We discussed the reality of mmigrating to cloud and the 4 stages defined in a chart that Richard has developing for a number of years, based on the familiar R’s of migration and customer interactions. You know the R’s right? Rehost, Replatform, Refactor and Rearchitect…you could add Retire and Redesign…

Why though? Because the integration of AI capabilities into our software requires more than traditional DevSecOps. I’ve spent decades architecting software solutions for complex challenges, I’ve learned that pragmatism, integration, and flexibility are paramount. ๐˜…๐—ข๐—ฝ๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ป’๐˜ ๐—ฎ ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ด๐˜†; it’s a transdisciplinary mindset that integrates the ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜€ of DevSecOps, DataOps, and MLOps.

Hello friends, itโ€™s been a long timeโ€ฆโ€™23 was quite a rollercoaster for me personally and professionally. I am so thankful for the support of my network, my family, and my friends.

That said, 2024 will be more exciting, innovative, and possibly dangerous than 2023.
