Career Planning: Disaster Recovery

One of the more important things that you have to remember is that you should always be ready for failure. As developers, we are used to thinking about stuff like that in our code, but this is true for real life as well.

In every project plan there is a stage when functional tasks are extrapolated from the customer requirements. In practice, the more capable you are of identifying tasks and the work they entail, the better you'll be able to follow the project schedule.

Sketching API Connections

Any of these solutions could be appropriate depending on the complexity of the API set you are trying to represent. I'd suggest starting with a simple representation (i.e. fully labeled connections) and moving to a more complex one if needed BUT remember to use a key to explain any elements you use!

How well does sample range estimate range?

I’ve been doing some work with Focused Objective lately, and today the following question came up in our discussion. If you’re sampling from a uniform distribution, how many samples do you need before your sample range has an even chance of covering 90% of the population range?

Engineering Joke of the Week: The Tunnel

I’m a believer that engineers not only need to act in a professional and ethical way, but they have to have a sense of humor too. For that reason I have the tradition to tell my class (almost) every semester week a joke or fun story with an engineering background. I have been asked to share the fun story from this week, so here we go...
