In my previous post, Building a wired pop-up event network, I explained how I designed and deployed a high-throughput wired network in an event space (including suggestions on packing and organization to speed deployment and teardown). In this post, I’ll explain how my team and I created a wireless network to go alongside it. This […]
When I switched career paths from IT to software engineering, there was one downside. I stopped working on computer networks in a professional capacity, which is a topic I’ve always been very passionate about. Fortunately, I’ve been able to work on some exciting networking challenges at my software engineering job. My organization started a biannual […]
I will admit to having a weakness for quality PC peripherals, from mechanical keyboards to 4K monitors and everything in between. I recently decided to take a dive into the Cult of Razer by overhauling my mismatched setup of variously branded bits and unify everything under the 3 snakes. The hardware has been great, although […]

Any user wishing to leverage this extension must do so in Developer Mode; I will not be attempting to re-publish this extension in the future.

This means I’ve bought a truckload of hardware and have been now saddled with the gargantuan task of designing my interactions to my liking. As part of doing this, I decided to take one subset of my hardware — […]
As AT&T and Verizon announce the timeline to sunset their 2G and 3G networks, respectively, LTE is no longer just the overtaking technology looming on the horizon; it’s here. Major providers have announced their intent to pivot to a mimimum-4G network and phase out the stepping stones of antiquated bands such as GSM, UMTS, CdmaOne (2G), and CDMA2000 […]
One of my team’s projects made the front page (first ever banner allowed above the masthead) of the Wall Street Journal earlier this week. WSJ Custom Studios has put together a media-enhanced explanation of how immersive and analytics technology can and have played a role in the design and play of a golf course. It’s […]
Thanks to everyone who came out and listened to my talk on encryption and Azure Key Vault! As promised, here are the slides!
I’ll be returning to speak at the Redmond .NET Developers’ Association on August 1st, 2016. Learn how to explain the importance of data security to your coworkers and/or managers. In addition, learn about how to approach this sophisticated issue using a Microsoft Azure technology, Azure Key Vault. Hope to see you there!
In the last few weeks, we’ve seen security vulnerabilities or leaks of three prominent web service companies pop up across the Internet. MySpace.Com was hacked back in 2013, and a cache of user information appeared on the black market last week.
