This was fun. Really. And it wasn’t expected to be like this. The course was called “smart graphics” and I liked it. And one reason was the teacher…Continue reading “The Dude… of smart graphics”
Really this sounds like a topic for comp science people, eh? Believe me, it is. The course had weekly lectures, two longer presentations (nearly 4 hours each) at some weekends, several multiple choice tests and two bigger submission tasks and finally a half hour of an oral exam.Continue reading “Security techniques for communication networks”
Really! But I don’t know how and I don’t know in which relation I know things teached here. Media Didactics or didactics in general. Maybe I had some basic knowledge earned in a project or in my diploma thesis days.Continue reading “I knew this”
At the university I’m currently in a course called “Design of Motion Graphic Interfaces” and one assignment is to create a video clip consisting of four parts matching the following requirements:
- the 1st part should introduce me
- the other parts should be related to given chapters from Hararis “Homo Deus”
- you’ll have to use given techniques (like greenscreening, shape-transforming, alpha-masks,…)
- try to avoid cliparts and copyrighted content
- and intermediate sequences should glue everything together
Don’t know if midlife-crisis hits me hard yet – or something else – but now I’m officially a student again. It’s (nearly) the same course of studies as twenty years ago and if I read the module handbook I find a lot of similarities. But as I said – 20 yrs – a lot of time, a lot of changes and I’m really a little bit afraid of the things to come.Continue reading “At the university… again”
“The final delivered product should contain the sources, all needed dependencies and the documentation on how to build the system.”
Continue reading “Compile as requirement”
Frequently this or something similar could be found in the requirements without a proper description what is really wanted and is often misunderstood on both sides. And sometimes it is dangerous as well.
Today someone asked if I’ve got Backups of every piece of code i’d wrote. Intimidating question and of course not. I’m sure I’ve got zipped backups of the last sources for some older ones but in most cases a backup of the VCS for the important projects. Somewhere the CVS for the ugly LaTeX things called Diploma thesis too.Continue reading “Lost Backups”
And again… I had three very good days in Munich at conference. Very good conversations, lots of presentations and fun too.
Sometimes strange things could be nice too – I’ve got an invitation from a consulting company to join an evening where practices for IT service management should be applied on the example of ‘grilling a steak’. Sounds funny. Service management is not necessarily my topic but meat in combination with fire -of course- is.
…just basics. I believe my first encounter with JBoss as application server was in 2003 and most projects before where done with Apaches Tomcat. Nearly one or two years later – and with a little bit more experience with Java Enterprise – the JBoss system became the preferred app server by me and the tool of choice (in cases where I’ve got the choice).Continue reading “JBoss EAP 6/7 Administration and Development Training Days”
