Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Confucius The best part of my job is when I get to explore different technologies in order to decide what is worth pursuing and what is best left ignored. While playing with the former is more gratifying, it can also be quite fulfilling the moment I decide […]
Here is my friend, Thomas Roemer of Avaya, with another demonstration of IoT in action. In this video, he is running my IoT workflow tasks (plus several others I created) from the Avaya CPaaS cloud platform (formerly known as Zang). Cool stuff!
I decided to have a little fun today and expand on what I have been doing with bots. This time around, I created the prototype of an application that allows hospital patients to request a nurse via a bedside smart speaker. While my bot is still pretty simplistic, the idea it explores can be expanded […]
I have been a “professional” programmer since 1983 (yes, I am that old) and still get a kick out of seeing how other people use my software. In this case, Thomas Roemer from Avaya has created a smart parking solution that employs the artificial intelligence and IoT integration software I created. It’s a cool video […]
A few weeks ago, I shared the work I have been doing in creating bots for Google Home smart speakers. As cool as those applications are (in my humble opinion), I don’t ever want to be thought of as a one trick pony, so I recently turned my attention to doing the same for Amazon’s […]
As much as I enjoy seeing my articles posted on blog sites other than SIP Adventures, I get an even bigger kick from finding articles written about me. 🙂 Okay, I am not that vain (mostly), but if I am entitled to 15-minutes of geek fame, Eric Krapf’s, fun and flattering missive on the work […]
I have been programming since I was a senior at Coronado High way back in 1975. Yes, I am that old. While today’s projects are light years beyond the simple things I once wrote in BASIC and Fortran, the thrill of creating something amazing out of a bunch of number and letters is still just […]
It’s easy to learn how to drive a car without understanding how an internal combustion engine works. The same can be said about many of the machines and devices that we take for granted. Who among us can explain how an air conditioner cools a room? I expect that most people cannot. We typically learn […]
Once again, my friends at Avaya have done really cool things with my IoT software!
Those of you who know me from my technical, nerdy life know that I love protocols. It’s true. I simply adore bits, bytes, request messages, responses, ACKs, and message bodies. I take great pleasure from looking through a complicated Wireshark trace and knowing exactly what a particular header value means and why it was used. […]
