The telephone, which interrupts the most serious conversations and cuts short the most weighty observations, has a romance of its own. – Virginia Woolf I have been writing communications software since the 1980s. I began working with proprietary protocols such as Northern Telecom’s Meridian Link and Applications Module Link before moving to “standards” such as […]
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 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 […]
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. […]
Avaya has been very busy creating Breeze workflows with my IoT software and the most engaging uses of my work can be found in their Lego Smart City. It’s impressive how little blocks of plastic can be so successful at presenting IoT in ways that everyone can relate to. Here are two videos that demonstrate […]
It’s important to know one’s limitations. For example, I consider myself a pretty good computer programmer. I love problem solving and turning abstract concepts into lines of code. Over the years, I have written everything from SIP-based communication services to hard disk interrupt processors. However, I am not good at writing software that people can […]
I was very excited to see that one of the winners at the Enterprise Connect TADHack-mini used my Zang IoT software! That’s pretty darn cool!
