Law of Large Numbers states that the average of the results obtained from a large number of trials should be close to the expected value, and will tend to become closer as more trials are performed1.

When you take a picture with your smartphone, you are selecting a picture from a buffer that your smartphone is continuously capturing2.

When deciding a new markup language for your data structure files, remember JSON for lists and XML for trees3. XML tags will help you easily follow the structure of your data, while JSON can get very confusing very quick.

I recently read an article on why Nokia failed. It boiled down to 3 reasons 4 5.

  1. Top executives did not have a long term vision
  2. Top executives did not listen to the employees
  3. Top executives resisted change

It is probably not as simple as that but it is definitely the highlights of why they failed. On the other-hand, we see Microsoft manage to swing up with a change in leadership with Satya Nadella.

Happy Halloween!!!

Today was full of meetings and other things

Pie review:

  • Pecan pie tastes very good! (5 :star:)
  • Four Berry pie is too sweet and acidic. (2 :star:)

Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing and all that good stuff.
I have been looking into deploying Jenkins on a Kubernetes cluster. Also looking into the whole DevOps cycle.

Worked on a secret project. Servos, pulleys, linkages and weird mechanisms. It was fun! Will do it again Monday.
