Slogan of the month: Stop starting and start finishing. (Again) What have I done: Re-created the CoT project portfolio, now in a digital version (experimenting with Excel). It is good for sharing in our digital and distributed working environment, but a bit harder to update. I attended the Bonn Agile Meetup January: “IoT und Bastelprojekte” and talked about my AirQuality Lab project I attended a lot of Kick-Off-events (unit, department, CoT-team, Service Development team). Some were useful, some had good food. I worked on our first goals for 2017. First results in February 2017. I completed a course on my Coursera data science specialization course (Reproducible research) Watched the NFL playoffs Read: Clemens Vasters definitions of elements of Internet of Things The current state of machine intelligence 3.0 7 Data Visualization Types You Should be Using More (and How to Start) IoT-Trends in 2017 Data analytics projects: From theory to practice I said it more…
Slogan of the month: The intellectual capital of your business has two legs and walks home every day.
What have I done:
- Had nice workshops at Fraunhofer Institute for Big Data Analytics
- Successfully finished hard work on a internal data center migration with the Cloud of Things team
- Planted the seeds for the hosting quality improvements
- Worked on the performance of my blog. Improved site performance by 40%. PHP upgrade to v7 was the most gain. Performance could be better but for my kind of hosting it’s very good.
- Designed strategy, corner milestones and goals for 2017
- Prepared my talk for Bonn Agile Meetup January: IoT und Bastelprojekte (more on this later in this blog)
- Enjoyed Christmas and New Year’s Eve vacation
Slogan of the month: What you see is not always what you get
What have I done:
- Worked on the Cloud of Things Java Rest SDK
- Been happy to be ranked as a leader in the magic quadrant in Gartner Report of “Managed M2M Services“
- Shook my head about the president election in the USA.
- Proceed in my study of Data Science
- Worked on the strategy & goals for 2017’s Cloud of Things
- Worked on NB-IoT integration
- Field report of a Docker user: Docker in Production: A History of Failure
- “Because lot of the engineers and researchers in and around “IoT”, me included, are getting quite tired of these sorts of fluff “vision” and “projecting competence” pieces that don’t contribute anything new to the conversation” → Storm the Beaches! Liberate IoT Data!?

Maybe you are a regular reader of my blog. By regular I mean at least once a year or so. ;-) If so, you may have noticed the last half of the year this blog was more or less abandoned. But this was not because nothing happened. It happened so much that I didn’t find the time to write. A common thing I’m sure you know about. But was going on?
I took part in two Enduro Mountain Bike races. It was such a great experience. I got much impressions, learned to handle my bike in deep mud. Okay, I don’t got it, I crashed several times. I got a glimpse of what it means to be constant during a season. Daily training eats up your time, that’s for sure. Keeping up the motivation after three months was too hard for me. Results? I don’t want to talk about ;-), but I had great fun at the races and that’s what counts for me.
I have married! As usual, I keep the private things private on this blog. I decided to take over my wife’s surname. I updated this site domain, so please update your bookmarks, RSS readers, etc. to patricksteinert.de for best reading experience.
Favorite slogan: So we are doomed!
What have I done:
- Worked hard on launching new Cloud of Things Features: New Cockpit App is out!
- Wonder how someone can setup a MongoDB Docker Cluster without persistence!?
- Coded on some Cloud of Things API and Client stuff Had a new record on contributing code to Github: Longest streak 7 days
January 30 – February 5.
- Updating servers for glibc vulnerability.
- Start planning for big CoT team ramp-up. Scale from one to four teams in one month. Big experiment.
- Had a week of vacation. Practiced not to work. Successful.
Favorite slogan: You want to get things done, not building an inventory of unfinished work!
What have I done:
- Kicked of the first quarter 2016 with hard deadlines for Cloud of Things (watch out for CeBIT)
- Had some weekend & night shifts because of service outages of Cloud of Things. Turned out that a Gelf4J appender for Graylog caused the issues.
- Started to play with JavaFX and build a Cloud of Things Genius Client for testing purposes on CoT. (Thanks code.makery for this helpful JavaFX tutorial)
- Did a talk on our Deutsche Telekom M2M Day 2016
- I have a new record on contributing to Github
- MQTT Security Fundamentals: MQTT Payload Encryption
- Why Big Companies Keep Failing: The Stack Fallacy
- The evils of chasing Scrum Velocity…
PS: A new try to give a regular update on this blog. Last year I tried a weekly recap, didn’t worked out. But I’m pretty sure that this will work ;-) Continue reading Retrospective January 2016
