What are some recent developments or innovations in your field that you find exciting? 

Edge Computing: Cloud computing has gone mainstream, with major firms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform dominating the industry. Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as more businesses transition to cloud solutions. Edge computing is intended to assist overcome some of those issues by bypassing the latency produced by cloud computing and delivering data to a data center for processing. It can reside “on the edge,” i.e., closer to where computing is required. As a result, edge computing can be utilized to handle time-sensitive data in remote places with little or no access to a centralized site. In some cases, edge computing can function as tiny datacenters.

What is your number 1 tech tip (that you personally use) to our audience? E.g. A tool you use, a workflow, etc. 

Tip: Assess the impact, correctly identify the problem, prioritize it, brainstorm potential solutions, assess, execute the best option, test it, and document it. Finally, keep your stakeholders informed and engaged through proactive communication and updates.

What is your favorite way to unwind after a long day at work? 

Long walks, I love, appreciate, and listen to all kinds of music. Depends on the mood and the time what I am going to listen to. However, I trust my Deep House music playlist (it is public, and I have 2.6K listeners) to relax and chill after working hours.
