What we have to say, what you want us to hear.

That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.

Mar 01, 2018 | by Daniela Williams, Project Manager | Tags: Meet Our Team

Welcome back to the Meet Our Team Q&A series. My name is Daniela Williams, Project Manager at ISE, and I’ll be asking ISE team members questions to help give insight into what makes us tick. 

In honor of wrapping up National Engineers Week last week and ISE's 15 year anniversary, today I'm interviewing Jeff Moody, Senior Software Engineer, and one of the original eight ISE team members.


Celebrating Engineers

It's National Engineers Week! This morning our Fun Committee kicked off a week of celebrating the many engineers at ISE with bagels for everyone.  I know they have a few more exciting activities planned for this week as well. 


IoT Platforms and Economics

If you were to ask most people to name some popular social media platforms, you would likely get a quick response of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or MySpace (just kidding on that last one).  Ask that same person to name some popular IoT platforms and prepare for a deer in headlights look.  Even if a person has knowledge about the IoT space, they likely do not know what the market is offering in terms of platforms.  That’s in large part because the market is still very much in the early stages.

When I first learned* about Scrum, the trainer provided us with some "rules of thumb" for planning our time during a sprint. As we started putting Scrum into practice, we applied these rules of thumb… but also encountered shock and horror from outside the team about how much "overhead" was involved. The arrival of Ken Rubin's recent blog post, How Much Time Should Each Scrum Practice Take? reminded me of these early experiences. In this blog post, I reflect on the perception vs. reality of this "overhead".
