Back towards the end of 2017, I had the distinct privilege of being invited to contribute to the design of a new course offering on agile + its value for design thinking. The inviter was my friend, Adam Kallish, a distinguished design thinker, agile practitioner, UX architect, lecturer + all around force of nature from…

Particularly Development Operations, or DevOps for short, has become widely adopted + continues to evolve, coupled with new technologies that have been directly influenced by it + the culture it has helped shape.

The 10/65 Film Festival was a complete success. So much gratitude to everyone who helped make it so. Our kids are amazing artists + voices for sustainability in our schools + community. Watch some of our favorite entries from this year’s festival.
