spend about 60% of their time building and the rest of their time learning.
Often the research is proactive, due to personal interest or a desire to ensure
skills are up to date. I am in this camp.
At other times it is borne of sheer necessity. You learn what is vital to
tackling your next big project. I am also
in this camp (no one says you have to choose). In the past new projects
assumed a hosted or on premise approach. The project manager and system
designer had to think about the essential requirements like scalability,
availability and (of course) security. In the present we still need to deliver on
these essentials but the app developers now need to do a lot more (as always). They need to span the globe,
support millions of users, curate petabytes of data, glean insights and delight
users in new ways.
Enter the cloud. As observed previously, cloud
services deliver built in scalability
and availability. The best providers also provide a wealth of prebuilt

week’s comments on “levels must change O”, they took the gown to the
town and asked (mainly British) workers what were the career expectations for
2018. For the positives, most people expect to set goals. Some 2018-levels must
change-goals include career progression (52%), salary increases (42%), gaining
respect from senior management (25%) and respect from peers (26%). Other 2018
goals include securing a better pension, and spending quality time with family
and friends amongst others. The negative (or devil) is in the details and to
quote, “The research also revealed an astounding gap between expectation and reality, with Brits expecting to earn upto 79% more than the average salary from the age of 30”. Simply put there is a massive deficit between what workers aim to earn and what data suggests they will. Goals do matter. They
encourage us to believe that we can influence our own future. Theodore

Well the shrinking of borders and rise of the web 2.5 platforms is enabling the spread of information faster than we could have ever thought. For a long time Nigerians have wondered who were the families that controlled their collective wealth. Now facts have begun to emerge and names assigned to concealed faces.
Below is a list of the families and consortiums that collectively own and distribute Nigeria's oil wealth. While the hoi polloi gnash at each others heels these ones do not fight each other except for greater stakes in our collective wealth. It must be said however that they were awarded these licenses by the Nigerian government so? Show them some respect if you cant show them love!
Do you recognise one or all of them? Beneath the list we also include a reply from the former Presidential spokesperson and Harvard Fellow - Mr Segun Adeniyi.
