The Name is Stiller. Eran Stiller. (Take 2)

Monday, October 15, 2012

I opened my personal blog about 3 years ago in order to share my experiences as a software consultant and to tell of interesting thoughts and ideas I have. I actually wrote some posts from time to time, but then something happened to me that has unfortunately happened to many other bloggers along the road as well – I stopped blogging… The reasons were various and mostly mundane, but the major reason was that building a company takes a lot of time and effort. As my energies were focused at getting CodeValue up on its feet, I started...

Architect’s Master Class – Impressions so far

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Luckily for me, starting yesterday I had the privilege to attend Juval Lowy’s 5-day Architect’s Master Class which is held in Israel and organized by Gadi Meir’s IDAG. In this Master Class, Juval, a recognized software legend by Microsoft and one of the most well known Software Architects in the world, explains the role of the Software Architect in the Software Development industry and his position in the organization. Listening to Juval is, as always, a pleasure. I am personally happy to find out that many issues I have contemplated about in the past as a solution Architect...

A New Journey Begins

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Time to Say Goodbye It's been more than a year since I joined Sela, and I've arrived to a point where I felt that it's time to move on. I had a great time since I joined Sela, as I had the opportunity to deep-dive into some interesting technologies and meet some exceptional people. I would like to take this opportunity to thank some of them: Erez Fliess - My manager at Sela, and the person who (together with Alon) is responsible for me being there in the first place. From Erez I learned...

How Fanboys See Operating Systems

Thursday, December 17, 2009

I usually don’t like blog posts which simply reference some other site, but this one is just too good. I can definitely sympathize with that one. Thanks to Elad Hanania who pointed me at the direction.

PDC 2009 Day 2 Concluded with Geek Fest

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Well, the second day of the PDC is now over with only one more day to go. I can really start to feel the end… So what have we had today? Silverlight 4 announcement, several technical sessions, a free laptop and at the end – Geek Fest. Geek Fest was basically a party Microsoft arranged instead of the traditional big PDC party which was probably canceled due to budget limitations. This festival was comprised mostly of a lot of games spread across the conference hall, massage tables, good music and a lot food. All in all,...

PDC 2009 Day 2: A Free Tablet Convertible Laptop

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

As was announced during the PDC keynote, all PDC attendees received a free PDC Convertible Tablet Laptop with an accompanying license for Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Of course, in order to get the laptop you had to stand in a long line, but fortunately the representatives at distribution desk worked very efficiently and the line moved pretty quickly. This laptop is an Acer Inspire 1420P which is an 11.6” Multi-Touch machine, and it looks like a very nice one. I hope I’ll have some time to try it out later on today.

Well, it’s almost 2:00 AM here in Los-Angeles, and the first day of the PDC is almost over.

All in all – I had a good time today.To finish, here are some pictures from the partner Expo held this evening: Oh, and tonight all of...

PDC 2009: Getting ready for PDC 2009

Monday, November 16, 2009

As most of you probably know, Microsoft's PDC 2009 is starting tomorrow and I'm already here in Los-Angeles. Today we had some fun at Los-Angeles' Six-Flags Magic Mountain rollercoaster park (highly recommended), but the real fun starts tomorrow at the PDC pre-conference workshops. As for my own schedule, tomorrow I’ll attend the “Windows 7 Developer Boot Camp” and during the conference itself I intend to focus on sessions related to multi-threaded programming in .NET 4.0 and Windows 7, WCF 4.0, Workflow Services 4.0 and more interesting topics which would arise (as my schedule is not fixed yet). On this blog,...
