Today I said goodbye to many of my coworkers. Many of those were my colleagues for years, some only for couple of months. Many of them because actually real friends. From all of them I learned a lot and together we achieved much more. I was overwhelmed with reactions I got to my farewell email. It is actually just one hour before my account will be disabled and I finished answering and thanking them for all kind words. Some of them made me laugh, some of them cry, but all make me proud, that I was allowed to be part of this team. We have learned together, grown together, made mistakes together and have always made the best of each situation. Continue reading “…and tomorrow new era is about to begin.”
It has been nearly 15 years since I last time changed my employer (my whole employment history can be seen on LinkedIn). I must admit, that I really do not remember much how I felt at that time. But I know that it was exciting, as it is now. Now it is again time to make next step in my career and go on.

I suppose, you have all seen my first YouTube published presentation, that I was holding in Athens. So you also know, that I was talking about security in IT. This presentation is also the one, that I had to repeat the most often till now. Most repetition have obviously been done for my employer and for our contracting partners. I do not want to repeat here, what I was talking about (because you can see this for yourself), but I want to tell you about 2 extremes that happened to me, when I approached some of our partners with security topic.
I can hardly believe, that it has passed half a year since my last published blog article. To me this time certainly did not seem that long. I would say, it has been at most 2 months 🙂 . But Chronos is merciless and is always right!
However, this does not mean I was lazy all the time! It is true, that we were also having 3 weeks of summer holidays, but also there we were very active. I will not write here about my holidays or about projects I was having at work. But let me describe some of my other (mostly private) projects of last half a year Continue reading “After half a year of (blog) silence”
It is not so long time ago, when I was asked how do I manage to stay up to date with so many technologies and how am I able to follow so many streams of news that are available each day.
The answer is simple. I DO NOT MANAGE IT, but I do the best I can. I do not think, that there is simple solution or single way to walk. I also doubt, that the path I am walking will work for you, but I hope you might find a thing or 2 useful and maybe you can try it out. Please let me know if it worked for you as well.
