My Invitation To You

October 26, 2018

I became a software engineer in 1966 due to an experiment
that I had performed. I have never taken a course in
Software Engineering. Over the years, I have continued
to experiment on my own time and have greatly benefited
from this activity

In 1992, I became a home based software development business.
I developed a set of tools to aid me in my business activities.
These tools evolved over time and are now capable of helping
a software engineer to become a better, more competitive programmer.

I invite you to take a similar path. My tools can be downloaded
free-of-charge from my web-site, http://www.whatifwe.com and they are
well documented.

PROGRESS REPORT

WORKSPACE PREPARATION PROJECT

The library defining this project has been prepared. All syntax errors in

the associated parts have been corrected. Functional tests will be performed

next.

WORKSPACE PREPARATION PROJECT

The functional testing of the library has begun. Not unexpectedly, errors have

occurred.

Monte-Carlo Test Method

October 23, 2018

A Number of years ago, I had a contract to build a hardware
control sub-system software product.

This hardware control sub-system was designed to control
legacy hardware shipped back from the Middle East.

This legacy hardware appeared to have not been well-maintained;
it needed a lot of service.

I was afraid that I might break this hardware when I tested my
hardware control sub-system software product.

I developed a Monte-Carlo Simulator/Stimulator Test System to
validate my hardware control sub-system product.

The Monte-Carlo technology is based on a pseudo-random generator.
It was originally used in the development of nuclear weapons.

The random nature of my Monte-Carlo Test System enabled me to
rapidly and thoroughly test the hardware control sub-system, both
from a user and hardware point-of-view.

The use of a Monte-Carlo Simulator/Stimulator Test System
enabled me to deliver an error-free software product.

WHATIFWE used Monte-Carlo software test methods for all software.
Would we get better products?

Disaster Seminar 4 — When Your Machine Breaks

October 22, 2018

When Your Machine Breaks, you will lose access to:

1. Your Data.

2. Your Applications and Programs,

3. Access to the Internet.

All Machines break, even the cloud based machines that
provide you with your computing capabilities.

How does one prepare for a machine failure?`

Limitation to My Response to Your Comments

October 19, 2018

Every day I receive between 50 and 100 comments. Many of these comments request information or advise from me.

I appreciate the honor of your request for information.

Unfortunately, there is only one of me managing and writing the blog. Consequently, I simply do not have enough time to reply to each of your questions.

There are many comments that ask the same question. In these situations where I have the information, I will provide my knowledge in a post, time permitting.

I will respond to any comment made by a person who is experimenting with my software development tools.

Thank You

Blog Alerts May Become Annoying

September 21, 2018

Placing a request to be alerted when I make a post is not the best way to keep track of my activity.

I have made a lot of posts. Some of them are research reports which are individually written with the aid of my Programmable Software Development Tool. Others such as the seminars have been written some time ago and are periodically posted on my blog. Frequently, I will make as many as three posts on a single day.

As a consequence, you are going to get a lot of alerts which may become annoying to you.

Please may I suggest a better way of keeping track of my activities.

I recommend that you follow me on Twitter (@whatifwe2048). You will see that my tweets are the titles of my blog posts in the order of occurrence. You can then easily select the ones that you wish to read,

This approach will give you greater control over your internet traffic.
