Reflecting on 2020 – Embracing Change

With so much of our time already dominated by Coronavirus, I didn’t want my 2020 year in review to be just about the changes it has wrought on the world. I know in Australia we have all experienced the upheaval at work, the pain of the severe lockdowns, social isolation, and more importantly, the fear for the vulnerable.

Over the Christmas New Year Break I took an afternoon off with my girls, and we sat and wrote a retrospective of 2020 and then shared our highlights and lowlights with each other. We discovered that 2020 for us was about embracing change and lowering our expectations. Even though it was massively disruptive, the girls were able to see the positives. It was nice to hear them talk about the year like that, because it showed their resilience. My daughter Eve who is now 19, wrote a review of her year too. After that we did the same thing again with our goals for 2021. I always enjoy that time with my family.

Automagic Multi-Tenancy Config for Mobile Apps by Matt Goldman

How do you get environment- or tenant-specific config into your users' hands? For consumer apps where everyone's configuration is the same, this isn't a problem. But for Enterprise apps with a unique configuration for each tenant or environment, your users need their config to get up and running.

When deploying a web application to different environments or tenants, developers and sysadmins can configure those environments, either manually or with DevOps, and your users don't have to worry. With mobile or desktop apps, for managed devices we can pre-configure these using SOE or MDM tools, but deploying configuration to unmanaged devices is the real challenge.

In this talk, Matt looks at some different options for automating this for your users, to reduce human error and improve the UX.
