Emiri has been performing on stage — singing, dancing, acting, playing piano — since she was three. But this her first YouTube video! She wrote this song and performed it at the Yamaha studio in Osaka recently. The title says A Journey to Find Myself 自分さがしの旅” (Variations 変奏曲). I think there will be many more videos to come.
In December we went back to Bangalore for another coding hackfest. This time with McAfee. We had about 35 developers from Oracle and McAfee in Bangalore, and there were about 20 or so working in Santa Clara during the same week. Great fun. Amazing how much work software engineers can get done in just a three days with some focused attention — without meetings, managers, and whatever else gets in the way of coding. #codeinnovate
It’s all about shopping. Cash out, stuff in, back to work.
Went down to the city today to take some images at the Osaka Marathon. I was too late to get the elite runners, but that’s fine since I’d rather look at all the interesting costumes people come up with. 35 images on Flickr here.
A couple of weeks ago we went down to Bangalore for a hackfest week with engineers from Oracle and GE. Worked out really well. We used a Scrum/Agile framework so the engineers were free from management. They split up into six teams and created some projects (Chatbots, Microservices, Blockchain, etc) using the Oracle Cloud. We had 40 developers in the room and another 18 at some other locations in India on Skype. Also, there was a parallel event with Oracle and GE up in Detroit. This was our first such joint hacking effort. Hopefully more to come. All the images here. #codeinnovate
