April 2013 Chicago IT Architects Group Recap
Amongst all the rain and cold weather this spring in the Chicago area we continue to try to bring great software architecture focused content to you. The weather is starting to get warmer so I want to thank those who came out to join us. This month Norman Murrin has returned and this time he was covering Django CMS. While the concept of a CMS is common Django isn’t necessarily a platform that people are familiar with which gave this topic an appeal of novelty. Norm was able to give real life examples ......

March 2013 Chicago IT Architects Group Wrap-up
The group got to know their neighbors a lot better this month with only half the normal room size and a pretty good turn out. Given that, I would really like to say thank you to everyone who came out on this cold evening before the first day of spring. Eric D. Boyd gave a great interactive presentation on a variety of aspects around Windows Azure. With his experience he was machine-gunned with questions and handled it like a champ. Everyone was so interested in the subject that people stayed until ......

February 2013 Chicago IT Architect Group Summary
2013 continues to roll on. This month our meeting landed on one of the coldest day of this winter. We were lucky enough to have our co-founder Carl Franklin presenting on Google Cloud Platform. We are seeing more requests all the time presentations on clouds development and Carl delivered. His history is traditionally in the Microsoft platform, but lately he has moved to Google technologies. I think this gives him a great architectural viewpoint and the ability to give real life comparisons. Even ......

January 2013 Chicago IT Architect Group Summary
This month we had a great turn out. I was glad to see so many people come out on a cold Chicago evening. Shankar kept the subject as light as possible with a number of humorous images and one liners. The presentation was packed wall-to-wall with information for those of us who had not investigate NoSQL up to this point. I came a way feeling that this is a subject deserves a lot more attention and could also take a lifetime to become proficient in. I am encouraged that there are solutions such as ......

November 2012 Chicago IT Architects Group Meeting Recap
So the year is coming to an end. A hearty few came out two days before Thanksgiving to discuss adopting agile in the enterprise. While Norm Murrin claimed to be nervous about talking in front of a group your wouldn’t have known by his presentation. He really made a topic that has always been hard to relate very personal. This lead to some great discussion. I came out of looking for ways to investigate agile further. His presentation can be found here. This was our last meeting for the year. We are ......
