• Fireside chat with Hitesh Patel from f5

    (06 Dec 2018)
    I had the opportunity to attend the f5 Networks North American Partner Leadership Summit December 4th and 5th. They certainly picked a sweet spot the host the event, the Ritz Carlton - Half Moon Bay is an amazing property on the edge of the west coast. Hitesh and I were able to step away during lunch to have a conversation about what's going on with f5, the thriving community, emerging technology and all the change that is rolling out across the organization.

    My expedition to Arctiq began at the age of eight at the green-screen of my dad’s 286 PC running DOS 5. I was completely fascinated! But not by games, as typical among my grade-3 peers, (although Oregon Trail on my school’s Apple II !)) but simply by how the machine worked. At that age, while most kids were fiddling with their Nintendo NES, my father taught me about config.sys, autoexec.bat, EMM memory tuning, direct memory access, IRQ's, system interrupts and file allocation tables. I would watch over his shoulder as he opened up the case and taught me about CPU's, memory, IDE cables, floppy drives, and all the little gotchas to remember about installing components. . These were not lessons you would find your average kid learning at that time (today is a different story!)
