Solution Architect (Integrator) [Details]
Griffith University, -

Provide expertise to identify and translate system requirements into software design documentation, identifying possible existing solutions (internal and external).

Working with researchers, academics, fellow architects, technical staff, and vendors to collaborately design, document, review, and implement solutions to the benefit of the university. I am attached to the research area, so the work includes novel areas and novel technolgies such as AI. The architects work very closely with information management and cybersecurity, so we require a knowledge of these areas to coordinate well.

Griffith is a TOGAF-based architecture structure.

Previous experience

Publication: Code of the Coder [Details]

People claim to be Code Ninja or CSS Samurai, but how many of them follow a code? How many of them practice daily katas to keep in the best condition? This book foolishly applies the Seven Virtues of Bushido and the Eighteen Disciplines of Togekure-ryu ninjutsu to the coding arts, mistakenly finding some wisdom along the way.
