Welcome to my home page.

I am a Principal Group Software Engineering Manager (we seem to like long titles J) in the Information Management and Machine Learning (IMML) Group and affiliated with Microsoft Research.
(From 1999–2007, relating to my previous life, I was also an adjunct professor with QUT.)

NEWS – In November 2014, we released our public preview of the brand-new Azure Streaming Analytics service, a fully managed, resilient, scalable service in Azure that runs standing queries expressed in a temporal extension of the SQL query subset over streams of events and sets of reference data.

In February 2014, we released the second version of Power Query, as part of the Power BI offering, integrated with numerous other new products and services. Power Query is updated monthly.

In July 2013, we shipped the standalone version of Power Query (previously code-named “Data Explorer”); an end-user focused data acquisition and mashup tool deeply integrated into Excel. It allows you to connect to a large variety of data sources, crack data formats, extract and cleanse data, join data across sources, and get most things done by using a query-by-example style visual editor. If you need to reach deeper, then a powerful functional language (“M”) is at your disposal as well.

Upcoming Events

(Disclaimer: The information below is quoted for your convenience only; please use event web sites to check dates, venues, deadlines, and other information for accuracy.)

2015

·         20th International Workshop on Component-Oriented Programming (WCOP 2015) (part of the CompArch 2015 federated events).
Montréal, Canada, 4 May 2015.

In the frame of the CompArch 2015 conference, WCOP (formerly the Workshop on Component Oriented Programming) is organized as a Doctoral Symposium for young researchers in the area of component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality. The doctoral symposium is aimed to give feedback from established researchers to promising new ideas in the field of component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality to young researchers in all phases of their Phd career. Therefore we intentionally encourage PhD students, young Post-Doc researchers, and junior academics to submit their proposal statements with potentially unfinished and not yet validated ideas.

CFP: Submissions due 9 January 2015.

·         17th International ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on Component-Based Software Engineering (CBSE 2015) (part of the CompArch 2015 federated events).
Montréal, Canada, 4–8 May 2015.

Component-based Software Engineering (CBSE) continues to attract interest and evolve as a discipline for the rapid assembly of flexible software systems. CBSE combines elements of software requirements engineering, architecture, design, verification, testing, configuration and deployment. The CBSE symposium has an established track record of bringing together researchers and practitioners from a variety of disciplines to promote a better understanding of CBSE from diverse perspectives, and to engage in active discussion and debate. CBSE 2015 is open to all participants from universities and industry interested in CBSE and related areas.

CFP: Abstracts due: 14 December 2014; full papers due: 21 December 2014.

·         11th International Conference on the Quality of Software Architectures (QoSA 2015) (part of the CompArch 2015 federated events).
Montréal, Canada, 4–8 May 2015.

The goal of QoSA (Quality of Software Architectures) is to address the quality aspects of software architecture, focusing broadly on its quality characteristics and how these relate to the design of software architectures. Specific issues of interest are defining and modeling quality measures, evaluating and managing architecture quality, linking architecture to requirements and implementation, and preserving architecture quality throughout the system lifetime.

CFP: Abstracts due: 21 December 2014; full papers due: 9 January 2015.

·         Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture (WICSA 2015).
Montréal, Canada, 4–8 May 2015.

WICSA is the premier gathering of practitioners and researchers interested in finding out about and improving the state of practice of Software Architecture. For WICSA 2015 the theme is “Architecting in context” – exploring the relations between software architecture, organizational and global, ever-changing and pervasive contexts.

CFP: Abstracts (obligatory) due: 6 January 2015; full papers due: 15 January 2015.

Resources

Prof. Niklaus Wirth released several of his seminal books in electronic form. Project Oberon has all the details (and sources!) behind both the language and the system Oberon. The classic Compiler Construction is probably the most concise text on the topic ever – and yet it leads you to constructing fully functional compilers. There is also an adaptation of the classic Programming in Modula-2, adapted for Oberon: Programming in Oberon. Finally, the seminal Algorithms and Data Structures text, also adapted to Oberon.
