I have relocated my mindmaps to a new location – WiseMapping which presents the maps in a far more consumable manner than XMind. I’ve setup the links to now bounce through bitly so if things move again the links wont break. The maps available can be found using the following links:
When I read a technical book from cover to cover I usually build a mind map so that I can use it as a memory jogger in the future if I need to return to get key points such as arguments or facts. With the ferstive break I have had time to finish reading Sam Newman’s Building Microservices. The following is a static image, but clicking on it can take you the dynamic site provided through WiseMapping, it does take a moment or two as the map is large (or click here).
Many of the points made in this excellent book are true to software design and development generally, but given a Microservices spin. For example, monitoring and security should be incorporated into any good design.
Been a busy couple of days reviewing submissions for the Oracle Scene Journal as part of the UKOUG. Some really good articles, have been submitted around a broad range of Oracle technologies from core database to mobile and beyond.
I have also been working on a mindmap relating to the IT Solutions from Oracle (ITSO) – you can see previous posts on this including ITSO Mind Mapped here is the latest update which is also available via WiseMap here.
A while back I read the book Psychology of Computer Programming by Gerald Weinberg – something of a seminal text, full of interesting observations on how people and environments can impact productivity of programming. Anyone working within a development environment would probably benefit from reading. But whilst I was reading the book, I did create a mind map of what I was reading which I have made available here.
A while back I reviewed the excellent book Enterprise Security: A Data-Centric Approach to Securing the Enterprise. I had mentioned that I would in due course make a mindmap available based on my reading of the book as I use mindmaps as a memory jog when I need to go back to referencable material.
Well I have made by first cut of the mind map – which can be found with my shared mindmaps here. I shall be updating it and adding details, so it is worth checking back.
As WordPress prevents embedding iframes – I can only offer an image here – but the mindmap toolsite provides a fully interactive view to the mindmap.
Following yesterday’s post, I thought I’d share a mindmap that was useful with the TOGAF stuff …
To use a friendly readable & navigable version of the mind map click on the image or here.
This is one of a number of mind maps I have made available through a SaaS mindmapping tool now.
As I work my way through the Aaron Woody book Enterprise Security: A Data Centric Approach to Securing the Enterprise I’ve been building a mind map of helpful notes -to help serve as a reminder or means to quickly drill back into the book for future reference.
The mind map has been build using freemind – it isn’t the prettiest of documents, but content is king here.

I’ve been reading Beyond Software Architecture – although there is nothing particularly new here, it was useful in helping me distill all the different things that as an Architect I try to take into account. Given the process of distilling thoughts I ended up choosing to mind map my thoughts. The masp can be found here.
