Bio:

I teach and publish (articles, books, and courseware) in many areas of information systems focusing on strategy, management, and technology. My current research interests include development methodologies for mobile devices (phone and tablets), development architectures, platforms and languages including: .NET, PHP, MySQL, Ruby on Rails, WebSphere, Visual Basic, C#, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, AJAX, and Java. I am also interested in concepts, techniques and tools associated with the MEAN stack. Lately, I have started working on Arificial Intelligence (AI) and in particular Machine Learning (ML). Occasionally, I still teach IBM mainframe topics such as: COBOL, CICS, and DB2.
Currently, I am teaching development courses for designing and implementing  business applications on the ASP .NET Core platform and on the MEAN stack with hosting on Azure (ASP.NET) and Heroku (MEAN). Perodically, I also teach Information Technology Security and Machine Learning (ML).
I am still keeping up with the latest Microsoft and Open Source developemnt tools, technologies, and methodologies.
