Alex McDonald – Starting his own business mid-lockdown after being made redundant

The Building Services Podcast

Alex is a seasoned engineering professional, a chartered engineer with a wealth of experience in Building Services, and when I heard he started an engineering consultancy of his own, mid-COVID-lockdown, there were several questions that ran through my head including: - Are you crazy? Is this going to work? - Is this the only option you had, that’s why you’re doing it? - Why are you so confident this is going to work but other businesses with more money and established brands are not so prepared to do this? So, I asked him all these questions… Additionally, and during our conversation, we touched on: Alex’s career steps, where to find less stress and more money, the challenges he’s expecting including those he shares with more established businesses, what success looks like to him and the advice he’d give to others who are unsure about where to invest.

Tech Interviews

At the start of 2018 the technology industry was hit by two new threats unlike anything it had seen before. Spectre and Meltdown used vulnerabilities not in operating system code or poorly written applications, but ones at a much lower level than that.This vulnerability was not only something of concern to today’s technology providers, but also to those looking at architecting the way technology will work in the future.As we try to push technology further and have it deal with more data, more quickly than ever before. The technology industry is having to look at ways of keeping up and have our tech work in different ways beyond the limits of our current ways of working. One of these developments is storage class memory, or persistent memory, were our data can be housed and accessed at speeds many times greater than they are today.However, this move brings new vulnerabilities in the way we operate, vulnerabilities like those exposed by Spectre and Meltdown and how did they look to exploit operational level vulnerabilities? and what does that mean for our desire to constantly push technology to use data in ever more creative and powerful ways?That’s the topic of this week’s Tech Interviews podcast, as I’m joined by the always fascinating Alex McDonald to discuss exactly what Spectre and Meltdown are, how they Impact what we do today and how they may change the way we are developing our future technology.Alex is part of the Standards Industry Association group at NetApp and represents them on boards such as SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association).In this episode we discuss* How Spectre and Meltdown work.* How this has changed with way the technology industry is approaching the future.*Risk mitigation*The Future and how the tech industry will get it right.Full show notes can be found here :- https://wp.me/p4IvtA-1yu
