SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something with my techie hat on, so I decided to share couple diagrams I’ve made while back to explain how SAML works.

SAML, Single Sign On

I am not going to do a whole lecture on what SAML is on this post but here is a brief explanation for those who may not know what it is and are wondering. 🙂

My Attitude, My Life, My Rules

I wrote a little poem on my subway ride today. It’s about my attitude, my life and my rules!

Do your best,
Pursue your dream,
Have your voice,
Work honestly,
Take care yourself,
Be considerate,
Live with an open mind,
Enjoy life.

Do your best.
Its ok not to be on top, but
Its not ok to stop trying.

Pursue your dream.
Its ok to negotiate with the reality, but
Its not ok to just settle.

Have your voice.
Its ok to be quiet, but
Its not ok to stop expressing your thoughts and feelings.

Work honestly.
Its ok to hide your weakness, but
Its not ok to mislead and blame your failure on others.

Take care yourself.
Its ok to sacrifice for others, but
Its not ok to lose and hurt yourself along the way.

Be considerate.
Its ok to hibernate, but
Its not ok to ignore and hurt feelings of those around you.

Live with an open mind.
Its ok to be opinionated, but
Its not ok to stop listening and acknowledging differences.

Enjoy life.
Appreciate Now and Today,
Later and Tomorrow may never come.
ME

 

My rule of thumb, become a better “me” at work

On my subway ride to work, I sometimes think about how ideal “me” at work would behave. This morning, I decided to write my thoughts down as I was listening to new songs that I downloaded on my iPod.  Here is my rule of thumb that I try following to become a better “me” at work. I think it would be awesome too if everyone at work try to follow these rules… Just a thought. ^^*;

Observe and listen,
Investigate and analyze,
Engage and document,
Ask and clarify.

Think logically and creatively,
Collaborate and formulate solutions that make sense,
Make decisions based on facts, but also
Believe in intuition and experiences.

Work with the team with confidence, patience and trust,
Give credit where credit is due,
Argue with constructive reasonings,
Look for improvements and opportunities,
…And ultimately be responsible, humble and honest.
