This blog talks about software and systems integration. No developers were harmed in the creation of this blog.. well, mostly, anyway..


Greetings! My name is Shanid Gafur and I tend to work on a wide variety of things.. mostly my work involves putting pieces of software together in large enterprises, and figuring out how to make them work with one another. Occasionally, this works as documented. Most of the time, however, the documentation and the practice are not really the same thing..

As it relates to software integration, and technology in’s one of my favorite quotes..

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is..

This blog is my attempt to share some of the interesting things that I’ve worked on, and some of the integration lessons that I’ve learnt the hard way. Hopefully, it makes someone else’s job sightly easier..
