Google Code-in 2016: another record breaking year

Google Open Source Blog - 6 hours 28 min ago
Today we celebrate the closing of the 7th annual Google Code-in (GCI) which, like last year, was bigger and better than ever. Mentors from each of the 17 organizations are busy reviewing the last of the work submitted by student participants.

Each organization will pick two Grand Prize Winners who will receive a trip to Google’s Northern California headquarters this summer where they will meet Google engineers, see exciting demos and presentations and enjoy a day of adventure in San Francisco. You can learn about the experiences of the 2015 Grand Prize Winners in our short series of wrap-up blog posts. We’ll announce the new Grand Prize Winners and the Finalists here on January 30.

We would like to congratulate all of the new and returning students who participated this year. We’re thrilled with the turnout: over the last seven weeks, 1,374* students from 62 countries completed 6,397* tasks in the contest.

And a HUGE thanks to the people who are the heart of our program: the mentors and organization administrators. These volunteers spend countless hours creating and reviewing hundreds of tasks. They teach the young students who participate in GCI about the many facets of open source development, from community standards and communicating across time zones to version control and testing. We couldn’t run this program without you!

By Josh Simmons, Open Source Programs Office

* These numbers will increase over the coming days as mentors review the final work submitted by students.

Cloud #APM | @CloudExpo @CAinc @Aruna13 #APM #DevOps #ML #CD #SDN

As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience.

Dojo 2 updates – Week ending Jan, 13 2017

The Dojo Toolkit - Announcements - 9 hours 14 min ago

We’ve accomplished a lot on Dojo 2 over the past few months, which has meant a fair amount of churn and improvements. Rather than trying to recap everything, we’re going to start covering some of the highlights in more frequent, shorter blog posts than we did in 2016.

Dojo 2 roadmap update

We have a new Dojo 2 roadmap. It’s currently more accurate about the things we’ve finished than it is about the things that are upcoming. We’re in the process of splitting out the remaining items into things that block the first Dojo 2 beta, and those that will follow it.

Scoped packages

With npm, the first package to choose a name wins, and in the past this has led to things like dgrid, dstore, and even util and themes not being able to have the same name in npm as they do in our own repositories. npm does not make it easy to provide aliases between names, so there’s been a fair amount of workarounds needed to provide a consistent installation experience for npm and non-npm users.

A while back, npm added support for scoped packages, so that it would be easy enough to refer to something as @dojo/core rather than dojo-core. We had resisted going this route as we were still aiming to support bower, but with a significant decrease in adoption of bower, and a heavy reliance on npm for the Dojo 2 development approach, we’ve made the decision to drop bower support for Dojo 2 and we’ve started using scoped packages.

In your code, the main change will be with how you include and reference dependencies. A dojo/core commit shows how this works in practice, but the things to note are:

  • The source package remains in the same location, e.g. dojo/loader is still found at https://github.com/dojo/loader
  • When including that package as a dependency, you will now include it as @dojo/loader instead of dojo-loader in both your package.json as well as within any ES6 module import statements, as well as via any npm install commands, e.g. npm install @dojo/loader

Besides being able to keep short and consistent package names, all officially supported Dojo 2 packages will be included under this scope.

This empowered organization drives the business with one single version of the truth across all lines of business, to enable better decision making, including achieving the right balance between item availability and inventory position.   “To achieve our corporate goals, planned transformation initiatives and customer centric strategy, we needed the right systems, processes, and people in place. Oracle is uniquely qualified to support our current and future business strategy with retail rich end to end capabilities and best in class technology,” said Fawaz Kilfaden, Director of Information Technology at Panda Retail Company. “Ultimately, the goal of the program is to enrich the customer experience, improve performance and enhance our business governance across the enterprise.”   Panda adopted a flexible implementation strategy for its complete suite of solutions, including Oracle Retail Merchandise Operations Management, Oracle Retail Merchandise Financial Planning, Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting, Retail Merchandising Analytics and Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management.  The Oracle solutions replace legacy in-house and outdated vendor solutions that limited data access and lacked the roadmap to meet changing retail trends.  Panda wanted to put in place a system that would account for all of its retail and enterprise operations, and would afford greater flexibility for growth and innovation.   “We are pleased to continue to be part of Panda’s vibrant business and innovation, as the company expands its international presence.

Digital Crossfire | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc @Aruna13 #DevOps #API #AI #ML

Java Developer's Journal - 14 hours 31 min ago
Brand owners are caught in a digital crossfire. From one direction comes intense competitive pressure to innovate or to at least follow very, very quickly. From the precisely opposite direction comes the potentially existential threat of an app very publicly flopping or – even worse – being very publicly revealed to jeopardize the customer’s well-being. Either way, you lose brand value in a social marketplace where brand is your primary currency. What’s a brand owner to do?

DevOps is enabling organizations to more aggressively increase their digital agility, while at the same time reducing digital costs and risks. But as 2017 approaches, the hottest trends in DevOps aren’t specifically about dev or ops. They’re about testing, security, and metrics.

Java Developer's Journal - 18 hours 46 min ago
Enterprise networks are complex. Moreover, they were designed and deployed to meet a specific set of business requirements at a specific point in time. But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing performance and reducing operational risk through standardization and best-practice architectures.
