Cloud Migration Dollars and Sense | @CloudExpo #API #SaaS #ITaaS #Cloud

The explosion of cloud onto the enterprise scene has, literally, revolutionized how businesses across the size spectrum do business, yet there’s a price tag tucked into this cloud’s silver lining that smart decision-makers should pay heed to. This is the era of what I like to call the consumerization of enterprise software. It’s bringing tremendous benefit to the business world, but it’s also bringing a great deal of change, particularly to the understanding of how business software adoption and use is done, and enterprises of all sizes need to familiarize themselves with best practices-understanding to leverage the power of the cloud.

Configuration with #Jenkins | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousIntegration

Java Developer's Journal - 4 hours 45 min ago
As applications are promoted from the development environment to the CI or the QA environment and then into the production environment, it is very common for the configuration settings to be changed as the code is promoted. For example, the settings for the database connection pools are typically lower in development environment than the QA/Load Testing environment. The primary reason for the existence of the configuration setting differences is to enhance application performance. However, occasionally there are instances where the application code is mistakenly promoted into production without changing these settings. In such cases, such promotion of code can cause performance havoc in the production environment. This blog describes one such scenario.

[session] #DevOps and #Microservices Security | @DevOpsSummit @Amir_Sharif

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 09/29/2016 - 06:45
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software security issues.

HTTPS Is Not Faster Than HTTP | @DevOpsSummit #WebPerf #DataCenter

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 09/29/2016 - 06:30
Yes, Lori has been reading the Internet again. And what she’s been seeing makes baby Lori angry. It also makes this former test designer and technology editor cry. Really, I weep at both the excuses offered for such testing and the misleading headline. I have read no less than two contrived comparisons of “HTTPS” and “HTTP” in the last two weeks purporting to demonstrate that secure HTTP is inarguably faster than its plaintext counterpart, HTTP.

A sizzling open source release for the Australian Election site

Google Open Source Blog - Wed, 09/28/2016 - 23:49
Originally posted on the Geo Developers Blog

One of the best parts of my job at Google is 20 percent time. While I was hired to help developers use Google’s APIs, I value the time I'm afforded to be a student myself—to learn new technologies and solve real-world problems. A few weeks prior to the recent Australian election an opportunity presented itself. A small team in Sydney set their sights on helping the 15 million voters stay informed of how to participate, track real-time results, and (of course) find the closest election sausage sizzle!


Our team of designers, engineers and product managers didn't have an immediate sense of how to attack the problem. What we did have was the power of Google’s APIs, programming languages, and Cloud hosting with Firebase and Google Cloud Platform.



The result is a mish-mash of some technologies we'd been wanting to learn more about. We're open sourcing the ausvotes.withgoogle.com repository to give developers a sense of what happens when you get a handful of engineers in a room with a clear goal and a immovable deadline.

The Election AU 2016 repository uses:

  • Go from Google App Engine instances to serve the appropriate level of detail for users' viewport queries from memory at very low latency, and
  • Dart to render the live result maps on top of Google Maps JavaScript API using Firebase real time database updates.

A product is only as good as the attention and usage is receives. Our team was really happy with the results of our work:

  • 406,000 people used our maps, including 217,000 on election day.
  • We had 139 stories in the media.
  • Our map was also embedded in major news websites, such as Sky News.

Complete setup and installation instructions are available in the GitHub README.
