Software Error vs Exception – In Real World Examples | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #APM #Monitoring

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 04/11/2017 - 16:45
After 15+ years of software development, I still use the words error and exception interchangeably. But is there a difference between exceptions and errors? I think it is best to make the distinction with some examples of errors vs exceptions. Let's use this example of a dishwasher. Both images depict a problem, or error, that happened with the dishwasher. One was clearly user error of putting in the wrong type of soap. The other was an error that the dishwasher recognized and showed an error code for this.

Cloud Providers Innovate, Build and Cash In | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Serverless

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 04/11/2017 - 14:15
In this brave new world of running businesses with cloud and SaaS technology, who's buying hardware anymore? Well, cloud providers, that's who. Financial filings from AWS, Microsoft and Google show they spent a combined $31.54 billion on capital expenditures and capital leases in 2016. Amazon is building a new cloud region in Sweden, and analysts say one region alone can cost several hundred million dollars. This kind of spending clearly reflects the way businesses are adopting cloud, and also makes it a lot harder for other wannabe providers to get in the game.

Server Provisioning | @DevOpsSummit @Automic @CAinc #DevOps #APM

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Mon, 04/10/2017 - 23:30
In large enterprises, environment provisioning and server provisioning account for a significant portion of the operations team's time. This often leaves users frustrated while they wait for these services. For instance, server provisioning can take several days and sometimes even weeks. At the same time, digital transformation means the need for server and environment provisioning is constantly growing. Organizations are adopting agile methodologies and software teams are increasing the speed of their development processes, thus requiring more and more servers and environments to be provisioned for their development and testing.

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Mon, 04/10/2017 - 14:15
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Nutanix “Platinum Sponsor” of @CloudExpo NY & Silicon Valley | #AI #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Mon, 04/10/2017 - 13:00
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

[session] Test Automation | @DevOpsSummit @AnneHungate #AI #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sun, 04/09/2017 - 23:45
“Why didn’t testing catch this” must become “How did this make it to testing?” Traditional quality teams are the crutch and excuse keeping organizations from making the necessary investment in people, process, and technology to accelerate test automation. Just like societies that did not build waterways because the labor to keep carrying the water was so cheap, we have created disincentives to automate. In her session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Anne Hungate, President of Daring Systems, will discuss how to break the cycle of manual testing as de-facto – empowering development and quality to lead with automation. Be prepared to learn about the changes in reporting, behaviors, and communication necessary to make automation the first choice.

[session] Rolling Out @Docker | @DevOpsSummit @DatagridSystems #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sun, 04/09/2017 - 20:45
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed.

[session] Composable Infrastructure | @CloudExpo @HTBase #SDN #DataCenter

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 04/08/2017 - 18:00
HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it. This meant that up to now the HyperConverged vendors were in charge of the requirements.

Bringing #DevOps to #DataScience | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc #AI #Analytics

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 04/08/2017 - 17:00
There’s no shortage of material about DevOps on the Interwebs. But as you sift through mountains of information, it appears mostly skewed toward better and faster web and mobile app development. Look for details on how the thinking can be applied to the wicked world of data science or analytics and you’ll be hard pressed to find much at all. This seems odd, because a sustainable business isn’t just carved out on the back of web and mobile apps. It’s also dependent on intimately understanding customer data and pivoting towards the opportunities revealed – with yes, web and mobile apps.

Value of Unlocking Legacy Applications | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Analytics

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 04/08/2017 - 17:00
There's an impulse to roll one's eyes and think of legacy applications as problematic, almost by definition. They're old, and they may run on hardware that's slower or more difficult to maintain. But in many instances, that's too simplistic an assessment. Would you respond the same way to an older bottle of a Grand Cru Bordeaux? For many state and federal agencies, the data and the processes associated with legacy applications take on a similar rarified value. There may be years of insights bound up in that older database, processes that have been tried, tested and streamlined over years of use. That data and those processes may be an essential part of what enables an agency to meet its stakeholder needs. Rather than viewing it as a creaky old system that should be replaced, it's worth looking instead at modernizing how users interact with it.

C# Exception Handling Best Practices | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Monitoring

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 04/08/2017 - 16:00
Exceptions are a type of error that occurs during the execution of an application. Errors are typically problems that are not expected. Whereas, exceptions are expected to happen within application code for various reasons. Applications use exception handling logic to explicitly handle the exceptions when they happen. Exceptions can occur for a wide variety of reasons. From the infamous NullReferenceException to a database query timeout.
