Positive Technology Disruption By @ABridgwater | @CloudExpo [#IoT #Cloud]

Java Developer's Journal - 2 hours 26 min ago
The list of ‘new paradigm’ technologies that now surrounds us appears to be at an all time high. From cloud computing and Big Data analytics to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT), today we have to deal with what the industry likes to call ‘paradigm shifts’ at every level of IT. This is disruption; of course, we understand that – change is almost always disruptive.

Keep CALM And Embrace DevOps – Automation | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - 7 hours 41 min ago
For me the mantra of achieving speed via automation tools is nothing new. In fact I was ‘automating’ Citrix Metaframe builds using windows scripting techniques back in 2004. The market though, has become awash with different automation products and it’s fair to say that many enterprises now suffer from ‘automation sprawl’. This results in a tactical rather than the strategic approach to automation required, meaning that benefits are never fully realized. In fact, I have spoken to many companies for which the word ‘automation’ leaves a bitter taste in the mouth as they have been burned by failed implementations.

Internet of Things Microservices | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - 10 hours 41 min ago
An explosive combination of technology trends will be where ‘microservices’ and the IoT Internet of Things intersect, a concept we can describe by comparing it with a previous theme, the ‘X Internet.' The idea of using small self-contained application components has been popular since XML Web services began and a distributed computing future of smart fridges and kettles was imagined long back in the early Internet years.

Integrate Network Services By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 20:45
Polymorphism is a concept central to object-oriented programming. The notion of polymorphism is used to extend the capabilities of a basic object, like a mammal, to specific implementations, like cats or dogs or honey badgers, even though they don't care about such technical distinctions. A good example of this is cats and dogs, which are both of the type "mammal" but that "speak" in a different voice.

Use a Liberty JAAS login module for Bluemix single sign-on

This tutorial provides a technique for Liberty-aware authentication with the Bluemix SSO service. Create a sample app that uses the Bluemix SSO service for user login; the Liberty server creates all necessary objects (Subject, Principal, Session) upon successful authentication. A Liberty app can obtain Bluemix SSO capabilities using JAAS authentication with the SSO service so that your authentication mechanism is abstracted from application code.

DevOps and Cloud By @AndiMann | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 03/22/2015 - 18:00
Cloud computing started a technology revolution; now DevOps is driving that revolution forward. By enabling new approaches to service delivery, cloud and DevOps together are delivering even greater speed, agility, and efficiency. No wonder leading innovators are adopting DevOps and cloud together! In his session at DevOps Summit, Andi Mann, Vice President of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies, explored the synergies in these two approaches, with practical tips, techniques, research data, war stories, case studies, and recommendations on how to: Embrace, source, consume, and expose shared services across the SDLC Apply automation lessons from the cloud to deliver 'software-defined everything' Accelerate time from ideation to release for new applications and services Drive service efficiency and scalability while better managing cost and risk Establish more effective feedback loops, from pre-planning to post-production Secure rapid access to cloud infrastructure, platform, and software services Whether you are a startup or an enterprise; using private cloud, public cloud, or no cloud; an Agile n00b or a DevOps pro; struggling with core banking systems, or building a new social/local/mobile app that will change the world (!); this session provides actionable ideas on using cloud and DevOps together to revolutionize your software and service delivery lifecycle.
