[slides] Big Data and the 'Internet of Things' By @CompTIA | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData #InternetOfThings

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 07/29/2015 - 23:00
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

Does Web Masking Kill Open Data? By @ABridgwater | @BigDataExpo #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 07/29/2015 - 19:30
Do the ‘darker’ channels and means that exist for searching the web in anonymity ultimately spell doom for the wider march towards open data? So-called ‘open data’ is supposed to be an instrument for breaking down information gaps across industries and letting companies share benchmarks and best practices that raise productivity – all information should be open and that should (theoretically) include granular data such as logs and users’ usage of websites (within the boundaries set by reasonable privacy concerns) and so on.

Effects of Omitting NODE_ENV in Express.js Apps By @DKhan | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 07/29/2015 - 16:00
Most developers learn best by examples, which naturally tend to simplify matters and omit things that aren’t essential for understanding. This means that the “Hello World” example, when used as starting point for an application, may be not suitable for production scenarios at all. I started using Node.js like that and I have to confess that it took me almost two years to quantify the huge performance impact of omitting a single environment variable. In fact it was just a coincidence that I even did it right in my previous projects.

[slides] The Speed of DevOps By @MHExcalibur | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 07/29/2015 - 04:00
The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow. In his session at DevOps Summit, Marc Hornbeek, Sr. Solutions Architect of DevOps continuous test solutions at Spirent Communications, explained the best practices of continuous testing at high scale, which is relevant to small scale DevOps, and if there is an expectation of growth as the number of build targets, test topologies and delivery topologies that need to be orchestrated rapidly grow.

IoT Is Busy Innovating, But Where’s the Integration? By @PaulSBruce | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 07/28/2015 - 21:00
The concept behind the Internet of Things has been around for a while now, ATMs being some of the first enterprise, hardened, network-connected, managed devices for mainstream consumer use. So too with our mobile phones, these are not new concepts to network technicians or hardware geeks. But for the rest of us, we simply never imagined the extents that the "ubiquity of connectedness" would take all other industries, from biotech to automotive, personal care to agriculture, entertainment to custom manufacturing. The list is as long as our imaginations.
