[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.

[session] Winning Federal Cloud Business Through FedRAMP By @AbelSussman | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 07/28/2015 - 17:00
The Federal Government’s “Cloud First” policy mandates that agencies take full advantage of cloud computing benefits to maximize capacity utilization, improve IT flexibility and responsiveness, and minimize cost. The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a mandatory government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. Advantages for business include being able to market to many federal agencies after a single FedRAMP review following the government’s “approve once, and use often” approach.

[slides] The New Internet of Things Standard | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 07/28/2015 - 16:15
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply with multiple different standards is removed and developers can create any app for any device using any data format.

Windows Server 2003 - I'm Late, I'm Late, for a Very Important Date! | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 07/26/2015 - 21:00
Windows Server 2003 End of Support is here and there is little most enterprises can do at this point to change the fact that they are now dependent on an unsupported operating system. Here we are at Microsoft's World Wide Partner Conference again, muttering "I'm late, I'm late," just like the herald-like white rabbit of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, (We have a cool White Rabbit twitter campaign going this week - check it out) except that we cannot manipulate time. This is the event where, last year, there were many sessions highlighting processes, tools and partner ecosystem to help companies migrate off of Windows Server 2003. Analysts, the media and Microsoft were talking in terms of close to 20 million machines in production still running Windows Server 2003. Back then, the opportunity was characterized as a Y2K situation that would result in as much as 45 billion dollars spent helping to remediate this event.

Unlock $11 Trillion IoT Value By @EsmeSwartz | @ThingsExpo #API #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 07/26/2015 - 16:15
Last week’s #IoTuesday Twitter chat focused on the impact of the API economy on Internet of Things (IoT) as it transforms from Connected Devices to Connected Marketplaces. And IoT in turn creates the API economy. We had great participation from respected industry visionaries who share a view that APIs and API management, standards and interoperability play a critical role in the creation of IoT marketplaces. These days, there is not an industry or a consumer that is not familiar with the concept of IoT, whether from their view of the clichéd smart fridge to the impact of the Industrial Internet. It doesn’t matter what your business does or which industry you are serving. It also does not matter if you are a startup or an established enterprise with years of experience and a customer base in the 100s or 1000s. You should be asking yourself.

[session] Past, Present & Future of Container Deployment By @BCantrill | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 07/26/2015 - 15:00
Unbeknownst to some, organizations have run infrastructure containers in production for years, reaping benefits on the operational end but not yet providing value for developers. When Docker catapulted containers into mainstream adoption, another type of container emerged — one that’s enormously popular for developers, but not quite ready for Ops. It’s time to close the gap between the promise that Devs see in containers and the operational challenges of actually running them in production. In his session at DevOps Summit, Bryan Cantrill, CTO at Joyent, will demonstrate a third path: containers on multi-tenant bare metal that maximizes performance, security, and networking connectivity.
