[video] Innovate a Platform | @CloudExpo @ReadyTalk #IoT #RTC #WebRTC

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 11/30/2016 - 15:15
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and more than a decade of web conferencing product development to start a project that reflects shifts in customer needs, cloud, dev tools, web standards, enterprise mobility and video. He covered the upsides, downsides and learnings in terms of investment, resource allocation, talent retention and technical considerations.

Artificial Intelligence – Myth or Reality | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #DL #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 11/26/2016 - 23:45
Way back in 1969, as a kid, I watched a very interesting movie – “2001: A Space Odyssey”. It was a science fiction where a super intelligent computer program HAL is in-charge of a mission to Jupiter which also carries several astronauts. The program becomes rogue and tries to kill all the astronauts. The hero survives and manages to disable the program. There is a lot more to the plot, but the fight between human and computer is still vivid in my memory. In 1969, such a scenario looked possible. After all 32 years is a lot of time given the rate of our progress. We are now in 2016, and it appears that something similar may happen in next 32 years.

[whitepaper] Driving #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo @IBMSystems #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 22:15
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and on the other side, organizations that will find themselves as roadkill on the technology highway.

Angles of Agile | @DevOpsSummit #Agile #DevOps #CD #ContinuousDelivery

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 11/24/2016 - 22:00
Jumping on the Agile bandwagon might help, but only if done right. What makes a good Agile project and what makes a bad one? The move to Agile in the last decade has resulted in projects that finish faster, produce better software, and come in under budget. Look up any new, hot tech company and you'll find articles lauding their Agile philosophy. You might think that success is guaranteed if you get your team to commit the Agile Manifesto to memory. The problem with looking at this in a single dimension is that you're affected by survivor bias. As you research, you look at successful projects and the logical next step is to look at what makes them successful. The problem that plagues most people is that they never ask the opposite - the darker, but equally important question - what causes projects to fail?
