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

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 03/25/2017 - 05:15
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 However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.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.

JavaScript Errors | @DevOpsSummit @Dynatrace #JavaScript #AI #WebPerf

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 03/24/2017 - 21:00
These days we are moving more and more logic towards the user into the browser to achieve higher performance and better user experience. There are Single Page Application frameworks like AngularJS, React, Ember and others supporting this trend. If it works, everything is fine. But with this trend a JavaScript error can become a website killer. What does this mean? Below you can see the same page twice, but depending on the browser used, you get a product list from which you can make a selection…or NOT! The difference is the result of a simple JavaScript error!

Blockchain: Byzantine Generals and Achieving Consensus | @CloudExpo #Cloud #FinTech #Blockchain

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 03/24/2017 - 16:30
When discussing disruptive technologies, the topic of blockchain inevitably enters the conversation. Gartner recently listed blockchain as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ Approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just this year, according to PwC executive Seamus Cushley. IBM announced this week a Blockchain-as-a-Service Enterprise offering at their Interconnect Conference. While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is being taken very seriously across industries and cannot be ignored.

It’s Time to Tear Down Silos for Agile Release Management | @DevOpsSummit #Agile #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 03/24/2017 - 15:00
To make sure we’re on the same page, let’s start by defining what we mean by a silo. “They are nothing more than barriers… between departments… causing people… to work against each other.” -Patrick Lencioni in 'Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars' Thanks to the work of Lencioni we have a good framework for understanding the differences in performance of small and large teams within complex organizations.

A Hybrid Data Pipeline | @CloudExpo @ProgressSW #BigData #AI #DataLake

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 03/23/2017 - 21:15
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. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sumit Sarkar, Product Marketing Engineer at Progress, will discuss how the key to delivering on this was using standard interfaces using a bi-directional data pipeline to connect the systems. On the Salesforce side, we were able to get frictionless access to the data lake using clicks-not-code via OData. On the Hadoop side, we were able to ingest data from Salesforce using JDBC for Apache Sqoop. Join us to hear best practices and lessons learned.

Technology for a Cashless Society | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Sensors

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 03/23/2017 - 16:30
I happened to be in India last November when prime minister Modi announced the demonetization program, where 86% of the currency in the form of two paper bills (Rs. 500 and 1000 denomination) were made defunct. People were given time to deposit their existing currencies in the bank. Those who had unusually high volume of such currencies were supposed to declare the legal source or face stiff penalties such as 60-75% tax. The goal was to catch the money hoarders and black marketers who avoid paying taxes on such undeclared money.

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. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures.

Five Steps to #MeteorJS Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit @Sematext #JavaScript

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 10:30
Meteor is a full-stack JavaScript platform for developing modern web and mobile applications. It includes developer tools, websockets, MongoDB integration, and a package manager. Atmosphere.js is the Meteor package manager. Unfortunately, it doesn’t list many Meteor monitoring solutions. Luckily, thanks to the Meteor npm integration, it is possible to use npm packages for monitoring Meteor apps with npm based monitoring solutions, such as SPM for Node.js monitoring. SPM for Node.js collects key Node.js metrics such as Event Loop, Garbage Collection, CPU, Memory and web services metrics. All metrics are organized in out-of-the-box charts, which can be put on additional dashboards and placed next to performance charts for other parts of the application stack and their logs for doing metric-logs correlations.

How to Turn Your Microwave into a Camera | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Security

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 03/21/2017 - 17:00
You can turn a microwave into a camera and I’ll teach you how in a minute, but before I do, let me share this news item. In a recent interview with a reporter from the Bergen Record, Kellyanne Conway was asked about surveillance. She responded: “There are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately. There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”

[session] Docker and VM | @DevOpsSummit #VM #AI #DevOps #Serverless

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 03/21/2017 - 11:45
Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one technically superior to the other? What about performance and security? Does IT need either one, or both?

Hybrid Cloud Security: Part 3 | @CloudExpo #SDN #API #SaaS #Cybersecurity

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 03/20/2017 - 21:45
In the first article of this three-part series on hybrid cloud security, we discussed the Shared Responsibility Model, and examined how the most common attack strategies persist, are amplified, or are mitigated as assets move from data centers to the cloud. In part two, we talked about the unique security challenges that are introduced by public cloud environments. In this third and final installment, we’ll review why it’s essential to approach hybrid cloud security with different methods, tools and best practices than those used in the data center.

7 Spices of #ContinuousDelivery Pipeline | @DevOpsSummit #CD #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 03/19/2017 - 05:00
A Continuous Delivery pipeline as part of an Agile transformation is like spices in a meal. Without them, the food is bland and worthless. On the other hand, the right blend of spices will leave you craving more, stimulating your senses and energizing you. But as any good cook will tell you, it can be a bit difficult to find the exact right blend of spices for a specific dish.
