DevOps and Hybrid Infrastructure Synergy By @Kevin_Jackson | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 04/07/2016 - 14:45
The definition of DevOps emphasizes collaboration and communication between software developers and other IT professionals while automating the software delivery and infrastructure change process. While agile software development and the use of automated infrastructure configuration tools stand proudly in the DevOps spotlight, little has been said about the actual infrastructure that modern tools such as Puppet and Chef automate.

Lifeguards Use Drones? | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 04/07/2016 - 13:00
Drones have actually been around for quite some time, even though the recent "lift-off" of commercial applications has vaulted the technology further into the spotlight. I've started seeing some incredible uses of the technology and how not only businesses will benefit, but people as well. For example, lifeguards and emergency responders have started flying drones as another means to quickly assist swimmers in trouble. By dropping a life jacket as soon as possible, distressed swimmers can get assistance quickly while further assistance is in pursuit of reaching the swimmer in the water. In the same vein, another reason lifeguards are flying drones is to identify and monitor other threats to beachgoers such as sharks. This will lead into drones enabling automatic warning systems when sharks get closer to the swim zones, and warn lifeguards to deploy means to both repel sharks and notify others in the surrounding area.

Microservices and Legacy Apps | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 04/05/2016 - 08:30
Microservices architecture enables flexible architecture and speeds up your development process. But, often people are confused as to where to start. The obvious choice is to use a microservice architecture for all new applications. However, you have a ton of time and money invested in legacy applications. Applications that handle your user authentication and access to your company's core products and services should be rewritten. You should definitely leverage those legacy applications to get to microservices faster. And, you can do it without changing your existing Database Schema.

The 'Big' Fallacy of Big Data | @BigDataExpo #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 04/02/2016 - 16:15
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years, you've been hearing about the world of Big Data nonstop. Big Data promises fortune and power to those that can wield the somewhat mystical and often nebulous power of "Big Data". Unfortunately for the rest of us mere mortals Big Data is built on an out-right lie that is both pernicious and unfortunate. It's hiding right there in plain sight in the name itself. The word, BIG. The Fallacy of Big Data is that you have to have a lot of data for it to be relevant. The common catch phrase is: "More data = more insights". There is a nugget of truth to this in that, in some cases, a lot of data is needed in order to establish valid patterns and create real insight into the activity the data represents. More often than not however, this creates a significant challenge to those responsible for performing analytics which is sifting through a mountain of data to find the parts that actually matter. Recent studies have shown that fully 80% of data analysis is spent just tinkering with the data to get it into a usable format. So we see that more data creates a massive data curation issue, and leaves us with more work to do to even start experimenting, much less monetizing our data.
