User Experience Drives DevOps | @DevOpsSummit @CloudTest #DevOps #Jenkins #Containers

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/11/2015 - 13:30
I recently attended and presented at the east coast version of the Jenkins User Conference held this year in Washington, DC. The weather certainly fit the theme of the conference: The heat was continuous. The humidity was fully integrated with the heat. And, most importantly as you can see above, SWAG was out in full force. Right from the opening keynote by the founder of Jenkins, Kohsuke Kawaguchi, this conference was jam-packed with all the latest capabilities of Jenkins, including discussions around the new capabilities like workflow, and several sessions on Linux containers, micro-services, and, everyone’s favorite topic, DevOps.

Service Virtualization and Microservices By @PenningJe | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/11/2015 - 13:15
Microservices are individual units of executable code that work within a limited framework. They are extremely useful when placed within an architecture of numerous microservices. On June 24th, 2015 I attended a webinar titled “How to Share Share-Nothing Microservices,” hosted by Jason Bloomberg, the President of Intellyx, and Scott Edwards, Director Product Marketing for Service Virtualization at CA Technologies. The webinar explained how to use microservices to your advantage in order to deliver products that are competitive in the application economy.

Would Extra Funding Make Your Life as a DBA Easier? | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/11/2015 - 13:00
Database administrators are responsible for key tasks throughout the organization, including maintaining data performance and security, among plenty of other critical roles. With so many responsibilities and first-hand experience, DBAs have the pull to request funding for projects. Unfortunately, not all of these staff members are successful in earning such finances.

[slides] DevOps with Containers for Microservices By @SiRuslan | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/11/2015 - 12:45
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of DevOps with containers. In addition, he will discuss known issues and solutions for enterprise applications in containers.

What’s New in the World of Application Analytics By @MikeAnand | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #API #APM #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/11/2015 - 09:00
Software is eating the world. The more it eats, the bigger the mountain of data and wealth of valuable insights to digest and act on. Forward facing customer-centric IT organizations, leaders and professionals are looking to answer questions like how much revenue was lost today from platinum users not converting because they experienced poor mobile app performance. This requires a single, real-time pane of glass for end-to-end analytics covering business, customer, and IT operational data.

DevOps Insights into Conway’s Law By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/11/2015 - 01:00
The causality question behind Conway’s Law is less about how changing software organizations can lead to better software, but rather how companies can best leverage changing technology in order to transform their organizations. Hints at how to answer this question surprisingly come from the world of devops – surprising because the focus of devops is ostensibly on building and deploying better software more quickly. Be that as it may, there’s no question that technology change is a primary facilitator and driving force for the devops cultural and organizational shifts.

[slides] Optimize DevOps By @IsomorphicHQ | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 07/10/2015 - 20:45
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

[slides] WCaaS - [Who Cares?] as a Service at @CloudExpo New York By @KHazard | @SoftLayer

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 07/10/2015 - 18:15
In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftLayer, an IBM Company, breaks down the most commonly used industry buzzwords and discusses what each “aaS” is good for. No BS(aas).

DevOps 101 - Integration By @JoePruitt | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 07/10/2015 - 02:45
The second pillar in the DevOps stack is that of Integration. DevOps integration targets quality testing, feature development, and product delivery. Integration, or more specifically, Systems Integration is the process of linking together different computing or component systems and software applications physically or functionally to perform as a single consolidated unit. Systems integration requires a wide skill set in areas such as network architecture, protocols, systems, software engineering, documentation and communication. A DevOps Engineer needs to have a unique skill set that combines that of both the traditional software developer with that of the IT engineer. Typically DevOps engineers are either developers who get interested in the deployment process of their applications or system administrators who have a passion for scripting and software development.

The Emergence of Business Agility By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 07/09/2015 - 12:15
In my last Cortex newsletter, I discussed the history of Conway’s Law, and took a close look at how this erstwhile law can help us understand the reorganizations and deeper cultural shifts behind devops and digital transformation. The law – “any organization that designs a system will inevitably produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization’s communication structure” – is more of an observation of correlations between system designs and communication structures, rather than anything resembling a law.

[slides] How Microservices Extend #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #Docker #Containers #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 07/08/2015 - 22:00
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
