Functional Safety Forum 2015

Intland Blog - Tue, 07/07/2015 - 11:00
IEC 61508 is the mother of all standards for functional safety. Many standards including ISO 13849, ISO 26262 or IEC 61511 are derived from IEC 61508. These standards are relatively complex but they need to be used in practice, no matter how complex

Microservices and HTTP/2 By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Containers #Microservices

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

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

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.

Keep CALM and Embrace DevOps – Sharing | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - 5 hours 53 min ago
In this final blog on the DevOps CALMS model, we end on S for Sharing. Now I have to be honest, the first time I saw the CALMS model I initially questioned whether ‘Sharing' was really needed. I mean, surely with the right ‘Culture', then this would ensure sharing anyway? Even in my blog on culture I mentioned the need to shift from organizational silos to a collaborative model - which must include sharing, right? Well yes it does, but sharing (or collaboration) is really the core value of DevOps adoption. Without sharing, you can forget about having the right culture, your employees accepting automation, embracing Lean and having measurements that work. This is how important Sharing and collaboration is to DevOps success.

[slides] IoT Middleware for a Faster Time to Market By @robomq | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #InternetOfThings

Internet of Things (IoT) will be a hybrid ecosystem of diverse devices and sensors collaborating with operational and enterprise systems to create the next big application. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Bramh Gupta, founder and CEO of robomq.io, and Fred Yatzeck, principal architect leading product development at robomq.io, discussed how choosing the right middleware and integration strategy from the get-go will enable IoT solution developers to adapt and grow with the industry, while at the same time reduce Time to Market (TTM) by using plug and play capabilities offered by a robust IoT middleware platform.

Breaking Down IT Silos By @Jut_Inc | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can only work if the underlying analytics platform is flexible and powerful enough to handle the various workflows of the organization. Come hear how we've solved this.

Go All the Way with Agile By @Anders_Wallgren | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/04/2015 - 18:30
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations. Teams – then teams of teams – have streamlined processes, improved feedback loops and driven a much faster pace into IT departments which have had profound effects on the entire organization. In his session at DevOps Summit, Anders Wallgren, Chief Technology Officer of Electric Cloud, will discuss how DevOps and Continuous Delivery have emerged to help connect development with IT operations (mainly through the introduction of Automation) to support and amplify agility, responsiveness and faster time to market throughout the software delivery lifecycle.

Migrate Data from Legacy to Cloud By @WayneLam888 | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/04/2015 - 14:45
As virtualized and cloud systems are so prevalent and integral to data storage, the need to migrate data from a legacy storage system to a virtual or cloud-based one is inevitable. But, here’s the rub: migrating data is a lot harder than you might think, despite all the marketing noise about smooth transitions, ease-of-use, and turnkey solutions. While the term ‘cloud’ means many things to many people, I believe it refers to a large-scale virtualized data center that has numerous clusters of VMware or other hypervisor host servers connected to a SAN storage farm with petabytes of data.

User Experience Drives DevOps Focus By @Lounibos | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 07/03/2015 - 22:15
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.

IFTTT and the Internet of Things | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 07/03/2015 - 20:00
IFTTT stands for the conditional statement "If this then that'. It is a web based service with a simple workflow. Flow of work (action, that) is created by a trigger based on a condition(this), like say,'If it rains take the umbrella'. This service was provided in some cases, such as the various financial services that you could get an email if your chosen stock price reached a new high, etc. They were called alerts and they are also used by banks and credit card companies.
