  • How to Maximize #SaaS Revenue with @_Anexia | @CloudExpo #BigData Tue, 28 Jun 2016 03:00:00 EDT
    SaaS companies can greatly expand revenue potential by pushing beyond their own borders. The challenge is how to do this without degrading service quality. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Adam Rogers, Managing Director at Anexia, discussed how IaaS providers with a global presence and both virtual and dedicated infrastructure can help companies expand their service footprint with low “go-to-market” costs.

  • One Size Does Not Fit All: Agile in the Public Sector | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #Agile #DevOps Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:30:00 EDT
    CollabNet has a long history helping the federal market build quality software at speed, including the Department of Defense (DoD), which is, believe it or not, one of the most active software developers in the world. Federal software needs range widely — from military and defense systems, to communications, command and control and operations — so you can imagine how complex the development and delivery processes have become. With so many layers of DoD software development, corralling the systems into a manageable workflow is an enormous task, and that’s where Forge.mil comes in.

  • [slides] DevOps in a Heterogeneous World | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #Agile #DevOps Mon, 27 Jun 2016 12:00:00 EDT
    Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor – all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organizations must focus on what is most relevant to deliver value, reduce IT complexity, create more repeatable agile-based processes and leverage increasingly secure and stable, cloud-based infrastructure platforms.

  • Four Key Takeaways for Application Performance and Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps Mon, 27 Jun 2016 08:45:00 EDT
    Designing for performance is absolutely essential; but runtime is so crazy a variable that we can reasonably blame too-early optimization for a non-negligible chunk of lousy UX and unmaintainable code. The latest Guide to Performance and Monitoring covers both the static and dynamic, the verifiable and the unknowable sides of building and maintaining performant applications.

  • [video] IBM's Hybrid Approach to Hybrid Cloud | @CloudExpo @IBM @SoftLayer #Cloud #DevOps Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:00:00 EDT
    What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.

  • BMC Introduces MainView for Java Environments Enabling a Transaction Engine for Digital Business Tue, 03 May 2016 08:04:00 EDT
    BMC has announced MainView for Java Environments. This integrated systems management solution provides complete insight into how Java is consuming resources and affecting application performance on the modern mainframe. In the race to thrive as a digital business and to gain a competitive advantage, organizations are increasingly looking to Java for z/OS® to quickly develop applications. With the demand for instant service, always-available, high-performing applications, it is not surprising that 93 percent of mainframe organizations in a BMC survey said Java usage is growing or steady, and Java is the language of choice for writing new or rewriting existing mainframe applications. However, Java workloads can affect performance and availability on the mainframe, as they consume system resources without regard for the needs of other applications or services. An integrated management approach allows IT Operations a holistic view of the environment to quickly and easily discover Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) and to manage the effect of their resource consumption on application performance.

  • Implementing the Mediator Design Pattern in Angular 2 By @YFain | @CloudExpo #Cloud Wed, 30 Mar 2016 09:00:00 EDT
    In any component-based framework you’ll need to implement component communications. The main principle is that components should be loosely coupled hence reusable hence testable. The mediator design pattern allows you to arrange component communications via “the man in the middle” so a component A never communicates with the component B directly. If a component needs data, someone will provide the data via bindings to the component’s input properties. Who’s this someone?Ain’t no business of the component. If a component needs to provide some data to the external world, it’ll emit events (with the data payload). Emits to whom? Ain’t no business of the component. Let whoever needs the data listen to the events from this component.

  • Frustrated by JavaScript? By @YFain | @CloudExpo #Cloud Fri, 19 Feb 2016 12:30:00 EST
    I decide to write this blog after reading this post of a frustrated developer (he goes by the nick pistacchio) who couldn’t create a simple single-page application (SPA) in JavaScript in several days. Typically frustration is a result of unmet expectations and this is the case here as well. If pistachio would decide to create a simple app using the JavaScript framework he already knew, he could achieve his goal in 2-3 days allocated for this job. The problem is that he decided to achieve two goals:

  • Angular 2: Passing Data to Routes By @YFain | @ThingsExpo #IoT Fri, 29 Jan 2016 17:00:00 EST
    In the previous blog I did a high-level overview of Angular 2 router and wrote a basic routing application that demonstrated displaying different components in a predefined area of the window. We often need not only display a component, but also pass some data to it. For example, if we navigate from the Home to the Product Detail route we need to pass the product ID to the destination route. Angular offers a directive RouteParams so a route can receive data from the parent component. There is also a RouteData directive that can be used to pass additional data to a route from the @RouteConfig section. I’ll illustrate the use of both directives by modifying the app from the previous blog.
