  • WebRTC and CloudRTC Platforms | @ThingsExpo [#IoT #WebRTC] Sun, 19 Apr 2015 01:30:00 EDT
    Disruption in the communications ecosystem is creating a market opportunity for Cloud Real-Time Communications (RTC) platforms. We expect this market to represent a $4.5 billion opportunity by 2018. Cloud RTC Platforms are cloud services that enable mobile and web developers to integrate communications into their applications with just a few lines of code. Via REST APIs and SDKs Cloud RTC Platforms enable developers to easily integrate voice, messaging and video calling into mobile and web applications supporting more contextual conversations. These tools have the potential to change in how we interact with each other in the future.

  • Sailing the Great Big Data Lakes | @CloudExpo [#BigData #IoT] Sat, 18 Apr 2015 13:00:00 EDT
    In my younger days (we won’t discuss how long ago that was) I decided to take up sailing. I had always been fascinated watching sailboats, gliding smoothly along the water, with nothing but wind as their engine. My first lesson on the water was an exhilarating and eye opening experience. The instructor took me out on a 17-foot day sailer. It was a brisk New England April afternoon, what seemed like a perfect day to be sailing. The instructor explained the different techniques and maneuvers required to traverse the lake, which I executed, though somewhat nervously. We were moving at what felt like breakneck speeds, constantly shifting and changing the position of the boat, adjusting the sail to the changing wind directions, while still heading in the desired direction. Suddenly, a gust of wind came from a completely unexpected direction. Before I fully realized what had happened, I found myself treading water, looking back at the day sailer, which was completely turtled (a term I learned that day) upside down in the water. My instructor, amazingly, was standing on top of the upside down boat, completely dry.

  • Keys to Success for Continuous Monitoring in Government | @CloudExpo [#Cloud] Sat, 18 Apr 2015 10:30:00 EDT
    In recent years, the US government has become a leading advocate for continuous monitoring of security threats and vulnerabilities. But how effectively are departments and agencies in implementing these programs? And how do we measure success? Moving Towards Continuous Monitoring Though it’s become a popular concept, continuous monitoring wasn’t always in vogue. When the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) was enacted in 2002, the law required agencies to document security practices, including taking inventory of information systems and writing security plans. External firms would audit the plans and grade departments and agencies based on their efforts.

  • Agile Release Management By @Plutora | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps] Sat, 11 Apr 2015 08:30:00 EDT
    Over on the other side of the fence IT ops are screaming at the various portfolio dev teams for releasing highly risky functionality way too frequently but since the Agile dev adoption production has only had a couple of low priority P4 incidents caused by bad code releases. Things must be looking good with the new dev process but then a few months down the track BAM a P1 incident the Monday morning after a agile delivered release is deployed. Highly important business functionality is broken in one of the downstream systems. It's all hands to the pump and both IT dev and IT Ops team are getting frustrated with each other trying to resolve the incident holding back blame on which side of the fence caused the incident. A few hours later all fixed and the communication goes out to the business that prod incident is resolved.

  • Partying with IntelliJ IDEA Dart, Java, WebSocket and Glassfish Thu, 09 Apr 2015 12:00:00 EDT
    Recently I wrote a blog showing how to use the WebSocket protocol to push the data from a Java server to a JavaScript client. This time I’ll keep the same code on the server, but the client will be written in Dart. For this example I was using GlassFish 4.1 server, and IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 with installed Dart plugin. I also have Dart 1.9.1 SDK. My goal was to create one Web application deployable module that would contain both Java and Dart code. I’ll be brief assuming the the reader has some familiarity with IntelliJ IDEA IDE and the structure of Dart projects. Repeating the same exercise in Eclipse IDE should be a trivial task too.

  • It's the Java vs. C++ Shootout Revisited! Tue, 07 Apr 2015 19:00:00 EDT
    Are we just looking, or looking to see what we can improve? It's surprising that programmers are happy to quarrel about performance without trying to improve the programs. As programmers we know that small changes in the way an algorithm is implemented can make a difference, and this is one more opportunity to show our skill.

  • Node.js Performance Tips You Can Adopt Today Mon, 06 Apr 2015 03:22:00 EDT
    We’ve all heard about the rapid adoption of JavaScript in recent years. To summarize, JavaScript is the #1 most-used language on GitHub and it looks like this trend will continue. In fact, as one article put it, “JavaScript is the number one language in the world; it’s the language of the web, and a starting point for so many new developers . . .” One of the major reasons behind the rapid adoption JavaScript has been the influence of Node.js. Node.js is a software platform used for building fast, scalable network applications. It’s based on Google’s V8 JavaScript engine, or the Chrome browser runtime, and has gained immense popularity among major enterprises in recent years.
