Written by David Green for the Tasktop Blog.
Developing and testing changes in an environment that is the same as the deployment environment is one of the magic ingredients of the DevOps way. For engineers at Tasktop working on the Integration Factory, provisioning a new VM can occur multiple times in a day, so any inefficiencies in...
If you’ve browsed a tech site recently (and chances are
you have if you’re reading this article), you’ve likely heard of Mobilegeddon.
No, Skynet isn’t launching, and as far as we know, there’s not an asteroid-sized smartphone on a collision course for earth.
If you’ve browsed a tech site...

MySQL and Scaling-up (using more powerful hardware) was always a hot topic. Originally MySQL did not scale well with multiple CPUs; there were times when InnoDB performed poorer with more CPU cores than with less CPU cores. MySQL 5.6 can scale significantly better; however there is still...
Continuing my previous post I want to discuss two important topics. First – how to understand that you become a real java developer and you are ready for your career start.
Primarily this article is written for my students but not closed for anyone who want to join 10per Check Point education methodology.

At long last, Android applications are moving away from Ant or IDE builds.
Written by Robert Sfeir for LeadingAgile .One of the principles of agile is to Deliver Working Software: Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale. What that principle doesn’t tell us is: who are we delivering the software to exactly? Of course the answer is (and should be) it...
Bazel has a feature that lets you see a graph of your build dependencies. It could help you debug things, but honestly it’s just really cool to see what your build is doing.
To try it out, you’ll need a project that uses Bazel to build. If you don’t have one handy, here’s a tiny workspace you can use:
Bazel has a feature...
WordPress kicks off our day by announcing release 4.2 “Powell”. So, if you are running WordPress, you need to update. Three good articles are highlighted in the security section. On Wired, they report on how the NSA “Quantum Insert” attacks work. Weblog Lexsi talks about Dyreza’s anticrypt. Lastly, Coding Horror goes on a rant about how our passwords need to be longer. The rant is...

I've always been missing possibility to configure custom headers in JStat. Of course there are a lot of predefined data sets, but it'll be nicer if we could create our own data set. And as you probably already devised I'm writing this post because such functionality is of course available :) Unfortunately I haven't found it in any documentation so now I'll try to fill this gap.

For years, quality assurance teams got acclimated to performing testing by hand, running each instance on the fly. However, with automation becoming a higher priority across organizations, the testers of today are starting to look a bit different than they did in waterfall development environments. Testers must be able to support these new agile operations, which means that they likely will need...
I’m super excited to announce that I just launched a brand new podcast for Python developers called Talk Python To Me. This weekly podcast already has the first episode published and some amazing guests lined up.

I’ve written many many times in this blog about Dialogue Sheets. On the whole I offer dialogue sheets as a retrospective technique. However they have other applications, for example:

I recently wrote about how Amazon’s new Dash service embodies the Stackato vision;
in that post I discussed how Dash reflects the Business Agility portion
of our vision. As the image to the left shows, Dash is a service that
offers a small button; when pressed, magic happens and an order is
placed for the product (in this example, Tide detergent), which is
eventually delivered to...
Whatever you make of self-help, and whether you take this to constitute a form of it or not, I here present the top-most three means that I found over the years to get productive. I believe they are the simplest, yet most effective, of all methods to be productive and efficient. But do not limit yourself to any, this offers but good start.
Productivity is certainly relative. For our purposes a...
This blog post continues my ongoing series on the Agrona library by explaining how we offer easy access to offheap memory for threadsafe operations. I should probably caveat before we move on that this is a fairly advanced topic and I don't attempt to explain concepts such as memory barriers - merely outline the features of the API.
I know the cloud is important, but why should I develop for it? What's new in the cloud? Is containerization something I should be utilizing? We're proud to announce the DZone Guide to Cloud Development, where we hope to answer these questions and many more.
