Martin Fowler recently released another article on microservices,
specifically about the hype surrounding them. He states that though
microservices are a hot topic right now, they add unnecessary complexity
to systems that would do just fine with a single monolithic application
built with good modularity.
While I agree with his point that microservices do add complexity,
especially when it...

Unless you have been living in a remote cave for the past two years, you will have noticed that the Internet of Things is now on the top of every CIO’s agenda. When I posted my first blog on the IoT in 2013, IoT had relatively low media coverage and then boom, it has become the must have IT strategy of the decade.
This year on June 30th at 23:59:59 UTC, rather than the 59th second ticking to 00, there is an additional second added so clocks will tick to 60 before going to 00.If this sounds rather odd, check out a more detailed explanation here on Wikipedia.

From time to time I do a Clean Code Workshop for coworkers or customers. A large part of these workshops deals with legacy code. I always start with the Ugly Trivia Game by J. B. Rainsberger, which actually isn’t by him, but I use his version anyway. While it is a great resource it gets boring after you have reviewed, tested, refactored, tested it some more and reviewed the tests and...

In this model, a database deployment (for example) can be instantiated independently from other tiers. The other tiers can come and go independently of the database. Cloudify has no built in capability to express such a model, but the flexible plugin architecture makes it rather simple to...

They discussed Sam's initial focus, his goals and the vision for Cloud Foundry as well as the impact Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) has for businesses. Below is a recording of the entire Fireside Chat and notable quotes...
As developers, we are always looking for a better, faster way of doing things. Whenever I am learning a new language that typically runs in an IDE, then I begin to look for ways to test code snippets through either the Terminal for Mac or the command prompt on Windows. Swift is no exception. As I’ve been working more and more with this language, I’ve uncovered four ways to quickly...

[This article was written by Dritan Suljoti]Imagine you had my day this past weekend. Imagine that your wife likes to shop for clothes online, and really loves both Nordstrom and HauteLook, but since it’s difficult to gauge how something will fit, she likes to order multiple sizes and have her husband return the extras to the store.
Written by Andreas DharmawanWith the proliferation of IoT and connected devices, many traditional manufacturing companies find themselves now needing to become software companies – expanding their focus from production of physical goods, to infusing software into their products. This complexity of integrating software, hardware, firmware and physical components requires an evolution...
This week we are starting the Data Virtualization Primer which I am splitting into 3 series - The Basics, The Connectors and the Solutions. My goal is to publish one or two articles a week, each one covering a topic that can be reviewed in a short amount of time. Demos and examples will be included and some of the topics will be broken into multiple parts to help easily digest...
A year ago when Bluemix was first released in beta it was marketed
as a word class enterprise platform-as-a-service in the public cloud.
Over the past year Bluemix has evolved in many ways, but two of them

Python is really a language which has swept the scene in recent years in terms of popularity, elegance, and functionality. Research shows that 8 out 10 computer science departments in the U.S. now teach their introductory courses with Python, surpassing Java. Top-ranked CS departments at MIT and UC Berkeley have switched their introductory courses to Python. And the top three MOOC providers (edX, Coursera, and Udacity) all offer introductory programming courses in Python. Not to mention, Python is known to have an easy syntax that makes learning much more tolerable, and it scales up easily – especially in cloud-based environments.
The launch of the Shopify IPO on the NYSE is a leap forward and a testimony tothe high quality of the Canadian technology sector. In its first trading day, Shopify was oversubscribed by 51%
As a solution-focused company, for us it’s a day of pride and tribulations to see a fellow technology company launching a successful IPO on one of the world’s greatest trading desks, Shopify, that started with humble beginnings, is one of the latest IPO’s to hit the market that is both tech, and Canadian. As a Canadian company Shopifys IPO success is a testimony to Canada being a breeding ground for world-class software companies. Shopifys and its solutions are not new to the industry, but the culmination of the right solution at the right time and a lot of hard work is evident from their success. Today, Shopify’s ecommerce platform serves the needs of over 165,000 merchants.
It's time to face reality: "Americans are from Mars, Europeans are from Venus," and in today's increasingly connected world, understanding "inter-planetary" alignments and deviations is mission-critical for cloud.
