everyone claims to be able to deal with real-time big data and get the
most out of the data you have.
In most of these applications, you have to deal with evented data which comes...
In the last week I was working on a key project to migrate a BI platform from MySQL to MongoDB. The product that its development is headed by Yuval Leshem is gaining a major adaption and the company was facing a scale challenge. We chose MongoDB as the platform data infrastructure to support high data insert rate and scale data analysis.
Unlike many projects of this type, we accomplished the...
You’re a big company, and you want to do what Google do for DevOps in order to get to Continuous Delivery (CD)? Beware the price of admission.
In this article, I’m going to outline the importance or addressing your company’s source-control use before diving too far into CD. Specifically, I’m suggesting that you should decide whether your enterprise should do Trunk Based Development (TBD)...

When I was a young software programmer, I had to develop features with estimates given by more senior programmers. If more time was required for the task, I had to explain the reasons – and I’d better be convincing about that. After some years, I became the one who had to provide feature estimates, but this did no mean it was easier: if the development team took more time to develop, I had to...
Most of us who develop with Java are generally enthusiastic for the features and improvements that come withJDK 8. However, there have been several recent posts that have pointed out some features that can be misused and abused and might lead to some additional issues in the future.

When I first met Mule there was a thing that made me feel a little bit discouraged. There was only residual information about best practices on how to develop Mule applications and even less advice on how to effectively test them. All Mule examples provided here and there on the Internet are presented in a deploy-click-check if works manner. Next thing...
As applications that use Hibernate or any ORM frameworks grow complex, lots of performance issues don't get enough attention until it is too late. This article accounts for SLA time as part of the junits and allows developers to think in terms of calculating the number of calls hibernate is going to make in the background. This allows for developers to deal with facts rather than...

DevOps is not a process or a tool – but there are a number of processes in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) that affect both traditional development and operations staff. All of these components can be optimized, and all of them can then be...
Nowadays everyone is agile. Or at least they say. Most
organisations use Scrum. Or they claim to do it, while still doing
waterfall. But why is the industry so focused on Scrum? What happened to
eXtreme Programming? Why did we loose the XP practices? Is it too

Getting into Flow[Con] with Gene Kim and Jez Humble
What happens when you bring together practitioners from all corners of the software development arena, put them in a room, and discuss hardware and software scaling, what your ops teams should (and shouldn’t) do, how not to fool yourself again, how to delight your customers, how to tune your feedback cycles, how to get the executive staff to...

Cloud-based collaboration tools are becoming more and more popular. From instant messaging to file and document management,
from video conferencing to remote access, from collaborative
mind-mapping to knowledge sharing, and everything in between, there’s
most possibly a cloud-based app you can try.
