The Most Popular Programming Languages for 2017 By Jordan Bach It’s hard to believe that it’s already 2017. But with the new year comes new challenges, new opportunities—and, of course—new software projects. One of the most important questions beginner, intermediate, and advanced coders all have to answer before they begin their next project is which programming language to use. Instead of reaching for an old favorite, pause for a moment to consider the options. There are no perfect languages, so it’s important to take the time to understand the tradeoffs. When you decide on a language, you also determine what libraries and tools you have at your disposal, the pool of candidates you can hire, the availability of documentation, and much more. In this article, we examine the top programming languages from leading industry sources to help you make an informed decision ... (more)

[slides] @Docker Deployments | @DevOpsSummit @JPetazzo #SDN #DevOps

Orchestrating Distributed Deployments with Docker and Containers Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism - which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of being reserved to the largest, most complex application stacks. But those architectures bring a new set of challenges. Breaking down an application into many smaller components means that each individual piece is simpler and easier to reason with; but now we need something to tie all thos... (more)

DevOps Five Years Later at @DevOpsSummit | #DevOps #APM #Microservices

DevOps Five Years Later: What Does the Future Hold? After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns' are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done', or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists looked back at what DevOps has become, and forward at what it might create next. Panelist Bios: Randy De Meno joined Commvault in 1994 and initiated Commvault's direction into the heterogeneous Data Management segment of the industry. Randy holds dozens patents on a number of CommVault's technologies including the Granular Ap... (more)

Apache #Hadoop and #BigData Standards | @CloudExpo #IoT #M2M #BI #ML

Making Apache Hadoop Less Retro: Bringing Standards to Big Data Ten short years ago, Apache Hadoop was just a small project deployed on a few machines at Yahoo and within a few years, it had truly become the backbone of Yahoo's data infrastructure. Additionally, the current Apache Hadoop market is forecasted to surpass $16 billion by 2020. This might lead you to believe that Apache Hadoop is currently the backbone of data infrastructures for all enterprises; however, widespread enterprise adoption has been shockingly low. While the platform is a key technology for gaining business insights from organizational Big Data, its penetration into enterprises has not lived up to Hadoop's game-changing business potential. In fact, according to Gartner, "Despite considerable hype and reported successes for early adopters, 54 percent of survey respondents report no plans to inv... (more)

Bouncy Castle and Encryption | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #SDN #AI #ML #DL

In September 2014, Apple made encryption default with the introduction of the iPhone 6. Then, in February 2016, a Los Angeles judge issued an order to Apple to help break into the encrypted iPhone belonging to a terrorist involved in a mass shooting. Apple had used some of the strongest encryption technologies and practices to protect its users and their data. The encryption technology did not discriminate between lawful and unlawful users. While there were many sides to this issue, it surfaced many important debates on security, privacy, and civil rights. Peekaboo For developers wanting to add cryptographic libraries to their applications, a number of open source components are available to them. Of course, anyone seeking to add encryption to an application has an important requirement for the privacy and security it provides. One of the more popular choices for e... (more)

Open Source and Enterprise #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #CD #Microservices

Using Open Source to Scale Enterprise DevOps By Patrick Bishop I’m a huge fan of open source DevOps tools. I’m also a huge fan of scaling open source tools for the enterprise. But having talked with my fair share of companies over the years, one important thing I’ve learned is that you can’t scale your release process using open source tools alone. They simply require too much scripting and maintenance when used that way. Scripting may be fine for smaller organizations, but it’s not ok in an enterprise environment that includes many independent teams and tons of applications. You’ll end up with an unmanageable spaghetti factory. And who maintains those scripts? Your developers, some of the most talented and expensive folks in your organization. This is bad for the company, of course, but also for developers, who are much happier building code than doing maintenance ... (more)
