Languages for 2017 | @DevOpsSummit @AppDynamics #DevOps #JavaScript

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)

The Best Programming Languages | @CloudExpo #IoT #AI #API #Java #Python

Five of the Best Programming Languages and Frameworks for a Small Business Choosing a programming framework for a small business can be overwhelming- there are so many. Here are a few of the best choices, to help you get started. Ask a room of ten developers which programming framework is the ‘best on the market,' and you're liable to receive ten different answers. Each developer will sing the praises of a different language, and each one will very probably feel that theirs is the only logical choice. The most confusing thing, though? Each and every one of those developers will be correct. Wait, what? I'll be blunt: there is no universal programming framework. The language your organization should work with - whether it's for web development, mobile development, or traditional development - depends entirely on your unique situation. The perfect choice for one busine... (more)

[session] Open Source Tool Chains for Continuous Testing | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousTesting

Open Source Tool Chains for Continuous Testing The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyor belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are moved from one stage to the next only after they have been tested and approved to continue. New code submitted to the repository is tested upon commit. When tests fail, the code is rejected. Subsystems are approved as part of periodic builds on their way to the delivery stage, where the system is being tested as production ready.... (more)

IoT Network Visibility | @ThingsExpo @SolarWinds #IoT #IIoT #M2M #API

Why Network Visibility Beyond the Firewall Is Critical in the IoT Era In the hybrid IT era, complexity is the name of the game. In fact, according to the recent SolarWinds IT Trends Report 2017, IT professionals report the number one challenge of hybrid IT is increased infrastructure complexity. Accelerating complexity is just one challenge in how hybrid IT is affecting IT departments. Internet of things (IoT) implementations are a great example of one more unexpected, emerging technology IT teams must address. In the report, IT professionals reported the second greatest challenge of hybrid IT is lack of control and visibility into the performance of cloud-based applications and infrastructure. Most IoT devices connect to cloud back ends or edge/fog-distributed endpoints, rather than traditional data centers. Distributed workloads by their nature put admins in a bind,... (more)

Java vs. Python: Which One Is Best for You? | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Java #Python

Java vs. Python: Which One Is Best for You? By Kevlin Henney Few questions in software development are more divisive or tribal than choice of programming language. Software developers often identify strongly with their tools of choice, freely mixing objective facts with subjective preference. The last decade, however, has seen an explosion both in the number of languages used in production and the number of languages an individual developer is likely to employ day to day. That means that language affiliations are sometimes spread more loosely and broadly across different codebases, frameworks, and platforms. Modern projects and modern developers are increasingly polyglot—able to draw on more languages and libraries than ever before. Informed choice still has a part to play. From that bustling bazaar of programming languages, let’s narrow our focus to two survivor... (more)
