Craig Balding: The Belgian Beer Lovers Guide to Cloud Security

This slide presentation by Craig Balding is informative not only about Cloud security but about Belgian beer also. And I have to tip my hat to anyone who can do a full beer-themed presentation about Cloud security and not make a corny joke about "cloudy" beer. The slides are here: http://cloudsecurity.org/2009/09/21/slides-from-my-brucon-talk-the-belgian-beer-lovers-guide-to-cloud-security/ ... (more)

Master Class on Adobe Flex in Brussels and More

After teaching our popular advanced Flex master class in New York, Boston, Toronto, London, and Moscow, we are hitting the beer capital of the world: Brussels, Belgium. This class is scheduled for the first days of March, and we hope that Flex 4 will be officially released by this date. Our book Enterprise Development with Flex should hit the book stores by then too. To take advantage of the early bird prices register early at http://bit.ly/59DdIU. If you can't make it to Brussells, I'll be glad to meet with you at 360 Flex in San Jose, CA on March 7-10, where I'll be presenting on one of the topic from this master class. If you can't make it to San Jose, I'll be very happy to meet you at Flash and the City conference in May in New York City. Most likely I'll show you a really cool way of embedding a Flex application into a PDF file to be played by Acrobat Reader.... (more)

How I built a monitor for RabbitMQ

When you are going to monitor your engine, you probably try first to find some tool that can do it. Very likely, of course, that tool should be able to handle monitoring online and to notify you when the health of your engine is starting to go bad. There are already several well-known and widespread online monitoring tools available for many systems. Super! But what if I try to find a suitable tool for my specific application and… ohh, failure – I cannot find what I need. Unfortunately, it’s also very likely that no one can even suggest a suitable tool. What can I do in such a situation? Probably try to do it myself. Who can help me? You’ve probably already guessed that I am talking about Monitis.  You may ask “why Monitis?”  Because Monitis suggests Monitis Open API, and that gives you a chance to build any monitoring tool yourself. In line with Monitis slang, such... (more)

Questions to Ask When Evaluating Server Provisioning Tools | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Note: Originally Posted to www.stacki.com Every technology market has a set of questions that is good to have on hand when you look at the products that serve the market. This is true of every space I’ve worked in, and true with every vendor I’ve worked for. The key is that there are not golden answers to most of these questions. The importance of a given question deeply depends upon your environment. With that said, I’ll throw a bunch of starting questions out here, with the goal of helping some projects get moving along a little faster. Remember to weight these based on importance in your organization, and be aware that these are in no particular order – because ordering by importance should be based on your priorities. What type of installations does the tool support? Most server provisioning tools fall into one of two categories – golden image, and package based... (more)

Award-Winning Saint Arnold Summer Pils Returns

HOUSTON, April 27, 2009 – There may be a drought across much of Texas, but craft beer fans will not have to go thirsty this summer. Saint Arnold Brewing, the oldest craft brewery in Texas, today announced the long-awaited reintroduction of Saint Arnold Summer Pils.

Open Cloud Computing & Co-operative Community Clouds

Cloud Expo on Ulitzer Now that I'm back and have had chance to recuperate from from my trip to Israel I thought I'd share a few of the more interesting ideas to come out of the conversations I've had. In particular were several comments that Alistair Croll made at CloudCamp Tel Aviv about the potential opportunities for what he described as "Free / Open Cloud Services" as well as an idea I had around the potential of so called "Cooperative Community Clouds". First in regards to Open Cloud Services, basically the concept goes like this; as we move away from the traditional client/server based models of the past to more web centric / service oriented opportunities of the future, we will see open source shift from application centric (source code) toward free open services and information. Cloud providers will essentially give away access in return for greater adopt of ... (more)

My Three Days at JavaOne 2012

After spending three days at JavaOne I’m happy to report that Java remains the most stable and reliable platform.There are some new additions to the language and the JVM that will make Java more complicated. I’m talking about Nashorn, Jigsaw, Lambda, and Modular Java. I’ve attended 10 presentations and participated in three hands-on labs. My notes are below. JavaFX JavaFX is a library and a tool set for creating rich UI for desktop and embedding UI into chips of various devices. It’s not meant to be used for creation of rich Internet applications. The user interface is defined in the .fxml files. It’s standard xml with some import statements. The Scene Builder tool allows you to drag and drop UI controls and CSS onto the scene. It uses regular CSS3 so Java developers better start learning it. The processing logic is written in Java with some additional API. You can ... (more)

Soave Enterprises Employees Show What it Takes to Be a Leader

Anthony Soave is a dynamic leader, committed to the success and growth of his family of business, Soave Enterprises.  As a leader, he portrays the unique characteristics necessary to lead his employees and envision the next progressive steps for the future of each Soave affiliate.  But Anthony Soave believes that being a leader means being a team player, and being able to create cohesion between a diverse range of people, ideas, processes, and goals.  Soave once stated, “Leadership positions have often been portrayed as lonely roles.  I think this is usually an oversimplified and limited view.  It can be very rewarding to lead, and the ability to guide others is regularly demonstrated in one way or another by each of Soave Enterprises’ employees.   Leadership is expressed in widely different roles and settings – through involvement in jobs, schools, community orga...

The Human Face of Big Data, a Book Review

My copy of the new book The Human Face of Big Data created by Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt arrived yesterday compliments of EMC (the lead sponsor). In addition to EMC, the other sponsors of the book are Cisco, VMware, FedEx, Originate and Tableau software. To say this is a big book would be an understatement, then again, big data is a big topic with a lot of diversity if you open your eyes and think in a pragmatic way, which once you open and see the pages you will see. This is physically a big book (11x 14 inches) with lots of pictures, texts, stories, factoids and thought stimulating information of the many facets and dimensions of big data across 224 pages. While Big Data as a buzzword and industry topic theme might be new, along with some of the related technologies, techniques and focus areas, other as aspects have been around for some time. Big data means ... (more)
