NoOps versus NoDevs: Keeping the Neighbors Happy with PaaS

By Kevin "kj" Woolley, December 12, 2012

Developers (Devs) and Operations (Ops) rarely get along in an organization. While developers focus on self-service, rapid deployment, framework, and package flexibility, operations staff members are more interested in a consistent and reliable infrastructure, control over resource allocation, and relief from multiple deployment requests. Staff working on both sides often get frustrated, and tend to ignore each other. Developers want “NoOps,” and operations want “NoDevs.” However both Devs and Ops work for the same organization.

Notes from Germany: HP Discover brightens Frankfurt’s skies

By Bart Copeland, December 7, 2012

It was cold, windy, snowy, and rainy in Frankfurt, Germany this week, but it was a warm, comfortable, and energizing tech environment at the Messe Frankfurt where I attended the HP Discover 2012 Conference. This year’s event was a big draw. The world-class conference centre became an incredibly lively place, a HP hub for HP customers and partners, with over 9,500 attendees, seven keynote presentations, and 360 breakout sessions. I felt invigorated the entire time I was there.

Polyglot

By John Wetherill, November 9, 2012

A polyglot is defined as one who is fluent in multiple languages. This is similar to how a multilinguist is ... uh ...fluent in multiple languages. (OK, who invented two words for the same concept?)

Well, it turns out polyglot applies not only to spoken languages, but to programming languages as well. Thus in the software world, a polyglot application is one built on multiple languages. The term also applies to developer tools that can manipulate such apps.
