Upcoming Webinar: Implementing Private PaaS for a Secure Enterprise Cloud

Date: Thursday, March 1, 2012
10 AM PT / 1 PM EST
Speakers: John Rymer, Vice President, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research and Bart Copeland, President & CEO, ActiveState

Watch the recorded webinar.

The cloud promises to be a quick and simple way to deploy your applications, but you need more than just virtualized infrastructure to deploy and run your applications successfully. That's why Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) with public services like Google App Engine, Heroku, EngineYard, and DotCloud have gained popularity.

As corporate mandates on data security and privacy compliance drive enterprises to adopt cloud strategies, how do you leverage the benefits of a PaaS that is secure, private, and customizable if your company doesn't permit you to use a public Paas?

Learn how private PaaS helps address these issues in this webinar featuring John Rymer, Vice President, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, and Bart Copeland, President & CEO at ActiveState.

Blog: Improved Syntax Checking in Komodo 7

Komodo has always been adept at working with multiple languages. When we realized that multi-language templating systems were becoming more common, we made it easier to create new colonizers for them. But until now, Komodo wasn't very flexible at checking the syntax of these documents.

Komodo 7 identifies the different parts of a document, and hands each part over to a particular syntax checker. It then collects any error or warning messages from the different checkers, weaves them back together, and presents them all in one shot.
