Inside this JAX Magazine: The rapid evolution of Blockchain and Spark
Bitcoin and/or Blockchain, Docker, Spark, microservices and more – these are the topics IT professionals are going to use tirelessly this summer. It’s time we talked about soft skills, security and even mobile and embraced the elephants in the room: Bitcoin and Blockchain.
For those who want to find out more about Docker, this issue will satisfy even the most exigent expectations. Do you want to learn more about Eclipse hawkBit? Say no more! Have you seen the latest comments about Eclipse Papyrus? We are going in for the kill and mediating a debate between a user and Papyrus project lead Charles Rivet.
This issue includes plenty of interviews with high- profile people such as Bitcoin consultant Caterina Rindi, Spark creator Matei Zaharia, the Hyperledger Project’s new executive director, Aviran Mordo, head of engineering at Wix and Viktor Farcic, senior consultant at CloudBees. But that’s not all!
Why not open the magazine and discover the topics that we’ve (deliberately) left out?
Get ready for an issue full of interviews
This time you have front row tickets to Spark, blockchain, microservices, Eclipse Papyrus, you name it.
No software architect can resist the temptation to talk about their experience with microservices. As a result, we’ve asked two experts to talk about the benefits and challenges of microservices, when people should not use them and what impact they have on an organization.
If you want to read about Bitcoin and/or blockchain, this is your lucky day! Caterina Rindi, a sharing evangelist, a collaborative micropreneur, and an educator, weighs in on the identity of the Bitcoin creator, the revolutionary side of the Bitcoin Blockchain and the reasons why people should trust this cryptocurrency.
We have a fiery debate about Eclipse Papyrus and a rendezvous with Matei Zaharia, the creator of Spark. We even try to answer the million-dollar question Where are the skilled developers? and we dip our toes into an issue that has been gaining momentum: security.
