No software architect can resist the temptation to talk about their experience with microservices. We launched an interview series with experts who talked about the benefits and challenges of microservices, when people should not use them and what impact they have on an organization. Our first interviewee is Viktor Farcic, Senior Consultant at CloudBees.
IDC predicted that the Internet of Things market will exceed $1.7 trillion by 2020 and the number of IoT connected devices will increase to over 30 billion. It’s safe to say that IoT will be everywhere —but where does this leave us?
Machine learning may sound futuristic, but its not. Speech recognition systems such as Cortana or Search in e-commerce systems have already showed us the benefits and challenges that go hand in hand with these systems. In our machine learning series we will introduce you to several tools that make all this possible. Fourth stop: Apache Mahout.
The app economy has matured, but the number of apps that play in the big leagues continues to shrink. The rule “evolve or die” has been tailored to meet our digital expectations. Bots, however, don’t need to bend the rules to attract users. Here is why we have a bit mania on our hands.
The Bitcoin economy has gone from an early prototype stage to a second one characterized by gambling and black markets and finally to a third stage which steers away from “sin” and toward legitimate enterprises.

Where does the future of Java EE lie? In the cloud? In the hands of Java EE Guardians or MicroProfile? We invited Jeff Genender, Java Champion and Apache Member, to talk about Java EE 8, the latest news and the initiatives that may or may not make a real change.
Netflix’s traffic intuition tool Vizceral (previously Flux) is now open source. This traffic intuition tool helps the company intuit decisions based on the holistic state of the system.
Mobile app developers strive to create error-free mobile apps that satisfy users’ needs and expectations; to do that, they need to thoroughly test their apps. Nothing is more disappointing than an app full of errors.
“DevOps isn’t any single person’s job — it’s everyone’s job.” Practicing DevOps in the true sense of the word may be challenging, but once you’ve overcome the obstacles and preconceptions, everything becomes easier. We asked Atlassian’s Michael Knight and Nick Wright to tell us how this company benefits from (genuinely) putting DevOps into practice.
Each Monday we take a step back and analyze what has happened in the previous week. Last week we dissected Mesosphere’s new assets, we compared machine learning to machine intelligence and we asked you who makes the decisions about software architecture in your company.
