In business, to complete a big project, we segment it into digestible parts. We break our big tasks into smaller autonomous pieces and split up teams by talent. We do this in our daily lives to stay on track and to make sure that we don’t miss anything, so it’s a no brainer that microservices are a rising trend in software development.
The reformed .NET developer and devops extremist Paul Stack, Infrastructure Engineer at Dream it get IT LTD, explains in this interview with Windows Developer Editor Mirko Schrempp, why the definition of done for software has to be “when it is deprecated”.
Today, organizations are storing, managing and analysing increasing volumes of data – and PostgreSQL is evolving to meet these extreme processing demands.
Ask anybody these days about hot software technology topics and you’re bound to hear the word Containers which are light-weight virtual machines that operate on the process level. They can be instantiated very quickly and are easy to configure. If you are going to enter the world of Containers, then you will undoubtedly run into the name Docker which is quickly becoming the ubiquitous standard. Docker is the trademarked company name but also used when referring to their implementation of container technology.
Docker has received a lot of attentions and that’s no surprise that developers want to see it integrated with their development tools. This article is about doclipser, a plugin we have developed at Zenika to add top-notch Docker support in the Eclipse IDE.
As with most things in software development the ultimate currency for comments is time. How much do we have to invest and how much do they save us? Or in other words: What are the costs and benefits of comments?
As developers, we know things break. We also know how to fix them. What we don’t do is do this efficiently. Instead we seem to have a perverse fascination telling one another and the world how broken things are.
The Zephyr Project is a small, scalable, real-time operating system which aims to create resource-constrained systems. It supports a large number of architectures and is can be procured via the Apache 2.0 open source license.
Our JAXenter survey is coming to an end! Countless readers have answered the question ‘What technologies do you want to use this year?’, but there is still time to influence the outcome of the survey. Take a look at our last interim result.
Currently consolidation appears in some parts of the energy system transformation in Germany, but even with the expansion and restructuring of the energy system there is still great progress to be determined . One innovation focus currently lies on the more efficient use of the well over a million wind, solar and biomass power plants that have already been built. For this purpose, fresh, new and innovative solutions are needed, and this in an industry that has to be based primarily on established and proven technologies. JavaFX can act as a bridge here. But is it actually possible to create innovative software products with JavaFX that provide the necessary reliability? A water-level and experience report from applied research.
Modularity makes complexity manageable. As long as design rules are obeyed, different parts of a modular application may be independently configured, deployed and upgraded.
Go 1.6, the seventh major stable release of Go is now available. The announcement comes just a few months after Go marked its sixth anniversary and even though Go 1.5 incorporated massive implementation changes, the release of Go 1.6 is “more incremental,” the blog post reads.
IBM has made almost 44,000 lines of code available to the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Project in order to help developers establish secure distributed ledgers which can be used to exchange most anything of value. In addition, it made a range of announcements regarding new blockchain services on the IBM Cloud, IBM Garages and enabling Internet of Things data on blockchain.
In the last part of our talk to Eric Horesnyi, a High Frequency Trading infrastructure expert and JAX Finance speaker, we put the equal sign between blockchain and the FinTech movement and we look at all the actors that are affected by the blurry line between finance and technology, including citizens and developers.
