Reframing the Digital Transformation conversation in 5 steps
"Unless you are a digital native startup, your digital transformation will most likely be a complex series of incremental and strategic initiatives that fundamentally change the company over time. To get employees, customers, and investors on board, leadership needs to communicate the big idea—the “why” of what you are trying to achieve by reinventing your business. Start thinking about the principles of story telling. Start thinking in terms of the visual tools and communication processes you are going to use get the whole company as well as your partner and supplier ecosystem on board."

Reframing the Digital Transformation conversation in 5 steps
"You need a plan to integrate your digital transformation project so that it works with your legacy systems. Your plan should draw on agile thinking while still satisfying the financial demands of the C-suite. Think in terms of short time scales and multiple iterations. Don’t fear experimentation or failure"

How Edge Computing Will Deliver on the Promise of 5G
"That’s because it’s not meant for us. Like most technological advancements, industry will come first. The promise of 5G is in swarms of drones and fleets of autonomous vehicles. It’s in lightweight industrial wearables that process crucial information rapidly. It’s in robots. And, yes, it’s in the augmented reality game we’ve all been waiting for, “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.”

This promise of 5G will be most likely delivered on the edge, taking it from conference marketing to real-world feasibility. In fact, 4G can already deliver a 5G-like experience with edge computing."

Build DevOps Teams, Start Your Digital Transformation
"Within the team structures, relegating tasks in ways that better make use of team members’ experience is beneficial, PagerDuty’s Stratton said. Traditionally, for example, senior developers and engineers have often been in charge of developing new software features while the junior staff has been tasked with bug fixes. However, it is the senior team members who likely have the experience to better understand the entire system that fixes often require. “Maybe as a senior engineer it is not as interesting to troubleshoot,” Stratton said. “But having experience gives you that understanding of how the system is built.”

PagerDuty CEO: DevOps Success Relies on Teams, Empathy, and Inclusion
"“There is often chaos before there is order,” she acknowledged. The way people are working is changing. The workforce is distributed and needs to collaborate and work well together because minutes and seconds count. Real-time operations are about technology, she said, but it’s more about helping people get the most out of the time and investment and tools they have to get the best outcome for their customers and their businesses."

How KeyBank Used DevOps to Overcome Cost, Complexity, and Legacy Constraints
"Rzeszotarski emphasized the importance of containers as “Rather than have to have 15 teams have to put their hands into the solution to release it, it’s all built within code. It’s reusable. You’re putting that responsibility back to the app team to manage it and we are making it testable and we are using Kubernetes to put the rails up to guard it and make sure it’s highly available and highly reliable.”"

Are Programmers Ethically (and Legally) Responsible for Their Code?
"Anne Currie, founder of the Coed Ethics conference, says that it’s not that developers don’t care, it’s that they don’t think they have any power to make a difference — and she argues they do. While the conference had a lot about the psychological and philosophical basis to decision making and some examples of where profits and world domination can win the ethical debate, it also had some actionable takeaways. Today we’re going to share just what developers can do to influence the ethical decision making within their companies and a couple examples when they did just that."

SAP Inside Tracks stretch SAP’s Marketing Event Budget by $1.9 Million
"It usually is really tough to quantify in actual dollar amounts the impact of a thriving community on a company. Regarding events, you can calculate how much they would cost if not organized by the community. In this post, I am going to demonstrate that the 39 SAP Inside Tracks that were held in 2017 stretched SAP’s marketing event budget by a cool $1.9 Million. I say stretched because SAP would not spend that money but still gets the value."

And the need for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications to maintain a reliable, persistent network of connected sensors and apparati, makes a stable and self-contained network state data platform vitally necessary."

AI Programming: So Much Uncertainty
"Much work, and many tools, are still needed to integrate artificial intelligence into the software engineering workflow, noted Peter Norvig, Google’s director of research, speaking at the O’Reilly Artificial Intelligence conference in New York last week.

Fundamentally, AI software is inherently different from other forms of widely used software, said Norvig, who is also a co-author of perhaps the most popular book of programming instruction for the field, Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach."

MongoDB’s Return to Its Data Management Roots

“It’s like we took an eight-year break,” Eliot Horowitz, chief technology officer and co-founder, said in an interview."

Security Debt is an Engineer’s Problem
"She shared four basic security principles for engineers. First, security debt is expensive. There’s a lot of talk about technical debt and she thinks security debt should be included in those conversations.

“This historical attitude is ‘We’ll think about security later,’” Plattner said. As companies grab the low-hanging fruit of software efficiency and growth, they ignore security, but an initial insecure design can cause problems for years to come."

Docker Doesn’t Fear Kubernetes, Keeps Sights on the Enterprise Instead
"“So for us, Kubernetes is an interesting technology but it is not a particular competitive threat,” Golub said, in a press luncheon at Dockercon 2017, held last week in Austin. Over the past year or so, much of the buzz around containers have gravitated to Kubernetes, container orchestration software open sourced by Google. Especially after the successful Kubecon Europe conference last month, the software is being increasingly touted as the logical cornerstone for running cloud-native applications. But buzz does not alone a successful enterprise technology make, in Golub’s eyes."

"There has, however, been a seismic shift in the learn-to-code landscape over the past decade, and things have particularly accelerated in the last five years. For example, in 2011, just under 40,000 computer science degrees were earned, total, across every college and university in the US. In 2016, by contrast, more than 20,000 people graduated from “learn to code” boot camps alone."

Amidst Bias, Women Work to Find a Place in Open Source Communities
"But once women find jobs in the industry, bias soon becomes apparent for many. The Bitergia study found that 40 percent of women working in the cloud said they were satisfied with their jobs, while 30 percent said they feel stereotyped and only just fewer than half said they believe their company is a true meritocracy. Meanwhile, 48 percent of women in the cloud said they feel that there is a boys’ club in senior management, and 33 percent said gender bias is part of their company culture."

A coordinate itself doesn’t tell you anything. But as your data set gets larger, you go from five variables to ten, you begin to see an exponential increase in complexity."

Mentoring Is a Key to Broadening IT Diversity - podcast from @thenewstack
"The solution to the ongoing issue of diversity is not entirely a pipeline problem, Nampy explained. In particular, it is a problem with the culture of OpenStack and tech overall. “Culture is a big thing. The conversations happening in IRC that are happening are quite frankly not pleasant if you’re a woman. It’s quite male dominated, and conversations can be quite reflective of that. People forget that there are women in the meeting as well. That’s one thing I would like to see cleaned up a bit is the culture.”

For Modern Business, it’s ‘DevOps or Die’
"For enterprise infrastructure software, “The purchasing cycle has collapsed and the deployment cycle has collapsed,” Cockcroft agreed. The old ways of upgrading enterprise software, such as an SAP system, was by having a dedicated team come in and spend months doing the upgrade, and then moving on to the next project. This approach was centered around the model of large periodic updates of the software, which may come out about ever 18 – 24 months. But the move to CI/CD means the updates come in smaller chunks, and arrive more frequently."
