Amir Chaudhry explains the ideas behind Unikernels, implementations like the OCaml-based MirageOS and Haskell-based HalVM, Rump Kernels for integrating with legacy code and much more.
Adam Wick talks about software security, research into formal methods and randomisation as well as documentation and types to help write secure software, HalVM and other Unikernels, DRM.
Mik Kersten talks about current and future trends in ALM and the support for approaches like large scale Agile, DevOps, Docker, Big Data, functional languages and the Internet of Things.
Tom Limoncelli explains the reasons for DevOps, how to choose which steps to automate and which not, enabling continuous deployment, and much more.
In his role as co-founder and CEO of Takipi enterprise debugging, Tal Weiss advises enterprises on how to plan and execute production debugging strategies. In this candid interview, Weiss spoke to InfoQ about best (and worst) tools and practices.

What's the impact of Java 8 on the Java ecosystem and why did we have to wait so long for these improvements? Is the JCP the right tool for driving innovation and do we need a really new version of Java? One that would not need take care of backward compatibility? We met Trisha Gee - a great member of our Java community - in New York to talk about these topics.
Randy Shoup talks about designing and building microservices based on his experience of working at large companies, such as Google and eBay. Topics covered include the real impact of Conway's law, how to decide when to move to a microservice-based architecture, organizing team structure around microservices, and where to focus on the standardization of technology and process.
Anil Madhavapeddy describes why unikernels have important security properties, how they can be built, and how they can be utilised alongside of Docker containers. He stresses the importance of type safe languages, particularly OCaml, which was used for the Mirage OS project, but also touches upon Go and Rust.
Architecture design is defining the basic structure of our software for now and for the future. But how can this work, given that we are living in an agile world accepting the fact that we only have limited knowledge of our final system? InfoQ was talking with Colin Garlick about architecture design and responsibilities during software development.
Steve Thair on introducing DevOps in large organizations, the particular challenges they face (from ROI based finance models to technical debt to improving communication) and how to address them.
Recorded at EclipseCon NA 2015, Jay Jay Billings talks to Alex Blewitt about the recently created Eclipse Science working group, including the challenges involved in data visualisation of petabytes of data and on highly parallel computing that might have hundreds of thousands of processes all processing data.
