Technology choices are made, and because of a variety of reasons - such as multi-year licensing cost, tightly coupled links to mission-critical systems, long-standing vendor relationships - you feel “locked into” those choices. In this InfoQ emag, we explore the topic of cloud lock-in from multiple angles and look for the best ways to approach it.
This year was the tenth anniversary for QCon London, and it was also our largest London event to date. Including our 140 speakers we had 1,400 team leads, architects, and project managers attending 112 technical sessions across 18 concurrent tracks and 12 in-depth workshops. This eMag brings together InfoQ’s reporting of the event, along with views and opinions shared by attendees.
In little over a decade, Africa has gone from being a region where it’s still hard to find power lines, fixed-line telecom infrastructure, and personal computers to being the second-most mobile-connected continent where about 15% of the billion inhabitants own a cell phone.
In this eMag, you’ll find practical advice from leading practitioners in cloud. Discover new ideas and considerations for planning out workload migrations.
This eMag provides a round-up of what we and some of our attendees felt were the most important sessions from QCon New York 2015.
In this eMag we provide both implementation examples and comparisons of different possible approaches on a range of topics from immutable infrastructure to self-service ops platforms and service discovery. In addition, we talk about the Docker ecosystem and the different aspects to consider when moving to this increasingly popular system for shipping and running applications.
This eMag provides a round-up of what we and some of our attendees felt were the most important sessions from QCon London 2015 including Microservices, Containers, Conway’s Law, and properly implementing agile practises.
This eMag aims at providing an overview of an example set of tools that would constitute a typical toolchain. These are popular tools today, but you should look at them as illustrations of the kind of tasks and workflows you might need to perform in your organization as you move along a DevOps path.
This eMag contains a collection of articles and interviews from late 2014 with some of the leading practictioners and theorists in the Web API field. The material here takes the reader on a journey from determining the business case for APIs to a design methodology, meeting implementation challenges, and taking the long view on maintaining public APIs on the Web over time.
Reaping the benefits of continuous delivery is hard work! Culture, processes or technical barriers can challenge or even break such endeavors. With this eMag we wanted to share stories from leading practitioners who’ve been there and report from the trenches. Their examples are both inspiring and eye opening to the challenges ahead.
Infrastructure configuration management tools are one of the technical pillars of DevOps. They enable infrastructure-as-code, the ability to automate your infrastructure provisioning.
In this eMag, we curated a series of articles that look at automation in the cloud and management at scale. We spoke with leading practitioners who have practical, hands-on experience building efficient scalable solutions that run successfully in the cloud.
