“Spark GraphX in Action” book from Manning Publications, authored by Michael Malak and Robin East, provides a tutorial based coverage of Spark GraphX, the graph data processing library from Apache Spark framework. InfoQ spoke with authors about the book and Spark GraphX library as well as overall Spark framework and what's coming up in the area of graph data processing and analytics.
With SOA, businesses moved from monolithic applications to heterogeneous designs by decomposing functionality into services. However, architects must be careful when integrating services. Often enterprises assume adopting patterns like ESB can help. Unfortunately, there are hidden challenges with these patterns. The danger is they go unnoticed during development but surface when a system is live.
This article describes two novel practices for continuous delivery: Latent-to-live code pattern and Forward compatible interim versions. You can use these practices to simultaneously increase speed and reliability of software development and reduce risks. These practices are built on top of two other essential continuous delivery practices: trunk-based-development and feature toggles.
Software developers can raise their consciousness through the use of disciplined technical practices. A knowledgeable developer can influence an ever-increasing portion of the world.
