IT DevOps: One Size Does Not Fit All

Coming on the heels of agile development—a term first coined in 2001—is DevOps, which was first popularized in Belgium in 2009. Today, 15 years into agile development and six years into DevOps, it is becoming clear that these intertwined terms are quite broad, encompassing attitude and approach, platforms, tools and solutions. Agile development, with its Scrum meetings and quick turnaround cycles, did speed development but made deployment more difficult, because many organizations just couldn’t support fast cycle deployment.

Progress, WaveMaker, others make the case for hybrid mobile app development

With the "borderless office" becoming a ubiquitous phenomenon, today's users demand mobile access to their enterprise applications, which opens up an important market opportunity for developers and software companies. The problem is that building individual native apps for each mobile platform is a complex -- and therefore expensive -- proposition. And it's one that can negate the value of a developer's time and effort, despite the end user demand.

The Surprising Reason Women Are Held Back in the Workplace

The traits frequently keeping women from reaching their professional potential are the same traits that make them great leaders: empathy, the ability to multitask, and encouraging greatness in others. Today’s young workers are looking to be part of something larger, to make a difference in the world. They see wrongs and want to eradicate them. This is precisely where female leaders excel. They listen and motivate teams to achieve great things. Women bring a basket of skills to the marketplace that are hard to match, but more importantly, they are perfectly aligned to capitalize on the needs of a contemporary workforce.

Google Leans on Microsoft for Angular 2 Launch

When Google introduced the beta of Angular 2 earlier this week, it did so with the help of more than 1,300 contributors to the Angular open-source project, not the least of which was Microsoft. Indeed, Google wrote Angular 2 in TypeScript—Microsoft's superset of JavaScript..."TypeScript brings a lot of productivity features that server-side developers love to the JavaScript world, such as type checking and API auto-completion," said TJ VanToll, a senior developer advocate at Telerik. "We at Telerik provide first-class TypeScript support in NativeScript, and having the same TypeScript support in Angular 2 makes it that much easier for us to integrate the two frameworks. The best thing is neither Angular 2 nor NativeScript depends on TypeScript, which means developers that want to use TypeScript get the benefits they're looking for, and those that don't aren't forced to use the language."

How to plan for the cost of cloud computing

How much is that app you run in Azure? Or Amazon Web Services, Google, Rackspace or other cloud computing platform? As cloud app solutions fragment, with compute, storage, analytics and other services running in clouds from various providers with different pricing structures, getting a grip on the actual cost of cloud computing is no easy task. Yet, it can be done. Combine carefully chosen services with a long-term commitment and it's possible to achieve savings of as much as 74%. Like the 55-year-old song says, you better shop around.
