"Web 2.0 isn't dead. It's just barely being born," says Shel Israel

We have a long way to go before the next generation of the Web truly arrives. Years and years. As commentator Shel Israel has said: "Web 2.0 isn't dead. It's just barely being born." In line with its commitment to keep developers, IT managers, and vendors alike ahead of the i-Technology curve, SYS-CON Media has just unveiled its latest new magazine and site: Web 2.0 Journal (web2.sys-con.com).

The editor-in-chief of Web 2.0 Journal, Dion Hinchcliffe, commented:

"2006 will be a largely Web 2.0-driven story. As we will be reflecting in Web 2.0 Journal - through articles, features, reviews, comment, and news - great web sites no longer limit themselves to just the user interface they provide. They also open up their functionality and data to anyone who wants to use their services as their own."
"This allows people to reuse, and re-reuse a thousand times over, another service's functionality in their own software for whatever reasons they want, in ways that couldn't be predicted," Hinchcliffe added. "The future of software is going to be combining the services in the global service landscape into new, innovative applications. Writing software from scratch will continue to go away because it's just too easy to wire things together now."

In the end, Hinchcliffe predicts, XML over HTTP, and REST, and particularly RSS, will be the lowest common denominator on the Web. Web 2.0 Journal will keep a weather-eye on scalability, perhaps the single most difficult issue for successful Web 2.0 software, and on the entire world of the read/write Web and all its mushrooming new facets - from tagging, wikis, mash-ups, and image-sharing to "Advertising 2.0," podcasting, and The Writeable Web.

Editor-in-chief Hinchcliffe is a software architect by trade who has been creating software large and small for over twenty years. "People want software that does what they want, is available when they need it," he says. "They want software that grows with them, helps them, teaches them, and lets them do the same with others. They want software that gets out of their way, disappears, and is more convenient by far than inconvenient. And they want to pay as little as possible for it, but enough so that it's worth it. They are willing to have software get right into the middle of their lives. If it's the right software."

"For as long as we've had software," Hinchcliffe remarks, "they've always wanted this. But now they might actually start getting it."

Web 2.0 Journal, from the get-go, will reflect Dion Hinchcliffe's infectious passion for Web 2.0: "I do believe the overall concept deeply and profoundly as a software professional," he declares.

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Digital Transformation is well underway with many applications already on the cloud utilizing agile and devops methodologies. Unfortunately, application security has been an afterthought and data breaches have become a daily occurrence. Security is not one individual or one's team responsibility.

Two apparently distinct movements are in the process of disrupting the world of enterprise application development: DevOps and Low-Code. DevOps is a cultural and organizational shift that empowers enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker – in particular, hand-coded software. Low-Code platforms, in contrast, provide a technology platform and visual tooling that empower enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker -- with little or no hand-coding required. ...

While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters.
