(February 16, 2005, 7:15 AM) - Theresa Bui Friday, founder and CEO of Palamida Software announcing the company's new automated solution to control software intellectual property assets.

News Story: Palamida Software announced today live on SYS-CON.TV the commercial release of the first comprehensive system to ensure that companies accurately control their software intellectual property (IP) assets. According to Palamido founder and CEO Theresa Bui Friday, whether software applications are core to a company's product offering or integral to its infrastructure, they comprise a major percentage of many companies' market value. The use of third-party commercial and open source software components has become standard in software development. This rapid shift in component development has left many CEOs, legal counsel, and IT managers scrambling for information about whether their companies control the IP behind applications that are mission-critical to their success.

Robert Hurlbut's .NET Blog: Web Services Edge East and Cabana Night

"I was at the SYS-CON Web Services Edge East 2005 in Boston for a couple of days this week. I had some work to finish for a couple of my clients, so I couldn't attend the entire conference, but what I saw was great. Some of my favorite parts were watching Michael Stiefel's talk on SOA and WSE2 and one of my heros from my transaction study days: Eric Newcomer's talk on service orientation and an working SOA. I really wanted to see Julia Lerman's WSE2 talk, but had to miss it because of work -- bummer!

The biggest highlight for me was attending Patrick Hynds and Duane LaFlotte's security talk on "Security: The New Reality". They are also giving this talk at DevTeach. There were some impressive hacks and defense techniques shown, but one hack I especially "liked" (and you should defend against) is Duane's uploading of an ASP.NET (ASPX) page to a web site, and using it to traverse the file system to obtain anything he wanted off the web server!

While at the conference, I enjoyed catching up with Julie, Michael, Thom Robbins, Patrick, Duane, as well as meeting Derek Ferguson and G. Andrew Duthie for the first time. Look for an article on SQL Injection to come out soon in the .NET Developer's Journal that I am working on with Patrick and Duane.

On Wednesday night, several of us attended the Cabana Night (sponsored by INETA). I was going to be in the Security room as an expert, but at last minute, I learned that the C# room needed someone, and Michael and I stepped in to fill the gap. Most of the questions dealt with books and other resources to get past the basics of C#, and into the advanced particulars of .NET. Both Michael and I agreed that you must always make sure you understand the CLR first (yes, and IL) before venturing out, as it will make understanding the advanced topics that much easier. Unfortunately, as it was last minute, we didn't have anything prepared for C# 2.0 information, but we had internet access and pointed to some good resources (specs, blogs, etc.) to get up to speed on the areas we were not as familiar with that night.

All in all, it was a great couple of days for me to catch up with some folks and learn a few things as well."

Editor's Note: All sessions presented at the Web Services Edge 2005 East will be made avaiable online at "education.sys-con.com" to all conference delegates.

Microservices Articles
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, discussed how to use Kubernetes to set up a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. H...
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
SYS-CON Events announced today the Kubernetes and Google Container Engine Workshop, being held November 3, 2016, in conjunction with @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE).
