Why .NET Deployment Automation Is Vital for Agility
By Ron Gidron
Developing and deploying large-scale .NET-based applications can quickly
become a time-consuming and error-prone process, as you waste resources and
expose yourself to the risk of failure and diminished employee satisfaction.
It may seem a trivial task at first, but as .NET development is scaled to
hundreds of applications and thousands of servers, its deployment must be
automated like any other process if you are to achieve enterprise-wide
agility. It's time to take action.
As your .NET code base and your number of applications grow, .NET deployment
automation becomes a bigger challenge and many aspects need to be considered.
Here are two examples of what may be required for a .NET deployment

Using tags to organize and label all the monitored components in your
environment is a great way to filter server-side services for purposes of

Dynatrace now provides a rule-based approach to tagging that gives you the
flexibility you need to take maximum advantage of Dynatrace Smartscape
topology modeling, auto-detection of processes and services, and built-in

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would
share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application
pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered.
From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed.
What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX?
Eric Miraglia of Yahoo!
1. (From March'08) How do I calculate the ROI of building my RIA on the
iPhone SDK vs using AJAX?
2. How do I assess the performance of my app and decide what to do next to

Ten Things You Should Know About Microsoft's .NET Core 1.0
By Edward Ferron
On June 27, Microsoft announced the release of a project several years in the
making - .NET Core. The solution resulted from the need for a nonproprietary
version of Microsoft's .NET Framework - one that runs on Mac and several
versions of Linux, as well as on Windows. This cross-platform .NET product
offers programmers new opportunities with its open-source design, flexible
deployment, and command-line tools. These features are just part of what
makes .NET Core an important evolution in software development. The following
are ten key facts you should be aware of when it comes to Microsoft's .NET
Core 1.0 and its impact on software.
1. The .NET Core Platform Is Open-Source
.NET Core is part of the .NET Foundation, which exists to build a community
around and innovate within the .NET developmen... (more)
In the mobile world, there are no excuses for any user experience that
isn’t instantaneous, dynamic, and safe.
A cool way to develop these types of apps is with the use of a growing
technology standard, WebSocket. This standard has been around since 2011
and allows you to add nifty real-time features to a mobile app.
Let’s use the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway and build our first real-time
mobile app. Download the JMS Edition of the Gateway to get started.
Included are a collection of Web, native and hybrid JMS demo apps for both
iOS and Android to learn from. But why not just build one yourself?
All of the demo apps involve the same major programming steps (and
model–view–controller pattern). All you have to do is simply import the
Kaazing WebSocket Gateway client libraries and then add the following

Disruptive macro trends in technology are impacting and dramatically changing
the "art of the possible" relative to supply chain management practices
through the innovative use of IoT, cloud, machine learning and Big Data to
enable connected ecosystems of engagement.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
