Brian Sletten on O'Reilly Web Events. 
--- Description: The move to a good REST API yields an explosive combination of options due to content-negotiation and arbitrary workflows. At the same time, the uniform interface you project (representations, how you respond to verbs, response codes, etc.) becomes your contract with your clients. The API itself becomes a completely transportable, reusable bit of organizational knowledge when done well. Testing it sufficiently will give you a safety net but may drive you crazy unless you do it right. This Webcast will highlight the problems of sufficiently testing REST APIs while providing a rich and relatively straight-forward solution to the problem. We will use a Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) tool like Cucumber to establish reusable steps and comprehensive, but lightweight testing strategies for testing REST APIs.

We have at our disposal highly efficient representations of most forms of information that we deal with today. MP3 files can highly compress audio data, JPEG does a similar thing for photographs, and ZIP for general data.Unfortunately most software created today is represented highly inefficiently. The problem is not particularly that this leads to large download sizes, though this is a problem for mobile users on slow networks. The problem is th...

You should write a good paper like this one called "Fighting software conservatism".

I've resisted adding a module on high-performance computing to this course for a lot of reasons: I think other things are more important, there's enough coverage elsewhere, the software is hard for novices to set up... But there's another reason, one that may not be as good, but still has a seat ...

At 1060 Research we pride ourselves in reducing waste in software development. However, there is a new wave of waste reduction on the way in hardware as well.

Great article about the history and security of the Internet / Web. 
Scientists worried about intruders and military threats, but they didn’t anticipate that the network’s users would attack one another.

I am dissatisfied with the IT industry. From the outside people think it's all moving so fast and is full of relentless innovation towards the future. From the inside it feels at least in part like a stagnating pool with innovation increasingly confined to narrow niches.Is this because we are focusing too much of our collective energy on the process rather than the artifacts we are creating? The first real practical computers were realised in th...

... Linux dominates the data center. Hard to believe that UNIX it's progenitor was not all that popular when it came out

Software that outlives its developers... mewaahhh is it possible? This is a DARPA-hard problem. 
One of the biggest problems with enterprise software for business is just keeping it up to date. When you're running programs on a large scale, it's not so easy to just "do a quick restart" for updates and patches. But letting software become outdated leads to security and interoperability issues....

... RADICAL Innovation: the Pasteur Quadrant is were all the action is: Use-inspired basic research
Artwork: Monika Grzymala, The River, 2012, Handmade cotton rag paper, fishing line and wire, weaving material of local plants Over the past 50 years, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has produced an unparalleled number of breakthroughs. Arguably, it has the longest-standing, most consistent track record of radical invention in history. Its innovations […]

The World's Most Adaptable Software
Introduction
NetKernel is software built like the Web and made entirely from uniform resources. 
  • Scaleable and distributed applications infrastructure for developing, deploying and orchestrating services and microservices 
  • Unified DevOps environment and workflows for better team independence
  • New capabilities in software security through platform design and architectural patterns help minimize risk surfaces
  • Allows large scale operators to minimize their applications' power consumption at runtime in the data center. 
Seeded with an advanced research project from Hewlett Packard's world renowned Laboratories, 1060 Research was founded in 2002. It reinvented the way we make software by pioneering a brand new general computing abstraction called Resource-Oriented Computing.
