Salesforce kids learn code, teacher is 10-year old
http://bit.ly/1Bfunmp
Salesforce melted a few hearts yesterday at its World Tour 2015 London event in the ExCel exhibition centre. Developer zones are ALWAYS fabulously 'awesome', but this one takes some beating. Kids around the age of 7-9 years were using the 'simple' Scratch drag-and-drop programming tool to create ...

Why Cloud Computing Is (Almost) All Software

 http://onforb.es/1cMIY2O

@F5NetworksEMEA 
Does anybody even make hardware any more? You'd be forgiven for asking the question, even if it does sound slightly ridiculous. But thinking about it… apart from the device you're reading this on and the hardware in the server racks in the cloud datacenter serving this website, is anyone even [...]

Quantum Computing Made Simple(r), IBM Research Closer To First 'Practical' Machine http://onforb.es/1A00kUV via @forbes
Aliens landing from Mars might have trouble working out what IBM is. The firm’s ‘About Us’ pages are fond of talking about the ‘Smarter Planet’ and its IBM Research home page kicks off with ‘The World Is Our Laboratory’ no less. Maybe it’s all a ruse to convince the Martians that [...]

What Is Un-Enterprisey Software Development? 

http://onforb.es/1F7TyYW via @Forbes 
We spend a lot of time focusing on enterprise software application development, but could an un-enterprisey approach to rebel coding be worthwhile? Does real creativity stem from getting technically minded business users to play with so-called ‘low code’ drag-and-drop tools that help them express the functionality (and perhaps business logic) [...]

Apple Bets On Appirio For Enterprise iOS http://onforb.es/1QUekn9 via @Forbes 

@appirio 
@SalesforceDevs 
A lot of people talk about cloud computing. More accurately, so many people theorize around the subject of cloud that it is becoming almost numbingly infuriating to the point of apoplexy. Fewer companies talk about tangible cloud computing implementation and the mechanics of actually migrating to cloud and bringing cloud-based [...]

What to expect from F5 Networks Agility 2015 : 

http://www.computerweekly.com/blogs/cwdn/2015/05/what-to-expect-from-f5-networks-agility-2015.html#.VVSc8eSzJvo.twitter
F5 Networks holds its Agility 2015 conference next week in the bright and shiny Scottish capital city of Edinburgh. There's a bit of urban myth surrounding why F5 is called F5, but popular agreement (and, shamefully, Wikipedia) seems to have settled upon the firm having taken its name from the ...

Microsoft Developer Lead: Build For Any Operating System, Not Just Windows 

http://onforb.es/1cOzVz8 

via @Forbes 
#Build2015
Microsoft has been through an immense period of change. New CEO Satya Nadella has been widely lauded and knocked in equal measure, but he is the man now most regularly credited with swinging the big ship around towards open source and cloud-based delivery. Whether previous CEO Steve Ballmer ‘didn’t really [...]
