Microservices without the Servers Tim Wagner, AWS Lambda General Manager At LinuxCon/ContainerCon 2015 I presented a demo-driven talk titled, “Microservices without the Servers”.

Learning Spaces for Digital-Age Skills One of the main drawbacks to a passive learning environment is that it provides few opportunities for students to develop the skills that are so important in the digital-age workplace. When teachers control the topics and pace of learning, the ways students access knowledge, and the ways they demonstrate what they’ve learned, students can’t develop their creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills. And when the only audience for student work is the teacher, students can’t develop the flexible, effective communication skills they need in a digital age. All digital-age skills are, of course, important.

edutopia April 2015 marks the 30th anniversary of School Library Month. As our libraries evolve in the age of digital information, they need our help more than ever to stay well-funded and supported so they can grow in their critical role as advocates of technology and information literacy.

How to Start Contributing to Open Source Software – Aaronontheweb April 24, 2015 The Petabridge team (all two of us) just wrapped up a big two weeks. We launched Akka.NET V1.0 and then traveled to Portland to talk about .NET open source software at .NET Fringe. One of central themes of .NET Fringe is open source communities - and there's two sides to this coin: How does an open source project successfully attract contributors and make them effective?How does your typical software developer become an OSS contributor?
ipad cover tutorial We recently bought a new iPad 2 for work and I was floored at the prices of covers…..I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much. My husband’s friend Walker jokes that his composition notebook is his “low-tech iPad” because it is exactly the same size…..so it gave me an idea. I would make a cover for our new iPad out of one of the old composition notebooks I had sitting around.
