Microservices appear simple to build on the surface, but there’s more to creating them than just launching some code running in containers and making HTTP requests between them.

There are two main types of add-on: Extensions add new features to the application, while Themes modify the application's user interface. Add-ons can greatly affect the behavior of the application that hosts them. We've developed a set of guidelines to help ensure that they provide a good experience to users. These guidelines apply for all sorts of add-ons, whether they are hosted at addons.mozilla.org or not. A Reference Architecture for the Internet of Things This is the first article of a two article series in which we try to work from the abstract level of IoT reference architectures towards the concrete architecture and implementation for selected use cases. This first article will cover the definition of a more concrete and comprehensible architecture whereas the second part will then apply this architecture to actual use cases. We are at the edge of a new interconnected world. Under the name “Internet of Things” (IoT) or “Industry 4.0” companies are developing a new network of intercommunicating objects of our everyday life. The IoT interconnects the Things in order to exchange information to fulfill tasks for the users. Ideas of fridges communicating not only with your smart-phone, but with the producer's server farm or an energy power plant will soon become reality.

In a Google+ post yesterday, the Freebase team explained its decision to hand Freebase data over to Wikidata: How to Create Landing Pages That Convert We talk a lot about landing pages these days, but what exactly are they?

10 Common Mistakes Made by API Providers Twitter was one of the first to see what happened when traffic to the site came more from the API than the Web. It now has more than 65 million tweets per day, most coming from services that use the Twitter API. Twitter has made numerous changes to fix its API. Those experiences have taught providers what mistakes not to make when launching a service.

AppFog Makes 12 Factor Apps Easier. But What Are 12 Factor Apps? - CenturyLink Cloud Businesses have a mandate to gain a competitive advantage from IT. Invariably, this discussion turns to cloud-native apps. Leaders ponder questions like “How can we create, run, and scale new applications quickly and easily?” “How do we experiment, get to market faster, and reduce the cost of trying new things?” The answer: embrace the development and operational principles behind “12 Factor Apps.” How can your research have more impact? Five key principles and practical tips for effective knowledge exchange. Generating new knowledge is a relatively straightforward concept compared with the more unknown territory of getting knowledge to those that might need it. To ensure knowledge is useful, relationships must be built: two-way, long-term, trusting relationships between researchers and the people who need the new knowledge we are generating. Mark Reed and Anna Evely share their top five principles for effective knowledge exchange. Name an impact from research that hasn’t involved knowledge exchange. If like us, you can’t think of one, then it follows that if we want to have an impact, we have to become great at knowledge exchange.
