While some vendors scramble to create and sell you a fancy solution for monitoring your spanking new Amazon Lambdas, hear how you can do it on the cheap using just built-in Java APIs yourself. By exploiting a little-known fact that Lambdas aren’t exactly single-threaded, you can effect...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a w...
If you read a lot of business and technology publications, you might think public clouds are universally preferred over all other cloud options. To be sure, the numbers posted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft’s Azure platform are nothing short of impressive. Statistics reveal...
A common development challenge is accurately scoping the amount of effort required when creating new applications. This can occur when an application’s requirements are first being designed, or even before. Since one of the most frequently-overlooked capabilities of service virtualizat...
For over a decade, Application Programming Interface or APIs have been used to exchange data between multiple platforms. From social media to news and media sites, most websites depend on APIs to provide a dynamic and real-time digital experience. APIs have made its way into almost eve...

Have you ever had the feeling of Silicon Valley envy? Think of a company like Airbnb experiencing exponential growth by making the most of AWS cloud computing. It would be nice if we could all just leave our legacy-laden on-premises data centers behind and go all-in on the cloud. Trad...
One important organizational point of Agile API delivery is the concept of a team producing a usable version - which should result in the improved alignment of development, QA, and technical operations teams. Perhaps an even larger benefit of Agile is that it allows teams to effectivel...
This week's news brings us further reminders that if you're betting on cloud, you're headed in the right direction. The cloud is growing seven times faster than the rest of IT, according to IDC, with a 25% spending increase just from 2016 to 2017. SaaS still leads the pack, with an est...
Having automated workflows sounds like a sexy thing. And it is. It feels pretty awesome to be able to initiate a process with a button and forget about it while the work gets done. But that doesn’t mean you have to automate every process in your office. I mean, I think people can take...

An Azure platform is running on a virtualized server and hence the above container hosts may not give the same performance as an equivalent container host on a bare metal server. However, this thought process will help organizations to come up with new use cases of utilizing Windows 20...
Agile development is highly iterative, and relies upon the rapid development of software and early feedback. These practices are well understood and practiced in mature application development teams. The shift to an agile software development process has helped teams accelerate time t...
During the early days of my career, I used a variety of development environments, including the most popular Turbo C along with FoxPro, PowerBuilder, and Delphi before finally settling down with Microsoft Visual Studio. The first line of code that I have ever written was in QBasic run...
Data centers have seen a lot of change in a short time. It used to be possible for organizations to run their service from a single data center and house their Domain Name Service (DNS) servers within it. It wasn’t an issue to have them in the same place, since if the data center went ...
Our new upcoming ebook is the ‘Microservices Cookbook'. This will provide a general introduction to the new software design model known as ‘Microservices,' provide a Platform design for their implementation, and describe a number of ‘recipe' scenarios for how they might be applied. A...
Imagine if every PhD dissertation resulted in something that changed the world? That's what happened when Roy Fielding presented his doctoral dissertation on the "representational state transfer" at University of California-Irvine in 2000. This dissertation laid the groundwork for th...
While API virtualization is already over a decade old, many developers, testers, and decision-makers still misunderstand it. Virtual APIs create an environment that teams can use to mimic the characteristics of the production environment and create simulated responses from all APIs th...
If your organization has moved to a public or private cloud you’ve had the conversation about the scope of development environments. Should every developer get an environment in the cloud? Traditional test environment management has focused on QA and staging environments for the quali...
In Angular 2 a parent component can pass the data to its child via binding to the child’s input parameter marked with the annotation @Input(). I’ll blog about it later, but you can see how it can be done in my blog on implementing the Mediator design pattern. In this blog I’ll show yo...

With new virtualization tools popping up seemingly everywhere, you might wonder why so many testers, developers, QA Engineers, and Operations professionals are virtualizing their web services. Why should you virtualize your APIs? SmartBear Software recently conducted a survey of more...
How well do you know your code? It sounds like a strange question, but please indulge me. Maybe you're a manager or business analyst. If this is the case, you ‘know' the code through a translation layer in which the developers in your organization explain what it does. Sometimes ...
