Startups: When to Do The G-word Thing

Startups face a bunch of issues: fundraising, creating a vision, crafting a strategy, putting people and processes in place to make that MVP, tightening the product-market fit, and the rest. With all that going now, how do they avoid the lure of focusing only on local markets?

Yup, the G-word is coming. So, how do startups globalize? And, what can they learn from each other?

JMS Properties in BPM Suite

Lately I needed to transfer messages from OSB to BPM Suite. The setup was that OSB calls a Webservice implemented by a Mediator component that publishes the message on a JMS queue. The webservice request contains a mesage header and a message payload. The payload published as the JMS message-content, but the message header elements were added as custom JMS-properties to the message. How to do that is quite easy and described for instance in (more...)

Service VersionInfo in OSB

When deploying a SCA project (SOASuite or BPMSuite) from JDeveloper you'll be asked to provide a version number. Often when deploying using a script (ANT or Maven) based deployment to a test, acceptance or production environment, the used deployment-framework may use a release number for the versions of the different composites. Besides the support of different versions of composites to reside side-by-side in SOASuite, this is convenient, because this way you know what version of (more...)

Partners and Developers: Cloud APIs from Dublin to San Francisco

Today’s developer ecosystem is one defined by the cloud. APIs, web services, GitHub, EngineYard, Heroku, PaaS, IaaS, Ruby, Python, PHP and more, are all part of today’s developer conversation; words unheard of just a few years ago.

The ability to build and integrate in the cloud is a developer differentiator. The old client-server assumptive days of developers writing UIs on top of each operating system and then making calls to static and (more...)

Development Community in Ireland: Scaling the Summit

I first attended the Web Summit in 2009. Since then, it’s grown not only in breadth of the stages offered, but in depth too, and now includes even sport, music, film and food summits too.  There’s something for everyone in tech to relate to, in practical ways.

Autonomous Quadcopters Playing Some Catch

Tony went to a talk by Salim Ismail (@salimismail), the Founding Executive Director of Singularity University recently. He may/may not post his thoughts on the talk, which sounds fascinating, but this video is worth sharing either way, and not just because we have quadcopter fever.
