cold_but_beautiful.jpgThe weather isn't exactly changing. Still chilly and cold almost everywhere. Looking at the posts from the technical marketing managers traveling the east cost these days leaves your with a scary feeling that this will never turn into summer again. But I think, life goes on and it is my pleasure to heat you up with all the exciting new developments during another week in JBoss. The last week in February wraps up an amazing month of many new releases and blog posts.

 

Microservices - one persons "micro" could easily be another's "macro".

VP of Engineering marklittle did a blog post and a supporting interview with InfoQ about this topic. He lays out his thoughts on microservices and how they should relate to SOA and other approaches which have gone before.

 

Continous Delivery and DevOps

Arun continued his latest series around this with a couple of new blog posts which are really helpful to get you up to speed with tips and tricks together with Java EE:

Build Binaries Only Once for Continuous Deployment

This winter season in the US Northeast has been brutal.  Last week I was in Boston at the Red Hat Westford Office but returned home during a break in the weather.  Boston has had almost 96" of snow this season with wind chills hitting -26 F.    One of the incredible pictures I saw was a 5 story mound of snow at MIT called the Alps of MIT which was piled up by snow plows.   Hopefully the storms will subside and the Northeast will thaw out soon.  So on to our week in JBoss.....
