If Apple carries on with its many programming misdeeds, it will soon see a breakdown in its shiny, new security
Recently, Apple decided to replace open source OpenSSL with its own
libsecurity_ssl. In doing so, Apple went from a large community to a small community with poor development practices.
Fear the Hadoop! It'll expose your company data to unwashed hacker hordes! Luckily, this new big data security product fixes everything
When Hadoop started, it had a security problem. The spin from the various Hadoop vendors and proponents tended to be something like, "We see security as a front-end application issue." This is what you say when you don't have a good answer.
As our contextual information reaches the cloud, smartphones will get more personal and anticipate everything we want
You thought big data was exclusive to social media empires and search engines? Think again...
If I asked you for the defining characteristic of a big data customer, you'd probably say they're sitting on large amounts of data. If I asked for the defining characteristic of a NoSQL customer, you might answer they require high levels of concurrency.
Well, if that's the total market for NoSQL and big data, then both MongoDB, Inc., as well as the various companies supporting Hadoop should probably shut their doors and call it a day.
Spring WebFlow, Seam, WebBeans, and related beasts must meet their extinction. Who thought evermore client state on the server was a grand idea anyway?
In the beginning we had the Web 1.0. Each time you clicked on an item or hit Post, the request went round trip to the server, then back to the client and re-rendered.

It's tough to find talent. But recruiters, headhunters, and their ilk should be banned from meetups and user groups before they kill them

Tonight I'm going to a sold-out MongoDB eventhosted by my company at our local startup incubator. Already, 250 have people signed up. That's a pretty good crowd for Durham, NC, but not surprising considering the focus is MongoDB schema design.
