5 Links for Developers and IT Pros 5/13/11
Posted on Fri, May 13, 2011
Welcome back to our regular weekly feature, Five Links for Developers and IT pros, where we scour the web looking for five interesting links to share with you.
If you missed our post earlier this week on
Entering the Cloud by Leveraging Existing Enterprise Applications
, please check it out. We look at the advantage of a cloud vendor like Box.net teaming up with an on-premise vendor like EMC to give enterprise customers the best of both worlds.
If you have any thoughts about our work here, please feel free to leave a comment, and if you like what you see, please consider subscribing.
Without further delay, I give you this week's links:
Process kills developer passion
- O'Reilly Radar
Do you ever get the feeling that process is becoming more important than the product and the people who develop it? You might not be alone. This author warns that becoming overly concerned with process, you can lose something valuable and it's up to each company to find the right balance between developer creativity and process requirements.
Vint Cerf: Cloud computing not open enough yet
- Enterprise IT Watch Blog
When Vint Cerf speaks people tend to listen, so when he says it's time for cloud computing standards, we should all take notice. He compared the current situation with cloud computing to the early days of email when systems couldn't communicate and email was siloed. He believes there has to be a base of cloud standards on which developers can build based on their own unique specialties.
I Like My IT Budget Tight and My Developers Stupid
- Software Quality Connection
There was a song back in the 80s that went, "I like 'em big and real stupid. I like 'em big and real dumb." It may seem like that's the way companies want their developers today too (see Process kills developer passion above). If you really don't think you want your developers stupid, this author wonders why you don't spend the money to train them.
“I’m From the Government and I’m Here to Help You Find a Job in Health Care IT”
- Climbing the IT Ladder
Did you know that the State of California will train you to work in healtcare IT and you don't even have to live in California to participate. Have I got your attention yet?
Mobile Development Cartoo
n - Software Quality Connection
We like to include a little humor whenever possible because lord knows it's tough out there sometimes. This cartoon looks at mobile development and shall we say twists it a bit. There's a truck involved. Enough said.
