Each week, Everyday Health profiles people who are either facing a health crisis or are close to someone facing a life-altering health event, and they are not wasting time helping others in a similar situation. Each program addresses a medical condition, sometimes includes a celebrity guest, and always provides a surprise reveal for the person profiled.

Hosted by a trio of health ambassadors -- Laila Ali, a world-class, elite athlete; Ethan Zohn, a former professional soccer player and humanitarian; and Jenna Morasca, champion of Survivor: The Amazon -- the premiere episode features Jesse Billauer and his organization Life Rolls On. At age 17, Billauer had his surfing career cut short following a spinal cord injury which left him a quadriplegic -- and there are an average of 6,700 new spinal cord injuries among youths annually. Determined to surf again and help others, he founded Life Rolls On. His organization improves the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injuries and utilizes action sports as a platform to inspire infinite possibilities despite paralysis. Everyday Health surprises Billauer by hosting an overwhelmingly successful fundraiser, with help from friends including a musical performance by Jason Mraz. Jesse is surprised with an adaptive bicycle, and an adaptive surfboard is also provided by Everyday Health.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
