Once upon a time as a teenager I saw a pool table and that planted a deep rooted interest. I remember going into pool rooms but was NEVER invited to join in and take a lesson or anything. Not welcome was the norm. Over the years my parents put in a pool table and I owned them in my homes as an adult. I bought a book and would practice some, but never was aware of any organization or better players. I was in little league baseball, football, bowling, guitar lessons, 4-H, but never even heard of organized pool. WHY?
In 1985 I was asked if I played in a pool league. "That was the moment." The ahha moment and. What did you say? There was a serious pool world, but all underground. Not public. Why? That seed saw the sun and stated growing into an uncontrollable passion to this day. The door was opened.
Then joining my first pool league, making room at my house for a new pool table, buying my first McDermott cue and case and searching out an instructor (Babe Thompson) was a top priority.
After a couple of short years of extreme study and practice, my playing enjoyment passion turned to seeing the organization problems and opportunities grew into a business of organizing and making products more than playing.
Leagues of 4 or 5 games a week and tournaments of 2-3 matches before elimination were hard to satisfy playing interest. I kept practicing. A family and job kept pool competition to a minimum.
The next turning point was after getting good enough to make it 4-5 matches before elimination in blind draw brackets at the Golden 8-Ball, now "oh man" it took 4-5 hours to play in a tournament. A real deal breaker. 11 pm was too late for pool. 4 matches in 3-4 hours, mostly waiting. There has to be a better way to play more pool and enjoy this great colorful activity without all the unnecessary restrictions.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
