BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Capital Senior Floating, Ltd.

The Company expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,500,000 shares of common stock to cover over-allotments, if any.  The Company has applied to list its common stock on The NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol ACSF.

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...
