BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- Barcelona routinely attracts many visitors for many reasons. Its beaches, museums and architecture top a very long list of things to see and do, and that list is getting even longer during the next few months. From concerts, to trade shows, to cruises, Barcelona has it all, and only one central Barcelona hotel can keep pace with the city's event calendar: the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel.
One of the biggest attractions in Barcelona, Spain this winter is the Depeche Mode concert. Equal parts high-energy and nostalgic, the concert, which is part of the band's Delta Machine tour, will rock out at the Palau Sant Jordi on January 15, 2014. Two weeks later, Michael Bublé will also be performing at the Palau Sant Jordi on January 30, 2014. Concert-goers can start the evening off with tapas and drinks at the hotel's CUIT Bar & Lounge before singing along to all their favorite songs at the shows.
Barcelona doesn't just attract revelers, however. This historic city will also welcome two major trade fairs this spring: The premier mobile-industry event, the Mobile World Congress, will welcome thousands of communication-technology experts between February 24 and 27, 2014; and Alimentaria's trade show, which is among the biggest for the food-and-beverage industry, will get underway between March 31 and April 3.
This elegant hotel in Barcelona is ideally suited for such corporate travelers. The fresh, clean-lined lobby invites guests to congregate before or after meetings, spend some time on the computer or relax after a long day. The fitness center offers a healthy way to unwind after a day of meetings, while the CUIT Bar & Lounge is a perfect venue to relax with colleagues and friends. Guests can anticipate sampling a traditional tapas-style cuisine of Spanish Platillos, tucking in to the finest cuts of USDA-certificated Black Angus beef, and enjoying signature cocktails while discussing the highlights of the day's events.
As spring gradually blooms, so too do additional travel opportunities. Easter arrives during some of the best beach months of the year in 2014, and guests can anticipate a package that lets them take advantage of the momentous holiday along with the enviable temperatures. And with the Port de Barcelona close by, travelers can enjoy the convenience of staying in some of the most beautiful hotel rooms in Barcelona before setting sail. Accordingly, visitors will soon be able to capitalize on a package geared toward cruise-ship passengers. That long list of things to see and do, it seems, shows no sign of trailing off.
To learn more about upcoming packages, travelers may contact the hotel at 34-93-2723810 or visit www.renaissancebarcelonahotel.com.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

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 ...
