For every cup of its popular Lemon Chicken Soup sold on "Souper Sundays" in February, Daphne's will donate the equivalent dollar amount to Feeding America San Diego, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

Daphne's hopes to raise as much as $5,000 to help feed the hungry and disadvantaged in Southern California.  The price of a cup of Daphne's Lemon Chicken Soup is $1.69, which will cover the cost of eight full meals through Feeding America.

"Daphne's 'Spoon It Forward' program will help Feeding America San Diego and our partners in Orange County and Los Angeles feed families facing hunger throughout Southern California," said Jennifer Gilmore, executive director of Feeding America San Diego. "More than 50 million Americans experience hunger on a daily basis, and we are so grateful for companies such as Daphne's, who are stepping up and helping make a difference."

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves.
