TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2014 /CNW/ - The Canadian Olympic Team will celebrate

is truly Canadian, designed by Hudson's Bay.
Made from 100 per cent wool and fashioned in all three key colours of
the collection - red, white and black, this sweater is timeless,
comfortable and perfect for Canadian winters. Inspired by classic
winter sports such as skiing and curling, it prominently features

beaver beside a Canada Leaf. The Canadian Olympic Team will
accessorize the look with red trapper hats and the 5th edition Red Mittens that were also seen during the Opening Ceremony in
Sochi. The look is complete with a black turtleneck and black bottom.

All of the looks worn by the athletes over the past 16 days during the
Opening Ceremonies, on the podium and in the village were designed by
Hudson's Bay and have resonated with Canadians from coast-to coast, and

2014 Olympic Winter Games conveyed confidence and pride," said Derek

collection has received rave reviews from our athletes and Canadian
fans across the country. Everyone is proud to wear Canada and show

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures.
In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.
