Episode 6 Recap

This week, the Top 12 home cooks arrived at Toronto's historic Distillery District for a team challenge where they had to prepare canapés for some of the toughest food and art critics in the country. In this challenge the food had to look as good as it tasted. Having the best dish in last week's Elimination Challenge, the Team Red captain Dora, chose Carly, Mike, Tammara, Marida, and Julie to work with her. Danielle, captain of Team Blue, chose Dale, Josh, Eric, Pino, and Kaila to cook with this week. The judges were impressed with both teams but in the end, Team Red won by just one canapé. In a surprise twist Team Red was also given the chance to save two people from Team Blue from participating in the pressure test. They chose to save Pino and Eric. The rest of Team Blue each needed to make the perfect cheesecake - a classic MasterChef challenge. Danielle won the cheesecake challenge and Josh was sent home.

While testing is often ignored when it comes to DevOps - it could be the most important aspect of achieving true DevOps success.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
