With nearly 311-thousand followers on Twitter, more than 2.5-million ‘likes’ on Facebook and a hugely popular, first-of-its-kind web series documenting his World Outreach travels to 24 countries in 2013, Life Without Limbs and its founder Nick Vujicic have embraced technology as a way to connect globally with those who have accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts.
Born without arms or legs because of a rare disorder known as tetra-amelia syndrome, Nick uses these extreme physical challenges to find inspiration, committing himself to helping others around the world find strength in Christ. He says the Life Without Limbs app is the ministry’s most technologically advanced effort to date to spread His messages and touch people globally.
“God’s message of hope and inspiration is universal, so it’s fitting that this app can bring us all closer together as followers of His word,” Nick noted. “It’s amazing that anywhere, at any time, I can offer a prayer, listen to a message, share some thoughts on social media and read from the Bible with one simple app. No matter where you are around the world, you can connect with us and share your spiritual journey.”

But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
