The Bump And CT Working Moms Partner To Declare First-Ever Moms For Moms Day On March 4, 2014 To End The Mommy Wars

-- A Day in Support of Judgment-Free Motherhood Encourages Moms and Moms-to-Be to Support More and Judge Less --

NEW YORK, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TheBump.com, the fastest-growing pregnancy and parenting website, and CT Working Moms, an award-winning online resource for women balancing work and family life, today announced March 4, 2014 as Moms for Moms Day – an effort to end the mommy wars and promote judgment-free motherhood. In support of this campaign, Governor Dannel Malloy has officially declared March 4 as Moms for Moms Day in Connecticut.

Whether it's the topic of breastfeeding versus formula, working versus stay at home or nanny versus day care, all moms can relate to passing and receiving judgments. Moms for Moms Day was created to stop the combative opinions between moms and to empower every woman to feel comfortable, confident and proud of her choices as a mom or mom-to-be.

"Motherhood is hard enough without the judgments," says Carley Roney, founder of TheBump.com. "We're proud to join CT Working Moms to encourage women everywhere to accept each other's parenting choices (without judging), and to support and be open to learning from a fellow mom who does things completely different."

As an expansion of CT Working Moms Campaign for Judgment-Free Motherhood, Moms for Moms Day calls on all moms to snap a photo of themselves holding a sign stating their mommy truth— a supportive message for other moms— and share it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and include #moms4moms, @thebump and @ctworkingmoms.

"We are excited to collaborate with The Bump on Moms for Moms Day," says Michelle Noehren, founder of CTWorkingMoms.com. "We believe that letting go of our judgments and embracing our differences helps create a sense of sisterhood and support between moms. We're honored to have the opportunity to spread that message to a wide audience."

The Bump and CT Working Moms will celebrate Moms for Moms Day on March 4 by hosting an event in NYC to show support for judgment-free motherhood. The event will feature a discussion led by influential moms, including Carley Roney, Michelle Noehren, lifestyle and parenting expert Samantha Ettus, and Alicia Ybarbo and Mary Ann Zoellner, co-authors of Sh*tty Mom.  The Moms for Moms Day event will be live-streamed on Google+ from 6:30-7:30 p.m. ET so moms across the country can join in on the discussion and show their support no matter where they're located.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. 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. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
