ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH), a relationship-driven investment bank
focused on serving emerging growth companies and their investors, will
partner with the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) for the 3rd
Annual ROTH Ride as the kick-off event to its 26th Annual Growth Stock
Conference March 9-12, 2014 at The Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel,
California. The ride will take place on Sunday, March 9 departing from
the Bike Religion Dana Point store location at 9:00 a.m.
The 41 mile bike ride from Dana Point through the town of San Clemente,
featuring picturesque views of San Onofre State Beach, will benefit CAF,
a world leader in helping individuals with physical challenges get
involved and stay involved in sports. ROTH Conference attendees will
have the opportunity to ride side-by-side with CAF’s Sarah Reinertsen,
Mike Johnston, Eric McElvenny, Steven Peace and Eduardo Garcia. Eduardo
Garcia is an avid outdoorsman and sporting enthusiast who lost his left
hand in a traumatic electrocution accident in 2011. Despite his
life-altering trauma, he has re-discovered his rhythm and passion for
life. He is a true role model of resilience and positivity to anyone
that has faced a challenge and overcome it.
"We are inspired and proud to be teaming up with CAF again this year for
the 3rd Annual ROTH Ride. Together CAF and ROTH developed a Duane Roth
legacy fund to continue to help challenged athletes in the sport of
cycling which he loved so much," said Byron Roth, CEO of ROTH. "This is
an event that our conference attendees look forward to each year to
kick-off our flagship conference. Over half of this year’s riders have
been on one or both of the previous year’s rides.”
At last year’s ROTH Ride 75 cyclists raised approximately $50,000 in
support of CAF’s mission to help people with physical disabilities so
they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and
Bike Religion’s ride leadership and logistical support combined with
top-of-the-line bikes provided by Cannondale and Felt will make it a
worthwhile experience for first timers and experienced cyclists alike.
Additional bike ride sponsors include: Coastal.com, Equisolve, Pulse
Beverages, REED’s, Skullcandy, ZAGG, Delta Apparel and Pactimo.

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.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
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.
