VISTA, Calif., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Building Products, Inc., (OTCQB: ECOB) announced today that HOSS Magazine will be featuring ECOB's Steve Conboy and Company in the May/June 2014 issue of Canada's HOSS Magazine – on newsstands May 5, 2014 www.HOSSMAGAZINE.com. ECOB President and CEO was contacted by Craig Charity about publishing an in-depth story about Eco's visionary approach of bringing new defensive building products to the market while at the same time reaching out to those affected by catastrophic events.
Published six times a year, with almost one million copies distributed per release, HOSS has come on strong as a hot new player in the field of home renovation magazines. Publisher & Founder Craig Charity says: "We are thrilled to spotlight Steve Conboy and Eco Building Products in our May/June 'Building for Good' feature. Every issue we profile an individual, business or organization that's going above and beyond to make the world a better, safer place. Steve and his dedicated Eco team exemplify that mission with their innovative fire, mold, wood rot and termite resistant wood products, and construction techniques that are further exemplified by their capacity to withstand seismic activity and hurricane-force winds. In the process, they are providing countless jobs for the unemployed, shelter for the homeless, disaster relief support around the globe, and teaching others the skills to carry on safer, sustainable building practices. We are proud to help raise awareness of their amazing efforts."
"I'm humbled by this story about my team and our efforts in helping folks as we move our products into the main spotlight as the 'most defensive lumber and product-line' on the planet today. After climate change disasters that we're experiencing more and more, it's the perfect stage for our products and we get to help a few families along the way," stated Steve Conboy, President/CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc.
In tune with the release of this far-reaching publication, ECOB's President and CEO has been invited to attend the UN's InfoPoverty Global Conference 2014 as a Keynote Speaker, addressing topics focused on the provision of affordable housing solutions worldwide. The Infopoverty Program was started by the first Infopoverty World Conference, organized by OCCAM in 2001 with the European Parliament, UNESCO Mediterranean Program, UNIC and other scientific and university institutions. Infopoverty is focused on fighting poverty through innovations and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). Additionally and in concert with Mr. Conboy's recent appointment by the U.S. Department of Commerce to the District Export Council, ECOB's CEO has been selected to speak as a panelist at the 2014 World Trade Conference (WTC) covering topics including the exportation of American products to emerging global markets. For information on the WTC, please visit the following link: http://www.worldtradeconference-ie.us/. The Company has found success in this movement through multiple channels, including their innovation in the realm of American innovation and technology in materials science – coatings, which also received recognition at the 2013 Edison Universe Awards with an Edison GOLD.
"This is such an exciting opportunity and event for Eco. I can only hope guys like Jim Clifton with Gallop show up as we support his theory as portrayed in the book 'The Coming Jobs War' here in the US. I get to speak to over forty Ambassadors and some forty Housing Minsters in one setting on how American manufacturers are the best suited to support small, affordable, high demand housing needs better than any other country in the world. I'm going to remind them of our history and how we mastered production housing from World War II up until 2006 and teach them how we wrap a technology around our lumber so they no longer have to build slowly with concrete and brick. We are prepared to teach the world how to build cities like Southern California metro area, Phoenix and Las Vegas," stated Steve Conboy. "Since there's approximately 90,000 affordable housing shortage in the world, per day [accumulating], this becomes a great opportunity for U.S. exports now that wood can go in containers and not grow mold. It is my opinion that this could be the biggest job creation plan in the U.S. since the lumber Industry has the potential to create more jobs than the automobile industry. If Capitol Hill truly supports American Manufacturers and protects the export channels, we have a fighting chance to have a positive impact on our inevitable jobs war," added Conboy.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
