CALGARY, AB -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- The Spring Calgary Dealmakers Prospect & Property Expo will take place Monday, May 5, 2014 at the TELUS Convention Centre in Calgary, Alberta. Following up on two successful shows in Calgary during 2013, this power-packed one-day Canadian prospect expo is the "go to" event for deal buyers, sellers and capital providers looking to initiate investments and divestitures.
Six leading Canadian oil and gas industry groups are lending support to the oil show. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen (CAPL), Canadian Global Exploration Forum (CGEF), Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG), and the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (EPAC) are renewing their participation in Dealmakers from last year. Additionally, the Canadian Society for Unconventional Resources (CSUR) is joining this industry-leading oil and gas expo, which is being managed by PLS Inc., one of the energy industry's leading information, marketing and advisory firms.
These six industry groups along with show manager PLS are underwriting the event costs to make booths free for participating sellers, prospect generators and acreage holders. In addition, PLS will donate over $8,000 to the collegiate scholarships funds of CAPP, CAPL, CGEF, CSPG, EPAC and CSUR.
Dealmakers enables attendees to catch up on current plays and initiate contact with the industry's preeminent prospect generators, explorationists, property sellers, deal-takers, operators, non-operated working interest owners, capital providers, advisors, divestiture professionals, investment bankers and other energy executives active in buying and selling oil and gas assets. By limiting attendance mainly to buy- and sell-side professionals and capital providers, Dealmakers consistently draws a high percentage of C-level executives and decision makers. An industry luncheon and networking reception starting at 4:00 pm will provide excellent opportunities for additional networking.
PLS expects more than 60-70 booths filled with deal prospects, and 400-600 oil and gas industry professionals to attend. Capital providers and financiers in attendance will include Ernst & Young, Macquarie Bank and Osprey Capital Partners.
Among E&P companies, early Dealmakers registrants include Blizzard Resources Inc., Eagle Energy Trust, Lone Pine Resources, Northern, PanTerra Resource Corp., Petronamas Energy, Quattro Exploration & Production, Relentless Resources Ltd., Santonia Energy, Stormhold Energy, Trident Exploration Corp., Woma Energy, Xerex Exploration Company, and Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc.
In addition, this oil expo will include 3 breakout sessions on M&A, E&P and capital markets. Speakers include Alan Crossley of Osprey Capital Partners, Jeff Lawson of Peters & Co., David Baboneau of Scotia Waterous, Brian Lidsky of PLS Inc., Mark A. Scholz of the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors, Sonny Mottahead of Black Spruce Merchant Capital, Adil Lalani of Macquarie Energy Capital, Rick Grafton of Grafton Funds, P. Gage Jull of Mackie Research Corp., Bruce Edgelow of ATB Financial and Barry Munro of Ernst & Young.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.

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.

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...
