Power Players Rally in Preparation for North America's Most Prestigious Conference for Working Women: The California Women's Conference May 19-20

Stars, Legendary Journalists and Industry Leading Experts Prepare to Deliver Powerful Keynotes Amid Conference's 'Better Together' Theme Underscoring the Importance of Collaboration in Fostering the Success of Working Women; 29th Annual Event Continues to

LONG BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- The power of unity, connections and cooperation are key elements in the progression of women and, with such collaboration, working women and global organizations at large have abundant opportunity to advance. It is this mindset that drives this year's star-studded 29th Annual California Women's Conference to be held at the Long Beach Convention Center on Monday, May 19th and Tuesday, May 20th, 2014. A star-studded lineup is set to grace the event stage to enlighten attendees on the importance of men, mentors, family and community in fostering the success of working women, as well as an array of other compelling topics to help aspiring female professionals grow and succeed in business. Key event speakers, including some of those available for interview, include Arianna Huffington, legendary reporter Jane Pauley, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul Series Jack Canfield, and actress Rosie Perez (view full list down below). The speakers, panels and breakout sessions will be focused on key subjects that impact achievement ability, namely Career Life, Social Life, Financial Life, Physical Life, and Community Life.

The topics to be covered at the conference are critically important given that, while women are 50.8 percent of the U.S. population earning almost 60 percent of both undergraduate and Master's degrees, also holding almost 52 percent of all professional-level jobs, American women lag substantially behind men when it comes to their representation in leadership positions (CAP, Catalyst, Center for Economic Development).

"Women can lead the future," said Patterson at the recent "Power of Collaboration Global Summit" held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City where IBM and other global organizations convened with dynamic international leaders to discuss and develop new, groundbreaking tactics for women to collaborate to accelerate to higher levels of impact. This riveting discussion was the precursor for what Patterson and her team of elite speakers will bring to this year's California's Women's Conference.

Key event speakers, including those who are available for interview, include the following:

  • Arianna Huffington (available for select interviews)
  • Jane Pauley (available for select interviews)
  • Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul Series (available for interviews)
  • Rosie Perez, Actress (available for select interviews)

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 ...
