MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) is pleased to announce that five beehives have been installed at Montreal-Mirabel International Airport. The project was developed jointly with the co-op Miel Montreal.
"Mindful of the importance of preserving these pollinators, which help save crops and maintain biodiversity, Aeroports de Montreal has taken this action as part of its commitments to protecting the environment, promoting sustainable development and mitigating the ecological impacts of its operations," said Christiane Beaulieu, ADM's Vice-President, Public Affairs and Communications.
Taking its cue from a number of European airports, Chicago's O'Hare became the first in North America to implement a beehive project, in May 2011. Montreal-Mirabel is now the first airport in Canada to follow suit. "Airports are prime sites for sustaining bee colonies, because of their broad expanses of land and abundant, diverse wildflower populations," Ms. Beaulieu added.
At the end of the beekeeping season, ADM will give part of the resulting honey production, estimated at more than 50 kg, to the Moisson Laurentides food bank.
To ensure the project goes smoothly, the beehives have been located sufficiently far away from companies' buildings at the airport. There will also be training sessions and a newsletter to raise awareness among employees of ADM and these companies.
This initiative complements other environmental stewardship projects implemented by ADM at Montreal-Mirabel, such as the 2011 partnership with CO2 Environnement for the planting of 96,000 trees on the airport lands.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
