BOISE, ID -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Supporting the community is a core value for the Marriott family, so when the SpringHill Suites Boise decided to host ArtNight on May 20, 2014, there was no question that the event would benefit a good cause. In this case, the American Cancer Society benefited from the event at the hotel near Meridian, ID, though it was clear that guests and local residents certainly enjoyed themselves, too.
The free, all-ages ArtNight at the Boise hotel spotlighted local talent, from artists to performers. The Idaho Regional Ballet, a local ballet troupe of 30 girls ages 12 to 18, performed, and local artists Becky Stanford, Karen Eastman and Heidi Haislmaier displayed their work. Attendees enjoyed refreshments and hors d'oeuvres, and a silent auction to benefit the American Cancer Society raised $515.
To cap off a successful evening, the hotel near Boise State was presented with a certificate of appreciation from the American Cancer Society, a token in recognition of the charitable contribution.
"The American Cancer Society has made such an impact on the fight against cancer, and we are happy to contribute to that cause," Alan Turpin, General Manager of the SpringHill Suites Boise says. "We appreciate the support from local organizations, such as the Idaho Regional Ballet, and local artists, all of whom helped make the event a success."
The hotel is no stranger to hosting social gatherings, and is a popular choice for business meetings, training sessions, weddings and celebrations. Its 1,137 square feet of function space includes two rooms. The larger Cascade Room can accommodate up to 75 guests, while the Executive Boardroom is ideal for intimate meetings up 10 to 12 attendees. A dedicated planner can help select the perfect audiovisual services and catering to enhance an event, while service staff are on hand throughout the day or evening to attend to guests' needs. This hotel also participates in the Marriott Rewards® program, and offers the opportunity to earn up to 50,000 bonus points with its Rewarding Events promotion.
Those who want to stay informed of upcoming events at the SpringHill Suites Boise, including future ArtNights, can "like" the hotel on Facebook, where events, updates, photos and Boise-related travel articles are posted regularly.

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 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.
