NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- No one knows how to celebrate quite like the City That Never Sleeps, and NYC's Gay Pride Week offers no exception to the rule. With parties, rallies and, of course, the legendary March all on the calendar, the only question for visitors is which hotel will put them in the center of all the action. The answer, it turns out, is among hotels near Chelsea: The Courtyard New York Manhattan/Chelsea combines an enviable location with a promotion that's easy on the pocketbook.
Guests staying at this hotel near Penn Station will find themselves close to a variety of attractions. Madison Square Garden is just steps away, and the Theater District, Times Square and Koreatown are all within walking distance.
Such a central location allows guests to take full advantage of Gay Pride Week's exciting events. Families will want to arrive early to attend Family Night's free viewing of "The Wizard of Oz" at Hudson River Park on June 24, 2014. A few days later on June 27, Pride Week officially gets underway with The Rally's performances and speakers. Parties for men and women get everyone in the spirit of things on June 28, just in time for the festive, over-the-top March on June 29. With more than 50 floats and countless groups parading down Fifth Avenue, the March is a spectator sport not to be missed.
For travelers looking to get in on the fun, the Courtyard offers a standout option among hotel deals near the Empire State Building. Designed to celebrate Gay Pride in general, the Out & About package includes overnight accommodations, a nightly bottle of champagne and a nightly in-room movie, all based on a consecutive-night stay. Breakfast for two at the stylish Table 135 is also included, with guests enjoying the option of a Continental meal or a hot breakfast. Guests should use the promotional code 4LG when booking to secure the package, which is available through December 31, 2014.
As one of the most value-driven hotels in New York's Fashion District, this property offers guests a variety of amenities that enhance their stay during Gay Pride Week and beyond. Visitors, for example, can stay connected with free Wi-Fi access throughout the property, while luxury bedding, mini-refrigerators and in-room coffee/tea service add a level of comfort that makes it easy to be on the road. And that's something the hotel can take pride in any time of year.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...

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.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

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...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
