While it is difficult to narrow the list to just a few favorites, families should definitely consider the following activities when traveling to the area:

1. Action Water Sports
Water sports are the perfect way to enjoy Lake Tahoe. The area has hundreds of miles of pristine shoreline along its rivers and lakes, which means that families that enjoy spending time out on the water have multiple ways to have fun while on vacation.

For families that want to spend time on land, there is no better way to see the beauty of Tahoe's surroundings environs than on horseback. Sheridan Creek Equestrian Center provides a range of services for horse owners that include boarding and a tack shop, but they also provide trail rides for visitors. Riding Lake Tahoe's trails is perfect for those who want to enjoy the local scenery at a more relaxed pace and with a four-legged companion. Non-riding family members will not be left out as guests may take lessons as well; they even have the option of splitting their sessions and taking a lesson and then riding the center's trail. If they want to go a little faster than is feasible on the trail, Sheridan Creek Equestrian Center has fields where they can gallop if they desire.

4. Truckee River Rafting and Whitewater Rafting

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
