Red Giant Entertainment to Give Away Nearly 100,000 Ad-Supported Comic Books for Comic-Con International: San Diego

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/14 -- Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTC: REDG), an innovative Intellectual Property company specializing in high quality characters and content for use in a variety of media and entertainment, is pleased to announce that it will give away nearly 100,000 ad-supported free comics books, in a dedicated section of the Keenspot/Red Giant island Booth #2635 (across from Marvel Comics) at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Wednesday through Sunday, July 23 - 27, at the San Diego Convention Center.

"Our launch of 400,000 GIANT-SIZE comics back on May 3rd for the comics industry's Free Comic Book Day was a success, and to build on that we had already printed almost 25,000 additional of each of our four GIANT-SIZE #0 titles especially for Comic-Con," said Red Giant COO David Campiti. "There is no better audience to introduce our titles to than the super fans who make the pilgrimage to Comic-Con."

Those titles will be GIANT-SIZE ACTION (featuring TESLA and WAYWARD SONS); GIANT-SIZE ADVENTURE (MAGIKA and THE FIRST DAUGHTER), GIANT-SIZE FANTASY (DUEL IDENTITY and PANDORA'S BLOGS) and GIANT-SIZE THRILLS (TESLA and WAYWARD SONS) -- nearly 100,000 total books.

"Despite such a huge circulation for Free Comic Book Day, many fans couldn't get copies of each of our four books before they were gone," added Campiti. "We're happy to make such a large quantity of them available to the largest comics convention in the nation. If you missed any of them, this is your chance."

This is Red Giant's fourth appearance at Comic-Con, located once again next to Marvel and Image Comics, with a 20' x 20' booth soaring nearly 20 feet high. Each side will showcase specific creators and properties as well as feature videos of its IPs on monitors, in addition to its retail graphic novel store and its dedicated free comics area.

In further support of its various properties, Red Giant will host booth appearances from its top creators: Benny Powell (CEO and WAYWARD SONS writer); David Lawrence (Editor-in-Chief and co-writer for MAGIKA and TESLA); Mort Castle (novelist and writer of DARCHON); Jinky Coronado (writer/artist of BANZAI GIRL, and artist of EXPOSURE and PANDORA'S BLOGS); David Campiti (COO and writer of EXPOSURE and PANDORA'S BLOGS); and BRIAN AUGUSTYN (Red Giant story editor), as well as surprise guests and YouTube star "Markiplier" Mark Fischbach.

Many of these creators will also attend Sunday's Red Giant/Keenspot event panel at 3 pm Sunday, July 27th, in Room 4 of the Convention Center, hosted by Markiplier.

"All of this is in support of our upcoming GIANT-SIZE weekly comics launch this fall through comics shops and the biggest toy store chain in America," said CEO Benny Powell. "We couldn't be more proud."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT.

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.
While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models.

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.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
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...
