The SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery will gather and present 14 outstanding,
critical, and innovative unique works and projects, incorporating its
theme, “Acting in Translation.” While the essential aim of the Art
Gallery is to provide a deeper insight into the relationships within
art, science, technology, research, and societal developments, “Acting
in Translation” concentrates on strong content and criticality in these
works and projects, conveyed through the use of advanced technologies.
Curated by Basak Senova, “Acting in Translation” aims to revolve around
the readings, responses, and perceptions of ‘the act of translation’ as
a productive tool based on criticality. The participating artists are
Paul L. Stout, Rachele Riley, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Joseph Farbrook,
Yoichi Ochiai, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Inmi Lee, Kyle McDonald, Zohar
Kfir, Sam Blanchard, Kirk Cameron, Robert Redfern, Sergio Bernales, Bo
Li, Michelle Will, Hung-Ching Chang, Kelsey Farenholtz, Brandon
Deaguero, Timmy Meyer, John Mooring, Ali Butt, Speculatorum Oculi, Erik
Brunvand, Alon Chitayat, Jeff Ong, Emilio Vavarella, Fito Segrera, Burak
Arikan, and Ed Konowal/GraphicsNet.
The Art Gallery will also feature one panel and four Talks with the
artists along with an afternoon networking reception.
“The 2014 Art Gallery represents no single or homogenous approach, but a
diverse display of artistic strategies," said Basak Senova, SIGGRAPH
2014 Art Gallery Chair. “Translation, as a term and as a tool, generates
numerous potential fields for art production, which is why we selected
it as this year’s theme and are thrilled to have these outstanding works
The 2014 Art Gallery will take place in the West Building, Exhibit Hall

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures.
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.

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 the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.
