Dr. Potato
There isn't a potato-related question that Dr. Potato can't answer. The number one trending question this season is, "How long does potato salad last in the refrigerator?" Here is Dr. Potato's response: "Did the salad get made up and then refrigerated right away, and you just have some left over? If this is the case then it should easily last 3-4 days. Was the salad used at a picnic and then placed back in the refrigerator? Then probably no more than the next day, if that. I usually don't recommend saving the salad after it has sat out in the heat at all."

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.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
