Jason Hope Sponsors Scottsdale's "Shop With a Cop" Project

Summary: Scottsdale Entrepreneur Jason Hope Continues His Support of the Scottsdale Police's Keystone Charitable Project.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Every year the Police Officers of Scottsdale Association (POSA) hosts a pair of events designed to bring joy and community connection to at-risk youths. Called the "Shop with a Cop" program, the project focuses on Back to School time and Christmas time, pairing up a kid with a cop who accompanies them via lighted police escort to spend up to $150 on necessary items, whether it's new clothes for school or a special toy for the holidays. Scottsdale entrepreneur Jason Hope is a longtime active supporter of the "Shop with a Cop" project, diligently donating to the organization and spreading the word about its mission.

Jason Hope said, "There are two key times when children need assistance and support most to help connect them to community -- back-to-school and Christmas. No other times of the year can amplify isolation and lack of resources quite like these pivotal days in a child's life. I fully support the Scottsdale PD's efforts in making life a little more gentle for them. Police officers choose their profession because they want to make a difference and I personally want to thank them."

This year marked the 10thth anniversary of the Back-to-School program, which, on July 30, saw over 500 kids each paired with a Scottsdale police officer who took them shopping for new shoes, several outfits of clothing and a backpack full of school supplies, up to $150. All parents also received fingerprints and new pictures of their children for the school year taken by the police officers working in the school district and in their communities.

Participants for this program are identified through school resource officers and community organizations. "At risk" youth are not always the poorest kids -- they are also our kids who have experienced great loss, domestic violence or a serious illness in their family. This is true community policing. It's essential to build bridges to develop trust and become part of community, and this is what POSA tries to do.

This December will mark the 13th anniversary of the Christmas time "Shop with a Cop". This event has expanded every year and now includes over 700 local kids, age 7-12, hosted at different events over two days, with the prime event being a lighted police escort to the Scottsdale mall for a $150 shopping spree. Anyone interested in donating to the Police Officers of Scottsdale Association may visit http://www.posacares.com to securely send a tax-deductible donation which will help the officers keep their community outreach efforts going.

Born and bred in Arizona, Jason Hope follows his passions for inventing, philanthropy and entrepreneurship in Scottsdale. He has a particular focus on Scottsdale-based non-profits, typically following his passion for community service by providing financial and administrative support whenever possible. His projects cover the gambit of society -- from education to scientific research, disease cure and biotechnology. On a national level, the True Colors Fund, The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, The Andre Agassi Foundation, The Tony Hawk Foundation, Family Health International and Worldwide Orphans Foundation have all benefitted from Hope's assistance.

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.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications.

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