"This is the beginning of a new era for The Strip," said Sam Nazarian, Founder, Chairman and CEO, sbe. "We are thrilled to throw open our doors and show the world what we've been working on for the past several years.

Destined to become one of the most energetic hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, SLS is high-style collaboration between Nazarian, James Beard award-winning chef Jose Andres and design visionary Phillippe Starck in collaboration with globally acclaimed architectural firm Gensler. Highlights of the property include Andres' Bazaar Meat, a twist on his hugely popular concept Bazaar; the second location of The Sayers Club, one of Los Angeles' best-loved live music venues; celebrated restaurants Katsuya by Starck, Umami Burger, Beer Garden & Sports Book, Cleo and The Griddle Cafe; an exclusive partnership with retailer Fred Segal and The Strip's most exhilarating nightclub, the 20,000 square-foot LiFE, a venue designed, with sbe's myriad years creating superior nightlife venues, to maximize the club-going experience.
"We're incredibly proud of our partners and our approachable mix of amenities," added President and COO of SLS Las Vegas, Rob Oseland. "As a result, we have a property that speaks to everything that the 40 million tourists who find their way to Vegas every year expect while at the same time stays approachable and welcoming to the vibrant community of Southern Nevada."
The resort celebrated its opening with a star-studded preview party with guests including actors Aaron Paul, Emile Hirsch and Kellan Lutz, model Dita Von Teese, UFC star Chuck Liddell, and actress Brittany Snow. Partygoers enjoyed tastes of the resort's signature food and beverage offerings and live performances from rock legend Lenny Kravitz, who designed a handful of the resort's top tier suites, and rising star artists including Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, JoJo and Jhene Aiko. As the clock struck midnight, amid a dazzling display of fireworks, the SLS team led by Sam Nazarian officially cut the ribbon and escorted the first guests to the gaming floor.
"This is a very exciting day for us," said Nazarian. "SLS Las Vegas is the embodiment of a dream that began seven years ago when we purchased the Sahara. To see this legendary property come back to life in the vision that we created all those years ago is nothing short of incredible and I am grateful for all of our visionary partners and the incredible community support we have received during this transformation. We invite everyone to be legendary and join us at SLS Las Vegas."

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

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.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

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...

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.
