Helen Woodward Animal Center's canine surf contest is the largest of its kind in the country and will feature more than 80 dogs surfing in four different weight class competitions. Winners are selected based upon their ability to ride the waves, have fun and stay on their boards. Keeping their eyes on the prize, "Top Surf Dog 2014" -hopefuls have attended recent Center Surf Dog classes with tail-wagging enthusiasm in hopes of grabbing the coveted title on the big day. Each surFUR heat will be judged by celebrities, surf pros and aficionados.

Also on the roster, for the very first time, Stand Up Paddle "Pawers" will have the opportunity to show off the hottest new dog sport hitting the water. Helen Woodward Animal Center, is leading the pack with this PUPular new canine-craze by hosting a Paddle Paws Parade beginning at 10:15am on the day of the competition. Laura Nativo, Pet Trainer, Pet Lifestyle Host of Hallmark Channel's Emmy-Nominated Series, Home & Family, and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) Semi Pro will serve as Paddleboard Ambassador, leading the parade along with her Pomeranian SUP-ing pup, Preston.
The event has a lot to celebrate in its 9th year as supporters, sponsors and families of individual canine athletes have called "all paws on deck" in an incredible push for participation and fundraising, which to-date has already raised thousands. Many pooches who are "paw-ing it forward" by raising funds will sport blue "Rescue Hero" bandanas at the event to show their commitment to their fuzzy friends still awaiting forever families back at the Center.

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.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
