KINDER® Canada unwraps 817 smiles while breaking a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® record

817 people participated in KINDER® Canada's record-breaking event at the Canadian National Exhibition

TORONTO, Aug. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Parents and children gathered at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) today to unwrap a KINDER® SURPRISE® egg and rejoice in the sweet satisfaction of breaking the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® record title for the most people unwrapping candy simultaneously. To celebrate KINDER®'s 40th anniversary worldwide, the event was part of KINDER® Canada's "Unwrap a Smile" program that kicked-off during this year's back-to-school season.

"It's an exciting time for KINDER®! We achieved the goal of breaking a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS record and in doing so achieved our goal to unwrap hundreds of smiles," says Shoshana Price, group brand manager, KINDER® Masterbrand at Ferrero Canada.

"When a parent gives a KINDER® SURPRISE® egg to their child, we hope a moment of joy and a smile will come from unwrapping the chocolate, the surprise inside and a toy for further play time together," says Price. "We were thrilled to have the support of Torontonians at the CNE and Canadians online across the country and we hope that every interaction with KINDER® keeps Canadians smiling."

As part of the fall program, KINDER® Canada also custom-built an interactive KINDER® Smile Booth where a surprise moment of joy, between parents and kids is captured through photo/video. Families have the opportunity to share their fun KINDER® smile moment via email, Facebook or Twitter. The KINDER® Smile Booth opened in mid-August at the Toronto Eaton Centre and moved to the CNE today. It will continue to travel across the country for months to come. Keep tabs on where where KINDER®'s Smile Booth will pop up next or create a virtual photo strip in our Smile Booth by joining the KINDER® Canada Fan Page: www.facebook.com/KinderCanada.

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.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
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.

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
