"Each night TBN's Praise the Lord features compelling guests, great music, and a live audience from one of our international TBN studios," said Mr. Crouch. "And these same facilities — now including our Chicago studio — produce much of the quality entertaining and inspirational programming enjoyed by millions of TBN viewers around the world."

That includes popular national programs from two Chicago area Christian leaders: James MacDonald, pastor of Chicago's multi-campus Harvest Bible Chapel; and Gregory Dickow, who pastors Chicago's Life Changers International Church.

"TBN and WWTO have been an important part of Chicago's Christian community for decades," said Pastor Dickow. "We're thrilled to join in celebrating this beautiful new facility, and look forward to partnering with TBN in reaching out to Chicago and the world with life-changing programming."

In addition to Gregory Dickow, James MacDonald, and other Chicago area Christian and community leaders, TBN's Matthew Crouch and wife Laurie will be on hand September 11th to greet guests and to host the first Praise the Lord show from the new facility. Among the special guests will be the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

"We're looking forward to this special evening kicking off TBN's new presence and commitment to the city of Chicago," said Mr. Crouch. "We invite everyone from the area to join us in this special celebration."

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

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.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

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.
