LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Long-time fundraiser helps community organizations grow and thrive.

The Abbot Kinney Festival, which draws crowds of over 100,000 each year, returns on September 27, 2015 for the 31st year in a row. The festival, famous for its exciting live music, food and vendors, is a fundraiser for the Abbot Kinney Festival Association, a 501(c)(3), grant making organization, that supports community-based organizations in Venice with an emphasis on youth, community, and the arts.

The Association is proud to have supported such community organizations as A Window Between Worlds, Coding is Cool, the reDiscover Center of Venice and many more. Proceeds from the renting of vendor booths, the popular KidsQuad and the beer gardens are directly reinvested in the community through the grant making program.

I think a lot of people come to the festival because it's such a great time–amazing music, food, and kids activities–but the festival is so much more than that. We are a fundraiser for the Association, which provides grants to local community organizations," says Donna Humphrey, Chair of the Abbot Kinney Festival Association.

"The support from the Abbot Kinney Festival Association came at just the right time for us. We operate on a shoestring budget and this grant will provide us the ability to expand our reach to visitors and locals alike.  This would not have been possible without the generous support of the Abbot Kinney Festival Association," says Tim Rudnick, Venice Oceanarium, Abbot Kinney Festival Association Community Grant Recipient.

This year's festival is being held September 27th from 10-6 on iconic Abbot Kinney Boulevard. The lineup includes the Venice Symphony, House of Vibe featuring Chali 2na, and Back of the Hand All-Stars among many others. And, one entire stage at the festival is dedicated to spoken word, with performances throughout the day. Food from such locals as Tarte Yogurt, Kogi BBQ, and Bean and Thyme among many more will also be on offer.

Full listings of the Food and Drink and the music lineup can be found on the Association's website: www.abbotkinney.org. As an addition to this year's festival, the newly inaugurated Venice Pop Up park will serve as a recharging station for festival goers.

Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

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...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential.
