The New Texas Oil is Green Gold -- Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo

FORT WORTH, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/20/17 -- NFL players, patients, doctors, taxpayers, entrepreneurs, cultivators, media, job seekers, policy makers and other curious citizens gather in Fort Worth at the Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo to proclaim cannabis is medicine. The event, scheduled for April 21-23, will be held at the Fort Worth Conference Center.

"Texas Citizens have the unique opportunity to learn more about what is happening in State and Nationally at the 2nd Annual Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo in Ft. Worth this weekend," commented Demitri Downing -- Former Prosecutor and designer of the SWCCEXPO emerging market expo.

The future of medical marijuana is bright and the opportunities are limitless. Texas is on the front lines of the national evolution. With Jerry Jones and Jeff Sessions acknowledging and accepting medical marijuana, the future is clear: Cannabis is here to stay as a medicine, and this means an entire industry will be emerging here in Texas. What it looks like is up to you!

As decriminalization of cannabis spreads across Texas, debates continue in governing bodies about how medical marijuana will be responsibly implemented, and if and when other adult use occurs. This is potentially an economic opportunity that hasn't been seen since the great oil boom. For three days over the weekend of April 21-23rd in the Fort Worth area, American cannabis industry and national experts will discuss how to capitalize on this trend.

Texas is widely considered to be one of the most lucrative emerging cannabis markets. The Lone Star State has a burgeoning cannabis industry that's on the cusp of becoming one of the biggest U.S. markets.

"Texas Medical Cannabis is here to stay; everyone should be curious about what this emerging industry will look like and what the medicine does! With the Trump administration acknowledging the distinction between adult use and medicine, and even Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones making comments supportive of cannabis use, it's just a matter of how fast the gushing from this industry begins," Downing emphasizes.

This event features a lineup of celebrities, former pro football players, medical professionals and more, all working cohesively to bring about increased cannabis awareness. The Conference features three jam-packed days of cannabis information, education and networking -- including a major expo with 125 exhibitors.

At a special event prior to the conference will be held on Friday April 21, join former NFL players Marvin Washington, Boo Williams, Darren Long and many more athletes and medical professionals on the discussion of cannabis and NFL. Organizers are hoping Jerry Jones comes in support (http://proathletesprocannabis.com).

Come see what the new world of cannabis will become in the foreseeable future. Even more important is to learn about this business opportunity which is still in its infant stages. Visit Fort Worth as the American cannabis industry spends a weekend in Texas to explore this emerging trend.

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...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
