Simon Says Give(R) Selected By Mall of America(R) for Partnership During The World's Largest Birthday Celebration

EAGAN, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/17 -- Simon Says Give, a Minnesota-based, youth-led nonprofit, celebrates its 5th birthday with Mall of America, celebrating its 25th birthday, by packing 2,500 birthday boxes in the Mall of America Rotunda on August 8th, 2017 from 8am-8pm. Approximately 500 of those boxes will be sent outside of Minnesota to our chapter locations and partners across the United States.

Mall of America has been world class to work with as we received thousands of items and dollars that all go towards the creation, purchase, and supply of birthday boxes for this event. Additionally, many of the stores inside Mall of America have donated thousands of materials that will provide joy to our birthday kids.

The Simon Says Give Team, along with Mall of America, is expecting to have over 1,000 volunteers coming to the event, where over 25,000 children will be impacted by their involvement. With that said, we still encourage you and as many friends and family members you can get to come to volunteer with us that day and make a huge impact on the lives of many children in need. To sign up and volunteer for this event, visit: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/904044da9ab2ea13-mall3.

Prior to our World's Largest Birthday Celebration event, we will conduct our High Five for Supplies, where we pack as many backpacks as possible with school supplies students may need to complete the upcoming academic year. This event takes place at Saint Thomas Academy (949 Mendota Heights Rd., Mendota Heights, MN, 55120) starting August 3rd and ending August 6th. Our goal this year is to pack 10,000 backpacks and we are currently on our way to reaching that goal. You can sign up for that event by clicking on this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/904044da9ab2ea13-high4.

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...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
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.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
