He joins TriForce Token's growing advisory of gaming, blockchain and computer security experts that already includes individuals such as Vadim Bulatov, a marketing lead and games industry veteran with an impressive portfolio that includes World of Warships and Master of Orion.

"TriForce Tokens have big ambitions to shake up the gaming industry with the introduction of unique strategies to harmonize the games community. I recognize the exceptional aspects that this project is introducing to the industry and with its strong backing from the business division of a globally-recognized University in the UK plus the advisory team, it is a serious contender for this space. We look forward to helping this project grow and the team to realize their vision." – David Drake, Chairman at LDJ Capital.

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.
