Top 5 Benefits of Agile Development – TG Daily 6/8

One of the most popular practices used in software development is the Agile development methodology. The agile development methodology and approach is used to foster creativity, productivity and ultimately delivery of a range of products including web applications, mobile apps, websites, software, and product support best practices. With a flexible approach to development, planning, testing, and delivery, teams within companies are able to better respond to client and market demands. An approach that encourages focusing on the immediate task at hand and fixing or solving this immediate problem, allows all members of the agile team (developers, testers, product management, and technical writers) work cohesively to quickly deliver a solution

Node.js popular amongst enterprise software developers– SD Times – 6/21

More than three-fourths of developers believe one open-source project is the most employable project expertise for the next year: Node.js. According to a new survey from NodeSource, enterprise software developers are not only gravitating towards the JavaScript runtime environment, they also believe new companies will be created from open-source projects. In fact, 91% of respondents believe that this is the case, and while Node.js was the most chosen option for open-source projects, Docker came in close behind, with MongoDB on its tail.

What are containers and why do you need them– – 6/27

Containers are a solution to the problem of how to get software to run reliably when moved from one computing environment to another. This could be from a developer's laptop to a test environment, from a staging environment into production, and perhaps from a physical machine in a data center to a virtual machine in a private or public cloud. Put simply, a container consists of an entire runtime environment: an application, plus all its dependencies, libraries and other binaries, and configuration files needed to run it, bundled into one package. By containerizing the application platform and its dependencies, differences in OS distributions and underlying infrastructure are abstracted away.
