IoT Boot Camp Compilation

February 13th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, IoT No Comment yet

Last week Embarcadero ran their IoT Boot Camp over 4 days of very well received sessions. However, they were not in an ideal timezone for many people in Asia, so I thought I’d pull together the recordings and other materials in a single post to make it easy for people to work through them.

Each day’s session builds on the previous, but the nice thing is you can stop whenever you’ve learned enough. If you know someone who doesn’t use RAD Studio but just wants to learn about coding Arduino, point them at Day 1. If you want to go a step further and integrate with RAD Studio, but have no plans to scale this out, stop after Day 2. Or stay for the whole thing and see how you can go from cool experiment to supported business solution.  (more…)

Webinar-Roundtable

Embarcadero Roundtable Discussion with Atanas Popov, Nick Hodges and Malcolm Groves

February 9th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, Events, News No Comment yet

We’ve worked with Embarcadero to get a special Asia Pacific webinar scheduled.

Atanas Popov (Embarcadero General Manager), Nick Hodges (Director of Product Management) and our own Malcolm Groves will be presenting a Roundtable webinar and Q&A. Up for discussion will be Embarcadero’s strategy, new product initiatives, as well as the product roadmaps and plans.

This is a great opportunity to both hear direct from the people driving the direction of RAD Studio, as well as throw your questions into the mix.

The webinar will take place next Tuesday, the 14th of February (22 years since a rather important product launch) at 9am Sydney time.

Registration and more details here.

Embarcadero Webinars in Asia-Friendly timezone

January 30th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, Events, News No Comment yet

After feedback from a number of customers, we’ve worked with Embarcadero to get a third timezone added to the regular webinars. This works out to be 1pm Sydney time, so should make it easier for those who want to attend live but need to do it during business hours.

If you haven’t seen the schedule, you can check it out here and register for any that interest you. During the sessions we’ll be answering any questions you have, so we look forward to seeing you online.

Stage View - Pipeline Job

Gotcha with Jenkins Pipeline as Code

January 4th, 2017 Posted by Cloudbees, DevOps No Comment yet

What you need to know

Manually build a Jenkins Pipeline job at least once, if you’ve set up the job to build automatically when a change is pushed to an SCM like Git. I scratched my head for some time about this, checking logs and double-checking configurations before I figured out why. The short answer: RTFM.

The long answer

Now that everyone’s using continuous integration (CI) a logical move is to apply CI principles to software build automation, not only to source code. The Jenkins Pipeline job was introduced a couple of years ago, and defines a job entirely in Groovy script. There’s an option to include the job definition as a file, Jenkinsfile, in a source code repository; then a change to Jenkinsfile (not only code files) in the repository can trigger a new build.

Setting up Fedora Server for the RAD Studio on Linux Beta

December 23rd, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero 1 comment

Jim McKeeth has posted a couple of articles about getting Linux set up for the RAD Studio on Linux beta. In Part 1 he mentions you can use either Red Hat\Fedora or Ubuntu, and then in Part 2, he shows the steps to follow for Ubuntu Server.

However, those steps won’t work if you’re using Fedora, so below I’ve taken his steps and altered them to work on Fedora: (more…)

Introducing SubHub

December 12th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero 1 comment

Sample applications are a dual-edged sword. When you’re starting out with some new technology, you want them small and focussed, so you can learn just the single thing you’re trying to learn without getting distracted by unrelated bits.

However, once you know how the individual technologies work, the real question becomes about how you should combine them to build something larger so that it will be performant, maintainable, stable, etc. At this point small sample apps are useless, you want something more “real world”.

I’ve been thinking about this for RAD Server recently. We’ve been doing a number of RAD Server projects for customers, however none of them are applications we can share. What I really wanted, I decided, was a customer to come along who was happy to publicly share all the details about the app we built them. Unsurprisingly, those customers are not that common.

Code Partners at Yow 2016 Sydney

December 7th, 2016 Posted by Events, News No Comment yet

Summer in Australia is Tech Conference season. We had DevOpsDays Sydney last week, and this week it’s time for my favourite conference of the year: Yow.

Every year I attend Yow I come away feeling like I’ve had my brain stretched in several new directions and wishing that I could skip sleep for the next month to try out everything I’ve learned. (more…)

DevOpsDays Sydney 2016

December 7th, 2016 Posted by DevOps, Events, News 1 comment

Several members of the Code Partners team were at the Sydney DevOpsDays last week.

If you’ve never been, DevOpsDays events are volunteer organised conferences where there are scheduled speakers in the morning, but the afternoon is broken up into what they refer to as Open Spaces. In Sydney there were 3 or 4 Open Space rooms, and each day people would stand up and propose topics. Proposing a topic doesn’t mean necessarily you have to present it, it may be more that you hope other people will also want to have a general discussion on the same topic. Then the attendees get to vote, and the most popular sessions get allocated to rooms. (more…)
