Smartphones Have Flattened the Internet Curve

One of the sessions I attended at FOSE 2012 was titled: “What the Research Shows: The Future of Mobile.” It featured two researchers, Dr. David Metcalf of the University of Central Florida, and Aaron Smith, of the Pew Internet and American Life Project. These gentlemen focus on researching how and why we use the internet, and what we use it for. Mobile is of particular interest to these researchers because of how it has completely changed the demographics of internet users. Smartphones have flattened the internet curve, and introduced a new demographic to web services. This has forced agencies to adopt mobile strategies that provide high quality of mobile services to their constituents. As the number of smartphone users continues to outpace broadband connections, services need to be both accessible to traditional web users and mobile users. However, these need to b... (more)

Constructing Services with SOA & Open Source Java

The Jedi mind trick is a Force power that can influence the actions of weak-minded sentient beings. Vendors will often try to apply the Jedi mind trick in selling silver-bullet software solutions that solve global warming and stop celebrity feuding while enabling service-based architecture development. Let's quickly put on our aluminum foil caps and repel the Jedi mind trick by turning to open source solutions. Service-based architectures are being touted as the next step in reaching programming nirvana. With these marching orders it's often difficult to build a framework that allows for simple service creation. This framework should also be flexible, scalable, and lightweight as well as easy in exposing services externally. Without the correct framework(s) and guardrails in place your application services can quickly become a jumbled mess. Circular dependencies, ma... (more)
