Don’t kludge serverless cloud applications

David Linthicum

It’s a funny business. Once we remove some core steps from application development (such as having to provision cloud resources like storage and compute) developers take this freedom to an illogical yet understandable conclusion. In some cases, planning and design is being tossed out the window. Considering that serverless is self-provisioning, and applications can be designed and built dynamically on the fly, and if we’re not doing infrastructure planning, well, why not? [

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

As senior tech leaders, we often fall prey to thinking that a “good idea” and logical case is sufficient to get the desired response and result. We might be trying to get our CEO on-board with investment in a new technology or a rearchitecture effort, or we might want culture or process changes by our team. Our “good idea” is simply the beginning. An idea must be communicated; a case must be made; and ultimately other people must be persuaded to get onboard. Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.
