Skytap recently announced the availability of a Docker template in the Skytap
Cloud Public Template Library. Docker is an open platform for developers
and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. This new
template allows you to easily experiment with or deploy Docker-based
containers within Skytap Cloud.
To illustrate this, we’ll do the following: 1.Create a new Skytap Cloud
environment or configuration that is based on this Docker template. 2.Deploy
a Docker Ubuntu container and demonstrate a simple use case as described in
the Docker User Guide. 3.Create a new Docker Ubuntu container and configure
it to contain a MongoDB instance and then run it as described in the Docker
Examples web page

As a lifelong word junkie, I can honestly say that I've never seen more
debate, argument, and failure to reach an agreed upon definition of a word
than we're seeing over the word "DevOps." And while it can be frustrating to
find a definition that works for you, and not be swayed by the next essay or
cute video that gives a new interpretation-for nerds like me, the
ever-changing, wildly different beliefs of DevOps' meaning, and even its
origin are an absolute blast to pour over.

Ferris State University (FSU) is an accredited state university located in
Big Rapids, Michigan, offering multiple computing degree plans within its
Business/Technology Consortium. The college serves more than 14,000 on- and
off-campus students in the region.
I had the opportunity to sit down with Ferris State Professor Amy Buse to
learn more about how the school has provided its students with cutting-edge
cloud computing technology across a number of applications to better prepare
them for their careers after graduation.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a city or state that allows “happy
hour” (you’d be surprised how many states have banned it!) hopefully from
time to time you’re able to pop into a local establishment to kick off the
weekend a little early, or even continue to work or brainstorm in perhaps a
more relaxed setting.
Skytap is lucky to have a partner like Parasoft who not only offers an
amazing and mutually beneficial dev/test product—they’re also big fans of
the amazing discussions that can come out of a simple happy hour at a fun
location and with a great crowd.
We’re co-hostin... (more)
