Let’s Go Chipper!™ Eco-Educational App Releases New Episode to iTunes Nature-Inspired Children’s Series Excites Curiosity and Mindfulness

Corte Madera, CA, January 10, 2011 --(PR.com)-- With snow storms and winter weather keeping many families indoors - summer and outdoor activities seem unimaginable. So for parents looking for a guilt-free break to help entertain their children Bay Area based, IAGmedia, announces today the release of – Sally the Salmon – its second App episode in its award-winning eco-educational series Let’s Go Chipper!™ Into the Great Outdoors.

Sally the Salmon is an eco-educational adventure taking Chipper, a curious city squirrel, below the surface to experience the life of a salmon. Chipper and his friends travel from fresh water to salt water and back again playfully learning about habitats, salmon and underwater life, recycling, and the importance of keeping our waterways clean.

The animated episode is based on the published book “Out to Sea with Sally,” and features a “What Did We Learn?” section to help reinforce the message. Additionally, the APP includes bonus coloring pages to offer children extra activities and excite conversation about exploring the great outdoors as a family.

“Sally the Salmon is an eco-educational adventure inspiring respect for nature in young children,” says creator Stephanie Rach. “Our goal is to playfully connect children, in a variety of ways, so they will ask their parents to go on walks, hikes, or camping trips.” For teachers the story is correlated meeting national academic standards in science, social skills, and arts & literature.

Created and produced by Bay Area based IAGmedia, a conscientious family-lifestyle media company, the series is also available as physical books, DVDs and products via the Let’s Go Chipper website. The Company environmentally packages its products and manufactures almost entirely in the USA using FSC certified papers and soy based inks. Additionally, a portion of proceeds directly support educational and scholarship programs that connect children with nature-based experiences.

IAGmedia will release five additional episodes by March and will launch its summer Let’s Go Chipper tour beginning in April. Parents, teachers, and community leaders can become Chipper Ambassadors by contacting the company via its Let’s Go Chipper website or Facebook page.

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.

This sixteen (16) hour course provides an introduction to DevOps, the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster.
Authorization of web applications developed in the cloud is a fundamental problem for security, yet companies often build solutions from scratch, which is error prone and impedes time to market. This talk shows developers how they can (instead) build on-top of community-owned projects and frameworks for better security.Whether you build software for enterprises, mobile, or internal microservices, security is important. Standards like SAML, OIDC, and SPIFFE help you solve identity and authentication, but for them authorization is out of scope. When you need to control "who can do what" in your app, you are on your own.
The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
