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.

As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
