Today's announcement builds upon ThoughtWorks' commitment to helping organizations continuously improve and deliver quality software.  Today's hypercompetitive business environment requires rapid innovation and maintaining a steady flow of the most important work between all roles. One of the toughest delivery obstacles is the ubiquitous silo.  Go breaks down these silos, providing all teams a clear view of the delivery pipeline, slashing inefficiencies and redundancy.

"I'm delighted that ThoughtWorks is releasing Go as free, open source software," said Jez Humble, Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks and co-author of Continuous Delivery. "Our intent is that Go becomes part of the standard open source devops toolchain. This will serve our wider goal here at Thoughtworks of making continuous delivery standard practice across the industry."

"Thoughtworks' Go is the heart of our continuous delivery platform.  Go is the central tool that integrates our continuous delivery pipeline into one cohesive visualization.  It allows us to see the progression and status of our artifacts from check-in to deployment. Go is an exceptional continuous delivery tool and we are excited about this new chapter for Thoughtworks and the open source community," said John Esser, Director of Engineering Productivity at Ancestry.com.  "Go becoming open source will allow many to contribute to the platform and offer the ability to supply more concrete suggestions in the way of features and functionality.  I am excited by the evolution of Go and to see how the larger community can leverage the best ideas and create a more robust continuous delivery platform."

Continuous delivery focuses on accelerating the rate at which we can learn from each other - and from our customers.  At ThoughtWorks we believe in sharing what we learn to help our industry improve.  To download Go for free and join the community, visit www.go.cd/download.

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.
"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
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.
