By David Nield August 10, 2016How To  Operating system updates are a necessary evil, like taxes and car MOTs: they can be a real chore, but they’re essential for a happy and peaceful life. You might not care for Windows updates, but they keep you protected, squash nasty bugs and generally keep the OS running as smoothly as possible. Speaking of running smoothly, however, these updates don’t always do that. In recent versions of Windows Microsoft has tried to make the process as pain-free as possible, but with so many hardware and software configurations out there, there’s always the chance that some unexpected problem will crop up. But if it does, don’t panic – we’ve got you covered. Read on to learn how to fix common problems with Windows updates. 1. Make sure the updates really are stuck We’re going to cover a lot of ground here for several versions of Windows and a variety of ‘stuck’ scenarios, so you may have to tweak some of these steps to suit your situation and software. The first point to make

I recently became a technical product manager at work and this puts me in charge of a team of engineers for the first time. Up until January I was a developer who was upset at how many meetings I had. So I ran an experiment for the last six months which consisted of a few new behaviors: No stand-ups No planning at regular intervals No retros All meetings are optional This may sound extreme. But there is some logic to this madness. I wanted the team to know I trusted them. To know that it’s ok to tackle tech debt, explore, and work at their own pace. I laid out the goals for the quarter and trusted that the work would get done. Then I got the fuck out of the way. Would you believe it: work got done. A lot of it. We were an extremely productive team that responded to change and nailed every goal we

Mimecast is excited to announce we have acquired Solebit, a leading security technology provider. A key component of Mimecast’s email solution architecture, Solebit’s differentiated technology has already been protecting our customers with Mimecast’s Targeted Threat Protection globally against the ever-growing, complex threat landscape as a core solution partner. Realizing the opportunity to change the game for you and your customers with a solution that features a rare combination of stronger protection with higher performance is what led to Mimecast’s decision to make Solebit’s technology ours. We believe the evasion-aware, signature-less, technology has the power to change the game for cybersecurity. The combination of Solebit and Mimecast provides high performance and efficiency combined with tremendous threat protection efficacy—a powerful and rare combination of capabilities. As with Ataata, the security awareness and training company recently brought into the family of Mimecast solutions in early July, Solebit complements Mimecast’s core cyber resilience platform that includes a messaging solution proven at more than 30,000 organizations globally and a newly emerging Web Security offering that’s currently an Early Adopter program and

When building a real-world mobile application there are a ton of essential basic requirements. You need to have a way to authenticate users, you want to track user engagement & usage, & you probably want to be able t Source: Building Serverless Mobile Applications with React Native & AWS
“Empty highway road in through a colorful desert” by Johannes Plenio on Unsplash NOTE: This is Part 1 of a multi-part series. Part 2 is here. Target Audience Are you a developer looking to shift your career towards a more DevOps model? Are you are a classically trained Ops person and you would like to get a feeling of what this whole DevOps thing is all about? Or are you neither, and simply looking for a career change and have no idea where to start? If so, read on! Finally, if you have been doing this DevOps thing for years now, you might still find this useful as a validation of where we are and where this is going. What’s This, Now? First, what is DevOps? You can google the definitions and wade through all that buzzword extravaganza but know that most are embarrassingly long word salads stuffed into giant run-on sentences. (See what I did here?) So, I’ll save you the clicks and distill it down: DevOps is a way to deliver software with shared pain and responsibility. That’s
