Download our guide to continuous delivery with Spinnaker and Kubernetes.


The path to digital transformation is one that many companies, regardless of industry, are taking in order to bring products and services to market faster. As part of this transformation from traditional enterprise to modern software company, the role of IT is now a core part of business strategy with the responsibility of delivering software to users faster, safer and more efficiently.

Over the past few years, technology has evolved to enable this kind of delivery. The practice of continuous delivery has emerged as a way to enhance the ability of technical teams to deploy software to the end user faster, safer and more efficiently. Kenzan has paired two tools, Netflix’s Spinnaker as the preferred continuous delivery framework and Google’s Kubernetes as the preferred container management platform, in order to provide a continuous delivery solution that can support any enterprise that is pursuing digital transformation.

JavaScript still reigns as king for many developers. In Stack Overflow’s recent survey of 64,000 developers across the globe, JavaScript came out on top for the fifth year in a row as the most common programming language.

But with so many tools, libraries and frameworks in the Javascript ecosystem, how does a developer make sense of it all?

Kenzan’s director of engineering, Owen Buckley, shared his insight into the world of JavaScript during one of Kenzan’s latest tech meetups in Providence, Rhode Island. Owen cover’s some important aspects including language & specification, libraries & frameworks, and development & tooling.

If you didn’t get a chance to hear it live, check out the recording below:

Just a few weeks ago, ahead of their Spring One Conference, Pivotal launched the Partner Ready Program, designed to help businesses accelerate their digital transformation into the cloud. Kenzan is proud to have been named as an Advanced Partner in support of the Pivotal Cloud Foundry. As partners, some of our developers were given access to a deep well of knowledge around the cloud foundry as they work to understand all its capabilities.

Nicholas Eden-Walker, a Technical Architect based in our Rhode Island office was part of Pivotal’s partner immersion training where he learned what you can do with the enterprise-grade cloud foundry.

Lucky for us, he shared a little bit of what he learned in one of Kenzan’s weekly lunch & learns. We’re paying it forward by sharing his presentation below:

 

As we enter a new era in the Internet of Things, millions of devices are sending out streams of data. Analyzing this data can be a huge undertaking, but by combining AWS services, one can create a scalable dashboard. 

We hosted another Lunch and Learn a few weeks ago, where Nicholas Sledgianowski and Charles Palczak gave an overview and demo, which you can find below. 

In order to create innovative, scalable and intelligent solutions for our clients, Kenzan believes that continued development is crucial. Learning from fellow Kenzanites is just way that our employees gain new skills, so each week we host a lunch and learn, for employees across all four of our offices to join in. 

Stay tuned for more videos from our Lunch & Learns.
