For those of us in the tech sector, jet travel is part of the deal. It can be time consuming and mind numbing.

CTP’s own Robert Christiansen, a Doppler podcast co-host, goes a step farther: He’s interviewed dozens of tr…
 
DevOps has come a long way in the past decade. In a report released more than a year ago, Forrester declared that the practice had reached “escape velocity,” with more than half of all enterprises implementing and expanding DevOps processes. But, according to some in the field, gaps still exist between the dev and the ops sides of most organization…
 
Over the past 10 years, the power structure has shifted inside IT organizations. Maintaining the infrastructure used to be the top priority, so infrastructure teams tended to control more resources and command more respect than their counterparts overseeing applications. Today, that equation has flipped. Businesses need to move faster, so they’ve e…
 
Software developers are a prideful group. They like to create things, figure out their own short cuts and come up with new ways to innovate on the fly. But sometimes, developers’ inner creativity can be the biggest thing holding them back. There are still times when relying on tried and tested tools can help get a project done more quickly and more…
 
Microservices have become a popular software development technique in recent years.

We’ve been through several major technology paradigm shifts – from mainframe to client server to internet to, now, cloud.

Re…
 
It’s a brave new world when it comes to data privacy and security, as companies work to comply with regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act and GDPR.

We dis…
 
This week we’re switching things up and digging into a topic we know even better than cloud: What it’s like working at CTP.

Attain a new AWS, Azure o…
