If you want to do the devops then you need to have a deep understanding of the principles, values, and concepts that drive it.

Devops may be a trendy topic, but it brings together important concepts that come from multiple sources.In this list, I recommend five books that help lay that conceptual groundwork.

All are highly influential and build an understanding of how you should think about scaled software delivery in large enterprises.[ What is devops? Discover how to transform software development. | Also: InfoWorld explains monitoring in the age of devops. ]While The Phoenix Project, The Devops Handbook, and Continuous Delivery form the core building blocks of the devops movement, those books should already be on the bookshelf of any devops enthusiast, and they are covered well in other listsmdash;such as George Hulmersquo;s ”5 great books on devops.” Here, I focus on books that provide additional context to these fundamental books and help frame the core issues.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Lazy initialization is a technique that defers the creation of an object until the first time it is needed.
In other words, initialization of the object happens only on demand. Note that the terms lazy initialization and lazy instantiation mean the same thingmdash;they can be used interchangeably.

By taking advantage of lazy initialization, you can improve the applicationrsquo;s performance by avoiding unnecessary computation and memory consumption.
In this article wersquo;ll look at how we can perform lazy initialization in C#.Letrsquo;s understand lazy loading with a simple example.

Consider two classes, Customer and Order.

The Customer class contains an Orders property that in turn references a collection of instances of the Order class.

The Orders collection may contain a large amount of data and may even need a database connection to connect to the database and retrieve records.
In such a case, there is no point in loading data in the Orders property until we need the data. Lazy initialization allows us to load the Orders collection only when the data is asked for.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
We live in a world where we like to name things.

That usage pattern arose when enterprises tried to avoid dependence on a single public cloud provider, when they chose specific services from each public cloud to get the best of each, or when they wanted both benefits.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Under pressure from organizations such as the Apache Software Foundation, Facebook is changing the licensing of its open source React JavaScript UI library to one considered less risky for developers.Beginning with next weekrsquo;s React 16 release, React will be licensed under the MIT open source license.

A point release of React 15 also will be offered next week based on the MIT license.[ Also on InfoWorld: 6 best JavaScript IDEs and 10 best JavaScript editors. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]That change in license removes a controversial term in the BSD + Patents license that Facebook had been using for React.

The BSD + Patent license stipulates that anyone using software released under it loses the license if they sue Facebook for patent infringement.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
