Agile Outsourcing
Wed, Feb 8th 2017 12:00p   Stephan H Wissel
The problem Outsourcing is a "special" animal. Typically the idea is to save cost by letting a service provider execute work. The saving cost happens because the service provider is supposed to be able to perform this actions at scale. Increasingly outsourcing deals are motivated by a skill squeeze. So instead of maintaining in-house expertise, rely on the vendors to keep the light on. This is where the trouble starts. Negotiations on outsourcing contracts revolves around price (drive it down

SAML and the Command Line
Mon, Jan 30th 2017 4:41p   Stephan H Wissel
One of the best kept secrets of Connections Cloud S1 is the Traveler API. The API allows interactions that are missing from the Admin UI, like deleting a specific device or implementing an approval workflow. Unfortunately the API only offers authentication via SAML, OAuth or BasicAuth are missing. So any application interacting with the API needs to do The SAML Dance. That's annoying when you have an UI to use, and a formidable challenge when you have a command line application, like a cron Jo

GIT deploy your static sites - Part 1
Thu, Jan 12th 2017 5:26a   Stephan H Wissel
When you, in principal, like the idea to serve SPA from the http server you will encounter the pressing question: where do babies come from how to get your application deployed (applies to nodeJS applications too, but that is part of another story) onto the http server. On Bluemix that's easy: just use a Pipeline For mere mortal environments there are several options: Just FTP them - insecure unless you use sftp/scp. Big pain here: deleting obsolete files Setup rsync. When done with a ssh cer

When you, in principal, like the idea to serve SPA from the http server, you will encounter the pressing question: where do babies come from how to get your application deployed onto the http server? This applies to nodeJS applications too, but that is part of another story for another time. On Bluemix that's easy: just use a Pipeline.

Serving Single Page Applications with Domino
Wed, Jan 11th 2017 9:14a   Stephan H Wissel
Single Page Applications (SPA) are all the rage. They get developed with AngularJS, ReactJS or {insert-your-framework-of-choice}. Those share a few communialities: hhe application is served off a static web server data is provided via an API, typically reading/writing JSON via REST or graph authentication is often long lasting (remember me...) based on JWT authentication is highly flexible: login with {facebook|google|linkedin|twitter} or a corporate account.

Lessons from Project OrangeBox
Tue, Jan 3rd 2017 5:48a   Stephan H Wissel
Project OrangeBox, the Solr free search component was launched after the experiments with Java8, Vert.x and RxJava in TPTSNBN concluded. With a certain promise we were working on a tight dead line and burned way more midnight oil that I would have wished for. Anyway, I had the opportunity to work with great engineers and we shipped as promised. There are quite some lesson to be learned, here we go (in no specific order): Co-locate The Verse team is spread over the globe: USA, Ireland, Belarus,
