How does it work? Wacom is asking its social media followers to comment on its channels with the name of their loved one and a special interest they might have, using the hashtag, #LoveWacom.  For example, one could ask, "I would like to send a Valentine's card to my girlfriend who likes to ski. #LoveWacom. Von Glitschka will then take the request and put together a Valentine's drawing. Wacom's social media team will post the Valentine's on a Facebook album for the user to share with their Valentine. If the number of requests exceeds the production capabilities of Mr. Glitschka, Wacom's talented team of artists are prepared to chip in with some creations of their own should the need arise.

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing at Cloudera, covered the ins and outs of Hadoop, and how it can help cloud-based businesses.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
