Re: CSS does not use the XML syntax. Why not?

XML/XPath is definitely a rational solution. CSS is yet another textual language which needs a specific interpreter. For that, I don't like either Javascript or JSON : it remains me that too many programming languages are still using a C-like syntax, created so many years ago. I still think XML as the new ASCII for machine-to-machine transfers : whereas a structure exists, it should be expressed using an XML notation, that's all !

With an XML notation ("CSSX" ?), programs could generate, modify, compare them, and so on, much more easily.

For one of my customers, I have build a small CSS to CSSX application to be able to patch some CSS files using an XML patch notation before reconvert them to CSS via XSL-T.

On the other hand, I still think it is much easier for human beings to read and understand CSS than CSSX but the problem should be just an editor or a rendering problem.

Sorta yeah.  Makes sense.   Scrubs clean some old messes
with its powerful abrasive power or something like that.
Far more effective on caked on messes than mere SOAP.

Still, there's some beautiful austerity and maturity of thought
to what's emerging in the XML / XPath / XSLT / XQuery
world that draws on a lot of experience and perspective
"the kids" clearly lack.    It'll all get a lot more interesting
when things like the ajax world start to get coalesced and
rationalized and standardized a bit more.  "The kids" will be
shocked :-)

Thanks,

Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
DevOps is a world surrounded by information, starting from a single commit and ending in roll out to production. In this talk, I'll introduce you to the world of Taboola DevOps data collection, to better understand what goes on under the hood. The system we've developed in-house helps us collect and analyse the entire DevOps process from the very first commit all the way to production. It provides us a full clear view with a drill-down toolset that helps keep us away from the dark side. Our KPI's moved from being abstracted ideas to data driven goals, which we can measure and act upon. We're living in a data driven world when all business components are based on our clients action and reaction, why not doing the same thing within our DevOps eco-system?
After years of investments and acquisitions, CloudBlue was created with the goal of building the world's only hyperscale digital platform with an increasingly infinite ecosystem and proven go-to-market services. The result? An unmatched platform that helps customers streamline cloud operations, save time and money, and revolutionize their businesses overnight. Today, the platform operates in more than 45 countries and powers more than 200 of the world's largest cloud marketplaces, managing more than 27 million enterprise cloud subscriptions valued at more than $1 billion in revenue.
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. His expertise is in automating deployment, management, and problem resolution in these environments, allowing his teams to run large transactional applications with high availability and the speed the consumer demands.
Containerized software is riding a wave of growth, according to latest RightScale survey. At Sematext we see this growth trend via our Docker monitoring adoption and via Sematext Docker Agent popularity on Docker Hub, where it crossed 1M+ pulls line. This rapid rise of containers now makes Docker the top DevOps tool among those included in RightScale survey. Overall Docker adoption surged to 35 percent, while Kubernetes adoption doubled, going from 7% in 2016 to 14% percent.
