CHAPEL HILL, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Boardwalks are so evocative of summer fun that they have inspired songs, movies and now one memorable evening at the Residence Inn Chapel Hill. Between 5 and 7 p.m. on June 11, 2014, guests and locals can enjoy the best of boardwalk entertainment while discovering what makes this property one of travelers' favorites among hotels near Research Triangle Park, NC.
For two hours, the grounds of this Chapel Hill lodging will enchant visitors with live entertainment, miniature-golf contests, beanbag tosses and, to document the fun, a carnival photo booth.
To keep revelers energized, The Boardwalk Bash will offer a variety of tasty treats. Visitors can indulge in nostalgic cotton candy, or refuel with something more substantial like hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken. A popcorn station, whose salty, buttery snacks are generally irresistible, will complement the summertime-inspired strawberry and lemon desserts available. Plus guests can sip non-alcoholic, tropical drinks or try something a little stronger at the wine and beer tasting.
Of course, no boardwalk experience would be complete without prizes, and the ones available at this event are a far cry from the oversized stuffed animals usually won at carnivals. Tickets to a performance at Durham Performing Arts, a show at Carolina Theatre and a performance at Carolina Performing Arts are all up for grabs, as are gift certificates to the Aveda Institute Chapel Hill and The Loop. The grand prize is even more spectacular. One lucky winner will receive a two-night stay at his/her choice of a getaway to Charlotte or Wilmington, plus dinner for two.
As guests explore the entertainment and food, they will also see what sets this property apart from other Chapel Hill, NC hotels. Its studio and one- and two-bedroom suites are outfitted with stainless-steel appliances, luxurious bedding and 37-inch, HD, LCD televisions, while amenities like complimentary daily hot breakfasts and a hotel theater with movies and a pool table make every day feel like a vacation. After all, escape, whether it's for a few hours during The Boardwalk Bash or a few weeks for a business trip, is something this property does exceptionally well.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

BlueBox bridge the chasm between development and infrastructure. Hosting providers are taking standardization and automation too far.

Operations-as-a-Service is what BlueBox does. BlueBox utilizes development tools such as OpenStack, EMC Razor, Opscode’s Chef and BlueBox's proprietary tools give the power to do the unor...

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in Action and founder...
