SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Sydney may be known for many things (think harbours, opera houses and beaches), but that list is about to get one line longer. Thanks to the arrival of Executive Chef Hemant Dadlani, the restaurants at Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel at Circular Quay are poised to shine on Australia's culinary map. Not only does Dadlani bring more than a decade of diverse restaurant experience to the hotel, but his strategic thinking and culinary passion make him a powerful force in the kitchen. And that bodes well both for this hotel on Sydney's famous Pitt Street and for its hungry visitors.
Offering guests three distinctive dining options -- including one of the top restaurants in Sydney -- the hotel provides an option for every palate, whether it's cocktails in Macquarie Lounge, pub fare in the 162-year-old Customs House Bar or a spectacular seafood buffet in the elegant Icons Brasserie.
Fortunately for foodies, Dadlani's background complements the hotel's dynamic approach to food. Introduced to cooking by his mother in India, Dadlani initially pursued a degree in Hotel Management and Catering Technology. But after a tutorial by a South Indian Master Chef, Dadlani discovered his true calling in the kitchen and began a distinguished career that took him to properties around the world. In addition to working as the Executive Chef at Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia, Dadlani has re-conceptualised restaurants at Rosewood Little Dix Bay, opened the Apsara restaurant at Jade Mountain & Anse Chastanet Resorts in St. Lucia and turned around a failing Indian restaurant at Curacao's Hotel Kura Hulanda.
The accolades have followed accordingly. Bon Appetit readers, for example, might recognise Dadlani from its feature on the cooperative, small-scale farming project he helmed in the British Virgin Islands. Others might remember when he was featured in various magazines and books, or when he served as a guest chef at Conde Nast in New York.
Or, for the lucky few, perhaps Dadlani's accomplishments and prowess remain as-yet unknown, waiting to be discovered within this hotel's Sydney Harbour restaurants. That element of surprise, whether it arrives with the Tasmanian salmon steak at Icons, during high tea at Macquarie Lounge or over Moroccan-spiced lamb pizza at Customs House Bar, will only enhance the restaurant experience. After all, the property may attract visitors because of its location among hotels near the famous Sydney Opera House. But its restaurants, with Dadlani now at their helm, will be the reason people want to stay.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
