GRAPEVINE, Texas, Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Development Funding IV ("UDF IV" or the "Trust") (NASDAQ: UDF) announced today that its Distribution Reinvestment Plan (the "DRIP") is open for enrollment. The DRIP provides a convenient and cost-efficient way for existing shareholders to purchase additional common shares of beneficial interest in the Trust by automatically reinvesting the cash distributions paid on their common shares without paying the Trust any selling commissions, fees or service charges. The purchase price for common shares purchased through the DRIP will be equal to the current market value of the Trust's shares as of the distribution payment date, calculated based upon the average of Trust's opening and closing prices per share on the distribution payment date, as reported by NASDAQ.
The DRIP is voluntary and shareholders can participate if they currently own the Trust's common shares and such shares are registered in their name. If shareholders own shares that are registered in another name (for example, a bank, broker or other nominee), the shareholders should contact their bank, broker or other nominee to enroll in the DRIP. If shareholders participate in the DRIP through a broker, they should confirm with their broker if additional brokerage fees apply.
Registered shareholders who enroll in the DRIP five business days prior to the record date in any given month will be able to participate in the DRIP for that month. For example, registered shareholders whose enrollment forms are submitted in good order in accordance with the DRIP by August 8, 2014, five business days prior to the August 15, 2014 record date, will have their August 25, 2014 monthly distribution reinvested in the Trust's common shares.
Eligible shareholders of record may elect to participate in the DRIP at any time by completing the enrollment form and returning it to the DRIP's administrator. Enrollment forms may be obtained by contacting United Development Funding IV Investor Services at (214) 370-8960 or (800) 859-9338, or by writing to them at 1301 Municipal Way, Suite 100, Grapevine, Texas 76051. Enrollment forms are also available online at www.udfiv.com. Participants should carefully read the prospectus describing the DRIP, which has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 on Form S-3 on August 4, 2014, before opting to participate.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of offers to buy any securities. The offering is being made only by means of a prospectus. Anyone seeking a prospectus and enrollment application should visit www.udfiv.com or call (800) 859-9338 and read the prospectus carefully before making any investment decisions.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

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.

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...

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
