CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Summer is a time for lazy days and long vacations. But for those who either never got around to relaxing, or who wish it would last just a little bit longer, the Charlotte Marriott SouthPark is offering the chance to end the season on a high note. Its Family Movie Night Package is the perfect incentive to plan a weekend getaway, while its location near a bevy of family-friendly attractions promises to banish any vestige of the summer doldrums.
One of the biggest draws for visitors to this Carowinds Park hotel is, of course, the Carowinds amusement park. Home to thrill rides like the Southeast's tallest, fastest and longest rollercoaster (the Intimidator), Carowinds also boasts live entertainment, family rides, an interactive dinosaur exhibit and a 20-acre water park where two new waterslides added an extra 600 feet of splash-tastic adventure this summer.
But the amusement park isn't the only way for travelers to soak up the remaining days of summer. As one of the premier hotels near the SouthPark mall in Charlotte, this property is ideal for guests looking to stock up on back-to-school essentials or simply indulge in a little retail therapy at Burberry, Hermes, Neiman-Marcus and the like. And with golf, restaurants and the Charlotte Nature Museum (featuring an attractive butterfly pavilion) all nearby as well, guests will find plenty to see and do each day.
And the evenings, for those booking the Family Movie Night Package, can be just as exciting. After a day out and about, families can return to their deluxe rooms to relax together over a large pizza, popcorn, soda and an in-room movie. Complimentary continental breakfast for two at the hotel restaurant tops off what is undoubtedly the most family-friendly option among Charlotte getaway packages.
With summer's warm temperatures and relaxed pace drawing to a close, there's never been a better time to explore this SouthPark hotel in Charlotte, NC. Whether it's a family's first or final vacation of the season, it's bound to be the highlight of the year.
Guests can book the Family Movie Night Package, which is available Thursday through Sunday until December 26, 2014, by using the promotional code FM when making reservations.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

DevOps is the hottest moving target when it comes to software development methodologies. Many people fear that this fast-paced, barrier-breaking movement will leave information security best practices in the dust. Analysts provide recommendations to security professionals using bingo-laden terms like "moving security to the left" or "get a seat at the table." What we need are real-world examples and tactics for security practitioners to be part of DevOps. In his session at DevOps Summit, Andrew...
