Summer school on Context Aware Software Systems – Summary

View of the chapel at Schloss Dagstuhl

From September 15 to 20, TU Dresden’s GRK 1907 hosted the summer-school on “Development, Deployment, and Runtime of Context-Aware Software Systems”, with 3 days of invited talks and discussion among professors, students and experts in the field at the world-renown Schloss Dagstuhl, followed by 2 days of on-premises hands-on practical sessions. SPLab Team member Panos Gkikopoulos was there to attend and to present a poster of his PhD work based on MAO, though only got to experience the Dagstuhl part due to a busy schedule.

Reflections on software artefact quality tutorial

Our work in the Service Prototyping Lab at Zurich University of Applied Sciences consists of applied research, prototype development and conveying knowledge to industry. In this context, we have worked hard over the previous two years to gather educational and hands-on material, including our own contributions, for increasingly valuable tutorials. From single lectures to half-day and eventually full-day tutorials, we aim at both technology enthusiasts and experienced engineers who are open for new ideas and sometimes surprising facts. In this reflective blog post, we report on this week’s experience of giving the full-day tutorial on microservice artefact observation and quality assessment.

Review of Azure Blockchain meetup

As reported before, we investigate quality characteristics of decentralised applications in analogy to the usual assessment of microservice artefacts. We are happy to report on how we shared the intermediate results at the most recent Azure Blockchain meetup in Zurich, apart from reporting on the event itself.

IC2E/ICFC 2019 Review: From Kubernetes to Micro-Clouds

Early conference start = no tourists yet on Charles bridge

From June 24 to 27, an academic double-conferences has been taking place in Prague: IC2E 2019, the venerable seventh IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering, and ICFC 2019, the recently spun off first IEEE International Conference on Fog Computing. The Service Prototyping Lab at Zurich University of Applied Sciences contributed a tutorial on Kubernetes application engineering on the first conference day. The important research-inspired message conveyed is that Kubernetes is a nice container management platform, but not a cloud platform per se, and characterised by a lack of tools to ensure simplicity and quality in applications, and still emerging understanding of how to design applications in a technically and economically optimal way. This blog post reports on some of the conference discussion topics as a service for those who could not attend..
