The next generation of microservice infrastructures is here. Join this webinar to get all of your microservices, MRA and service mesh architecture questions answered.
Bringing microservices and service mesh architectures to life in working code is a huge and novel challenge. NGINX makes this easier with Ingenious, a demo app that is part of the Microservices Reference Architecture (MRA). Ingenious works across multiple architectures, bringing the differences and advantages of each to life.
In this webinar we discuss how Ingenious is (mostly) the same, but also the differences in its code, features, and runtime behavior, as it’s implemented in various architectural models.
CRM and the Client – Matter Life Cycle: How to move from thinking about CRM as a system to a systematic way of thinking about CRM
The history of Legal CRM is an interesting one, and there has been spectacular evolution in the technology available to enhance your Client Relationship Management. Ingenious tools designed to be proactive; working tirelessly behind the scenes to intuitively serve the right information to the right people at the right time. Removing the tedious leg-work in data input & maintenance and making clever connections will make your partners truly excited about the benefits a well-designed CRM can bring.
Join us for our next webinar and discover the “Golden Rules” that guarantee your investment is realising the ROI it deserves. We will get straight to the heart of the five key issues that we know from experience, need to be addressed for true CRM success!
What is what3words? Well according to The Economist it's "An ingenious new system of addresses that can locate any place in the country—and, indeed, in the world" and we at Tech Talks agree! Clare Jones (CCO) joins me on the pod to talk about the most simple, yet innovative piece of tech you're going to find out about today!
Also in this week's show we're talking about these articles:
Enjoy the show!
In this webinar, learn about the Proxy Model, the Router Mesh Model, the Fabric Model, and the Ingenious app – all part of the NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture.
More specifically, join this webinar to learn
- When to take the leap into deploying microservices
- Why you should consider adopting the MRA for your app
- How to choose a model that works for your app
- How to start the process of converting a monolith to microservices
This presentation, FINTECH: Good and Bad News for Inclusive Sustainable Finance, will explore issues surrounding the rapid deployment of computerized electronic platforms, cryptocurrencies and algorithms now disrupting legacy financial firms and their models.
Good News: this disruption was long overdue and welcome where it overturns inefficient, inequitable, over-priced services, democratizing lending, investment, banking, payments, remittance and widens easy availability of transactions. Widespread adoption of Blockchain-based distributed ledgers offer closer monitoring of financial ethics and performance. Bad News: this electronic, information-rich disruption of legacy finance ranges from algorithmic high-frequency trading (HFT) we explored for the UN Inquiry (2015) to the rapid co-option and buyouts of companies in the FINTECH 100 by the big legacy banks; the excessive run-up in pre-IPO valuations, focusing on big wins, short-term profits – evidence of the same excesses and unsustainable practices needing reform. Even the ingenious market-based reform in IEX’s platform’s technological designed “speed bump” which levels the playing field for investors also can be subverted to extort fees by unscrupulous firms. Vulnerability, internet and spectrum capacity as well as security issues need attention.
While FINTECH offers so many opportunities for reforming and democratizing finance, the race is on to own and control these disruptive firms and their profits. Steering FINTECH firms toward globally inclusive, sustainable development goals as in the UN’s SDGs must now be built in. Ethical standards are key in optimal systemic design. How best to measure their social and environmental impacts, performance metrics and accounting, and monitor prudential architecture at global and national levels? How can we help design FINTECH for inclusive sustainable finance and markets?
NFV, SDN, and cloud combined provide the infrastructure and flexibility needed for dynamic, elastic, reliable services. However, in order to fully realize their potential, they need to be accompanied by an ingenious, agile architecture. The greatest industry pain point is not a lack of network and IT technologies that would enable dynamic, elastic, on-demand services, but the fact that end-to-end orchestration and management of these services cannot be supported by the existing static OSSs, which are too slow and cumbersome.
This webinar from Intel and Amartus presents an innovative and dynamic approach to End-To-End Service Management & Orchestration, optimized for rapid introduction and full life cycle automation of any type of service across all domains & technologies, including Cloud, NFVs, SDNs, and traditional WAN networks. At its core lies the dynamically programmable architecture, which makes it fully customizable and extensible 'on-the-fly', and allows it to integrate with the existing infrastructure. The solution eliminates the primary problems of current OSSs – long development cycles, manual processes and costly integration, and leverages and combines both traditional WAN and new network virtualization and cloud technologies to deliver full end-to-end service orchestration and management.
The Smith chart, invented by Phillip H. Smith (1905–1987), is a graphical designed for electrical and electronics engineers specializing in radio frequency (RF) engineering to assist in solving problems with transmission lines and matching circuits. An article appeared in the January, 1939 issue of Electronics that changed forever the way radio engineers think about transmission lines. Phil Smith devised an extraordinarily clever circular chart that revealed graphically the complex impedance anywhere along a line.
This webinar is designed to introduce young RF engineers who may never have heard of the Smith chart to its immense power. We all use it unknowingly every day when because it is built in to so many systems that we do not even know it is there.
The chart is simply the unit circle of the complex plane representing the generalized reflection coefficient. The contours representing constant real and imaginary line impedances are overlaid . Thus, the chart can be used to directly determine the normalized line impedance at any position of the transmission line as well as the reflection coefficient. The chart is also a unit’s converter. No mathematics are needed because all quantities are simply determined graphically. So ingenious was his invention that it has been the standard of the industry - for nearly sixty years.
I am going to show you just how simple it is to design a balun to match a transmission line to an antenna.
PLEASE NOTE: Please be sure to leave your correct email address when registering as you will be sent a copy of The Smith Chart for this exercise. You will also need a pencil, 12" ruler and compass/divider.
I hope you enjoy the exercise.
