Jump-start your hackathon efforts with IBM Bluemix DevOps Services
A hackathon is typically a brief, intense period of collaborative development generally around a particular cause or topic. The idea is to get something done quickly and, of course, for the thing you to do totally rock the judges. Given the short time period, it can be challenging to build in some basic features like Facebook authentication or sending emails or texts while still making significant progress on your main goal. The Hackathon Starter Project by Sahat Yalkabov, et. al., hosted at GitHub, provides a great collection of capabilities to use as the base for your hackathon efforts. IBM Bluemix DevOps Services provides a collaborative on-the-web development environment and continuous delivery pipeline while IBM Bluemix provides the cloud hosting you need to run it, making this a perfect pair for hackathon success. I explain how to stand up your own copy of Hackathon Starter from a fresh version of the source using Bluemix DevOps Services and automatically deploy it after every change to the Bluemix PaaS.

Achieving high performance for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) applications
This article provides a detailed analysis about the new Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) built-in functions provided by IBM XL compilers. It explores the code that the compilers generate to demonstrate the performance gained by using the built-in functions. This is critical for high-performance AES applications, especially when many of them cannot be parallelized due to the nature of operation modes, such as chaining mode [for example, cipher block chaining (CBC) and propagating cipher block chaining (PCBC)] or feedback mode [cipher feedback (CFB) and output feedback (OFB)]. If you are a software engineer who is interested in achieving high performance for applications on IBM POWER8 processors, this article is for you.

Complement business rule debugging in IBM Operational Decision Manager with a logging framework
Logging and tracing play an integral role in problem diagnosis and understanding the flow of many applications. Common logging methods such as adding print statements placed through the code are often used to trace the flow of an application or a component during development. However this method falls short on scalability and flexibility by making it difficult to dynamically and easily change and control the amount and destination of logged information. A logging framework, such as the logging APIs available in Java SE or Apache Log4J, provide feature rich, flexible logging mechanisms that aid with debugging and tracing. This tutorial explains how to use a Java Logging framework in IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) to assist with debugging and tracing business rule projects.

Using the SNMP GetBulk request for data retrieval
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) provides a system or network management application with the ability to gather information about network devices and to monitor them. To accomplish this, SNMP defines a set of operations for retrieving and setting data as well as monitoring for conditions being reported by the managed devices. One of these operations is GetBulk, which provides an application with the ability to easily retrieve a large amount of data with a single request. This can be particularly useful when retrieving information from the standard SNMP tables. This article describes how to use a new GetBulk API for retrieving data from a table and other new functions recently added to the SNMP support on IBM i.
