In January 2020, the UK recorded its first case of COVID-19. The world was facing the unknown, and the only apparent way to contain the virus was for every nation across the planet to shut down. As governments across the globe planned for the unknown, organizations rapidly began seeking ways to support efforts to save lives and restart the economies of these countries. One such endeavor was the vital role technology could play in contact tracing.

Hi, Spring fans! 2020, eh? It's easy to complain, and goodness knows I certainly do my fair share, but - as my dad always said, "any day on this side of the dirt is a good day," and I try to remember that. There's a lot to be enthusiastic about if you like. I always look. That's what this roundup is all about. It's a fount of the fun, fantastic, production-powered, and boundless beauty of all things Spring Boot.

Getting your Python code into production is the most rewarding thing you can do. It's where users meet your apps, and where you finally get recognition for the time, energy, and skill that you've poured into your code. But without the right platform, getting Python into production can be a real pain in the proverbial. Let Ben Wilcock (@benbravo73) show you how to do it in seconds using open-source tools.

Python apps go great with containers. Docker, Kubernetes, Cloudfoundry, Public Cloud, Private Cloud, they're all awesome places to run your containers. But getting your apps into containers is a tricky business, particularly if you have tens or hundreds of apps to manage, and maintain. Your containers have to be secure, reproducible, and easy to rebuild when vulnerabilities strike or upgrades are required.

Whatever you want to call it, “legacy” software is a problem. In one of our recent surveys, 76% of executives said they are too invested in legacy applications to change how they do software. It can seem hard, but fixing that blocker is possible. As with all things in software, there is no quick fix, it just takes discipline, work, and time. In this episode, Coté talks with VMware Tanzu’s Rohit Kelapure who’s been working in application modernization for years. He goes over the initial portfolio analysis and thinking that the Pivotal Labs application modernization teams walk customers through.

Why You Need Application Modernization Most developers work on existing applications (apps): products and services that have been built, maintained, and updated over long periods of time. Normally, these apps exist as a web of tightly coupled, sparsely documented systems.

It's common in talks about digital transformation to make fun of waterfall as a software delivery methodology, but that's not entirely fair. Waterfall works great if your requirements are unchanged, you understand your users and, as a result, you don't need to be highly adaptable to users' changing needs.

Modernizing Software Development to Improve Your Business. Wrapping your mind around what exactly "digital transformation" is-and, more importantly, what to do about it-can be difficult. In my experience, "digital" is a catch-all phrase for "doing new things with IT." That could mean anything from moving desktop management to virtual desktops, using SaaS more, or selling insurance policies and industrial solvents on Instagram.
