HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Fun topic: Why do we call it a Turkey!? #socbiz #cloud #thanksgiving

Why Do We Call It a Turkey?

Turkey—the bird itself—is native to North America. But the name turkey is a geographic pretzel. As you might suspect, the English term for the bird comes from a country called Turkey. But more precisely, the word stems from Turkish merchants who, in the 16th century, imported guinea fowls to Europe, where they were called Turkey-Hens.

When similar birds were found in the Americas, they were mistaken as Turkey-Hens. So the name Turkey stuck and is now used worldwide for the bird.

Going forward a New Guinness World Record – IBM is a proud partner of the @koding Global Virtual Hackathon, over $150K in prizes, December 12-13, koding.com #hackathon

Koding Inc. has announced its second annual global virtual hackathon, set for December 12-13. Sponsored by IBM, this year’s virtual event is expected to draw more than 100,000 participants worldwide, setting a new Guinness World Record and surpassing last year’s inaugural event, which set the record for the largest-ever virtual hackathon.

IBM’s sponsorship of the event is part of the company’s strategic relationship with Koding, a developer community and cloud-based developer environment that allows users to easily work, collaborate, write and run apps—all within a Web browser. Confirmed hackathon participants will receive an invitation for a free trial of IBM Bluemix, an implementation of IBM’s Open Cloud Architecture based on Cloud Foundry, an open source platform as a service.

Registration is now open, and teams of up to five developers from around the world can sign up for this year’s hackathon at https://koding.com/Hackathon. During the event, participants will have 48 hours to hack their way into $150,000 in cash prizes. This year’s themes include educational games, enterprise productivity and data visualizations.

Koding was inspired to tap the minds of developers all over the world for a second year after an overwhelmingly positive response to last year’s event. Koding’s 2014 hackathon had more than 60,000 participants from a total of 900 total cities, and more than 500 projects were completed and submitted within 48 hours.

IBM@JavaOne 2015: Meeting the needs of the modern enterprise with Java in the Cloud!

Java?   yes Java!
The Java™ platform has been critical for us here at IBM for almost two decades and continues to be as we move deeper into the era of cloud, mobile, and cognitive computing, all of which are key themes in this year’s JavaOne conference happening this week today through Thursday!
java
IBM embraced the Java programming language beginning 20 years ago. As Java grew into a large-scale enterprise platform, IBM was in lock-step, building its extensive middleware suite on this innovative and versatile technology to support not only a wide array of customers in disparate industries, but also powering its own development.
Java is critical to IBM, even moreso as we find ourselves at the beginning of a new era with cloud, mobile, and cognitive computing leading the way.
It’s no surprise, then, that IBM is again a Diamond sponsor at this year’s JavaOne conference, supporting and endorsing the platform that continues to shape its and others’ innovation in the enterprise.
Here’s an overview of some of  IBM’s activities during JavaOne 2015.
