The Digital Library : 2010 LAB Meeting

ACM organized the first meeting of its Library Advisory Board for 2010.

In an effort to learn more about issues impacting the global institutional library community, ACM held the first in a series of several meetings with prominent librarians from around the world. The goal of this first meeting was to seek advice on a range of economic, strategic, and technical issues related to institutional libraries and the ACM Digital Library.

The following is a list of librarians from the Americas that participated in the first meeting, which was held at ACM Headquarters in New York City on March 25-26, 2010:

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.

The DevOps Phenomenon

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment of RfP is by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald, and Helmut Krcmar. Titled “The DevOps Phenomenon,” this RfP gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming the early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between their software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving a higher level of stability.
