The legacy networks that are typically in use by organizations today have an infrastructure that is typically a mix of multiple vendor solutions, platforms, and protocol solutions. This makes the ultimate goal of creating an integrated network ecosystem a difficult if not impossible process for many organizations. The arrival of Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an approach to building networks using open protocols, such as OpenFlow, that allow globally aware software control to be applied at the edges of the network in order to access network switches and routers that typically would use closed and proprietary firmware. What you´ll find inside: The importance of SDNHow telecom service providers view SDNThe developer and the networkExamples of networked applications that can only be offered in an SDN networkGoogle and SDNSDN is not a revolutionary new technology. Instead, it is better to think of this as being a new way of organizing computer network functionality. SDN allows the network to be virtualized. That´s where the real power of SDN comes from, and that´s what we´ll be exploring in this book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Anderson.

It´s really true, isn´t it? They say it´s really easy to get a job when you´re already working and don´t need one! When you are unemployed, however, and trying to live on meager unemployment checks it can get scary really fast! The checks won´t cover a house payment or rent, let alone utilities and minor details like food for your kids! What´s a person supposed to do? What happened? Job hunting wasn´t always the stressful task it is today. A guy like your dad or your grandfather worked the same job clear up to retirement. After putting in his 20, 30 or 40 years his boss would give him a gold watch and a pension for his faithful years of service. Sadly, that is no longer the case. Every day we see more and more jobs being eroded by more technology or actually re-assigning your position to someone halfway across the world! Instead of planning on putting in your time then enjoying the fruits of your labor, you are lucky if the job lasts more than a year or so before you get the pink slip that tells you that the company is ´´re-aligning their resources´´ and your position is being eliminated! The problem is that this will hit most people when they least expect it and this process repeats itself every single day across the country. So, what can you do about it? One of the first things you should do is become ´´pro-active´´ instead of ´´reactive.´´ The decision to eliminate your job or lay you off wasn´t made in a day. It´s the result of a process. You just aren´t told about it until it´s too late, leaving you in a bind. We aren´t saying that you should not be loyal to your employer, just never have all your eggs in one basket. Learn how the job hunting process works today and always have a backup plan in place. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Ackley.

On June 27, 2013, Kenny and Teddy Lee were broke and jobless. After four years working together on smaller videogames - some written over the course of a week, others in a few hours - the two brothers had pooled their resources to create Rogue Legacy, a game exponentially larger in scope than any they had created before. If Rogue Legacy failed, it would also be their last. Seven days and 100,000 sales later, they were back in the black. Their recipe for success: 18 months, countless arguments, a surprisingly popular game about holding one´s bowels, and unwavering trust. Based on interviews with the development team, Red to Black: The Making of Rogue Legacy tells the story of two brothers who poured blood, sweat, tears, and exactly $14,878 into the game that would make or break their careers - and their bank accounts. 1.
