• Online Meetup: Best practices on securing Kubernetes system through CI/CD
    Sign up NOW: http://ibm.biz/SecuringContainer-CI-CD Curious about securing a container deployment to production? Wondering how to lock down your Kubernetes system services? Join IBM Developer and NeuVector’s online meetup on Tuesday, December 18th 9:30 AM PT. Learn about techniques to improve container architecture, design and deployment. Secure containerized applications and container orchestration tools through CI/CD. In this online meetup, you will learn how to: - lock down Kubernetes with proper RBACs - avoid running on the root/ a privileged user - scan images and verify signatures - detect and prevent Kubernetes system and container workload exploits - maintain continuous secured deployments with CI/CD What are you waiting for?

  • Jamming with a Quantum Computer - A Musical Journey Into Quantum Computing
    Who knew Quantum Computing could be so musical? Come learn about how a quantum computer can compose music and let your inner musician out at IBM Developer's jamming Lunch and Learn! What are you waiting for? Sign up NOW! BACKGROUND: Musical improvisation is the creative activity of composing music "in the moment" while performing it, often in a jam session with other musicians. Although composing and performing music is a creative process, the underlying musical style informs the probabilities of note and rhythmic choices that the musician makes. For example, when improvising in the style of twelve-bar blues, the notes played with the highest frequency of occurrence are typically the five that comprise the corresponding minor pentatonic scale. This idea of musical style being a complex system of probabilities fits perfectly with the probabilistic nature of quantum mechanics, which is a phenomenon leveraged by quantum computing. To implement this idea, James Weaver created an open source application named Quantum Music Composer that makes use of a quantum computer to improvise music in a very simplified version of 17th century counterpoint. AGENDA: In this session, James will give an introduction to quantum computing, cover a bit of music theory, and demonstrate how a quantum computer can compose music and participate in a musical jam session. He will then discuss the development and implementation of the Quantum Music Composer application on IBM quantum computers. To give the audience some hands-on experience with quantum computing, Joe Latone will then lead attendees that bring a computer through a quantum computing exercise. James and Joe look forward to meeting up and helping you along your quantum computing journey! Speaker Bio: James Weaver is a developer, author, and speaker with a passion for quantum computing. He is a Java Champion, and a JavaOne Rockstar. James has written books including Inside Java, Beginning J2EE, the Pro JavaFX series, and Java with Raspberry Pi. As an IBM Quantum Developer Advocate, James speaks internationally at quantum and classical computing conferences. He tweets as @JavaFXpert, and blogs at http://JavaFXpert.com and http://CulturedEar.com Joe Latone, Research Scientist, IBM Almaden Research Center Joe Latone is a research scientist at IBM’s Almaden Research Center based in San Francisco where he's led and managed teams working in a broad range of areas such as distributed systems, open source software, ag tech, deep learning, blockchain/Web 3.0, and now, quantum computing. http://linkedin.com/in/latone
