It's not every day that you hear about a software project on public media,
but NPR and other public outlets are covering the troubled rollout of the
Healthcare.gov website nearly hourly. As a software professional, the
problems I was hearing about are common in a large software project, where
multiple pieces of the final product are built independently and then
integrated together at the end.
We are in the Post-Website Era. APIs Can Help.
The practical problem here is that it is too easy for disparate contractors
working on just their piece to even understand how the whole will ... (more)

However, some enterprises are unsure about cloud deployments because of
security concerns. In this post I will talk about how to enhance EC2 security
to allow APIs to be deployed in the AWS cloud in a way that delivers
enterprise-grade policy enforcement while fully realizing many of the
