Dyn, the worldwide leader in Internet Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), announced a contest that will send two New England-based startups to LAUNCH Festival, March 4-6 in San Francisco, CA.

Any New England-based startup with annual revenue under $5 million can participate by creating a 3-to-5 minute video telling their story and explaining why they should go to LAUNCH. Submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 10th via either Twitter (#DynLaunch and @DynInc).

Social sharing is just one of the key scoring components for the esteemed panel of judges that includes Dyn’s Director of Email Product, Mike Veilleux (founder of startup GearFreedom), Jamie Coughlin, CEO of the abi Innovation Hub and Aaron O’Hearn, CEO and co-founder of the Boston Startup School.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
