The May 2016 digital issue of BZ Media’s SD Times is now available for your reading pleasure. Our cover story this month brings things developers should care about into clear focus. The job of creating software that lifts the business involves so much more than writing code. Online editor Christina Mulligan describes those other things that developers should care about.

We know you’ll enjoy this month’s other news articles, features and analysis. 

  • Developer Evangelism: It’s not about product promotion; it’s about helping developers understand the nitty-gritty of software they’ve been tasked to use. And evangelists have to be more than marketers, Social Media editor Madison Moore reports—they have to have the “street cred” to show developers they’re speaking their language. An interesting look at a growing area.

  • Building on Jenkins: The growth of Jenkins and its role in enabling Continuous Integration has helped spur the “DevOps” movement. Senior editor Alex Handy looks at Jenkins, including the recent 2.0 release, and examines just what Continuous Integration means to an agile cadence.

  • 3… 2… 1… IoT!: The Internet of Things is upon us, as connectivity moves past smartphones and tablets. In an IoT world, reports contributing editor Alexandra Weber Morales, it’s user experience, data integration and apps that will make the difference for businesses.

  • Buyer’s Guide—Software Configuration Management: Read this month’s article to learn what makes an SCM solution the right solution.
