  • Tropo Sponsors Node.js PaaS and NodeFu

    first_imgklint finley Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Tags:#cloud#Cloud Providers center_img This week NodeFu announced another forthcoming Node.js platform-as-a-service offering powered by Amazon Web Services. But NodeFu isn’t a company – it’s an open source project sponsored by Tropo (one of our Cloud Startups to Watch in 2011). “We plan to follow Heroku‘s business model consisting of free Node.js hosting for average-size sites/applications. Additional CPU resources, worker processes, and add-ons will be available for an affordable fee,” says founder Chris Matthieu.“Since NodeFu is 100% open source and licensed under Apache 2, developers will be able to standup their own NodeFu private clusters on-premise or on their own EC2 accounts or even RackSpace, GoGrid and others,” says Matthieu. NodeFu’s source code can be found on Github. Matthieu invites developers to contribute to the code.Matthieu, an employee of Tropo’s parent company Voxeo and created NodeFu during his spare time. Although NodeFu is associated with Voxeo, its not using Voxeo’s infrastructure for hosting. “Because Tropo is a highly event-driven communications platform, we hope to leverage NodeFu’s hosting services in the near future too,” Matthieu says. Tropo’s blog has some details on getting started with NodeFu to build voice and SMS applications. The “About Us” section of NodeFu’s web site states that the project was started because other Node.js hosting services were not sending out coupon invitations. However, NodeFu was only planning to send 50 access coupons per week. Matthieu told us the site has received over 8,000 requests for access coupons. He says he was’t expecting this level of interest so he and his team are deciding how to handle the growing number of requests.NodeFu’s CouchDB instance on CouchOne has also been hacked, slowing down the project’s ability to move forward. Matthieu says they are working with CouchOne to restore the database.Update:CouchOne maintains no hacking was involved:We’d like to point out that while we regret the situation, there was no “hacking” involved in this incident. The NodeFu developers, under stress, simply accidentally committed their administrator password to a popular social source code management site — the culprits took it from there. See our blog post for more details: http://blog.couchone.com/post/2832322428/hosting-bulletinWe’d like to emphasize that this wasn’t caused by a security vulnerability in Apache CouchDB or our hosting infrastructure. We are working with the NodeFu developers to get their data restored.The launch didn’t come without a mini-controversy. NodeFu is using the open source proxy node-http-proxy, which was created by its rival ninja themed Node.js PaaS Nodejitsu. At Mashable, node-http-proxy co-creator and Nodejitsu co-founder Marak Squires commented:It should be noted the majority of the open-source software NodeFu is using for their platform is actually software released by Nodejitsu ( another node.js platform as a service ), found here: http://github.com/nodejitsuWe’ve been supporting and releasing the open-source software being used behind NodeFu for several months now. We’ve also been using a ninja themed brand since day one. We were the first to have a ninja themed node.js hosting service and we were the first to use a ninja icon to represent our service.However, Nodejitsu co-founder and node-http-proxy co-creator Charlie Robbins commented at Hacker News:My company Nodejitsu (http://nodejitsu.com) also provides a node.js Cloud Platform-as-a-Service. The invites are coming soon I promise >.<I’m the author of forever and node-http-proxy and it’s good to see our production quality node.js software being used by other people 🙂Matthieu emphasizes that NodeFu is not a company and that anyone is free to use its own open source code. (And we won’t go into the fact that NodeFu is mixing a reference to Chinese martial arts with references to Japanese martial arts.)Other Node.js hosts include Node.js sponsor company Joyent and nodeJScloud.

  • Low Pay Limits Player Experience in National Womens Soccer League

    The second season of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) starts April 12, which will be about the time people ask, “There’s a professional women’s soccer league?” Yes, there is: It’s the third attempt since 1999 at professionalizing women’s soccer in the U.S. The previous two leagues both folded after only three seasons, so to say that Year 2 is crucial for the NWSL’s survival would be an understatement.This season also carries the added pressure of needing to be really competitive in the run-up to summer 2015’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. If the U.S. national team hopes to have the best shot at the World Cup, it needs to be playing at the highest level. That means the rest of the players in the league (those who won’t be going to the World Cup) need to be very good. But it isn’t easy to entice international talent (or even domestic talent) with the lurking ghost of two failed leagues and a salary that typically ranges from $6,000 to $30,000 (with most players seeing the lower end of that range).Herein lies the biggest problem for the NWSL: To keep the league afloat, it is paying preposterously low salaries. And who can afford to play professional soccer for $6,000 per year? Mostly women in college or only a few years out, as well as those with minimal national-team-level experience. And though this modest budget has helped the league’s bottom line, it has made it more difficult to attract high-level players — well, high-level players who are not members of the U.S. national team.When the NWSL was organized, U.S. Soccer, the sport’s governing body, agreed to subsidize the salaries of U.S. national team players — typically the best and most expensive players in the league. Last year, the Canadian and Mexican federations agreed to do the same, so the league evenly allocated all national team players among the eight teams. (A ninth team, the Houston Dash, was added this year, so many players were reallocated.)With a roster squad of 20 — assuming each team has the maximum three “free” U.S. national team players and three “free” Canadian or Mexican national team players — this leaves 14 roster spots to be filled. Last year’s salary cap was $200,000, so, divided evenly, pay would be less than $15,000 per player for the entire season.On Wednesday, each team had to cut its roster to 25 players, with five more cuts to come before the season begins. We wanted to look at the distribution of talent in this season’s player pool to see who is trying to play professional women’s soccer. Below is a chart that illustrates the relative experience and age of the 228 players who remain (not all teams had released their roster cuts by Wednesday’s deadline):We counted one year out of college as finishing collegiate soccer in 2013, although technically these players are still in college (most are just about to graduate). For national team experience, we counted the number of consecutive years a player appeared in the full national team player pool. This data does not reflect international players who did not play college soccer and also probably over-represents younger players who are more likely to be released when the final rosters are cut to 20 in the coming weeks.Still, it’s interesting that the NWSL pool is dominated by players two years out college with zero years of national team experience — there are currently 42 of these women. The median number of years of national team experience is zero, which makes sense because the national team pool is very small — typically about 30 players per year. Almost half of the player pool is made up of women only one or two years out of college.This data doesn’t speak to the longevity of a player’s career, which varies wildly by individual. The data also doesn’t mean that a freshly graduated collegiate player is any worse or better than Christie Rampone, the league veteran with 17 years of national team experience. There are wunderkinds in every sport, but overall we think that more professional experience probably means more talented players.The main thing the data illustrates is that the NWSL is skewing young and inexperienced, which might have more to do with finances than soccer ability. For most players, and people in general, there are only so many years you can do the thing you love on a $15,000 annual salary before you have to move on. read more

That’s why we deserved the win.”He added: “I’m there to help the team get up the pitch. I have to hold the balls, and score goals. That’s my job and I tried to do everything possible.“For my goal, it was a mistake from them, and Mark kept the ball really well because first of all, I was offside.
