UPDATE: The Devil Wears Prada & As I Lay Dying Unite for Marathon Metalcore Tour; North American Co-Headline Trek Kicks Off on February 22nd in Ventura, California; Multi-Artist Bill to Also Feature For Today, The Color Morale, and The Chariot; Tickets on

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Ferret Music recording group The Devil Wears Prada and Metal Blade Records' As I Lay Dying have announced details of their upcoming North American co-headline tour. The hugely anticipated trek gets underway February 22nd at Ventura, California's Majestic Ventura Theater Half House and then continues through early April (see itinerary below). Tickets for all dates will be on sale Friday, December 21st.

The Devil Wears Prada and As I Lay Dying will be accompanied on the epic tour by For Today (on all dates except March 6th-March 7th), The Color Morale (February 22nd - March 7th), and The Chariot (March 8th - April 4th). For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.tdwpband.com/tour and www.asilaydying.com/events.

The tour follows The Devil Wears Prada's 2011 breakthrough, "DEAD THRONE," which confirmed the band as one of the most potent and powerful in modern American metal. The album's latest video, "Mammoth," premiered to great acclaim earlier this year and is streaming now at the band's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/TDWP.

The Devil Wears Prada followed the release of "DEAD THRONE" with the hugely successful "Dead Throne Tour: North America," captured for posterity on the recently released CD/DVD, "DEAD&ALIVE." The collection includes performances of songs spanning TDWP's career, including such fan favorites as "Danger: Wildman," "Born To Lose," "Kansas," "Assistant To The Regional Manager," and "Outnumbered." In addition, "DEAD&ALIVE" features an array of behind-the-scenes footage shot and edited by the band's own Jeremy DePoyster.

Long hailed as a genuinely electrifying live act, The Devil Wears Prada have also proven indefatigable road warriors. In addition to countless headline dates and festival sets, recent highlights include spending summer 2012 alongside Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and the one and only Motörhead as one of the main stage headliners on the all-star Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

As I Lay Dying preceded the release of their 6th full-length studio album, "AWAKENED," with a highly successful run on 2012's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival where the band rotated between the side and main stages. Just before "AWAKENED" dropped via Metal Blade Records on September 25th, the band released their first production video for the album for the track "A Greater Foundation." Fans instantly took to the Internet to express their love of the new song -- AND to discuss the relevance of the lyrics. Check out the video and comments HERE.

The five-piece San Diego, Calif. based metal act, As I Lay Dying, recently concluded their run on the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour where they toured alongside Asking Alexandria, Memphis May Fire, and Attila, including a stop at the hugely successful California Metal Fest where the band electrified the stage and decimated metal fans with their powerful and blistering live set that the band is known for. "AWAKENED," which Rick Florino from Artist Direct called "...their best album yet," noting "it's a high water mark for modern metal, and it's going to wake up the entire genre" giving the release 5 out of 5 stars, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #11, selling over 28,000 copies in its first week in the US alone.

For their latest release, "AWAKENED," As I Lay Dying -- NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass) -- holed up in the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO with renowned rock producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents) and mixer Colin Richardson. The group's last LP, 2010s "THE POWERLESS RISE," debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #10, at #2 on Billboard's Independent Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard's Hard Music Albums Chart.

@ThingsExpo Stories
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
SYS-CON Media announced that Splunk, a provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, has launched an ad campaign on Big Data Journal. Splunk software and cloud services enable organizations to search, monitor, analyze and visualize machine-generated big data coming from websites, applications, servers, networks, sensors and mobile devices.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
