Automated Prosper Investing with ProsperBot - Overview I started investing in peer to peer lending in 2014 through a site called Prosper.

Automated Prosper Investing with ProsperBot -

I thought peer to peer lending was a neat idea and could potentially earn lucrative returns. When I began, I chose each of my loan investments manually, but over time, I have automated this process by building a lending bot called ProsperBot that invests for me automatically. In this blog post, I’ll give a brief overview of peer to peer lending and walk through the process of building ProsperBot.

Moderate screen use 'boosts teen wellbeing' Image copyright Thinkstock A study of screen time and mental wellbeing among teenagers has suggested moderate use of devices may be beneficial in a connected world.

Moderate screen use 'boosts teen wellbeing'

The researchers collected self-reported data from 120,000 English 15-year-olds about their digital device habits. They found a "Goldilocks effect" where a few hours of device-use seemed to boost mental wellbeing. One developmental psychologist welcomed the paper but said there was still room for more study. "Moderate engagement in digital activities is not harmful," notes the paper, published today in the journal Psychological Science. Design and Implementation of an Intelligent Mobile Game.

Troy Hunt: The beginners guide to breaking website security with nothing more than a Pineapple

Stuff like posting creds over HTTPS isn’t enough, you have to load login forms over HTTPS as well and then you can’t send auth cookies over HTTP because they’ll get sniffed and sessions hijacked and so on and so forth. This is all pretty much security people rhetoric designed to instil fear but without a whole lot of practical basis, right? That’s an easy assumption to make because it’s hard to observe the risk of insufficient transport layer protection being exploited, at least compared to something like XSS or SQL injection. But it turns out that exploiting unprotected network traffic can actually be extremely simple, you just need to have the right gear. Say hello to my little friend: This, quite clearly, is a Pineapple. Library Solutions.

Next Thing’s CHIP could be the next big little thing: A $9 literally chip-sized BYOP (Bring Your Own Peripherals) computer that runs a variant of Debian Linux.

Meet CHIP, the $9 computer

The hardware design is Open Hardware, meaning you can study and learn how it works and modify the design, if you want to fabricate your own tiny computer. With nearly a month of backing left, it’s nearing $1 million in Kickstarter funding — far exceeding its target goal of $50,000. Although it is somewhat similar to the successful $35 Raspberry Pi, CHIP has just enough differences to make interesting beyond its ultra-low price. Such Android API levels, much confuse.

Sleepily – it was late, and he had work in the morning – Eriksson thought he’d try his luck decoding the message from "3301”.

The internet mystery that has the world baffled

After only a few minutes work he’d got somewhere: a reference to "Tiberius Claudius Caesar” and a line of meaningless letters. Joel deduced it might be an embedded "Caesar cipher” – an encryption technique named after Julius Caesar, who used it in private correspondence. It replaces characters by a letter a certain number of positions down the alphabet. As Claudius was the fourth emperor, it suggested "four” might be important – and lo, within minutes, Eriksson found another web address buried in the image’s code. Feeling satisfied, he clicked the link. Enormous Changes to Google Summer of Code in 2015. By Steve Burge The Google Summer of Code (GSOC) is a progam that has helped many, many open source projects. Google accepts applications from projects and provides up to $150,000 in stipends to help student developers contribute code.

Since it started in 2005, Google estimates that GSOC, has brought together over 8,500 successful student participants from 101 countries and over 8,300 mentors from over 109 countries worldwide to produce over 50 million lines of code. Last year, there was a 10% increase in the program to commemorate its 10th anniversary. This year, there was been far more significant decrease in the size of the program. Scrum (software development) Scrum is an iterative and incremental agile software development framework for managing product development.

It defines "a flexible, holistic product development strategy where a development team works as a unit to reach a common goal", challenges assumptions of the "traditional, sequential approach" to product development, and enables teams to self-organize by encouraging physical co-location or close online collaboration of all team members, as well as daily face-to-face communication among all team members and disciplines in the project. A key principle of Scrum is its recognition that during a project the customers can change their minds about what they want and need (often called "requirements churn"), and that unpredicted challenges cannot be easily addressed in a traditional predictive or planned manner.
