Eclipse Neon.2: quick demo of three improvements | eclipse howl. In December 2016 Neon.2 was released with only a few but nonetheless very helpful improvements. My Eclipse Neon.2: quick demo of 3 improvements shows three of these improvements: Opening a Java project that has not been created with Eclipse becomes a no-brainer with the new Java detector that is used by File > Open Projects from File System. Also the Arduino Downloads Manager of the Arduino C++ Tools shows how simple things can be: Just choose your Arduino board or compatible system and the libraries you want to use. Everything required, e. g. C++ compiler, will be downloaded and configured for you. There are also Eclipse IDE Git integration improvements, but EGit and JGit forgot to contribute their version 4.5 (I like auto-stage selected files on Commit…) and 4.6 to Neon.2. If you missed the last two releases, here are my quick demos of 10 Neon.1 and 22 Neon.0 improvements: Like this: Like Loading...

Can Testers Learn from the Challenge Based Learning Framework? - Welcome To SogetiLabs, the research and innovation community of Sogeti. My neighbour Margit is a teacher in a local school. A couple of days ago, we met in the front yard and chatted about getting started after the summer break, and she told me that she was getting introduced to the concept of challenge based learning. Curious as I am, I had to search for that on the web afterwards to find out more. As described on www.digitalpromise.org , Challenge Based Learning (CBL) provides an efficient and effective framework for learning while solving real-world challenges.

The framework is collaborative and hands-on, asking all participants (students, teachers, families, and community members) to identify big ideas, ask good questions, identify and solve challenges, gain deep subject area knowledge, develop 21st century skills, and share their experience with the world. The framework is divided into three stages: Engage: Identify the big idea and start generating a large variety of essential questions that reflect interest and needs of the community. Engage: Analysis. API powers THack China 2016 champion - Amadeus Corporate Blog. It’s exciting to see the energy and creativity the start-up community shows for innovation in travel. They were on full display at THack China 2016, which brought together the country’s top developers at Alibaba’s beautiful Hangzhou campus, to innovate for travel. For the third consecutive year, the Amadeus API was used to win the competition.

Team Re:World combined augmented reality, wearables, as well as motion and audio sensors to create a new generation interactive guide to significantly improve the traveller experience. The team’s creative, out-of-the-box thinking not only won them the THack competition, but also earned them the Amadeus Creativity Award that we established to celebrate outstanding creativity.

Re:World were one of the 11 teams out of 16 teams participating in THack China 2016 that used the Amadeus API to develop their creative demos. The positive feedback we got from the teams on the connectivity, simplicity and speed of our API was very rewarding. 6 Benefits and 9 Risks You Need to Know about Cloud Computing - Welcome To SogetiLabs, the research and innovation community of Sogeti. We know that cloud computing is “the new normal” just like virtualization was in the past. And we also know that the adoption of cloud computing by your organization can come with a series of benefits including: But once you ask yourself: what can possibly go wrong? You open your eyes to a “cloudy weather” where you must plan, identify, analyze, manage and control the risks associated with moving your data and operations to the cloud. To help you with the identification process, here is a list of risks that your organization can face once you start or continue the transition to the cloud: Privacy agreement and service level agreement: You must understand the responsibilities of your cloud provider, as well as your own obligations.

Remember we are talking about your data and business here and once you transition to the cloud you are still accountable and responsible for what happens with it. Les logiciels HPE sous bannière Micro Focus: un gage de stabilité pour les DSI. Quand Dell choisit le gigantisme – via le rachat du duo EMC-VMware pour 67 milliards de dollars -, HPE préfère la cure d’amaigrissement. Après avoir fusionné ses services avec CSC – opération qui concerne la moitié de ses salariés -, HPE réalise une opération similaire dans le logiciel. Cette fois, c’est vers le Britannique Micro Focus, qui a réalisé 835 millions de dollars de chiffre d’affaires en 2015, que se tourne le Californien pour opérer la scission et la fusion d’une bonne part de ses activités logicielles.

Après fusion, Micro Focus devrait s’approcher des 4,5 Md$ de chiffre d’affaires annuel. Le deal – valorisé 8,8 Md$, même si Micro Focus ne verse concrètement que 2,5 Md$ de cash à HPE – concerne de nombreuses activités logicielles rachetées par le groupe américain au fil des ans : Peregrine (2005, 425 M$), Mercury (2006, 4,5 Md$), Vertica (2011), Autonomy (2011, 11,7 Md$) ou encore ArcSight (2010, 1,5 Md$).

Micro Focus : une stratégie « qui se tient » A lire aussi : DevOps c'est bien, DevSecOps c'est beaucoup mieux. DevOps, qui est le mélange des équipes chargées du développement des applications (Dev) et de l'exploitation des systèmes (Ops pour « operations »), est un sujet à la mode. Le nouveau modèle est souvent employé conjointement avec les méthodes de développement Agiles et tire parti de l'évolutivité du Cloud computing ; le tout, bien sûr, dans le but de rendre les entreprises plus flexibles et compétitives.

D'après un expert, cependant, l'approche telle qu'elle est mise en œuvre aujourd'hui ne va pas assez loin. David Cearley, analyste chez Gartner Inc., estime en effet que les DSI doivent désormais revoir l'approche DevOps pour y inclure également la sécurité. Il parle de DevSecOps. « Le développement, la sécurité, l'exploitation des systèmes jouent un rôle de force dynamique pour créer des solutions », explique-t-il. D'après lui, investir dans des pare-feu et dans la défense périmétrique n'est pas une mauvaise idée en soi. Une suggestion ? Nice - France - Hacking Health. Index | TIOBE - The Software Quality Company. TIOBE Index for February 2017 February Headline: Educational language Scratch enters TIOBE index top 20 The Scratch programming language from MIT Media Lab has entered the TIOBE index top 20.

Scratch is a language to learn programming. It is especially used at schools and is now getting really popular. The Scratch repository at MIT labs contains 20 million different Scratch projects and more than half a million new users each month. The TIOBE Programming Community index is an indicator of the popularity of programming languages. The index can be used to check whether your programming skills are still up to date or to make a strategic decision about what programming language should be adopted when starting to build a new software system.
