Beyond Bitcoin: How Enterprises Can Integrate Blockchain into Business By Kristy Blackmon In 2016, blockchain technology came close to hitting its peak on Gartner's annual Hype Cycle, signaling an imminent shift from an emerging, theoretical technology to widespread adoption. Like cloud, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) before it, blockchain is the tech industry's latest Next Big Thing. Analysts and industry experts say it holds immense potential for organizations, but many business leaders don't yet see a practical application for their operations. While a lot of people know blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, what about enterprise applications in other industries? What exactly is blockchain? The code that makes up blockchain is incredibly complex, and only a few thousand people understand it. On a high level... (more)

A Short History of Programming - Part 3 | @DevOpsSummit #AI #ML #DevOps #FinTech #Blockchain

Code Compiled: A Short History of Programming - Part 3 By Omed Habib Look at how far we’ve come. Just seven decades ago, the word “computer” referred to someone in an office with a pile of charts and a slide rule. Then ENIAC, the first electronic computer, appeared. It was followed quickly by the Commodore 64 personal computer and later, the iPhone. Today, the Sunway TaihuLight crunches data by combining 10,649,600 cores and performing 93 quadrillion floating point operations every second. Where will we be in another seven decades? In part one of this series, we covered how the evolution of hardware shaped the development of programming languages. We then followed up in part two with the impact of the software created by those languages. In this final blog in the series, we’ll look at how programming has taken the leap beyond computers into devices, with an emphasis... (more)

It's the Multi-touch SDK's Stupid!

I remember when Clinton (the Husband) was running for president against Bush (the Father) back in 1992. The slogan for the Clinton campaign was, "It's the Economy Stupid!". The point was that while Bush Sr. was doing well on foreign policy he was disconnected from the realities of the US population which was in the midst of a recession. True or not the slogan stuck and variations of it have been used ever since. While I'm very excited to see so many multi-touch and touch mobile devices (e.g. iPhone, Palm Pre, HTC Touch Pro) and multi-touch desktops (MacBook Pro, HP TouchSmart TX2, Dell Latitude XT2), tables (Microsoft Surface, Ideum MT2, SMART Table, GestureTek Illuminate, IntuiFace 2G, Perceptive Pixel, Multitouch Cell, iTable, Teliris, CUBIT), as well as operating systems (Windows 7, Mac Snow leapard) I'm a bit discouraged by the lack of SDKs available.

Mobilizing Enterprise Data to Apple's iOS devices

During the second half of 2010 I was lucky enough to have been given access to an internal engineering build of the Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) that supported iOS devices in addition to Blackberry and Windows Mobile. Check out SUP here SUP is a Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP), which in my opinion and also of folks like Gartner, is the only way forward in multiple application mobilization and multiple device support. SUP abstracts the data access and Business Logic into Mobile Business Objects (MBO's) that take care of accessing, updating and deleting back end data. That data could be from files, corporate RDMS and other 3rd party systems such as SAP. At that time I already had been using SUP for over a year and had experience of building MBO's and using SUP's fantastic Device Application Designer (DAD) to build apps for Blackberry in a very RAD point...

3G iPhone Set to Make Significant Impact on Mobile TV Market, Says Analysys Mason

With the imminent launch of its 3G iPhone, Apple has a window of opportunity to have a significant impact on the mobile TV market, according to the latest report from Analysys Mason, the premier advisers on telecoms, IT and digital media (www.analysysmason.com). There is considerable speculation about what next to expect from Apple’s iPhone ahead of CEO Steve Jobs' keynote at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco on Monday. “The iPhone could become the mobile video delivery device of choice for many consumers, by providing a compelling mobile TV and video proposition before mobile broadcasting networks, such as DVB-H become widely available”, says Mark Heath, co-author of the new Analysys Mason report iPhone Shows the Way for Mobile TV. Many operators are offering mobile TV services, using 3G streaming, but these are c... (more)

The Bedrock of the Software World: C++ Programming Language

C++ is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. It’s very fast and used for many high-profile projects, including Google Chrome and Microsoft Office. C++ is a mid-level language that communicates close to the hardware layer while still being easier to program than low-level assembly languages. It offers a unique blend of ease of coding and high-speed hardware control. Let’s take a closer look at C++, how it originated, who uses it, and its advantages over other languages. The Origins and History of C++ In 1972, Dennis Ritchie of Bell Labs created a language for Unix called C. By the late 1970s, C had become popular for developing operating systems. A number of variations on the original language were developed. In the late 1980s, ANSI Standard C was created. In 1979, Denmark’s Bjarne Stroustrup modified C by adding classes. He made further refinem... (more)
