The Dark Side: How Hackers are  Manipulating Our World

The Dark Side: How Hackers are Manipulating Our World

To the average web developer, a hacker may seem simply like a nuisance, easily avoidable with the implementation of security standards and encryption methods. However, to many Americans nationwide, hackers are often defined as “super geniuses” which can “crack” into anything and terrorize our world. The main reason for this somewhat misguided interpretation of the hacking community is the fact that the media typically portrays these individuals as coffee-guzzling, cigarette-smoking rebels dressed in black, hiding in shadows, and wreaking havoc using techniques that are not only visually absurd but also completely inaccurate — think the new Fast and The Furious movie or the 1985 film Weird Science.

The rise of Agile Integration, Integration is not DEAD nor LAME!

I wanted to blog about this for a very long time, but because of work and being too lazy to turn on my laptop on the weekends, I now finally have a couple of hours to sit down and start blogging.

“Integration is DEAD.”

“No, no, let’s talk about microservice!”

“What is that again? Integration, you mean SOA? It’s lame…”.

Collaborating as a Team

Collaborating as a Team

One of the major issues facing Software Development Team is Collaboration. As such, a lot of software has been created to help improve collaboration between programmers. However, as some solutions are created, it seems to open doors to other issues. So, with a lot of software at our disposal, programmers begin to get distracted with too many applications for collaboration. The use of email has been efficient but recently a lot of organizations are beginning to avoid it as it has begun creating a new set of issues.

How to Get Developers to Adopt Your Product

How to Get Developers to Adopt Your Product

Recently, I participated in a focus group where developers were asked to discuss how they make technology adoption decisions. Even “the big guys” seem unsure of how to get developers to notice and adopt their products. So, in this post, I’m going to try to reduce our learning and adoption process down to some concrete steps. The truth is, we don’t just pick up tools, components, libraries, or languages just to complete a particular task or project. In truth, any technology we adopt has to help us do one or more of three important jobs. The more of these jobs your product can do, the more likely developers will pick it up and stick with it.

Open Source is Everywhere

“OPEN SOURCE”- it’s FREE! This is what comes first to mind when someone asks us about our knowledge of Open Source. It was the case with us until someone told us about what exactly Open Source is and its importance in the present IT sector.

Projects from the Open Source World

Red Hat Certified Engineer – what a big name. This certification made us feel confident that we can excel in the field of Open Source irrespective of what we are at present, which is either a student or an employee working in a multinational company. It was the end of our vacation of the third year and the start of another era called the final year. But this era would not be easy as that spent in the last three years, as there will be different obstacles moving forward.

The Shadow Man on Our campus

The Shadow Man on Our campus

Engineering is the platform where after the tenure of a four-year term we look back, feel proud about some of our own decisions, and regret others as well. Such as the following case at our college when first-time industry professionals met with one of the most experienced trainers of Red Hat, at our campus, spreading the word of Open Source.
