The DevOps imperative: keep up or get lost

  • Forbes
  • this week

When I started in the software industry more than 30 years ago, we were still writing code in low-level programming languages and handing projects off to other teams without even knowing if they worked. The process was time-consuming and prone to errors - a lot like moving at the speed of a horse and cart compared to a car.

India's contact tracing app is going open source

  • TechCrunch
  • 1 week ago
  • India said it will publicly release the source code of its contact-tracing app, Aarogya Setu, to the relief of privacy and security experts who have been advocating for this ever since the app launched in early April.
  • The source code of Aarogya Setu’s Android app was published on GitHub Tuesday, and code of iOS and KaiOS apps would be released in a “few weeks.”
  • Nearly 98% of the app’s users are on the Android platform. The government will also offer cash prizes of up to $1,325 to security experts for identifying and reporting bugs and vulnerabilities.
  • Several privacy and security advocates, as well as India’s opposition party, had urged the government to release the code of the app for public auditing after some alleged lapses in the app were found — which New Delhi dismissed as app features at the time.

Remember the MOOCs? After near-death, they're booming

  • Nytimes
  • 1 week ago
  • Coursera, Udacity and edX sprang up nearly a decade ago as high-profile university experiments known as MOOCs, for massive open online courses. They were portrayed as tech-fueled insurgents destined to disrupt the antiquated ways of traditional higher education.
  • Before the pandemic hit, Coursera projected growth of 30 percent this year, to more than $200 million. That forecast looks decidedly outdated, given the surge in the last two months, but how long the trend lasts is uncertain.
  • The Covid-19 effect on online learning could broaden the range of popular subjects, education experts say. But so far, training for the tech economy is where the digital-learning money lies. With more of work and everyday life moving online — some of it permanently — that will probably not change.
