Each Monday we take a step back and analyze what has happened in the previous week. Last week we presented the fifth release candidate of Angular 2, we shed some light on what Java Champion Jeff Genender thinks of Java EE 8 and we launched a microservices checklist. Our first interviewee was Viktor Farcic, Senior Consultant at CloudBees. But that’s not all.
Finding a remote job may sometimes feel like you are looking for a needle in a haystack.

Machine learning may sound futuristic, but its not. Speech recognition systems such as Cortana or Search in e-commerce systems have already showed us the benefits and challenges that go hand in hand with these systems.

The app economy has matured, but the number of apps that play in the big leagues continues to shrink. The rule “evolve or die” has been tailored to meet our digital expectations. Bots, however, don’t need to bend the rules to attract users. Here is why we have a bit mania on our hands.
The Bitcoin economy has gone from an early prototype stage to a second one characterized by gambling and black markets and finally to a third stage which steers away from “sin” and toward legitimate enterprises.
