Pluralsight, the enterprise technology learning platform, announced the launch of the Pluralsight Technology Index that ranks the demand for skills in certain technologies. Here we offer an introduction in the methodology behind the new index and take a look at some interesting results.
Overledger aims to open blockchain’s “borders” and facilitate development of multi-chain applications
Enabling cross-chain communications is just like opening borders to allow international trade. Overledger ensures that companies and developers have the flexibility to easily migrate to another technology when required. We talked with Paolo Tasca about the first blockchain operating system that facilitates the development of multi-chain applications and the value it brings to the blockchain technology.
The 2018 IoT Developer Survey is out and offers interesting insights into the future of IoT solutions and trends. Here we compare the 2017 and 2018 survey results and analyze any significant changes, including the most suitable programming languages and new technologies (*cough* blockchain *cough*).
Technical barriers, security concerns, legal complexity and monetization challenges still hamper developers from getting their fair share of the growing API economy. A new blockchain protocol from startup AIKON hopes to open new economic opportunities for developers to more easily go to market, collaborate and get paid.
Blockchain has shown an astonishing growth trajectory in the past few years. In this interview, we talked to JAX Finance speaker Conor Svensson about the basics behind this new technology and how it can be used by everyone.
Achain wants people with coding skills to learn more about blockchain, hence its open-source nature. We talked with Eric Wang, Partner for Achain about their work and what they are doing to cultivate blockchain talent.
What’s the buzz about blockchain? We talked to Eoin Woods, a JAX Finance speaker, about blockchain before his upcoming sessions in London this April. He explains how this technology could help with finance, smart contracts, cybersecurity, and more!
Hold on!!! How does blockchain come into play when we’re talking about recruitment and hiring processes? Since blockchain is changing the way businesses operate, who says it cannot have a deep correlation with the HR process? In this article, Ankit Patel explains why blockchain can become an asset to the HR department.
“The currently unrivaled programming language for smart contracts is Solidity for the Ethereum blockchain”
iOlite Foundation recently introduced a smart human-machine translator to convert code back and forth between blockchain virtual machine code and various interfaces. In short, it’s now easier to create smart contracts on the blockchain; plus, you don’t need to learn a specific programming language. We talked with Alfred Shaffir, co-founder at iOlite Foundation about all this and more.
Performance measurement is very important and blockchain implementations are no exception. Although performance is on everyone’s minds, there’s not a commonly accepted blockchain benchmarking tool. This is where Hyperledger Caliper comes into play. We talked with Stephen McNamara, head of blockchain R&D strategy at Huawei and lead maintainer on the Hyperledger Caliper project about this tool and why blockchain users should give it a try.
These days, blockchain is on everyone’s lips. Many software developers from all sorts of fields are now trying to tap into the blockchain market. We talked with Eugene Kyselev, Blockchain Software Developer at Mobilunity, about his first steps into blockchain development and more.
Like every new technology, blockchain creates both opportunities and challenges. Let’s forget about the challenges for a moment and focus on the opportunities and all the industries that have been —or will be— touched by this technology. In this article, Matt Davida presents the top five industries that will be transformed by blockchain.
Blockchain has the potential to go mainstream. Jason Goldberg, CEO and founder of Simple Token tells us how this can be achieved. He also talks about his personal project, which aims to drastically simplify the utilization of blockchain technology. In short, Simple Token‘s goal is to fundamentally change the way companies use (and interact with) blockchain.
