Three Ways Software Development Companies Drive Digital Acceleration

By [email protected]_84

As VP of Operations at BairesDev, Damián is responsible for the entire customer relations life-cycle, safeguarding the company’s operations.  

The concept of digital acceleration (clearly a child of digital transformation) has grown exponentially in the past couple of weeks. Nothing unexpected, considering the huge demand for technology solutions that the novel coronavirus pandemic generated on a worldwide scale. Nonetheless, as most businesses moved digital transformation to the top of their to-do list, many have stumbled upon the harsh reality of technology adoption: It takes crucial know-how to do it right. 

Working with software development companies has become one clear long-term solution for this dilemma. The industry knowledge, expertise and technology capabilities they bring to the table often just can’t be matched by in-house operations. And, what’s more, outsourcing IT services has proven to be a faster and more cost-effective way of developing high-quality products, even in industries as

Apple is on a brand new round of developer betas, with the third batch available to download for iOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, watchOS 7.1, and tvOS 14.2.

The newest builds can be downloaded via the Apple Developer Center for those enrolled into the test program, or via an over-the-air update on devices running the beta software. Public betas typically arrive within a few days of the developer versions, via the Apple Beta Software Program website.

The latest batch of betas replace the second round, issued on September 29, and the first on September 17, one day after Apple released the milestone versions of each operating system.

Software Engineering Is Shaping The Jobs Of Tomorrow, Here’s How

By [email protected]_84

This article is sponsored by Billy Blue College of Design at Torrens University Australia.

Software engineering is an ever expanding frontier, full of constant innovation. Over the past decade, the industry’s growth has been skyrocketing globally. In Australia, the industry has grown by an annualised 11.4% since 2015.

Think about it – when was the last time you went an entire day without using some form of software? From listening to your favourite music on Spotify, to playing a round of Overwatch and tapping your debit card to pay for your morning coffee, these everyday tasks wouldn’t be possible without someone creating the software that makes them run.

In an article discussing the future of software engineering, Maryville University noted that, “As businesses of all kinds rely more heavily on computer-driven processes, it’s up to software engineers to design, maintain, and innovate these infrastructures.”

NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2 GB Developer Kit

By [email protected]_84

The NVIDIA Jetson Nano isn’t new. The 4 GB platform was launched last year at a price point of $129, which was then dropped to $99. Now the company has made some tweaks and released a 2 GB version that’s just $59. And although it’s in the price range of a Raspberry Pi, it offers the next level of oomph for AI newbies.

NVIDIA was able drop the price into Raspberry Pi territory by optimizing features like the number of USB ports (from four to three) and MIPI CSI-2 camera ports (from three to one). Of course, the biggest of these optimizations is apparent in the name (the reduction in LPDDR4 memory from 4 GB to 2 GB), but none of that restricts most developers in the practical engineering sense. You can run deep neural networks (DNNs), recurrent neural networks (RNNs), long short-term memory (LSTM) networks, and other neural networks,
