What is open source software?

The term open source refers to something people can modify and share because its design is publicly accessible.

The term originated in the context of software development to designate a specific approach to creating computer programs. Today, however, “open source” designates a broader set of values—what we call “the open source way.” Open source projects, products, or initiatives embrace and celebrate principles of open exchange, collaborative participation, rapid prototyping, transparency, meritocracy, and community-oriented development.

What is open source software?

Open source software is software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance.

“Source code” is the part of software that most computer users don’t ever see; it’s the code computer programmers can manipulate to change how a piece of software—a “program” or “application”—works. Programmers who have access to a computer program’s source code can improve that program by adding features to it or fixing parts that don’t always

History of Computers – A Brief Timeline of Their Evolution

The computer was born not for entertainment or email but out of a need to solve a serious number-crunching crisis. By 1880, the U.S. population had grown so large that it took more than seven years to tabulate the U.S. Census results. The government sought a faster way to get the job done, giving rise to punch-card based computers that took up entire rooms.

Today, we carry more computing power on our smartphones than was available in these early models. The following brief history of computing is a timeline of how computers evolved from their humble beginnings to the machines of today that surf the Internet, play games and stream multimedia in addition to crunching numbers.

1801: In France, Joseph Marie Jacquard invents a loom that uses punched wooden cards to automatically weave fabric designs. Early computers would use similar punch cards.

1822: English mathematician Charles Babbage conceives

Tech of the future: technology predictions for our world in 2050

When we think about 2050 it seems like it is ages from now and we imagine a completely different world, but in reality, it is just 30 years from now and we can already know what will be possible to have by that time. We have a lot of environmental, social problems and let’s see how technology may solve them by 2050. Today’s article is about tech of the future!

Modern Technology Advantages And Disadvantages –

Modern technology is simply an advancement of old technology. The impact of technology in modern life is unmeasurable, we use technology in different ways and sometimes the way we implement various technologies do more damage than good. What we call modern technology is technically not so new in most cases. For example, mobile phone technology has evolved from what it was in the year 2000 and continued to do so today; nowadays we use smartphones which is merely an advanced version of an older mobile phone.

We use technology on a daily basis to accomplish specific tasks or interests. Modern technology or evolved technology at times may replace previously used technology due to its increased benefits or newfound popularity. Take for example transportation technology; at one time steam-powered trains were widely used, now they have been replaced by electric powered trains which move significantly faster, allowing for more efficient use

Rust Programming Language

<p> Rust Programming Language</p> <p> </p>

A language empowering everyone
to build reliable and efficient software.

Why Rust?

Performance

Rust is blazingly fast and memory-efficient: with no runtime or
garbage collector, it can power performance-critical services, run on
embedded devices, and easily integrate with other languages.

Reliability

Rust’s rich type system and ownership model guarantee memory-safety
and thread-safety — enabling you to eliminate many classes of
bugs at compile-time.

Productivity

Rust has great documentation, a friendly compiler with useful error
messages, and top-notch tooling — an integrated package manager
and build tool, smart multi-editor support with auto-completion and
type inspections, an auto-formatter, and more.

Build it in Rust

In 2018, the Rust community decided to improve programming experience
for a few distinct domains (see the 2018
roadmap
). For these, you can find many

Top 12 Examples, How Technology Has Changed Our Lives

Technology has changed our lives by increasing the speed of time. We were human. We invented and developed the technologies to change our life to its best. Now that technology is changing our lives every second. Robots are our new human model and in the end, only robots control this world. Technology is now trying to go inside our body it’s almost there and the target is human blood and emotions. So, far! Technology is successful in that.

In business, the use of Artificial Intelligence, cloud computing, machine learning, predictive analytics, and business intelligence tools, applications are now creating new methods to conduct, operate and manage the business.

The rise of cloud computing, cloud storage,  Artificial intelligence, and Machine learning is the example, that we will be soon on the node that connects our body and capture the data of human activities in real-time. The invention and development of Technology

Computer Programmer – Career Rankings, Salary, Reviews and Advice

Computer programmers write the code that allows software programs to run. So just like a boss tells an employee what to do, a programmer tells a computer what to do. Basically, they write directions in C++ and Python or another language, and the computer then follows the programmer’s detailed instructions. In many cases, a programmer’s work will start after a software developer or engineer passes off design specifications for a particular program. The programmer’s job entails refining the ideas and solving the problems that arise while converting the program into code. Programmers can also rewrite, debug, maintain and test (and retest and retest) software and programs that instruct the computer to accomplish certain tasks, such as storing or retrieving data, so the computer can perform better and more efficiently.

Computer programming is an exciting industry that’s still in its infancy, according to Jeff Lyons, founder and president of the National
