Weekly Tech Roundup for February 14th, 2020

“If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.”
Lyndon B. Johnson

“The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.”
Bill Gates

Though man can be extraordinary, there are so much upgrades in every area of Tech to make life better for Man;this is because we live technology. Here are what we’ve got for you from our daily knowledge development sessions.

Tech Snippets

Coronavirus explained

Human-to-human transmission has been confirmed outside China, including in the US, and authorities around the world have limited travel and enforced quarantines to guard against the spread. 15th US case confirmed after MWC cancelled

App Building

It will take some patience, but you don’t need a computer Science degree. Get out a sheet of paper and translate your idea into something more tangible. Scribble down a list of features and what you think the app may look like.

Cocaine ft Fingerprint 

A single fingerprint can distinguish whether someone has recently touched cocaine or actually ingested it. This test can be completed in less than 2 minutes, far quicker than blood tests, and could be used for forensic investigations or drug testing.

Netflix dominates viewing

Netflix ain’t backing down. They are getting better and bigger.  And we’re not just watching it on our phones and tablets: That dominance translates to the biggest screen in US homes too, according to a new study Tuesday from TV-measurement giant Nielsen.

Linus Upgrade

The latest Windows is based on Linux. The world is changing … who would have thought this would happen 20 years ago? There’s no license or activation key needed — you own the software — and Microsoft doesn’t snoop on you either!

Tech Predictions…. and beyond

With today’s pace of change, it’s getting harder to predict the state of technology five to 10 years in the future – not to mention how businesses will adapt to keep up. But with 2020 on the horizon, IT leaders are making big……..

Toast to the future 

SpaceX is building the Starship (formerly known as the BFR), a fully reusable vehicle designed to take humans and supplies to Mars.Musk earlier floated the idea that making Mars warmer would be crucial for making it habitable for humans and one way of doing it would be launching thermonuclear weapons in order to create tiny “suns” over the regions.

Habits of Programmers

Software engineers spend a lot of time gaining skills for interviews by practising leet code problems and perfecting resumes. Once they finally get that job at a startup, Google, Amazon, or another corporation, they might find the skills they used to get the job don’t match the ones they need in their everyday work.

Reasons not use TypeScript

Everyone loves TypeScript. It “solves” many problems JS has, it is a “superset” of JS, it will make your code error-prone and pleasant to read. There are a lot of good reasons to use TypeScript, but I am going to give you 7 really good reasons not to.

Apps Takes less Space

You ever had a smart phone with not enough internal memory space so you find yourself uninstalling apps to download new ones? I know that feeling…it hurts right? Well Great news!.- E.N

The Dining Philosophers Problem

Imagine that you’re in charge of the eating arrangements of five sober philosophers sitting in a circle. On each side of them is a chopstick, which adds up to five chopsticks in total.

I don’t mean to be Racist but NON TECHIES should read this..preferably with another tab set to Google.

As disinformation spreads at speed and scale, Google has released a tool to spot fake and doctored images. Jigsaw, known as Google Ideas when it was founded, said it was testing the tool, called Assembler, with more than a dozen news and fact-checking organisations around the world.

Knowledge Development Sessions

Few of our team members spoke about some interesting topics this week and it was explicit and awesome. MR. Emeka-Anthony talked about Buzzwords (Bringing Tech terms to the layman) while Mr. Onyekachi spoke about Introduction to Vue.js.
