One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. – Elbert Hubbard
Someone once said, “If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner”. Check out these inspiring technology trend that might just inspire you to further develop your love for technology.
We also included some snippets from our daily knowledge development sessions, just to give you a little extra knowledge. After all, knowledge is never enough. Take your time and digest every one of them. The world is fast evolving and so should your mind.
Here is some competition in the payment space. Flutterwave / Rave is offering developers 0.1% of all their merchants transaction. Now that is big. I wonder if Paystack will offer 0.2%. This is a good incentive for the volumes
I stumbled on this post saying Bye Bye to Object Oriented Programming . Inheritance is the first pillar to fall . I found that very funny. For Junior developers out there that think OOP is the best thing since Ice Cream, this post will give you some food for thought …
Break up with your phone now. Stasticslly, you are very likely to be a phone addict. It is costing you a lot more than you have consciously counted.
If you are fond of using Facebook to interact with friends and acquaintances, you will be amazed at how this digital platform can help you establish your brand, build your network, and find the right audience.

The world’s fastest growing mobile company has long had a chip on its shoulder when it comes to Apple and Samsung. For too long, the company has had to go out of its way to remind the world that it’s capable of being every bit as innovative as those better established brands, a concept very much at the heart of the Mate X.
The device lives right at the cross section of the year’s biggest forward looking trends — foldables and 5G, and unlike some of the concepts we’ve seen to date, the product does so with panache.
Xiaomi doesn’t want to miss the 5G bandwagon — the company just unveiled its first smartphone that comes with a 5G modem at a press conference in Barcelona. The Mi Mix 3 5G is a new variant of the Mi Mix 3, a phone that Xiaomi originally released in October 2018.
The company is trying to create a bezel-less phone with the Mi Mix line. Instead of a notch or a punch-hole display, Xiaomi has opted for a sliding front-facing camera. The result is a 93.4 percent screen-to-body ratio. You can find two cameras on the back of the device, which give you the ability to shoot slow-motion videos at 960 frames per second. The handset body is made of ceramic.
Everyone’s favorite MacBook knockoffs are back, with two new models. Of course, for all the talk of stolen trade secrets. Huawei’s got a strong track record of making seriously compelling and premium Windows laptops, and this latest batch certainly doesn’t appear to an exception.
Design wise, the systems are pretty similar to their predecessors (which, in turn, makes them pretty similar to Apple’s), but for a “cleaner logo” that removes the flower icon from the top, instead just opting for the company’s name.
Why do we need a transformation
There is a future ahead of us, and it is very important for us to stand integral and focus on what is ahead of us, In other to compete with the standard the future is setting for us.
what do we actually mean by the “digital future” In Simple English, Digital future refers to the idea that all businesses will operate digitally in the future.
