New Programming Languages that you need to know

As a result of the hurdles faced by data scientists, Statisticians/Mathematicians in the combination use of Matlab, C in the iterations of functions, R to perform statistical calculations and all combined are cemented with the use of python programming language, Julia was developed, to support the use of Matlab, C, R and Python, all in one by scientists and Mathematicians in solving problems with the use of one language.
Julia, which supports Lisp-like macros is fairly similar to python with close similarities to the python library and extra features such as a built-in pocket manager for installation of add-on functionality and external library.

Clojure programming language is a Lisp language that treats data and itself as linked lists and tends to make a lot use of macros.
It is a general purpose language, similar to Java. It is also Java compatible rather than re-compiling separate functions and run it after its been altered. Clojure allows live interaction with a running programming to have a view of what the separate function do.
Founded in the year 2007 as one of the several languages built on the virtualization part of Java, (JVM) making it Java code and Java runtime environment compatible.

3. RUST:
Regarded as an alternative to C++, as it was designed to share some traits in terms of performance and memory management but with more checks during compilation. Therefore, code maintenance becomes a lot easier in long-term projects collaboration.
Rust,which was developed by Mozilla and supported by Samsung is an ideal programming language for system developers who desire to design safe, long-life span and more modern low-level softwares.
According to Stackoverflow 2016 developer survey, Rust was voted as the most loved language.

Developed by Google in order to make managing dependencies easier and also allow application to scale up more readily. Go programming language was designed for networked systems, computer clusters, multi core processors and web applications.
It is easy to install as they are compiled to a single executable rather than requiring installation of dependencies alongside and also easy to code.
Installation files are available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Raspberry Pie..

Are you a programmer or you desire to change the world with your fingers, the above programming languages are worth knowing.

LAPTOPS- Safety Tips

Laptops are one of the most essential gadgets for businessmen these days. Businessmen carry

out their each and every business tasks with the help of laptops alone. Hence they need a good

company laptop with which they can work for long periods without any interruption. Laptops

need to be maintained properly for good usage. What are the things that we need to keep in

mind while using laptop? How to use a laptop smoothly so that it lives longer? Let us see them in


Laptop batteries: This is the first thing that gets damaged in any laptop. But it is entirely in

our own hands to ensure the safety of our laptop by avoiding the damages that happen to the

laptop. Battery of the laptop needs to be charged and discharged at regular intervals. If you

overcharge the battery, it will damage the battery and it will lose its strength very quickly. It is

always advisable to use the laptop after charging the battery. Don't use the laptop while it is still

getting charged, because that will reduce its battery life.

Always keep the laptop in a clean and dry place. This is very important because the dust

and moisture are the biggest enemies of laptops. If the dust and water get into the  laptop

motherboards, it will damage the laptop completely and you need to take it to the person who

knows to repair it. So always ensure that you keep it in a dry place.

Use a clean piece of cloth to wipe the screen of your laptop. Dust gets gathered on the screen

and that makes it look blurred. So wiping it with a clean cloth is the best solution for the

problem. That will make the laptop look completely new again. This is very important if you want

to work with it without getting any interruptions in the middle while you are working. Wipe even

the back cover of the laptop also with a clean piece of cloth.

Always use a laptop cooler for keeping it cool. If you are performing several tasks at the same

time on your laptop such as listening to the music, checking the mail and typing etc, that will

affect the performance of the laptop when it gets overheated. So using a good laptop cooler will

help you to solve that problem. These days, every laptop comes with cooling system inside it, but

sometimes still those arrangements may seem insufficient and we need to depend on additional

coolers for keeping it cool.

Finally, any laptop needs to be maintained properly in terms of the memory used in them.

Organize the components of different local disks properly and make separate folders for

different types of files. That will help you to keep your laptop in the best condition. Usually a

laptop may have different types of files like word files, PowerPoint files and spreadsheet files

etc. all these files should be kept in separate folders and that makes it easy for you to search the

particular file that you need.

Happy Birthday To The World Wide Web(www)

Twenty-five years ago, the World Wide Web was just an idea by Tim Berners-Lee at the CERN lab in Switzerland.
On March 12, 1989 he outlined a way to easily access files on linked computers, paving the way for a global phenomenon that has touched the lives of billions of people. The WWW is both praised & reviled but it has unmistakably changed how we communicate & that can not be denied..
The www has brought to us exposure and improvement in knowledge..
With the World wide web, streaming of videos and pictures emerged. Now we can sell and purchase online, banking has been made an easy task, whereby we can check our financial accounts and make transactions.. Softwares and files are available online.
How has the world wide web (www) been of help to you???

With the aim of providing safety and security of human drivers in a convoy mission by having a cab without the control of a soldier, 2 research and design corporations- The US Army Tank-Automotive Research Development and Engineering center (TARDEC) and Lockheed Martin Global Security and Aerospace Company were able to design a hardware and software that can autonomously navigate through obstacles in both urban and rural region.
A demonstration was carried out last month (January, 2014). At Fort Hood, Texas to test the design and it was confirmed to be able to navigate through real world obstacles such as oncoming traffic, road intersections, stalled and moving vehicles, pedestrians and traffic circles.
According to David Simon, AMAS program Manager for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control: " The AMAS CAD hardware and software performed exactly as designed and dealt successfully with all of the real-world obstacles that a real-world convoy would encounter.."

Having a driverless car has been on research by Google Incorporated, Toyota and Audi and soon the globe would be hit with this new tech design.
So, I guess you wouldn't be amazed when you see a convoy of multiple types of vehicles passing bye.
