CakePHP Development – Best Open Source Framework for PHP Web Development

CakePHP is by far the best open source framework for PHP development as it offers a number of unique features that make web development easy and enjoyable.

CakePHP is easily the best form of PHP for developing websites. PHP is a very flexible coding language, but at times it is the very PHP that leads to haphazard and untidy programming. The friendly PHP community and flexibility make web development using PHP fulfilling experience, but when programmers insert files and codes from diverse sources in the PHP code, things can get a little messy. PHP in the right hands is an excellent tool; PHP, in inexperienced hands, can create a lot of trouble.

PHP is an evolving language and, with the passage of time, new positive changes constantly increasing the utility value of PHP. There are numerous frameworks in the market; these frameworks add value to PHP, make it possible to … Read More

Finding Programming Help on the Internet

Rentacoder.com is a really helpful website. It is similar to eLance.com, but it specializes more in programming and coding while eLance.com covers more general services such as writing, translation, legal, accounting, etc.

It is more difficult to register on Rentacoder than on eLance. Similarly, Rentacoder has been burned by credit card fraud so you must take additional steps to validate your card for payment. The sign up process consists of the usual completion of the sign up form, setting up your credit card as the payment method, scanning or faxing both sides of the card to Rentacoder, and then receiving a phone call from Rentacoder validating the card. This is handled quickly and efficiently.

One reason for using Rentacoder over eLance is the minimum project cost on eLance is $ 50.00 and Rentacoder does not have a minimum.

Let's discuss how to use Rentacoder.

The world’s most popular programming languages

C was the most popular programming language in December 2020, according to the TIOBE Index.

This time last year, C was below Java in these rankings, but the latter programming language has lost 4.72% of popularity share since December 2019, which has allow C to claim the top spot.

According to the Index, Python – which is in third place – has gained the most popularity compared to December 2019, increasing by 1.9%.

TIOBE noted that it will be announcing its 2020 programming language of the year in January 2021, and will base this on which programming language has increased the most in the ratings over the course of 2020.

It noted that Python will almost certainly win this award as it has seen much more growth than any other programming language – with the closest competitors being C++ with 0.71%, Groovy with 0.69%, and R with 0.6%.

ControlFlag: Machine programming research tool detects bugs in code

Intel unveiled ControlFlag – a machine programming research system that can autonomously detect errors in code. Even in its infancy, this self-supervised system shows promise as a productivity tool to assist software developers with the labor-intensive task of debugging.

ControlFlag

In preliminary tests, ControlFlag trained and learned novel defects on over 1 billion unlabeled lines of production-quality code.

ControlFlag and debugging

In a world increasingly run by software, developers continue to spend a disproportionate amount of time fixing bugs rather than coding. It’s estimated that of the $1.25 trillion that software development costs the IT industry every year, 50 percent is spent debugging code.

Debugging is expected to take an even bigger toll on developers and the industry at large. As we progress into an era of heterogenous architectures — one defined by a mix of purpose-built processors to manage the massive sea of data available today — the software required

Smithsonian’s NMAAHC offers virtual programming for Kwanzaa, other December events

Here’s what the National Museum of African American History and Culture in D.C. has in store for the month of December.

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture unveiled its plan Thursday for a month’s worth of digital programming, initiatives and interactive media for December.

One of the key features of the recently-announced programming is a daylong “cross-country digital community initiative” called “24 hours in a Time of Change.” The event will be hosted Dec. 11.

The program will highlight the trials, failures and triumphs that Americans have faced in 2020, from the coronavirus pandemic to the social upheaval that pushed issues of racial equity and police brutality to the forefront of national conversation.

The Smithsonian will stream live programming from 10 of its museums and centers throughout the 24-hour sharing period.

On top of that event, there will be a number of featured programs, such as
