ToughtWorks’ Technology Radar – new edition

15 02 2014

Is this new technology worth learning or maybe it is yet ready to use in production? ToughtWorks is a consulting company working, among others, on assesments of emerging technologies maturity.

Here is the new edition of its Technology Radar – January 2014. I am sure that everybody will find out what interests him in this document.

For me worth noting is JavaScript expansion – nowadays it is widely used, not only on client side in web browsers but also on the server side.

Another thing is SMS and USSD API growth. It did surprise me – I was really up to the HTTP APIs usage. Such situation may be good for telcos, but not very much convenient for developers.

Coursera & edX: take online courses for free

6 04 2013

There is plenty of various tutorials, videos and training materials on the web, however finding the one concise and valuable course may be difficult.

Coursera

Coursera is a place where you can find courses of many kinds: Arts, Economy, Education, IT and many more.

Coursera

These are organized and scheduled lectures with new lecture published weekly. All of them define how much time per week you need to devote (mostly it is about 4-6 hours per week). Courses are held by universities and experts. One of the best categories is Information, Tech and Design for UX experts. Some interesting courses are: Human – Computer Interaction (9weeks), Gamification (6 weeks) and Information Theory (15 weeks).

All of them are totally free.

edX

The same applies to edX – a lot of world class academies and universities.

edX

Wide range of topics is surely tempting, however I did not try these courses. Some examples are: Software as a Service from Berkeley or The Challenges of Global Poverty from MIT.
