The Most Popular Universities for Computer Programming Degrees

The most popular universities for computer programming degrees

One of the most pursued degree programs in the world is computer science (CS). Like in the united states, it is ranked 3rd in terms of students’ preference. The used parameters in ranking them are the quality of programs offered, a number of research programs conducted and published to the public, the prospects of graduates to secure jobs and finally, the amount committed to funding research projects.

Thus, if you are planning to join a certain college, it is good to check its CS ranking and also do a background check on its reputation as you might spend years pursuing a course which no one will be interested in.

The following are some of the best computer science schools that are popular in the world.

.NET or Java – Which Is Better?

Microsoft’s .NET, or ASP.NET framework, is a software designed for developing and executing applications on Windows operating systems. Though .NET can and does support connectivity with non-Windows systems, it provides features and functionalities that were specifically designed for running and creating applications on the Windows platform. Java, on the other hand, refers to a set of programs and standards, or a “programming language,” that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. Whereas .NET is designed to run on Microsoft platforms, Java is designed to run on all types of systems. Some people argue that one is better than the other, but the truth is that both come with their merits and pitfalls. Which is right for you really all depends on your needs and budget.

The Current State of the Tech Industry

For quite some time, the tech industry has been one of the healthiest. In fact, it’s often named one of the fastest-growing industries of the year. However, it’s only natural for that growth to slow down to some degree over time.

The good news is, the tech industry is still in a great place. As things come full circle and some of the previously avoided trade work is now in higher demand, tech is still one of the fastest-growing industries. Here’s what you should know about the tech industry in 2018 and beyond.

Linux Just Turned Twenty Five: A Look Back

Linux

The Humblest Origins

It’s been a bit past 25 years since the world was graced with the Linux operating system.

Technically, Linux’s story starts in 1991 when Icelandic wunderkind Linus Torvalds posted to the comp.os.minix board (that was a Usenet message board, kind of like the Reddit of its day), announcing he was starting an Open-Source clone of Unix as “just a hobby.”

Containers Vs VMs : Top 5 Differences you must know

Virtual Machines and Containers offer virtualization technology for creating scalable solutions.  Virtualization allows to quickly build and deploy  a large number of hosts or containers in a very short time and saves time and money as compared to installing and deploying physical servers.

Virtual machine ( VM )  have been around for few years from now and containers are picking up as new alternative to VM.  KVM, Xen, Hyper-V, AND ESXi are some of the popular hypervisor technologies for creating and managing VMs. Linux container technology have been available for more than 10 years in the form of LXC  but Docker containers have gained popularity in the last few years. Beside Docker other container technologies are – Solaris Containers, AIX Workload Partitions and FreeBSD jails

Here are top five difference between VMs and Containers.
