  Mainframe developers, especially those with COBOL skills, may not get as much attention as, say, app developers — except from a number of employers. While the development community has been dazzled by opportunities in online and mobile environments, it seems to have forgotten that mainframes still run huge parts of the largest government agencies, financial institutions and even airlines. A sweeping survey commissioned by Micro Focus in 2009 found that 70 percent of the business and transaction systems around the world run on COBOL, and 90 percent of global financial transactions are processed in COBOL. The language supports over 30 billion transactions per day. The average American still interacts with a COBOL program 13 times a day.   Industry...

  If you write articles, create Web pages or write Kindle ebooks, chances are that you’ll need a fast, no-frills HTML editor. I’ve been doing all these jobs for a number of years and I think the Bluefish editor is the best, most productive product out there. Unlike LibreOffice, MS Word and even Kompozer, Bluefish doesn’t add any extra HTML tags to your text. One of my pet peeves with regular word processors and HTML editors is that they want to make the decisions on what to tag and how to do it. Many times they insert tags that are totally unnecessary and useless. It makes the HTML very hard to read and debug. I like Bluefish’s minimalist approach to...

John Resig, who created jQuery, developed the computer science page on Khan Academy using JavaScript and Processing.js What’s Under the Hood Khan Academy’s computer science page is different from the rest of the site in a number of ways. It allows you to do more than just watch educational videos.

Each of them reviewed and marked up her resume, arming Roberta with real world feedback. Some of their advise could apply to you....

  Apple’s courtroom brawl with Samsung Electronics left the Cupertino king standing victorious last week, following a favorable jury verdict in its patent litigation case. But there were other winners as well that day, it’s just that they just don’t know it yet. Android developers are also winners. More specifically, Android developers who were planning to mimic features of Apple’s iPhone and iPad. The ruling is ikely to have a chilling effect on their plans. That’s a good thing? Yes. Because because out of legal adversity comes the potential to try something new, something different. Ironically then, Android developers may want to adopt the mantra “Think Different.” Faced with a potential block down the road, people tend to seek workarounds that...

  This year’s first and second quarters saw a 56 percent increase in email-based attacks that penetrated traditional security mechanisms, the security firm FireEye says in its Advanced Persistent Threat Report, released today. During the first half of the year, the company saw continued increases of malicious infection activity and an intensified danger of email-based attacks as cybercriminals increasingly employ throw-away domains to infiltrate enterprise networks. The report is based on data from the FireEye Malware Protection Cloud, a service powered by thousands of company appliances that observe these interactions. What it means is simple firewalls and anti-virus protection isn’t enough, and relying on signature detection alone is inadequate. FireEye’s data is just the latest in a series of reports that track...

  CIOs are outsourcing crucial business tasks more than ever before. A survey of more than 200 IT decision-makers from small businesses to large enterprises found that 32 percent of organizations will increase their IT outsourcing investments in 2013. Some other headlines from market research firm Bluewolf’s report: 48 percent of the average outsourcing budget is spent on application services. 48 percent of organizations will hire more contractors, rather than full-time staff in      the next 12-18 months. 16 percent of all outsourced data center operations are managed in the cloud. “It’s clear that CIOs are rethinking the strategies around outsourcing,” says Bluewolf marketing campaign manager Amber O’Neill. “The increased look towards mixed sourcing models, such as staff augmentation, managed services, outtasking, project-based...

  Target is turning to a social and mobile recruiting campaign to reach as many IT pros as possible.  Now seeking to fill 165 job openings in its IT department, the retailer figures it makes sense to fish for job candidates where they’re biting. “We’re finding that the closer we can get to technology talent using tools like mobile and social, the better the results,” says Nate Swanstrom, vice president of marketing and multichannel for Target Technology Services. Its recruiting campaign relies on banner ads appearing on apps used by 35 media outlets including ABC News, Macworld and Mashable, for example. Last year, the Minneapolis-based retailer increased IT hiring by 44 percent and continues to build out its tech staff...

  I wanted to display the screen of my Galaxy I smart phone on my Linux notebook and a quick search of the Web turned up the droid VNC server as a solution. The droid VNC server allows users to demo their phone applications via a computer hooked up to a projector for seminars and classroom presentations. In case you’re needing to do the same thing, I’ve laid out the steps to make it happen. Download the VNC server from Google Play and it requires that the phone is rooted. My phone is running Android version 2.2. The setup was straightforward. Start the program and click the options button, then Settings. Under the Settings heading, you’ll find options to set...
