The latest Java certification is now out, the Java 11 Certification. Ever since Java 9 and Java10 was out, programmers were speculating that what will happen to Java certification now? Will, there is be a new Java 9 certification or Java 10 certification? will there be a new Java certification every 6 months, following the Java SE release cycle? Well, Thankfully, nothing of that sort happened, a new Java certification every six months would have been a crazy idea, not just for students and programmers but also to all the party involved including Oracle itself. Now the big question is what has been changed in Java 11 certification and should you go for OCAJP 8 or OCAJP 11 certification? There is not much change between Java 11 Certification and Java 8 Certification.
The GCP or Google Cloud Platform is a slightly late entrant in the world of public cloud computing but it has completely changed the public cloud landscape in the last few years, particularly the monopoly of AWS on Cloud has been challenged. It's still neither the most popular public cloud platform like Amazon Web Services, nor the darling of corporate world like Microsoft Azure but its Performance, Tools, and innovation of Google is attracting more and more companies on Google Cloud Platform, particularly in the areas of Big Data and Machine Learning. With tools like Bigtable, BigQuery, and libraries like TensorFlow, Google Cloud Platform is quickly becoming the go-to platform for Machine learning innovations. Because of all these, there is an increased demand for Cloud experts who are familiar with GCP and Google Cloud Platform concepts and tools.
Whether you are an AI expert or a Computer Science students, you will come across Python Programming language sooner or later in your career. Starting its journey in 1991, Python has now captured the Programming world. Started as just a scripting solution for trivial stuff, Python is now everywhere. With its awesome libraries and frameworks, Python is driving Data Science, Web Development, Machine Learning, Server Side development, Automation, and General Programming stuff and that's why it makes sense to Learn Python. Unlike some Programming languages like Java or C++ which is good for server-side and complex programs but not suitable for simple things, because of its awesome libraries and vibrant community, you can do almost everything using Python from object-oriented programming to writing simple scripts.
Cloud Computing is becoming an important skill for any Software developer or IT professional today as more and more companies are moving towards Cloud for their infrastructure and service needs. It pays to learn Cloud Computing today as the most likely application will be solely building and deploy in the cloud in the future. No matter what your role is, if you are working in technology, cloud computing is going to affect you, one way or other. Anyway, if you want to learn cloud computing then you have come to the right place, in this article, I am going to share some of the best courses to learn Cloud computing basics in general and with AWS and GCP in particular.
Yesterday, I was speaking to one of my friend who was not from the programming background but working as a teacher in a college of Engineering and Technology in the countryside of India. He just turned 40 and he is also the father of two wonderful kids. He has been teaching Maths to B.Tech students on a private engineer college for the last 15 years. He is earning Ok but he always wanted to explore the world and he now realizes that a Programming job can provide him that opportunity, so he contacted me to find out whether it's too late for a Programming career. He is keen to learn Web development, particularly using latest technologies like Angular, React, Vue.js, and Node.js but he is worried that it might be just too late for him to become a Web developer or work in a software development company.
The Spring Security is one of the popular projects under the Spring framework umbrella which address security requirements of modern web applications. Since Security is a paramount concern for enterprise Java applications, good knowledge of a security framework like Spring security goes a long way in someone's career. It not only helps you to become a full stack developer but also opens a lot of opportunity in terms of job and career growth. There is a lot of demand of Java developers who know the Spring framework and understands how to secure their application on the web. They are also one of the highest paid professionals in the Java world, where a Java developer with Spring + Spring Security getting anywhere to 120,000 - 150,000 USD or equivalent across the world. Even in India, you get a lot of good opportunities, interesting work, and a higher salary if you have these skills.
I often receive queries like should programmers create an alternative source of Income, or should programmers create their own blog or website? both are very important questions and there was a time when I advise programmers to create their own blog, not just to learn and improve their understanding of the technology they know, but also to earn money while doing things you love, but time has changed. Now I advise Programmers and Software Developers to create and sell online courses on Teachable, Udemy, or any other platforms. The reasons are still the same, you learn and earn but the method has been changed. A blog is still a good way to establish yourself online but it requires a lot more effort and time to earn something meaningful.
Hello guys, suppose you have multiple checkboxes in your HTML page and you want to retrieve all checkboxes which are checked? How will you do that in jQuery? Well, you can use the pseudo selector like :checked to get all checked checkboxes. This selector checks for the checked property of checkbox and returns only those checkboxes which have this property. For example, following jQuery selector will return all the checkboxes which are checked:
In this, we are first selecting all input elements where type is a checkbox and then adding: checked to filter only those which are checked.
I have worked with a lot of source control systems like SVN, CVS, TFS, VSS, Mercury and I had always wondered, why so many source control systems? why not just one. It's one of the mandatory software tools for development and everyone needs a version control and code repository, there should be a standard solution. It seems Git and Github has solved that problem now. Now, Git is everywhere from open source to closed source, from small startups to big Investment banks but there was still legacy projects which were lying on SVN and CVS, but they are now also started moving towards it. Until last year, I was working on at least one project on SVN but now that has also moved to Git. This shows the dominance of Git and that's why it becomes extremely important for both new and experienced programmer to learn Git and Github.
