Feasting your programming appetite with microservices

I have been coding for more than 25 years and have used more than 18 different programming languages (and their associated frameworks), spanning every programming style from simple scripting, to procedural, to objected-oriented, to dynamic and functional — which is more attractive to the software engineering community these days.
Let me confess, every time I switch to a new language or style I always think, “Oh, hope I can also do that.” Trust me, no language is complete; no style is perfect. So, the only way to feast your programming appetite is to try something different which gives more flexibility. I honestly think the microservices style of application is the one that best delivers that needed flexibility…and the fun that most of us are seeking.

Your code on Github - What itz worth?

I am an open source proponent and contributor. As a hobbist I build lot of cool tools and apps which I keep posting onto my GitHub handle. However, to be frank with you so far I never posted any license agreement along with my code. May be I am bit lazy to spare time and research on the open source license models and identifying one which is suitable for me.

Recently while searching in Open Source Licensing models and implications I came across Steven Burnap  answer on stack exchange thread "Open source code with no license… can I fork it?". Further exploration of GitHub opensource license page  I found...

What happens if I don't choose a license? You're under no obligation to choose a license. It's your right not to include one with your code or project, but please be aware of the implications. Generally speaking, the absence of a license means that the default copyright laws apply. This means that you retain all rights to your source code and that nobody…

Top 10 Tech Trends 2016

1. The Device Mesh
A variety of other trends have led to an increased number of sensors embedded in many technologies and devices that we use personally and professionally. They become smarter as they gather more data on our daily patterns. Gartner predicts that these sensors, which tend to work in silos today will increasingly work in concert, leading to even greater insights about our daily patterns.

2. Ambient User Experience
Gartner refers to these devices and sensors’ ability to gather more contextual data as described above as AMbient UX. The challenge will be with application design, anticipating this level of device synchronicity and collaboration, for lack of better framing. Gartner posits that the devices and sensors will become so smart that they will be able to organize our lives without our even noticing that they are doing so

3. 3D-printing Materials
Though not a new trend, 3D-printing has caught its stride now that companies like Tesla are using it to build engine parts, an…
