Stark Summer Coding Bootcamps

Goodness Summer, probably the best period of the year! While it's an opportunity to unwind, relax in the sun, and plan trips with loved ones, summer is additionally an amazing time to learn. In case you're a present understudy, educator, or expert hoping to figure out how to code, a late spring bootcamp is an incredible chance to figure out how to code in a brief time frame outline. Different coding bootcamps that offer summer courses to assist you with propelling another vocation in tech.

These contributions are explicitly customised to undergrads and those hoping to have a vivid summer learning experience.

Unmistakable Academy's Summer of Code is a 11-week JavaScript coding vivid intended for undergrads to put resources into their profession, fabricate a system, and make an arrangement of applications. Through workshops, exercises, and hands-on coding understudies will get familiar with the business standard programming strategies to exceed expectations as a coder.

Stark partner with Road Users Association

The application is expected to be in use at various parks in all states across the 36 states of the federation, including the Federal Capital (Abuja). The technology giant will manage and maintain every technical requirements and operation of the while the National Road Users Association will be in charge of its day to day running.

This initiative has drawn the attention of other notable agencies and organisations in the public transport sector of the economy, as a much-needed solution to combat the constant loss of lives and property on the Nigerian road especially on the highway.

Blockchain Frameworks to Build App

The blockchain is a proven technology that can be used anywhere. Interest in blockchain-based apps is increasing in all spheres. No matter the sphere you’re building software for — finance, commerce, healthcare, government, agriculture — you need to learn how to work with blockchains quickly and easily. For that, you have to choose a blockchain framework that meets your needs and fits your projects.

Below, you can find an examination of the six most useful blockchain frameworks and a comparison of their characteristics.

Exonum

Exonum is a blockchain framework developed for enterprise projects and launched in 2017 by the Bitfury Group. The Exonum source code is absolutely open, as are all application programming interfaces (APIs). Exonum provides access not only to the whole codebase but to client software for blockchain management. It was built with the help of Rust, one of the safest and fastest programming languages. Rust is currently faster than Java, C, C++, and even Go.

As a developer, you can use Exonum to build solutions for FinTech, GovTech, LegalTech, and many other fields. The main characteristics of this framework are the following:

  • Exonum is an independent system, as it doesn’t require mining and doesn’t depend on any cryptocurrency.
  • Exonum blockchains work very fast, processing about 5,000 transactions a second.
  • Exonum has a Light Client that can check the availability and correctness of user data as well as the anchorage status of that data.
  • Exonum relies on services that work similarly to smart contracts but are more flexible and adaptable.

Companies that use Exonum-based apps for their financial systems also get another benefit: Exonum avoids the possibility of double-entry bookkeeping and all sorts of document forgery.

Spy technology to track the virus, prompting fears of privacy invasion

Israel has approved the electronic tracking of patients using a digital technology that, until now, was used only for counterterrorism.

The controversial measure is raising constitutional privacy questions and criticism while the country deals with its own security during a public health crisis, and as Israel struggles to form its new government.
The tracking tool was pushed through as an emergency regulation without approval or oversight from Israel’s parliament, the Knesset. It will be used on the civilian population for the first time to allow the country’s internal security agency to track individuals’ phones in order find out where a coronavirus patient — or suspected carrier — has been and with whom they have come into contact. The Israel Security Agency (ISA), also known as the Shin Bet, can track the individual based on a national ID number and cell phone number.

Coronavirus pandemic changes life as we know it
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s transitional government unanimously approved the measure over the weekend. Insisting that even a slight delay would endanger the country, the 70-year-old Israeli leader bypassed the unformed parliamentary Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, which would normally have oversight over such a move, and authorized the measure as emergency regulation.

“Because the virus is spreading at a tremendous pace, a delay of even one hour in these tools can lead to the deaths of many Israelis, just as is happening with the deaths of thousands in Italy and in other places in the world,” Netanyahu said in a statement. The measure, which received approval from the Attorney General, can “slow down the spread of the epidemic and can save many Israelis from death,” he said.
What’s in the measure

To stop the spread of coronavirus, Israel has employed a variety of tools and stringent restrictions. Public gatherings are now limited to 10 people, leisure and entertainment venues are closed, restaurants and cafes are shuttered, public transportation is closed at night and on weekends, and Israelis are instructed to stay home unless it is necessary to venture out.
But this is arguably the most powerful — and most invasive — tool deployed to date.
The regulations used to approve the new measure give the ISA the power to collect cell phone data on the movement and contacts of coronavirus patients and people believed to have been infected over the past 14 days.

Amid coronavirus fears, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu sees an opening
However, the ISA is not allowed to store the data or to collect conversations or message from patients’ cell phones, and the agency will not be involved in supervision of patients or enforcement of quarantine restrictions. Instead, the ISA transfers the data to the Ministry of Health for handling.
The regulations also task Israel’s police with enforcing quarantine and isolation orders and empowers them to request and receive tracking data about civilians without court approval, bypassing one of the key safeguards in the tool’s standard counterterrorism usage.
Though the police are not required to track everyone under self-quarantine — a number already into the tens of thousands — they are allowed to randomly check individuals to ensure compliance.
A rushed process
Electronic tracking is one of the big guns in the ISA arsenal, allowing it to monitor the movement of terrorists in Israel and the West Bank, giving the secretive agency a picture of someone’s daily activity, personal contacts, movement, and more. But even when used for counterterrorism purposes, electronic tracking requires strict oversight and rigid legal approval.
Gabi Ashkenazi, a member of the opposition Blue and White party who led the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in the previous Knesset, ripped the measure’s rush approval.

“The government approved in the dead of night the emergency regulations, even though the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee began to discuss the issue yesterday — without being given the opportunity to implement it in a serious and complete way,” Ashkenazi said on Twitter Tuesday. “It is unacceptable that this is the way in which this is approved. Without parliamentary or public oversight.”
But Deputy Attorney General Raz Nizri called the measure “essential” to save lives, portraying the debate as a balance between the right to privacy and the right to life and public health.
