AVG voor ontwikkelaars

Hoe om te gaan met de AVG in ontwikkelteams?

Bij het verzamelen, opslaan en beheren van persoonlijke gegevens komt tegenwoordig de Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming (AVG) om de hoek kijken. Deze verordening is sinds 25 mei 2018 van kracht en dat betekent dat vanaf dat moment in de hele Europese Unie (EU) vergelijkbare privacywetgeving geldt.

Draaideurbugs die komen en gaan

Als tester kom je onverwachte bugs tegen, dat is vanzelfsprekend. Je ziet
kleine, onbelangrijke bugs, kleine bugs die later toch een groot probleem blijken te zijn, spookachtige bugs die op een onverklaarbare wijze weer verdwijnen, draaideurbugs die komen en gaan. En zo af en toe kom je een bug tegen die er eigenlijk niet had moeten zijn.

Van Baarn naar Tokio: Prioritering

Door Carmen In Sponsoring

Sponsorship rolstoeltennisster Marjolein Buis
Wij sponsoren Marjolein nu een paar maanden en we hebben aan haar gevraagd om een blog te schrijven over prioritering. Marjolein behandelt in haar blog vooral de prioritering tussen privé en de druk om te presteren. Bij Marjolein heeft ‘presteren’ de betekenis van trainingen en wedstrijden, bij ons heeft ‘presteren’ de betekenis van onze werkuitdagingen. Michel Flens (CEO VX Company): “Ik herken daarin dat communiceren over je dilemma’s met prioriteren en keuzes maken, anderen laten weten waarmee je worstelt, heel erg helpt in zo’n situatie. In situaties dat de privé-offers of werkdruk even teveel worden, deel het met mensen om je heen. Dan sta je er niet alleen voor, kom je er samen beter doorheen en het voelt een stuk beter. Overigens, dit lukt mij ook niet altijd even goed, maar het klopt wél!”

IOTA: Improving your confirmation rate

The IOTA network concludes that a transaction is permanent when enough other transactions are directly or indirectly confirming it. Every transaction must confirm two older transactions, therefore the network benefits from a higher transaction rate, which is why dedicated users have decided to help the network by spamming transactions. In this blog, I will introduce an hypothesis about why the current spam might reduce the confirmation rate of other transactions and how you can overcome this when you build an application on top of IOTA and how the community could try and improve the confirmation rate.

After the teaser on the 3rd of May, the IOTA Foundation has now revealed the full meaning behind the long-awaited Qubic project.
