How IT should prep for Apple's public OS betas

Credit to Author: Ryan Faas| Date: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 09:22:00 -0700

As has become Apple’s standard practice in recent years, the company will soon roll out public betas of iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra. Both are expected to arrive by the end of June.

Public betas can be useful for Apple and other tech companies. They accelerate feedback and can ensure that bugs — including ones that internal testing might not spot — get fixed before the final version of an operating system ships. And because public betas are exciting for early adopters who want to play with new features of an upcoming upgrade before everyone else, they tend to generate useful buzz.

Why So Many Top Hackers Hail from Russia

Credit to Author: BrianKrebs| Date: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 14:29:11 +0000

Conventional wisdom says one reason so many hackers seem to hail from Russia and parts of the former Soviet Union is that these countries have traditionally placed a much greater emphasis than educational institutions in the West on teaching information technology in middle and high schools, and yet they lack a Silicon Valley-like pipeline to help talented IT experts channel their skills into high-paying jobs. This post examines the first part of that assumption by examining a breadth of open-source data. The supply side of that conventional wisdom seems to be supported by an analysis of educational data from both the U.S. and Russia, which indicates there are several stark and important differences between how American students are taught and tested on IT subjects versus their counterparts in Eastern Europe.
