TechCrunch: “The internet is so big and so powerful that it’s going to need a lot of developers to build things like social media apps, news feeds, and chat bots.
In fact, it’s already doing so, and they’re doing so well.
There are already more than a billion people working in software development.”
The Guardian: “It’s going the way of the dinosaur: the Internet of Things.”
Newsweek: “For years, the most important thing about the web has been the user interface.
Now, that interface is slowly starting to get out of date and the user base is shrinking.
A growing number of companies, from Apple to Facebook to Google, are building and developing websites that are increasingly more like apps, rather than websites.”
Wired: “If you’re a young web developer who’s ready to go to work, you should check out our interview with the co-founder of Facebook’s new cloud computing division, Sean Parker.”
Ars Technica: “Today’s best mobile browsers can deliver some of the best experience for web browsing, but they’re often more like social networking sites than modern desktop browsers.”
Wired (TechRepublic): “Today, if you want to get a quick overview of the technology in use on the web, Google is your friend.
Its own data centers, its own data warehouses, and its own developer tools are all built with a focus on data, not data consumption.
That’s not just because Google wants to make money, it also means it can provide an insight into what’s really driving the web’s growth.”
Ars technica (TechCrunch): “The new WebAssembly technology is just the latest piece of WebAssembly-powered hardware that promises to make the web even faster.
But while it may be the next big thing, it isn’t the first.
There’s plenty of time to catch up.
The next big things that might come out of Web Assembly include WebRTC, WebSockets, and more.
[It’s] a technology that will likely be on the forefront of any new Web project.”
Wired tech blog: “WebAssembly has been in the works for over a year, and it’s a promising new tool for the web.
And it’s getting closer to reality.
But just like its predecessor, it still has a lot to learn before it’s ready for prime time.”
Wired technica: [WebAssembly is] a promising technology that promises the future of the web.
“Ars: “With the rise of social networks and mobile devices, the web is going to be much faster and more responsive.
But there’s still a lot more to do.
“Wired’s TechCrunch article: “This week, Facebook announced a new initiative that it says will enable it to build an “internet of things” for the entire world.
Called “Cloud Platform,” the initiative will bring together a team of “developers, engineers, and other leaders” from the likes of Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft.
The group will build and deploy an open platform to allow developers to create and deploy their own applications on top of the internet.
The new initiative comes at a time when the web faces an unprecedented amount of fragmentation and fragmentation is one of the biggest challenges facing the internet, says Facebook chief information officer Chris Anderson.
The company says that its Cloud Platform will enable developers to “create applications on the cloud that work on the same infrastructure as websites.”
The company’s Cloud Platform is already building a prototype of a cloud-based app for iOS and Android that it hopes will be available to developers by the end of the year.
Anderson says that it will be a “world class platform that enables us to build applications on a very large scale.”
The platform, which will be built on top the AWS Web App Engine, will allow developers “to build a variety of web apps that run on the Cloud Platform.”
While Facebook’s Cloud App Engine is already available to a limited number of developers, Anderson says it will soon be available for “a broader range of developers.”
Anderson says Facebook is currently building an application that runs on AWS Lambda.
While it’s not clear if Facebook will be making this application available to the public, Anderson said that the company will be releasing it for “public consumption in the coming weeks.”
“This is really a way for us to get the world’s developers to share their work on a platform that’s open, accessible, and accessible to the rest of the world,” Anderson said.
Anderson also announced that Facebook has partnered with OpenShift to create an open source project that will enable the “cloud infrastructure ecosystem to scale and grow.”
OpenShift, Facebook’s open source web app platform, is used by more than half of the Fortune 500 companies.
The project will allow OpenShift developers to quickly create and test their applications on OpenShift’s infrastructure.
OpenShift is the underlying technology behind Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and many other popular cloud-focused platforms. OpenStack
