It’s hard to imagine how primitive the world was just ten years ago. The mobile world was still relatively new. Machine learning was still yet to flourish and become a household term.

The mere thought of having machine learning models run on mobile devices was still the stuff of science fiction.

Of course, current mobile devices are up for the challenge. Now that it’s possible, we need to figure out the processes and governance around adding this feature into mobile apps.

Traditionally, mobile application programmers and developers work with various programming languages to construct a model with an abundant code sequence series to develop a mobile application. As a result, programmers and developers face potential issues when manually constructing a mobile application. These issues consist of long development periods, errors within codes using different programming languages, frequent maintenance of models to remain up-to-date, and a more expensive budget to onboard each developer.

Blazing fast 5G speeds are here but they aren’t all that useful on the new 5G smartphones. WSJ’s Joanna Stern packed up a motor home to see if the connection could power all her connected gadgets, including laptops, printers, Xboxes and camera-equipped doorbells.

Choosing a mobile app framework can be overwhelming; there are dozens available on the market to evaluate. From native frameworks written in Swift, ObjC, Java, and Kotlin to cross-platform frameworks like React Native and Xamarin, it can be really difficult to understand the key differences between all of them.

In this talk, learn the pros and cons of popular mobile app frameworks to help you determine which one is right for you.

This week, James is joined by friend of the show Marc Mercuri, Program Manager on the Azure Blockchain Development Kit Team, who introduces us to the world of blockchain. He shows us a full end to end scenario of why and how you would use blockchain in applications. He then walks us through the new Azure Blockchain Development Kit that simplifies development using blockchain for web and mobile with some fantastic Xamarin mobile apps.

Did you ever notice that the chip on your credit card looks an awful lot like a SIM card? I never really gave it much thought until my son asked why credit cards with chips are more secure than those with just the magnetic strips. It turns out that there’s a lot of high tech encryption and security going on and this video by LiveOverflow explores it all.
