Pair Programming: developing in pairs to do things better.

Pair Programming: collaboration and efficiency In a development project, an effective method for rapidly integrating a new developer is peer programming. This approach involves two or more people working together (ensemble programming) on the same piece of code. Using this method, teams can share knowledge and solve problems collectively. Pair Programming vs Ensemble Programming: understanding the subtleties Trivially speaking, we need to distinguish between pair programming, where developers work in pairs, and ensemble programming, where at least three people work together. Both of these methods aim to develop in groups, thus encouraging the sharing of skills and the collective upgrading of competence in less mastered subjects. In a related topic, we have written an article on alternation in development and the resulting rise in skills. The many advantages of developing together. Peer programming offers several advantages. It enables developers to enhance their technical and functional skills on complex subjects. It's also an excellent way of integrating new members into an existing team, or facilitating the transfer of knowledge when talent leaves. Quality and methodologies associated with Pair [...]

What carbon footprint for IT?

What carbon footprint for IT? Today, one of the most topical issues is the environment. Kilowatts and kilowatts are consumed in data centers. They need to consume less energy. The digital sector alone accounts for 4% of all CO2 emissions, 1.5% more than air transport. Although specific needs are evolving, overall requirements remain the same. A few years ago, the overall need was to make more money by spending less. Today, the need is to keep our businesses viable while taking into account the scarcity of our planet's resources and their over-exploitation. The famous day when we consume the equivalent of a year's worth of the planet's production is arriving earlier and earlier every year. Today, companies are increasingly aware of this environmental constraint and need to become "greener". The carbon footprint is ultimately a good indicator of pollution, even if it should not be considered the only one. In our technical choices, we need to give priority to what is most efficient in terms of ecology. An IT infrastructure that needs to adapt [...]

Mobile application security: vulnerabilities to watch out for

Computer systems and computers are not the only ones with security vulnerabilities: mobile devices and applications are also very vulnerable to cyber attacks. Some vulnerabilities are more frequent on this type of technical environment and it is necessary to detect them, from the creation phase of an application to the end of its life cycle. I - Security on Android and iOS: two rooms, two atmospheres On the smartphone market, two operating systems predominate: iOS and Android. In June 2021, their combined market share is 99.9% on the French market. Source : Apple or Android Nation? Statista These two operating systems have their own specificities in terms of application development. Indeed, while iOS applications are mainly programmed in Objective-C language, Java is used on Android. The same goes for their installation, configuration, programming environment, design, testing and management of the cybersecurity strategy. II - The main types of vulnerabilities in mobile applications Before listing the main vulnerabilities observed in mobile applications, it is important to remember that there are two categories of vulnerabilities in mobile applications.

Infrastructure automation: 5 key trends CIOs are watching

More than 90% of companies will work with an automation architect by 2025, compared to less than 20% today, according to Gartner. The stakes of infrastructure automation are high for I&O (Infrastructure & Operations) teams. Indeed, more and more organizations, such as large corporations and small and medium-sized companies, are using infrastructure automation based on artificial intelligence (AI or Infrastructure Automation) and machine learning. The advantages are obvious: tasks previously performed manually (installation, configuration, maintenance of the infrastructure) can now be performed by software. This not only saves time, but also reduces errors. It is therefore normal that IT departments are interested in this and are starting to implement such solutions in the information system. It is a question at the heart of the competitiveness of companies. Gartner even popularizes the term hyperautomation, a notion that encompasses the whole trend around automating the entire organization, beyond the IT infrastructure. When it comes to IT infrastructure, there are several ways to implement an automation strategy. The Gartner study highlights the ones that inspire "the most confidence": VMware [...]
