Microsoft-owned GitHub says it now has more than 100 million developers using the code-hosting service to contribute to software projects. GitHub's user numbers are up from 73 million in 2021 and 40 million in 2019, which was a year after Microsoft acquired it for $7.5 billion, with 28 million users, and gained cross-platform desktop development framework Electron. If GitHub's 100 million users are all active developers, it perhaps reflects how the nature of software development is changing. Also: Memory safe programming languages are on the rise. Here's how developers should respond SlashData, for example, estimates there are 24 million active developers worldwide.
Computing started in April 1936 with the invention of the first electronic computer by IBM. It gave new hope towards coding languages which was a previously unknown field. What if someone told you, the hunt for codification in languages started way back? Like many ancient Indian forgotten legends. One example is Panini's "Ashtadhyayi".

Java is also the most widely used programming language by all developers and programmers to develop machine learning solutions and enterprise development. Similar to Python, Java is also a platform-independent language as it can also be easily implemented on various platforms. Further, Java is an object-oriented and scalable programming language. Java allows virtual machine technology that helps to create a single version of the app and provides support to your business. The best thing about Java is once it is written and compiled on one platform, then you do not need to compile it again and again.

Python is a multi-paradigm programming language. It supports different programming approaches. Python is also an object-oriented programming language. Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a programming paradigm based on the concept of "objects", which can contain data and code that manipulates that data. In Python, classes are used to define the structure of an object, and objects are instances of a class.
Scikit-learn or sklearn is a machine learning library for the Python programming language. This library provides various classes and functions for classification, regression, and clustering algorithms. The sklearn library is mostly written in Python and it is built on NumPy, SciPy and Matplotlib Python library. The sklearn library has three main types of objects. They are estimators, transformers, and predictors.
At least in neuroscience, mainly 2 models have been mostly used (or abused): Granger causality and Dynamic causal modeling (DCM). Those are, at the same time, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Granger causality (so called from its inventor) is based on the idea that if one time series (called the "predictor") has some predictive power for another time series (called the "predictand"), then past values of the predictor should contain information that can help forecast future values of the predictand. To test for Granger causality, researchers typically use statistical techniques such as regression analysis or vector autoregression (VAR) to estimate the strength of the relationship between the two-time series. If the predictor series is found to significantly improve the forecast of the predictand series, it is said to have Granger causality with respect to the predictand.
The Linux Foundation has today announced that its AgStack project will host a new open-source code base and computation engine that offers a data dataset of registry data for agricultural fields to aid in food traceability, carbon tracking, crop production and other field-level analytics. The computation engine is fully automated and creates, maintains and hosts the global dataset based on code contributed by Dr. Sherrie Wang, Dr. Francois Waldner and Professor David Lobell at The Center on Food Security and the Environment at Stanford University. Funding for the project came from various organizations, including the NASA Harvest Consortium. Said to be the first of its kind, the AgStack Asset Registry dataset was built and is continuously updated using data from satellites and actual field registrations that contain information on boundaries, not ownership. The data is then used to train machine learning models to ascertain more boundaries.
Software-testing firm Tiobe, which maintains a monthly tracker of the popularity of the vast array of programming languages available to software developers, has picked C as its programming language of 2022. Despite it being placed third in Tiobe's January 2023 index, the popularity of C rose faster than all other languages last year, up by 4.26% compared with January 2022, the company said. Here's a list of the most popular programming languages and where to learn them Runners-up this year were C, the second most popular language, which grew in popularity by 3.82%, and Python, the top language, which grew by 2.78%. Having fallen from third, Java is now in fourth place, growing 1.55%. "The reason for C's popularity is its excellent performance while being a high level object-oriented language. Because of this, it is possible to develop fast and vast software systems (over millions of lines of code) in C without necessarily ending up in a maintenance nightmare," says Tiobe CEO Paul Jensen.
