Ett cv i it-branschen kan se ut ungefär hur som helst, långa som romaner eller kryptiska som berättelser av James Joyce.Dödligt tråkiga eller genuint upplyftande.Det finns fällor man ska undvika att fastna i. Här tipsar IDG News om fem saker du bör undvika när du skriver ditt cv.Du har säkert hört att ett cv ska vara på en eller två sidor.Jo, för att det antas att de som läser dem inte har tålamod för längre alster.Å ena sidan, om det handlar om ett en yrkesroll där många detaljerade beskrivningar av kompetens, och erfarenheter, är viktiga kanske ett cv som bantas till två sidor känns för ytligt.
För konsultbolagen är det så klart angenämt att uppdragen trillar in i rasande takt.Det svåra blir när allt ska bemannas.Med fortsatt svårighet att hitta tillgänglig kompetens inom många viktiga områden är det svårt att fylla hålen via rekrytering.Resultatet blir istället att allt bolagen plockar in fler och fler underkonsulter, inte sällan via olika konsultmäklare.Den modellen funkar naturligtvis i stunden, men är inte den metod som konsultbolagen önskar sig.Det säger Sogetis Sverige-vd Sergio de Brito, som konstaterar att man har olika modeller för hur man tar hjälp utifrån, och att det just nu är högt tryck.
Roger Johanson är en doldis på den svenska techscenen men inte desto mindre än av dess verkliga tungviktare.Via riskkapitalfonder är Skandia idag ägare i till exempel Spotify, Snapchat, Uber och Twitter.För något år sedan såg Roger Johanson också till att Skandia blev direktägare i Klarna genom att investera 200 miljoner kronor i bolaget.Under Roger Johansons ledning har Skandias riskkapitalportfölj utvecklats mycket starkt där investeringarna i techfonderna sticker ut extra mycket.Avkastningen inom området venture, där investeringar i techbolag ingår, har legat på i genomsnitt 20 procent de senaste fem åren.Det innebär att vi idag är Sveriges största ägare i det segmentet , säger Roger Johanson.
It s only been a few months, but the Google Assistant has already become a reliable companion for me.The daily weather forecast, sports scores, news reports, and Google s ever-present smarts make it something that fits the test for what makes a good technology.The presence of the Google Assistant in the Pixel and Google Home, however, brings into sharper focus the other side of that two-edged-sword of new tech.Other competitors won t let up, with Microsoft pouring tons of resources into Cortana and Apple continuing to invest in Siri.On a surface level, the workflow looks rather similar to Alexa s skills, with you able to launch a specific bot that then can perform a range of tasks related to its specialty.My hope when this reaches the mainstream is that Google s APIs and developer support turns the Assistant into a natural, reliable conversationalist.

Forget about a thousand words — in the future, pictures might just save your life.A new imaging technique shows promise at better identifying the telltale signs of disease, according to results of a new study.Called HySP or Hyper-Spectral Phasor, the technique improves on a basic technique used by medical researchers: Molecules glow differently under various wavelengths of light, notably fluorescents think black lights , and layering these types of images together provides a picture of the molecule s health.Doing so is slow and labor intensive, however.The new algorithm makes it easier.More: Researchers develop next-gen laser based on fluorescent jellyfish proteins
Julkisuuteen nousseiden betoniongelmien mahdolliset korvausvastuut ovat epäselviä.Rudus toimitti Turun yliopistollisen keskussairaalan laajennuksen työmaalle betonia, jonka laatuongelmien takia laajennus valmistuu näillä näkymin vajaan vuoden myöhässä.Samoin Rudus toimitti betonin Kemijärvelle Kostamontien alikulkusillan rakennustyömaalle, jossa silta purettiin ja rakennettiin uudestaan huonon betonin takia viime kesänä.Määrä on suhteessa iso, sillä Liikennevirasto tutki pistokokeilla 18 maantiesiltaa.Liikennevirasto selvittää nyt lujuuspuutteiden vaikutuksia ja niihin liittyviä korvausvastuita, kertoo yksikön päällikkö Minna Torkkeli Liikennevirastosta.Siltala ei kommentoi sitä, mistä Rudus ja Mestek keskustelivat tai mitä ne ovat mahdollisesti sopineet.
Lily Robotics, which three years ago set out to create a flying camera, is shutting up shop and returning $34m to customers who had placed pre-orders.The firm announced yesterday that it had conceded defeat in its race against the "clock of ever-diminishing funds" despite the capital raised for the $899 camera-copter.Lily Robotics said it was winding the company down because it simply hadn't managed to secure the necessary financing to manufacture its first units, in but the latest whimper of the heralded quadcopter camera market.GoPro's shares nosedived last year following a terrible third-quarter revenue report, and a recall of its Karma camera drone after reports that several units had lost power mid-flight.In 2015, the company behind the troubled ZANO nano-drone project pulled the plug, leaving thousands of Kickstarter backers in the lurch, and the hotly anticipated Drone Racing League has fallen somewhat short of eclipsing other spectator sports.Lily had reckoned it was on to a winner with what it called "the world's first throw-and-shoot camera", pitching that all consumers had to do was "throw it in the air to start shooting" as the copter "flies itself and uses GPS and computer vision to follow you around".
With the Windows 10 Creators Update expected to drop in the next few months, Microsoft is putting little unmentioned goodies into Insider Preview builds.We saw that recently with Dynamic Lock in Build 15002, and now Windows 10 s anticipated Game Mode has shown up in the more recent Build 15007, according to MSPowerUser.Windows 10's Game Mode makes your PC prioritize its resources to maximize game performance.PCs already do that already to a certain extent, but many gamers including this one have to shut down a number of programs running in the background to free up extra resources for the best results.The concept of a game mode is also nothing new as some programs, such as anti-virus suites, come with a game mode feature so they don t tax a PC s resources during critical moments in Battlefield I or Survival mode in The Division.And the recently launched Windows 10 preview build 15002 introduced "app throttling" to perform similar tricks with non-gaming applications.
Those of us in userland may rarely have to worry about the nuts and bolts of encryption, but they exist nevertheless and must be replaced or updated now and then.Google is taking aim at one particularly stubborn nut, public key verification, with a new open source project called Key Transparency.It s a sequel of sorts to Certificate Transparency, a project with similar aims but, necessarily, a very different implementation.Both address a common problem on the internet: the need to verify that the person or server you re connecting to is the one you think you re connecting toOne solution is something like Keybase, a collection of verified users and their various cryptographic credentials PGP and all that .In other words, you should be able not just to trust a verified address that you find online, but that address should double-check itself as part of the process of establishing a connection, in order to prevent things like man-in-the-middle attacks.
The long-awaited Android 2.0 update for Android-based wearables will finally arrive in early February after several delays, Google revealed in a note to developers.The update, which was supposed to make its way into smartwatches powered by Android in late 2016, faced a delay as the Mountain View company decided to try out developer previews first as it does for its smartphones.Although the exact date of the rollout is not known, it will be sometime in the month of February depending on when the wearable manufacturers make it available.The upcoming update warns developers that Play Store won't show apps that are not optimised for the platform.In order for them to work, the applications will need to be tweaked.Wear 2.0 is also expected to support standalone apps that don't need phones to be connected to Wi-Fi networks.
If I have taken two lessons from 2016 they are to bear disappointment and expect surprise.Once in a while I come up with a joke or a conceit which I am convinced will find favour with my followers on twitter and go viral.Then the clocks struck 2017 and the following floated on to the floor of my timelineIn response to Morgan saying he liked to openly block people, so they would know they were suffering.I shared it onwards with the above addition, thinking little of it.You can post messages of up to 140 characters which can be seen by anyone who choses to follow you.
Det uppger Tesla i ett blogginlägg.Chris Lattner beskrivs som en nyckelperson på Apple och har arbetat på företaget i mer än ett decennium.Nyhetsbyrån Reuters skriver att Lattner i går skickade ett meddelande till samtliga Apples utvecklare att han lämnar Apple senare den här månaden för en möjlighet på ett annat område , utan att precisera vilket företag det rör sig om.Senare bekräftade Tesla alltså att han ska leda mjukvaruutvecklingen av autopiloten.Det här är en betydelsefull seger för Tesla.I en position där de tidigare inte hade någon heltidsledare får de nu in en person som är högprofilerad i mjukvaruvärlden.
We re living in a selfie world, and anything that helps us take more selfies is sure to make a mint.Drone makers seem to have figured out that, instead of taking pictures of our neighbors backyards, what we really want to do is find new ways to take pictures of ourselves.You may laugh.But the drone makers aren t dumb.At CES 2017, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas last week, there were 39 exhibitors in the Drones Marketplace, up 56 percent from a year earlier.I walked through the marketplace, which had an incessant buzzing noise.Drones are expected to generate $1.2 billion in revenue in 2017, up 46 percent, according to Shawn Dubravac, chief economist at the Consumer Technology Association, the trade group that puts on CES.Unit sales of drones are expected to hit 3.4 million units, up 40 percent.I came across a woman in a cage at the Hover Camera booth.She had a chirpy voice and went on to describe the Hover Camera Passport, your foldable, self-flying personal photographer.
From the Agathidium vaderi mite to the Yoda pupurata worm, Star Wars has recently inspired a number of biological discoveries.A new species of primate named after the franchise's original hero Luke Skywalker.A group of international researchers, including Sam Turvey from the Zoological Society of London, has discovered a gibbon never before recognised by science in the tropical forests of south west China and dubbed it Skywalker hoolock gibbon.The name was given partly because the team is made up of Star Wars fans and partly because the Chinese characters of its scientific name Hoolock tianxing mean "Heaven's movement", reports the BBC.Following the news, Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the films, tweeted: "So proud of this!First the Pez dispenser, then the Underoos & U.S. postage stamp... now this!

Jeremy Roche, the founding CEO of FinancialForce, is stepping down, the company announced on Friday.Roche will be replaced by Salesforce's former platform boss, Tod Nielsen, who was previously CEO of Heroku and COO of VMware as well.Roche will continue to serve a special advisor to the management team.The leadership change comes just 18 months after FinancialForce raised $110 million in funding.At the time, FinancialForce was valued at roughly $530 million, according to Pitchbook.The 7-year-old startup has raised $220 million in funding so far.FinancialForce's software, built on top of Salesforce's platform, takes care of things like accounting, forecasting, and supply chain management.In an interview with Business Insider, Nielsen said the management shakeup isn't due to any sort of problem at FinancialForce.Rather, it was Roche who requested the change."Jeremy has been great at laying the foundation, building the company up to this point.
While business consumers continue to reject traditional marketing strategies, they are ever more interested in gathering information and learning about products before they buy without all the pressure of a regular sales pitch.Here are a few of the reasons that inbound marketing will be your number one priority for B2B outreach in 2017:The problem with traditional marketing strategies is that they often called upon your potential customers regardless of whether or not they were ready to buy.After being contacted repeatedly about products they didn't want or weren't ready for, they often blocked your ads well before they realized they had a need.Inbound marketing overcomes this challenge by inviting potential customers into your sphere to read and learn no matter where they are in the buyer's journey.Curiosity alone can be enough to reach a customer and begin building a relationship that will be profitable down the line.
Republican lawmakers have slammed Julian Assange on Wednesday 4 January after President-elect Donald Trump seemed to have sided with the WikiLeaks founder rather than the US intelligence community.On Wednesday morning, Trump posted a series of tweets quoting Assange following the latter's Fox News interview, once again voicing doubt over Russia's alleged role in hacking the Democratic National Committee and other political organisations during the election campaign.Also said Russians did not give him the info," Trump tweeted.In a separate tweet, Trump quoted Assange who, during the interview with Sean Hannity at the Ecuadorean embassy in London, described the US media coverage on the matter as "very dishonest".Speaking to conservative radio host Hugh Lewitt, House Speaker Paul Ryan called Assange a "sycophant for Russia" who "leaks... steals data and compromises national security"."I think he has not yet received his Russia briefing yet.
