The process, which is similar to what might have occurred in some ancient underwater hydrothermal vents, may also have relevance to the search for life elsewhere in the universe.

The number of European unicorns increased during the first half of 2020, says PitchBook’s latest report. The aggregate valuation of current unicorns in the ecosystem rose, too. In total, Europe saw its unicorn count increase by 10 in H1 2020, bringing the total in the continent to 53. Even though this seems largely positive, PitchBook’s European VC Valuations Report: Q2 2020, notes that the rate of newly minted unicorns could cool down as it becomes increasingly difficult to capture growth opportunities in the current uncertain macroeconomic environment.  “Furthermore, valuations of numerous lossmaking late-stage startups could come under scrutiny as revenue… This story continues at The Next Web

Python falls short in a few areas. For instance, Python isn’t the fastest language around, but third-party libraries like NumPy let you work around that. Where Python is most deficient, though, is packaging. That is, Python lacks a consistent internal mechanism for generating a standalone binary from an application. Go and Rust do this. Why can’t Python?It mostly comes down to Python not having a culture of such use cases until relatively recently in its history. And so, only relatively recently did third-party modules start showing up that allow Python apps to be packaged as standalone binaries. PyInstaller — which I covered previously — is one such app. In this article we’ll look at an even more elegant and powerful utility for Python app packaging, BeeWare’s Briefcase.To read this article in full, please click here
