Google has indicated that it will support the Pointer Events API in Chrome. This decision comes after a lot of back-and-forth opinions throughout the development of the API.
At this year’s Defrag conference, several themes emerged: identity management and security, quantified self and (of course) robotics. And, although the conference claimed to have APIs as a common theme (and it did), the APIs themselves were part of a much bigger and louder conversation about what they enable. Along with big data comes APIs' ability to use the data to instruct the things around us. We may be enabling data transfers among machines faster than we can interpret the data and the legalities around using it.
Application testing has become both complicated and expensive, since multiple programming languages are often used in application construction. Looking to simplify the application testing process while helping to reduce costs, Coverity this week announced the general availability of version 7.0 of the Coverity Development Testing Platform, which includes additional algorithms for analyzing C# code and Java security.
