In multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing, consumer goods such as cosmetics and nutritional supplements are sold directly to end-user consumers by freelance sales representatives. MLM organizations use clever commission systems to recruit customers into the sales workforce, creating an ever-growing marketing network.
Mixed reality describes the mixing of the “real” and “virtual” worlds using electronic devices. Often used as a synonym for augmented reality, mixed reality clearly has a much broader scope. This article will discuss some successful examples of its use, what the theoretical concept behind mixed reality looks like, and what Microsoft’s role in all of this is.
Surf the web without leaving a trail – that’s possible in Firefox using “private mode.” It’s quick to activate and can be used temporarily or permanently. Here’s a quick guide on Firefox’s incognito mode, explaining which data is actually concealed (and which data isn’t).
File formats like .jpg, .mp3 or .gif are well-known and can usually be opened on most devices without any problems. But the .jar ending is less common. These files require special programs to run them. We explain what this file format is and how you can open and run .jar files.
Refactoring is a process in software development where manual or automatic adjustments are made to improve inelegant parts of the source code. The aim of refactoring is to produce a source code that is functionally unaltered, yet structurally easily legible and useable. But what advantages and disadvantages does refactoring involve?
No software is bug-free. Fuzzing is a targeted approach for finding vulnerabilities in a software program. Using fuzzing tools, random input data is automatically generated and fed to the program for processing in order to see whether intentional or accidental mishandling caused the software to crash. If so, the software poses a security risk to the entire system.
Behavior-driven development (BDD) is a key component of agile software development. Instead of being based on a certain programming language, the technique utilizes a form of text that subsequently allows automated tests. BDD enables non-developers to use complex tools that check the functionality of software, thereby improving the end product.
For over three decades, Microsoft has offered Excel, an excellent solution for creating simple spreadsheets and calculating complex formulas and functions. In addition to its vast functionality, another benefit of Excel spreadsheets is that you can create and use macros to automate any process or task. We’ll show you how to enable macros in Excel.
Programmers use test-driven development (TDD) to manage software development by testing code components. The tests help to provide a clean architecture and reduce bugs. The TDD process is cyclical: After writing a test that fails, functional code is implemented which is then refactored.
A Linux container is either secure or flexible and simple. At least this used to be the case for a long time until the open-source project Kata Containers emerged and combined the best from both container technology and virtual machines. How did the open-source community behind the OpenStack Foundation (OSF) pull this off?
