AMD Unveils the World’s Most Powerful Desktop CPUs

ZDNet reports:

In the never ending war between the chip giants, AMD has released a salvo by unveiling what are the world’s most powerful desktop processors — the new 24-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and 32-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X… These 3rd-generation Ryzen Threadripper Processors are built using AMD’s 7-nanometer “Zen 2” core architecture, and both chips feature 88 PCIe 4.0 lanes with extraordinary power efficiency.

On the performanced front, AMD claims that the new 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 3970X offers up to 90 percent faster performance over the competition… This performance doesn’t mean the chips are power-hungry either, with AMD claiming they deliver up to 66 percent better power efficiency compared to previous generation processors. The new chips do, however, need a new socket. The new socket is called sTRX4, which offers expansion for serious multi-GPU and NVMe arrays, quad channel DDR4, ECC support, and unlocked overclocking…. [T]hey both will be

Python Finally Overtakes Java on GitHub

“The hit programming language Python has climbed over once-dominant Java to become the second most popular language on Microsoft-owned open-source code-sharing site GitHub,” reports ZDNet:

Python now outranks Java based on the number of repository contributors, and by that metric Python is now second only to JavaScript, which has been in top spot since 2014, according to GitHub’s ‘State of the Octoverse’ report for 2019…

Another interesting aspect of GitHub’s report is its ranking of fastest-growing languages. Google’s Dart programming language and Flutter, for building UIs for iOS and Android apps, are getting major traction with developers on GitHub. Dart was the fastest-growing language between 2018 and 2019, with usage up a massive 532%. It was followed by the Mozilla-developed Rust, which grew a respectable 235%. Microsoft is experimenting with Rust in its Windows code base because it was designed to address memory-related security bugs — the dominant flaw-type in Microsoft

Build an end-to-end application with LoopBack, Cloudant, and React.js

In this tutorial, learn how to build an end-to-end React.js application that serves as a dashboard to display sales data that is stored in a Cloudant database. See how to use LoopBack 4 to expose REST APIs to connect to the Cloudant database so that the frontend dashboard can call the APIs.
Overview
The are two main parts of this tutorial:

Part 1: Create the APIs connected to Cloudant using LoopBack: See how to create a LoopBack application lb4-sales-analytics that connects to a Cloudant database.
Part 2: Create the React application that calls the REST APIs created in Part 1: Learn how to build a dashboard application, lb4-sales-react-app, using React.js.
Prerequisites
To complete the steps in this tutorial, you need to:
Install Node.js 8.9+ and LoopBack 4 CLI.
Review LoopBack’s set of command line interfaces that help you create the LoopBack artifacts more easily.
Get the code for part 1 and part 2 so you can follow the examples
