Tesla’s long-awaited, revamped Autopilot is moving one step closer to becoming a reality.

After years in development and no shortage of serious setbacks, the California-based electric car giant is set to begin beta testing its new self-driving software next week. Following a complete system rewrite, the select group of chosen drivers will gain access to the update, which will include Full Self-Driving (FSD) mode, a significant advance from previous editions. In April, founder Elon Musk announced that the autonomous feature would be publicly available by the end of 2020, but that deadline is fast approaching.

Getting fully operational is critical for the automaker on more than one front. Not only will it be a boon to the company for being the first major marque to have such autonomous driving widely available, but it is also a necessity before Tesla can deploy the self-driving

SpaceX has successfully launched 60 more “Starlink” satellites into orbit as part of its mission to beam high-speed internet back to Earth.

The Elon Musk-led company released multiple videos of the takeoff to social media this morning, which took place at Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 7:29 a.m. EDT. Liftoff yesterday was scrubbed due to unfavorable weather.

Blasted into space onboard a Falcon9 reusable rocket, the satellites will be added to a constellation of satellites that is currently more than 400-strong.

“Falcon 9 launches 60 Starlink satellites to orbit, completing SpaceX‘s 43rd flight of a previously flown rocket booster,” the company tweeted earlier today.

Footage uploaded by the company included the Falcon9’s first stage landing on the “Of Course I Still Love You,” a droneship platform that’s stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. The touchdown happened within 8 minutes and 30 seconds, the

In first days of testing among three companies, INTRUSION Shield shuts down threats without obstructing business operations

Preliminary beta testing results from installations of INTRUSION Shield™, the highly anticipated cybersecurity solution from INTRUSION Inc. (OTCQB:INTZ), underscore the significant need for companies to change their approach to cybersecurity. Within the first three days of beta testing, Shield identified and immediately shut down a total of 461,562 threats to three companies, defending them against possible cyberattacks.

INTRUSION Shield is the first cybersecurity solution to protect organizations by not only identifying malicious traffic on a company’s network, but also using artificial intelligence (AI) to immediately neutralize threats on both incoming and outgoing traffic, effectively stopping ransomware, viruses, malware, data theft and more. Where other solutions only alert IT managers and often cannot even identify silent threats, Shield identifies and immediately stops them.

“Our beta testing results reveal there is no way a

Python programming language.

Playwright for Python is designed to speed up the process of testing new web applications by automating the process from start to finish. Built on the 
GitHub platform,

the Playwright API allows developers to run tests on all modern web browsers, including the new Microsoft Edge browser, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.

Developers have to add another tool to their arsenal in order to keep up with the ever-changing times. Search engine optimization (SEO) is more important than ever now as more consumers are home and are turning to online businesses. Being able to find, and easily and quickly navigate through a website can make or break a business. 

“At its core, SEO is working on your site to help site rank better in Google or Bing….This can help get more users to click on the site when they’re searching,” James Leisy, senior technical SEO at DeepCrawl, said in a webinar on SD Times. 

While there are a number of different ways users can stumble upon a website, Leisy explained 53% of all trackable web traffic comes from organic search. If the website doesn’t behave properly or is too slow, it can damage a company’s direct revenue and even it’s brand

Members of the Wisconsin National Guard assist people at a COVID-19 testing facility at UMOS, 2701 S. Chase Ave. in Milwaukee.

Most people waiting in line at five testing sites in the state when the website went down were still tested.

The website — covidconnect.wi.gov — allows people to register for testing in advance with their personal information and gives them a QR code to scan at a testing site. They also get an email with their test results rather than a phone call.

Wisconsin National Guard spokesman Maj. Joseph Trovato said the website outage is likely linked to a much larger Microsoft outage affecting many different web platforms on Monday.

Sideloading platform SideQuest is taking $650K in early investment from BoostVC, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey, and The Fund. The relatively small preseed funding will help SideQuest’s Shane Harris and Orla Harris build a testing service and other tools for virtual reality developers.

“I am investing in SideQuest because I believe in their vision for VR development and distribution,” Luckey said in a prepared statement. “No HMD manufacturer should have a stranglehold on the VR ecosystem or unilateral control over what people run on their VR headsets, and when I look at Sidequest, I see the spirit of Oculus Share.”

When the initial wave of consumer VR interested began to crest in 2016, some developers used a startup called Fishbowl VR as a testing service. That startup, however, didn’t survive as the market transitioned toward Oculus Quest. SideQuest, meanwhile, sprang up after developer Shane Harris realized in 2019 there was need

What would happen if we change one simple element of our landing page? How about we add more text or change our pricing? What will happen? These are hypothetical situations that partners and spouses who run businesses together will argue over endlessly and there is absolutely no reason for it.

The question is which method to use to get the most useful results.

Enter the world of A/B testing. It’s a concept that’s been around longer than the internet has. It was used with direct mailers to test different offers and designs. It’s been tried in newspaper, magazine and even on billboards in the past to measure response rates. On the internet it’s more technologically advanced but the goal is still the same.

Software testing is an important part of the release of a new software. Before release, a lot of testing has to be completed in order to know about existing glitches and errors. Based on results obtained from testing, such glitches can be rectified. QA testing training can be completed both online as well in classrooms.

The need for QA testing

Quality control is very important for any software. QA testing helps in rolling out a robust software product. Codes and functionalities need to be checked in an effective manner. After a candidate completes QA testing, he or she is in a position to deeply scrutinise the quality of a software product.

Professionals can either be freshers in the field of software testing, or they may be already familiar with the technologies. Freshers need to understand why software needs testing and how it tends to acquire glitches. Candidates have to learn … Read More
