    PHP Types:: Boolean

    Booleans ¶ This is the simplest type. A bool expresses a truth value. It can be either TRUE or FALSE. Syntax ¶ To specify a bool literal, use the constants TRUE or FALSE. Both are case-insensitive. Typically, the result of an operator which returns a bool value is passed on to a control structure. Converting to boolean ¶ To explicitly convert a value to bool, use the (bool) or (boolean) casts. However, in most cases the cast is unnecessary, since a value will be automatically converted if an operator, function or control structure requires a bool argument. See also Type Juggling. When converting to bool, the following values are considered FALSE: the boolean FALSE itself the integers 0 and -0 (zero) the floats 0.0 and -0.0 (zero) the empty string, and the string “0” an array with zero elements the special type NULL (including unset variables) SimpleXML objects created from empty…

    When Facing the Unknown, Agility is Your Superpower

    Source: CIO UKIn March, as the number of coronavirus infections grew exponentially across the United States, SkyLakes Medical Center in rural Oregon prepared for an influx of patients. In 48 hours, they renovated and opened an entire floor that had not been used for patient care in years. The city of Buffalo, New York knew its non-emergency and city services hotline was going to be more important than ever. Realizing they needed to field calls while working from home, they routed everything through the University of Buffalo’s managed call system (wow, nice teamwork). If you are a parent, you likely remember the exact moment your child, along with millions of others, was sent home…

    Using the Python Interpreter

    Source: Python.org The Terms ‘Interactive’ and ‘Shell’ The term “interactive” traces back to the Latin expression “inter agere”. The verb “agere” means amongst other things “to do something” and “to act”, while “inter” denotes the spatial and temporal position to things and events, i.e. “between” or “among” objects, persons, and events. So “inter agere” means “to act between” or “to act among” these. With this in mind, we can say that the interactive shell is between the user and the operating system (e.g. Linux, Unix, Windows or others). Instead of an operating system an interpreter can be used for a programming language like Python as well. The Python interpreter can…

    Virtualenv

    Source: VirtualEnv virtualenv is a tool to create isolated Python environments. Since Python 3.3, a subset of it has been integrated into the standard library under the venv module. The venv module does not offer all features of this library, to name just a few more prominent: is slower (by not having the app-data seed method), is not as extendable, cannot create virtual environments for arbitrarily installed python versions (and automatically discover these), is not upgrade-able via pip, does not have as rich programmatic API (describe virtual environments without creating them). The basic problem being addressed is one of dependencies and versions, and indirectly permissions. Imagine you have an application that needs version 1 of LibFoo, but another application requires version 2.…

    What is Python? Powerful, intuitive programming

    Why the Python programming language shines for data science, machine learning, systems automation, web and API development, and more Source: Infoworld.comDating from 1991, the Python programming language was considered a gap-filler, a way to write scripts that “automate the boring stuff” (as one popular book on learning Python put it) or to rapidly prototype applications that will be implemented in other languages. However, over the past few years, Python has emerged as a first-class citizen in modern software development, infrastructure management, and data analysis. It is no longer a back-room utility language, but a major force in web application creation and systems management, and a key driver of the explosion in big…

    Making employee experience a CIO priority

    Employee dissatisfaction can have a long-term negative impact on your business. Here’s how to turn things around. Source: CIO MagazineCIOs are under tremendous pressure to cut costs, produce innovative new products and services, hire top talent, and even transform the organization’s business model. With so much on the CIO’s to-do list, the internal employee experience is in danger of falling to the bottom of the CIO agenda. Digital transformation has set the CIO’s attention on external customers, but “there’s a piece of the IT organization whose customer is the employee. Yet that always seems to come last in terms of attention and funding. IT departments generally don’t put the best…

    Nederlandse werknemers zijn vooruitstrevend in IT

    Bron: cio.nl Nederlanders zijn dol op technologie. Uit onderzoek blijkt dan ook dat ze in hun werk veel technologieën gebruiken, maar de gevolgen daarvan zijn niet altijd positief. IT zou hier op moeten inspelen. Onderzoek van Workfront (State of Work 2020) onder werknemers uit verschillende landen laat een aantal eigenaardigheden zien van Nederlanders. Niet minder dan 94 procent van hen geeft aan hun rol belangrijk te vinden. Dat is meer dan in omringende landen zoals Duitsland en het VK. Daarnaast is men ook bovengemiddeld trots op het werk dat men doet, alleen de VS scoort met 94 procent boven de 92 procent van de Nederlanders. Bovendien zijn Nederlanders vooruitstrevend in…
