By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: According to press reports if terms like SQL, Python and JavaScript aren't on your radar, employers may not be interested in hiring you. However, there is good news for those without coding skills: You can acquire these skills without having to study computer science in college -- sometimes for free in online MOOCS .Roughly half of the jobs in the top income quartile -- defined as those paying $57,000 or more per year -- are in occupations that commonly require applicants to have at least some computer coding knowledge or skill, according to an analysis of 26 million U.S. online job postings released this month by job market analytics firm Burning Glass and Oracle Academy, the philanthropic arm of Oracle focused on computer science education, in Redwood City, Calif. In simple terms, coders write the instructions that tell computers what to do; in-demand programming languages include SQL, Java, JavaScript, C# and Python. This high number is thanks, in part, to the fact that it's not just technology jobs that now require at least some coding knowledge, says Alison Derbenwick Miller, the vice president of Oracle Academy. "Computing has become a tool in every industry,” which means that coding knowledge is now needed for workers across fields, she says. Indeed, everyone from business people who work with data to designers and marketers who create websites to scientists who conduct research now need at least some coding knowledge. Employers and employees -- even those who aren't in the technology field -- say the same. "having some knowledge of coding is essential for job seekers these days,” as it can help them understand the tasks of -- and work more effectively with -- other departments, including their tech and engineering teams.

Linux is thriving .Fedora Linux is the community version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or RHEL. Fedora 24 is reportedly comprised of a set of base packages that form the foundation of three distinct editions: Fedora 24 Cloud, Fedora 24 Server and Fedora 24 Workstation. Fedora, the latest - Fedora 24 - has arrived. Fedora is a reliable user friendly and powerful operating system. . The Fedora Project has embarked on a great journey... redefining what an operating system should be for users and developers. Such innovation does not come overnight, and Fedora 24 is one big step on the road to the next generation of Linux distributions. But that does not mean that Fedora 24 is some "interim” release; there are great new features for Fedora users to deploy in their production environments right now! The big change is that Fedora 24 is available in three flavours: cloud, server, and workstation. You can get it atwww.fedoraproject.org. It has several updates. Digital transformation is happening is happening in every sector .Linux is most popular operating systems used everywhere be it Smart phone or Tablet or Desktop or Lap Top or servers or cloud or Supercomputers .Linux Unix-like and mostly POSIX-compliantcomputer operating system assembled under the model of free and open-source software development and distribution. The defining component of Linux is the Linux kernel,an operating system kernel first released on 5 October 1991 by Linus Torvalds.The Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to describe the operating system. Fedora 24 brings with it a number of technical improvements, software upgrades, and under the hood. It's clear that the Fedora developers have been working closely with upstream sources to tightly integrate advances in everything from the kernel to GNOME, Systemd, NetworkManager, and GCC6 which have all been forged into a powerful core. However, that's about where it ends.Fedora (formerly Fedora Core) is an Linux distro . Fedora operating system is based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and owned by Red Hat. Fedora contains software distributed under a free and open source license and aims to be on the leading edge of such technologies.
