What skills should software engineers have for the next decade?

What Skills Should Software Engineers Have for the Next Decade - Slate?
Answer by Pedram Keyani, worked at Google, was an early engineer at Facebook, and now at Uber:If you are looking to be a great general-purpose software engineer, then the skills for the next five to 10 years are very similar to the skills needed in the past five to 10 years:
  • Strong understanding of the fundamentals of computer science, including databases, networking, compilers, data structures, algorithms, and operating systems design
  • Highly analytical and able to decompose big problems into smaller problems
  • Sequence and prioritize what needs to be done
  • Work well in teams (meaningful work is done in the unit of teams)
If you are looking to optimize for trends in the industry or what you think the real world will demand of computer technology, then focus on machine learning, computer vision, mobile development, or distributed systems.
I have one caveat regarding machine learning. Most people think of it as this sexy field (which it is), but most practical applications of machine learning really depend on strong system design focused on effectively using memory, IO, and extracting features that don't reside on the machine making the classification. Most graduate course are focused on the underlying classifiers, but really the magic is in how they are applied to real-world problems.  - Slate

Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul

A must read for the young, current and past generations. Professor Eddie S. Glaude Jr clearly articulates causality of continued institutional devaluing of Blacks and the implications for future generations of African Americans.

AfrocatioN has raised concern of this issues for years on the social imbalance and the acceptance of that imbalance by both White and Afro Americans. The implication of Inheritance over Composition allows the perpetuates of social devaluing through Private, Protected and Public access to knowledge and Skills needed to overcome the imbalance. The American Cast System enforced as an abuse of power under the color of law.

Product Description

A powerful polemic on the state of black America that savages the idea of a post-racial society

America’s great promise of equality has always rung hollow in the ears of African Americans. But today the situation has grown even more dire. From the murders of black youth by the police, to the dismantling of the Voting Rights Act, to the disaster visited upon poor and middle-class black families by the Great Recession, it is clear that black America faces an emergency—at the very moment the election of the first black president has prompted many to believe we’ve solved America’s race problem.

Democracy in Black is Eddie S. Glaude Jr.'s impassioned response. Part manifesto, part history, part memoir, it argues that we live in a country founded on a “value gap”—with white lives valued more than others—that still distorts our politics today. Whether discussing why all Americans have racial habits that reinforce inequality, why black politics based on the civil-rights era have reached a dead end, or why only remaking democracy from the ground up can bring real change, Glaude crystallizes the untenable position of black America--and offers thoughts on a better way forward. Forceful in ideas and unsettling in its candor,Democracy In Black is a landmark book on race in America, one that promises to spark wide discussion as we move toward the end of our first black presidency.

Maine gov uses racially charged language on drug epidemic -

Yet again, its those black folks fault
  • Whites have a drug epidemic, its those blacks fault
  • Cliven Bundy gets caught stealing from the government, its those blacks fault
  •  National debt, its those blacks fault
  • White rancher arrested for causing a forest fire, its those blacks fault
  • White women birth out of wedlock, its those blacks
  • Black man shot while shopping in Walmart, its his fault
  • Black 12 year old Kid shot while playing, its his fault
  • Black teen shot while walking home, its his fault
  • Black man shot while walking home, its his fault
  • Black folk enslaved against their will, its their fault
  • Black being assassinated across the nation with no hint of accountability
The lack of white accountable clearly illustrates who's at fault.  Enough standing around listening to this privileged BS as the black body count continue to rise with no end in sight. It shall only get worst as the privileged fall from their perch of injustice. The ruling class shall continue to elevate their attacks and hatred towards minority if not held accountable for their actions.

'Ironic' If Ted Cruz Nominated After Obama Birther Debate, White House Says - ABC News

'Ironic' If Ted Cruz Nominated After Obama Birther Debate, White House Says - ABC News: "It would be quite ironic if after 7 or 8 years of drama around the President's birth certificate, if Republican primary voters were to choose Senator Cruz as their nominee," Earnest joked to reporters. "Somebody who actually wasn't born in the United States and only 18 months ago renounced his Canadian citizenship."
