FIRST, LET’S INSTALL FLAKE8:
$ sudo pip install flake8==2.0
Note: It is important to set the right version when installing Flake8, since there are some versions that are bugged and will prevent the GIT hook to work properly (like the 2.1.0 version).

Even though Magento has a native inline translator, it doesn’t work for CMS pages and static blocks. For different languages, Magento has the option to create one CMS page or static block for each different language and assign it to the correct store view.
This issue came up when developing a new Magento clothing eCommerce Platform, specifically when we needed to make the site available in multiple languages.

I currently work on a project that uses Techsmith Jing as a Corporate Tool. Jing is used to create videos for demos and to reproduce bugs on tracking tools among other things. However, Jing has one big problem: it can only be run on MAC and Windows systems. For that reason, creating a video for a demo was a tough task for co-workers with Linux stations.
After some research, I realized that Techsmith had never planned the Linux migration of Jing. After exploring different tools with the same features that Jing offers in the market, I could see that none of them fulfilled my expectations. I suggested to one of my coworkers, “What if we create a Jing Linux version using Python?” He agreed and we picked up the challenge and started the development process of LinC.

According to Tholons, both, the city of Buenos Aires and Córdoba rank among the best outsourcing destinations in the World. Unquestionably, Argentina’s software industry is smaller than the other IT industries in the globe like India’s, Ireland’s or the Philippines’, however, many Argentinean and South Americans cities are regarded as world class service centers.

We spend so much of our time online on our phones and laptops that is easy to forget that there are still plenty of people who are not connected to the internet or that do not even know what a computer is. We are so used to hearing about income and economic inequality that we don’t see that ever widening gap between the rich and poor people in the world is also brought about by technological progress; the so called technological gap.

No single technique or engineering process can guarantee 100% success in software development. In fact, picking a software development approach has more in common with joining a cult than it does with making a technical decision. Too often the human element is overlooked in the process.
Another factor is that many companies will not even attempt to evaluate different methodologies, but simply embrace the most popular or trendy one. The fact is there is a vast number of methodologies and techniques, that if chosen correctly, can make our work easier and more efficient.
