The UK’s 12 most in-demand programming languages

Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Google Plus The most sought-after programming languages in the UK are SQL, JavaScript and C#, according to market tracker IT Jobs Watch. In terms of movement, C# has overtaken Java, which is probably understandable seeing as Java is primarily used for Android applications.  Other notable changes include Ruby moving up two places from 10th to 8th and most UK annual salaries either remaining the same or increasing slightly. Here are the top 12 programming languages most sought after by…

Essential Phone PH-1 review: Great form, terrible function

When Essential launched its inaugural handset, the PH-1, the hype was off the charts. Essential touted the edge-to-edge design, modular magnetic accessories, and near-stock home screen and apps. The only problem was the phone didn’t live up to any of it. It arrived more than a month late. The accessories were limited to a single high-priced camera. And the stunning sea-green color was nowhere to be seen. Six months later, Essential is fixing the least important of those problems. Starting…

Sony Xperia XA2 review: A solid Sony phone at a mid-range price

We’re still waiting for a new flagship phone from Sony, which will surely arrive at MWC, but for now the company has launched the Xperia XA2, a mid-range phone first shown off at CES 2018 alongside its larger brother, the XA2 Ultra. Sony hasn’t been a market leader in the smartphone world for a little while now, but it has delivered some very solid mid-range devices. With more competition at the price point than ever before though, can the XA2…

Apple HomePod review: Leaves a stain but not a strong impression Review

As smart speakers go, Apple’s HomePod is late to the party. Not only did the company miss its original launch date by a couple of months, but Google and Amazon have a healthy head start in the fastest-growing consumer technology segment. Showing up late with a product is nothing new for Apple. The company has made a habit out of not letting the competition pressure it into rushing to market with an unfinished product. The iPod, iPhone, and Apple Watch…

Smartron t.Phone P review | TechRadar

With more and more smartphones filling up the sub-Rs 10,000 segment, users are now confused more than ever. Companies like Xiaomi and Moto have filled the market with affordable options. Smartron, the Hyderabad based electronics company, has also launched the t.Phone P under this budget. But is the t.Phone P just another smartphone masquerading as an inexpensive entry level phone, or does it stand up to the tall claims? We find out.  Smartron t.Phone P price and release date The…

Matrix PowerWatch X hands on review

The Matrix PowerWatch X isn’t a gorgeous looking device when you first spot it on someone’s wrist, but it can do something incredible. When you first unpackage the PowerWatch X, you’ll realize it doesn’t come with a charger and that’s not a mistake – it’s because the smartwatch is powered by your body heat. That’s it, just your temperature. This isn’t a case of plugging it in and then getting a few extra hours of power from your body heat,…

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming review

When the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501 dropped last year, we suspected it would be the end-all and be-all for gaming laptops. That is, until we saw the price tag. Although it was a spectacle to behold – gorgeous and thin without compromising on power – the first notebook to leverage Nvidia’s Max-Q technology was out of reach for most gamers due to its $1,999  (£2,289, AU$3,929) cost of entry. The latest version of the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming, then,…

Top programming languages you should try

By Techworld staff | Feb 02, 2018 Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Google Plus There’s a reason why programming languages such as JavaScript, PHP and C# are so popular. They are simply the best at what they do and are in continued demand by employers. However, there’s plenty of scruffy, but innovative programming languages that can provide heaps of value to a developer.  Are you a developer? Find the latest jobs here. And as software demands evolve and grow, new and less widely accepted languages are gaining in prominence, offering developers…

HotSpot Shield review: It’s fast, beautiful, and definitely not for anonymity

HotSpot Shield in brief: P2P allowed: Yes Business location: United States Number of servers: 2,000+ Number of country locations: 25 Cost: $71.88 per year Before people got serious about VPN encryption post-Snowden, a top choice for encrypting your Wi-Fi connection was AnchorFree’s HotSpot Shield. It was free, easy to set up, and only required that you look at some ads injected into your browsing. That service is still around, but today we’re looking at HotSpot Shield Elite. AnchorFree’s paid service…

Tenda Nova MW6 Review – Tech Advisor

Tenda isn’t a well-known name here in the UK, and its new Nova MW6 mesh networking system might therefore struggle to compete with big-name rivals such as Google, Netgear and our own BT Whole Home Wi-Fi. It’s not the fastest or the most fully-featured mesh system we’ve come across, either. Even so, it still provides respectable speeds and good range and reliability, along with a competitive price that will appeal to many home users. The neat cubic design and quick…

Asus Flip 14 UX461: More grunt for your dollar Review

The proverb states that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and for mine, the Asus Flip 14 is not a device that will cause love at first sight based on its looks. But when you realise what lies beneath the typical Asus brushed metal appearance, and the attractive price point it sits at, then you might come to adore this machine. Aesthetically, the Flip 14 is yet another convertible PC, and where once we would have considered the…

Philips OLED 873 4K HDR TV (65OLED873) hands on review

The incoming Philips OLED 873 is, for all intents and purposes, a carbon copy of 2017’s 55-inch 55POS9002 (now renamed the 55OLED873), albeit in an altogether more generous 65-inch screen size. Quite why Philips hasn’t just announced it as a 65-inch 9002 is a bit of a marketing head-scratcher, but apparently the brand is intent on moving all its OLED TVs to a three digital model number (while its LCD range will stick with the standard four digit moniker).  Design…

Logitech Harmony Elite review | TechRadar

If you’re hastily upgrading your home theater setup in preparation for the Super Bowl, or just looking for a key addition to tie your myriad A/V devices together, then it might be time to consider Logitech’s Harmony Elite universal remote. Logitech’s high-end offering has been on the market for some time, although it remains a valuable option due to its wide compatibility and versatile, recipe-like custom activities. And it works with more than televisions, speaker systems, and game consoles: the…

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro review: Great value, but localisation required Review

The new 15.6-inch Mi Notebook Pro heads up Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi’s Apple-aping range of laptops: the Mi Notebook Air, which comes in 12.5-inch and 13.3-inch models, is pitched against the MacBook and MacBook Pro 13, while the Mi Notebook Pro has the MacBook Pro 15 in its sights. Of course, these Chinese imports are not really direct competitors to Apple’s laptops. To start with, they run Windows rather than macOS. Also, their specs are no match for Apple’s machines, which…

Asus ROG G703 review | TechRadar

There aren’t many laptops as large as the Asus ROG G703. This monster machine is designed to swat away the latest games, and it’s not concerned about being slim or light – instead, it’s one of the bulkiest notebooks we’ve ever seen. It’s one of the most expensive, too. It costs more than most of its rivals – but can it possibly be worth the money? Spec Sheet Here is the Asus ROG G703 configuration sent to TechRadar for review:…

MIniTool ShadowMaker review: Simple, free image backup

I’m always happy when a program makes backup quick and easy. MiniTool ShadowMaker makes me very happy. Being available in a free version that has all the features the average user needs makes me even happier. I’d say ecstatic, but hey, this is backup, not true love or world peace we’re talking about. Setup and interface MiniTool ShadowMaker is a 70MB download, and installs with just one process running in the background—its scheduler. As it’s a Windows-only program, and creates…
